Marine Serre Fall 2020

In the middle of rising concerns about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak , French designer, Marine Serre  who won the 2017 LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers  showcased  a collection featuring designer face masks. Models rocked the catwalk in a variety of face masks, including gingham print and knit pieces over the models’ faces and heads fully covered.

Serre’s collection was designed before the outbreak, and she has used facemasks in her collections before.

Her previous show in September also saw models cover their faces with veils or facemasks as part of the designer’s spring/summer collection.

Dutch influencer Romy D’Fonseca posted a photo on Instagram     rocking similar designs , saying that the collaboration is dropping on Airnum next week.


“Serre’s energy has dynamised the fashion industry,” Vogue said last year. “Her hybrid garments, each a radical cocktail of century-flitting references, utilitarian practicalities, plus a sporting streak, are never so complicated as to miss the contemporary mark.”

At her showcase this week, Serre also showed a range of outfits which went further than facemasks in obscuring models’ faces.
