Louis Vuitton’s N374, 000 face shield is like a sun cap. The French fashion house Louis Vuitton recently announced it will release a coronavirus face shield that features its signature LV monogram, which can also be flipped up and used as a sun visor.
The LV Shield which will be available to purchase from 30 October 2020 in selected Louis Vuitton stores worldwide is estimated cost to be around N347, 000 (£700).
The LV Shield comprises a visor made from a plastic-like material with fabric trim and an elasticated strap designed to fit snugly around the wearer’s head.
Golden studs engraved with the company name enable the wearer to tilt the visor upwards, turning it from a face shield into a peaked cap.
As the visor is made from a photochromatic material, which is sensitive to light, it darkens in response to direct sunlight, changing from clear to tinted to protect the wearer from mild sun glare.
Both the trim and the head strap are printed with the company’s signature LV monogram in its classic brown and gold colourway.
“The LV Shield makes for an eye-catching headpiece, both stylish and protective,” said the LV.
“[It] seamlessly transitions from dawn to dusk, adding a discreet yet sophisticated touch to one’s personal protection.”
