The Munich-based designer produced the first batch of lightweight cotton masks with 50-centimetre-long metal or nylon chains that allow them to be worn like a necklace for her store in April, before publicising the products on her website and Instagram account in May. 

Diez believes she was the first to launch chained masks in April this year, but sees the addition of chains to face masks as a natural progression from the chains used to hold reading glasses.

"It feels more like wearing an accessory than something you're being forced to wear."
