It’s October 9th and I’m excited to be featuring another block of brand new designer face masks. This week we will be featuring fourteen one-of-a-kind designs featuring authentic fabrics upcycled from Gucci, Burberry, Versace, Yves Saint Laurent, A Bathing Ape, Supreme, Diesel, Psycho Bunny, Stussy, and Kidrobot.
Let’s get started :).
The “I’m *So* Gucci II” face mask is our second mask in this series. It makes a bold statement for any Gucci fan. To create this design we upcycled an authentic Gucci polo shirt that featured a yellow Gucci monogram GG pattern, stripes of the trademark green/red/green pattern, and an embroidered Gucci logo in red. On the right side of this two-panel mask, you’ll find the embroidered logo and a lengthwise stripe separating monogram GG print and black cotton fabric, on the left is the same sans logo. If you need to get extra Gucci, this mask is one-of-a-kind and over the top.
The “Diesel Gets Gucci III” (Diesel x Gucci) face mask is our third design in this series and we couldn’t be happier with the results. We upcycled two authentic garments to create this two-panel fitted mask, a tan Gucci monogram GG polo shirt, and a tan Diesel button-down. From the top-down, you’ll find Gucci fabric followed by Diesel fabric. This design features topstitching. We’ve once again paired together authentic fabric from two Italian designers, Gucci and Diesel. The entire face of this two-panel fitted mask is covered in tan and brown Gucci monogram GG fabric separated on the left-hand side by a thick block of tan Diesel fabric. This design was upcycled from two garments, a Gucci polo shirt, and a Diesel button-down.
(I really like how this design came out, the monogram GG’s in the center lined up very nicely.)
The “Brown and Classic Check Dark Brown II” face mask is the second mask in this series. For this design, we used authentic Burberry fabric from two different button-up shirts. The left side of this two-panel fitted mask is covered in light brown Burberry cotton and on the right side, you’ll find a dark brown classic check with subtle green highlights. This mask features topstitching.
The “Classic Check Brown with Details” face mask is an edgy Burberry inspired design. A single authentic Burberry button-down shirt was used to create this one-panel fitted mask. We started by sewing together the front of the shirt, then we cut out or pattern while including part of the buttoned placket and front pocket. The result is one-of-a-kind.
The “Chrome Lion” face mask was created from a single authentic Versace t-shirt. This luxury shirt featured multiple Versace metal lion head emblems. This one-panel mask is covered in black Versace cotton with a single metal lion head off-center left. This one-of-a-kind mask is subtle while still radiating the feel of the Versace brand.
The “Yves Saint Versace Contrast” (Yves Saint Laurent x Versace) face mask combines fabric from two popular luxury designers, YSL and Versace, and it features an embroidered logo and stripe detail. On the left side of this mask, you’ll find upcycled blue-gray Versace fabric with embroidered logo detail. On the right, you’ll find purple YSL fabric and a thick stripe of blue-gray Versace. Since we believe details matter, we angled the “grain” of the fabric to match the stripe angle.
The “Yves Saint Versace in Purple” (Yves Saint Laurent x Versace) face mask is a contemporary design created from two authentic designer garments. For this one-panel fitted mask, we upcycled an authentic purple Yves Saint Laurent dress shirt and a purple all-over logo print Versace Classic button-down. The entire face of this mask is covered in YSL purple fabric and the left side of this mask features a stripe of Versace. The combination speaks for itself.
The “An Ape Named Laurent” (Yves Saint Laurent x BAPE) face mask is a purple statement piece that combines luxury and streetwear fabrics together seamlessly. This two-panel fitted mask features authentic fabric from Yves Saint Laurent and A Bathing Ape. The left side is continuous purple YSL fabric, and the right side is a block of darker purple A Bathing Ape fabric that features the BAPE STA star logo.
The “Supremely Purple Camo” face mask is another great streetwear piece created from a single authentic Supreme t-shirt. We upcycled a heavyweight cotton long sleeve t-shirt with purple camouflage print into this one-panel fitted face mask. Supreme always comes with the best color combinations in their camouflages and it works well on this one-of-a-kind face mask.
The “Supremely Pink Camo” face mask is a great streetwear piece created from a single authentic Supreme t-shirt. We upcycled a heavyweight cotton t-shirt into this one-panel fitted face mask. The original design featured an all-over pink camouflage pattern which translates nicely onto this mask.
The “Stussy Striped” (Diesel x G-Star x Stussy) face mask is a “triple threat” that seamlessly blends together authentic fabric from three different designers – Diesel, G-Star, and Stussy. This one-panel fitted mask is covered in continuous navy blue Stussy cotton with an off-center left screen printed logo in white. On the left side of this mask, you’ll find a thick stripe of white Diesel fabric followed by a thin stripe of gray G-Star fabric.
The “Labbit and Rabbits” (Psycho Bunny x Kidrobot) face mask is a contemporary design created from two different garments. We used an authentic pair of Psycho Bunny shorts and paired the recovered fabric with fabric from a Kidrobot polo shirt with an embroidered “Smorking Labbit” by Frank Kozik. The left side of this two-panel fitted mask features multiple patriotic Psycho Bunny logos and the right side is red jersey-knit Kidrobot cotton.
The “Kidrobot Overload” face mask is a great face mask for any true Kidrobot fan. This largely gray one-panel face mask features an all-over robot print in blue, navy blue, and white, against a gray background. When one robot isn’t enough, you will definitely need this mask.
The “Heavy D” face mask is a great streetwear design featuring authentic fabric upcycled from a green and orange Diesel t-shirt. Due to the logo placement on the original garment, we had to do a bit of surgery to create this particular face mask design. This one-panel fitted mask features a negative space Diesel “D” logo set at an angle and two angled seams for added detail.
