Health masks are already standard practice in many Asian countries and have been an integral staple to youth culture & street style fashion in Japan & Korea for many years. Face masks & coverings grew in popularity during the 2002-2004 SARS outbreak and with the rise in popularity of J-Pop & K-Pop, they made the transition from utility to fashion.
Look out for Korea's most celebrated Punk, Alternative Street Style Star & founder of cult label 99%is Bajo Woo. Also featured in the gallery are Japanese style idol Kozue Akimoto & American Stylist & Street Wear troubadour Aleali May both wearing Marine Serre.
Europe has of course seen a rise in the use of face masks since the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, with June 15 marking the day that their use will be compulsory on all public transport such as the London Underground. As England also prepares for the re-opening of "non-essential" shops such as fashion and retail, masks and facial coverings are set to be part of the "new normal."

Note: Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland fall under their own devolved governmental health laws so as yet the wearing of masks is not UK wide.
