How will masks fit into the fashion industry as they become such an important part of our wardrobes? For the foreseeable future, we will all be advised to wear masks in situations where social distancing isn’t possible. And with that, it’s created a new subset for many Americans: the fashion mask. At the link in our bio, five Vogue editors explore how it feels to see something so associated with the loss and tragedy of the pandemic become part of a look.

Vogue asked Belgium-born relationship therapist, bestselling author, and podcast host @EstherPerelofficial , who’s working remotely—and “more than ever”—and asked her #73Questions .

Tap the link in our bio to see how she addresses these questions and many more.

The death in Minneapolis this week of #GeorgeFloyd , an unarmed 46-year-old black man killed by a white police officer—who pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd yelled that he couldn’t breathe—has sparked outrage around the country and protests, as well widespread looting, in Minneapolis. While the death of Floyd is indeed horrible, it is also far from unique. This latest tragedy came three months after Ahmaud Arbery was shot and killed by two white men (one a former police officer ) while on a jog in his southeastern Georgia neighborhood, as well as two months after the death of Breonna Taylor, shot at least eight times by police officers who had attempted to enter her Louisville apartment without announcing themselves. It has also surfaced a familiar image, one that has now been given a powerful new meaning: @Kaepernick7 kneeling to protest racism and police brutality in America. Now, looking at the image of Floyd’s neck being crushed by a white police officer’s knee next to Kaepernick’s knee on the football field, the athlete’s show of activism feels disturbingly poignant and incredibly important. It should have always been important, but now those who were confused or put off before have a visual representation of exactly what his intent was and still is today. It is also a reminder that there is a long way to go for equal justice in this country and why we must all keep fighting. Tap the link in our bio for more details.

Unlike other video games where only specific customizations can be made, #AnimalCrossing allows users to essentially design a garment from scratch, creating the exact hem length, flounce, or pattern on the outfit their avatar wears. Unsurprisingly, the game has quickly been adopted by the fashion community. Now, @referencefestival , a Berlin-based fashion organization, is taking Animal Crossing’s fashion potential one step further with a virtual fashion show of Animal Crossing avatars dressed up in current season looks inspired by @Loewe , @Prada , and @gmbh_official . The show was conceived by photographer @kara__chung , who runs the Instagram account @animalcrossingfashionarchive , and stylist @marcgoehring of 032C. Tap the link in our bio for more details.
After face masks were made mandatory in New York, Laylah Amatullah Barrayn ( @laylahb ), a photographer from Brownsville who now lives in Crown Heights, quickly saw the standard-issue surgical mask give way to a more creative idea of face-covering in her Brooklyn neighborhood. “Even though their faces are obscured, people are still presenting their identity,” says Barrayn. “They are representing their cultural, ethnic, and national background through their masks.” Tap the link in our bio to see more.
