Face coverings before COVID-19 Metropolis Jacket C.P. Company 1997 The Metropolis jacket, which was first released in 1997, has a removable anti-smog mask that is adjustable through hood openings and is insulated with a high-density double fleece lining. Between 1997 and 2001, different versions of the jacket were released on a seasonal basis. The jacket was reissued by C.P. Company for AW2020. Nylon, polyester Archive no. 2016.181 Undercover: from Necessity to Luxury. The Evolution of Face Coverings During COVID-19 OPENS 11 MAY 2021 The simple cloth mask, a seemingly non-gendered and unsophisticated object, has rapidly become a symbolic and highly contested artefact since its adoption in response to COVID-19. From the fashion industry's initial response producing free masks for healthcare workers to the emergence of designer iterations from companies including Burberry, JW Anderson, and Turnbull & Asser, the face coverings created in response to COVID-19 have both surprising and revealing. Since April 2020, the Westminster Menswear Archive has been actively collecting masks and face coverings produced in response to COVID-19. In less than 12 months, they have progressed from a functional PPE object in short supply to a distinct new fashion product made and marketed by all levels of the fashion industry. Presented in chronological order, the 52 face coverings in this exhibition represent a cross-section of the millions of face coverings that have been designed, produced, and worn over the last year. #undercover #face #masks #facemasks #facemask #faces #dressyourface #menswearstyle #menswears #menswearfashion #menswearclothing #menswearblog #vintagemenswear #fashionmenswear #fashion #exhibition #fashionblogger #fashionista #instafashion #fashionstyle #fashiongram #mensfashion #fashionblog #fashionaddict #fashionpost #cpcompany #fashiondesigner #fashiondesign #urbanprotection
