Pandemic Essentials: Stepping out in Style with LDC's Independent Designers
By Cordelia Speed, Contributor
To say the very least, 2020 has been a turbulent year so far. Calls for change are being heard from all over the world and in turn, the fashion industry must adapt. Advocating for a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion has always been at the heart of LDC’s mission and that’s why we choose to represent a hand-picked selection of inspiring designers who truly reflect our values. LDC is proud to work alongside the likes of TOKKOU, Yoroshiku 4649, SABINNA and Haoma who have proved their versatility in face of our new reality.
The new world brings a new essential: the facemask. Whilst it may be a necessary addition to our wardrobes, we can still have fun with it! TOKKOU has created two facemasks which are the perfect combination of urban and chic, inspired by the Japanese youth subculture Bōsōzoku. The first mask is of a dark denim which is brought to life with striking, white embroidery and the second adopts the intriguing phrase “One Shot Down”. The lining is constructed from TORAY MACSPEC, which is an antibacterial fabric technology, to ensure that the masks are effective as well as aesthetic.
Whilst you may be blending in with the trend, the splashes of greens, blues and yellows found in Yoroshiku’s camo facemasks make sure you stand out from the crowd. As a brand with sustainability at its core, Yoroshiku uses upcycled camouflage fabric for these masks in order to reduce waste and harm to the planet. The masks are made from three different layers of fabric including the filter inside, which acts as a barrier to help avoid the spread of germs.
It’s time to push your matching couple mugs aside because SABINNA is redefining love in lockdown with her Power Couple Set face masks. As SABINNA is renowned for her striking colour palettes, it won’t come as a surprise that her masks make up a holy trinity of flirty, floral and fun. These vibrant masks also come in packs of five to provide you with a rotation for weekdays! The prints will add a pop of colour and brighten your mood as well as your look.
Make sure to arm yourself with a Haoma Hand Sanitiser, designed to cleanse and protect. This pocket-sized little life-saver is an award-winning antibacterial and antiviral spray made with a blend of certified organic Tea Tree and Sweet Orange essential oils. Whether you’re jumping on the bus or heading to a protest, make sure to stay safe by taking measures to help protect yourself (and look pretty darn good whilst you do it!)
