Make It Match: This Couture Mask Brand Has Intricate Designs for Every Occasion

By

From head to toe, you deserve to look your best, and putting on couture masks that are intricately designed can elevate your next event outfit

We’re in the middle of 2022, and as more things change with the influx of outdoor gatherings and live events, we have accepted that a lot of things should remain the same, like wearing our masks. But instead of sticking to the norm, why not give your look a much-needed refresh? ÀMEN, a Filipina-led fashion brand that produces one-of-a-kind statement pieces, gives women more reasons to stride in style with couture masks.

If you don’t have a couture mask in your wardrobe yet, you’re missing out. Ever since ÀMEN launched their S/S ‘21 Couture Mask Fashion Show and created buzz worldwide, the brand has amassed a collection of designs ranging from neutral tones that are easy to coordinate, to more vibrant combinations that become a sure head-turner. Even through material choice and composition, each mask looks and feels special.

Couture from start to finish

The term “couture” may come in different meanings, but for ÀMEN, it means that their products are hand-made from start to finish. The process begins with fabric selection, such as soft meshes folded for texture and depth, or even stiffer textiles for layering. Threads for embroidery and embellishments like beads for choice designs are also carefully selected.

Each pattern is hand-cut to precision and sewn together piece by piece. Quad-stacked silk linings ensure protection and comfort when you wear it, and an internal wire helps contour it around your nose bridge and face. Finally, premium nude adjustable straps give you a perfect fit—no extra trinkets needed. The mask is then tucked inside a hand-made silk pouch that can serve as its carrying case, along with a pack of PPE-grade PureMASQ filtrations.

ÀMEN believes that good things take time, which is why masks are produced in small batches, with some collections even being limited to just a hundred pieces. Each mask also passes the 4 Crucial Safety Test as per The MASQ Collection standard.

A perfect match for all occasions

With so many designs to choose from, with each model set in a story-driven naming scheme unique to the brand, ÀMEN has a couture piece for casual days out and even for your big milestones in life. On June 3, 2022, the brand echoed their support for love and faith through the “Forever and a Heirloom: The Diamond of Your Lifetime” bridal collection.

For those looking to tie the knot, you can have your bridesmaid and maid of honor coordinate their dresses with their masks for a more cohesive look. Set in traditional palettes of white and cream, with glistening accents that shine like silver and gold, this limited collection of masks is elegance at its finest. Each piece also comes in their cream Luc Lucienne Tasseled Dust Bag.

Masks from the bridal collection can also be worn to elevate an outfit for a candlelit dinner with a loved one, or even a ballroom gala event. No matter when, an ÀMEN mask can be an accessory or a keepsake for those memorable moments.

By encouraging a lifestyle through new experiences gained with their masks, ÀMEN wants you to be filled with love, life, and power, and to overflow these values to the world around you. The hard-at-work team embodies this mission as they continue to expand internationally, as well as keep their mission of allocating 10% of every sale to their beneficiaries to support education and daily sustenance.

Discover and grab their pieces exclusively on their website. Keep your eyes on ÀMEN as they take a big step towards the future with statement pieces coming later this year.
