Pre 2020, PPE was a term reserved for scientists, health workers, and anyone venturing onto a construction site. Nobody could have seen it coming, but PPE gear is now firmly woven into the fabric of everyday life and it's being produced by the likes of Marine Serre and Off-White™.

From face masks to full-face coverings via gloves and hand sanitizer, we’re now accustomed to a range of protective products. And if this stuff’s sticking around then we may as well make the most of it. It turns out there is such thing as cool PPE gear and we’re stocking up.

While our PPE experience began with the arrival of face masks, the world has branched out into a bunch of other departments of personal protective equipment. New runway collections from luxury houses and streetwear labels have even moved to incorporate PPE gear — see Louis Vuitton visors. As such, who's to say that PPE's reach won't continue to grow? We see a future embellished with innovative, stylish PPE, so why not get started on a collection.

Our selection below covers the whole range, from basic face masks to style-centric, luxury iterations. Please remember, though, luxury PPE doesn't always mean full safety — pair our selections with medically proven PPE to guarantee protection.
