While covered up, these creatives share their thoughts on masks in their lives.

“The closest I get to a mask are my aviators. I think everyone has a bit of a veneer they put on before leaving home. It’s less about hiding and more about a finishing touch.”
Diane von Furstenberg:
“I prefer not to wear a mask in my daily life. It can get so complicated.”
“I can never hide behind a mask. It will always be me.”
