Louis Vuitton shared the face shields as part of their 2021 Cruise Collection. The fancy mask has a steer price tag and gold studs, it will be out in late October and the price is set to be $961. 

It is not just a mask, the shield will be photochromic and as it was a sci-fi movie when it comes into contact with the sun it transitions from clear to dark. Also, the shield can be turned into a hat when the visor is flipped up. 

Although it looks good, specialists say it’s not a great option to substitute a regular mask with a shield for coronavirus protection. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention doesn’t recommend it, they said: “A face shield is primarily used for eye protection for the person wearing it. At this time, it is not known what level of protection a face shield provides to people nearby from the spray of respiratory droplets from the wearer,” and then added: “There is currently not enough evidence to support the effectiveness of face shields for source control.”


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also explained: “Face shield wearers should wash their hands before and after removing the face shield and avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth when removing it.”
