French fashion house Louis Vuitton is launching an upmarket face shield to be sold for an unconfirmed price of US$961 (S$1,300).
The exact retail price has not been confirmed by all media reports so far, but the LV shield personal protective equipment is part of its 2021 Cruise Collection.
It is difficult to explain decadence or the economics of luxury goods, and their pricing, but here goes.
The face shield has gold studs engraved with the LV logo.
The elastic monogrammed strap goes around the heads of users.
The face shield can be flipped up so it transforms into a visor.
The magic is that the clear covering automatically transitions to a dark tint in sunlight and supposedly keeps out harmful UV rays protection.
But if others can see your face, it means the Covid-19 virus can get into your orifices.
