In a mask rut? There’s only so many disposable, flimsy blue numbers you can buy from CVS and toss a few days later before you go a bit sartorially stir crazy, no?
Creative Director, designer, and all around aesthete Samantha Angelo – who you no doubt follow as @TheEyeTravels – is selling some of the sweetest summery masks around. After being flooded with DMs from followers desperate to buy the chic, washable masks she was sporting on Instagram, Samantha decided to open her own Etsy shop, expanding her collection to include around thirteen fun styles for both men and women.
“This whole experience has shown me that I truly enjoy and look forward to connecting with people from all over the country and making sure they get something that will bring some joy to their lives during these uncertain times. When I designed the masks I wanted them to be something that people could look forward to wearing as much as possible. And after talking to so many people on social media about current events and all that is happening, many people don’t want to have to wear a mask, and I understand, it’s hard to breathe and you can get dehydrated. So influencing people to wear them and continue to wear them is so important.”
From Loro Piana Seersucker Cotton for him to Liberty London prints for her, the luxe options are simply too tempting. And best of all, 50% of profits are donated to No Kid Hungry and Feeding America.
