Timely Indoor Fashion | PS – MASK 19

Visionary design for timely optical onesie, by Rene Gruau.

I love the work of René Gruau, the late French fashion illustrator.

Studying his work is pure escapism.


PS | It reminds me of the disturbing news of less victims of domestic violence now calling in for help. The help lines are suddenly less busy. They worry the  callers – mostly female – are now held prisoner at home by their warder.

Collateral damage of the Corona pandemic and the decree to stay indoors.

In several European countries victims of domestic violence can now call out for help by using a codeword at the pharmacy. Pharmacies are suitable outposts because of their private nature. The codeword is MASK 19.

When asked for a Mask 19 the employee knows what to do and will ask for an address to send it to. The police will take it from there.
