Ever since the coronavirus began, DIY face coverings have gone viral. People around the world have come up with new, creative ways to upcycle old clothes into masks, and socks have become a popular choice. All you need is a spare sock, which is the perfect use for socks we can’t find the pair to, and a pair of scissors. But, artist Daniel Arsham’s version of a face covering combines fashion with practicality—he created a mask from a pair of Dior’s Oblique socks that feature the designer’s logo.
This isn’t the first time Arsham has worked with Dior, he collaborated with Dior’s menswear designer, Kim Jones, on a soft pink set in the spring/summer 2020 men’s collection. Arsham is best known for his series Future Relics which repurposes nostalgic common objects like cassette tapes, Polaroid cameras, and landline phones by casting them in plaster, volcanic ash, or resin.
For his DIY sock mask, he provides pictures on how to make them. Check out some of the designer’s work below.
