Last month I read an article about how to combat air pollution and I stumbled upon a pretty cool company called Respro®. Established in 1993, Respro® has been making products for the urban sports environment. One of those products they make are pollution masks. They have a whole range of options and each of them are customized to better suit your environment.
With the rise of pollution in cities, it’s a good choice to wear a pollution mask. However, most pollution masks just don’t fit into your wardrobe and you’ll get odd looks. Respro® combats that image by introducing Skins™, in an effort to make the mask a part of your style. Respro® Skins™ allow you to make the mask more personal by being able to customize the look of the mask. By being able to coordinate the look of the mask to your clothes you can make a stylish outfit and still protect yourself from air pollution. Build your own mask here.
Respro® also recently teamed up with Marcelo Burlon County of Milan to create skins for their collection that is inspired by moto-cross as seen in the slideshow above. This is their first step into the fashion world and these were launched at last month’s Pitti Uomo in Florence, Italy. These masks could easily fit in your techwear wardrobe.
If you’re a commuter and/or live in a highly polluted area then pollution masks are a good way to combat bad air quality. Head over to the Respro® website to learn more about their range of options.
