Fashion Forward: Everyday PPE for the New Normal
Once used to go around incognito or as a shield against dust, face masks quickly became an essential part of one’s everyday ensemble. They offer a layer of protection against the spread of the virus and are now required for wear when going outside. Though it’s clear that face masks were born out of necessity, style savants have found ways to infuse a fun sense of fashion in their function. Here’s where you can get yourself a set of face masks—and other personal protective gear—to keep your outfit on point in the new normal.
The Rajo Store
Rajo Laurel’s ready-to-wear arm offers a selection of silhouettes for their protective overcoats, each one with a mask to match. There are four color options to choose from—black, white, red, and blue. Statements masks are also available for purchase, and can conveniently be tied around one’s head for a snug and secure fit.
Well-known for an aesthetic that exudes romance and femininity, Vania Romoff applies her design style to a collection of masks and outerwear sets. Coats are made with a lightweight fabric that cinches at the waist, and comes with a pair of pants to match. Masks on the other hand are made from either silk or jacquard, with folds that allow them to adjust to one’s face.
For over two decades, Fino’s fine craftsmanship has created quality leather bags that stand the test of time. As an answer to the call of the times, the brand now offers leather masks made of French calfskin and lined with sheepskin. A sports foam filter pad allows a comfortable wear, and detachable straps lets one mix and match colors.
Mosaic’s philosophy is simple—great design is creating the right clothes to suit not just one’s body but one’s lifestyle as well. With this in mind, the brand has created protective poncho and mask sets in matching colors, to offer a simple way to spruce up one’s everyday wear.
With a variety of standout designs, Rhett Eala once again exhibits his design prowess through his handmade mask sets.

Tryst Studio’s curated selection of chic fashion pieces now include protective gear. Here one will find Donna Lim’s metallic-hued PPE sets in breathable fabrics and with anti-viral properties. Una Ricci’s dainty cloth masks are up for sale as well, each one infused with N9 Pure Silver to expel germs and viruses.
One of the longest running multi-brand stores in the country continues to champion labels by young designers by offering their reusable face masks for sale. Here one can find a variety of colored masks in breathable fabrics and water-repellent features.
Frankie & Friends
A community of small business owners make up Frankie & Friends, allowing them to support local communities in far-flung areas through their homegrown crafts. Ethically-made masks can be found here in a range of designs, some sewn with snug, breathable fabrics and others showcasing native weaves.
Face masks are necessary to wear whenever one steps out of the house, but this responsibility need not be unexciting. These face masks (and their complementary coats) inject a welcome zest into an otherwise plain accessory, and allow one to showcase their personality while being safe and responsible. All these go to show that merging form and function can be fun and fashionable, too.
