“Couture bridal designer, Chantal Mallett is clearly seeking to keep a smile on our faces...”

We think it was Tyra Banks who coined the phrase ‘but make it fashion’ and it comes to mind as we turn to accessories this month. This issue we’re showcasing a few of the many varieties of face masks or coverings which have launched over the past couple of months.

Style Cheat’s campaign #LetsMaskTogether uses the brand’s fabric offcuts and for each mask sold, a medical-grade mask is donated to a frontline worker. £9.99, stylecheat.com

Couture bridal designer, Chantal Mallett is clearly seeking to keep a smile on our faces with her witty, pretty masks and she is donating 10% of profits to coronavirus charities. The top layer is created from tightly woven cotton ticking, and the inner from soft cotton jersey. Masks come with one free filter, a pattern for you to make more filters of your own, plus a storage bag. £19.99, maskhaveaccessory.uk

Sustainable ‘craftist’, Ana Carvalho started creating masks as a way of remaining creative during lockdown. Her colourful masks use pure cotton, feature a filter pocket and are designed to be reusable. £8, etsy.com/uk/shop/AmorAmorCrafts

Liberty’s beautiful and iconic prints have been used by Brora to create a selection of face covers. They’re beautifully made, but admittedly on the steeper side. However, for each mask sold, Brora are giving £10 to NHS Charities Together, and at time of writing has raised £100k for the organisation. £19, brora.co.uk

So Just Shop’s eye-catching masks are handmade from upcycled fabric. They include a pocket for a disposable filter and are available in a variety of colours. This website works closely with small artisan groups in marginalised communities. All profits from these sales will go directly back to pay a living wage to the women making these masks, and will also support local social and healthcare initiatives. £14.99, sojustshop.com

Independent design brand TemAD Collection uses their trademark selection of Ankara prints to create a design-led mask which carries on the bright, bold aesthetic of the label. Masks are available singly, or in packs of three or five. From £5.99, temadcollections.com

Migrate Art fundraises to support The Refugee Community Kitchen. They have undertaken a collaboration with ten major contemporary artists and illustrators to create some art for our faces. Each costs £19.99 which in turn provides 30 hot meals for displaced and homeless people across the UK. Five designs were launched at the start of June, with new designs being released each week until mid-July. migrateart.com

Lab-Grown Diamonds

The perfect modern heirloom?

The buzz surrounding lab-grown diamonds is growing – these man-made alternatives to traditional diamonds are soaring in popularity and we’ve got questions: what are they made of, what’s the difference between a lab-grown diamond and cubic zirconia and do they count as ‘real’ diamonds?
