    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Vancouver's best-known luxury lingerie maker, Christine Lingerie, knows its silk after 47 years in the business--and now the line is adapting the material for the height of COVID-19 fashion: masks.

      Available in reversible styles--including Tiffany-blue butterfly-bedecked Botanica, black-and-white Heirloom Lace, and Femme Fatale leopardlike prints--the double-layered, breathable masks will see net proceeds donated to Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

      The style has silk wrapped elastics, a custom wire nose form, and interior pocket for filter insert, retailing for $38; it's not meant for medical use but for day-to-day protection.

      Christine Morton's design house is known for its old-world, silk and lace robes, pyjamas, chemises, camis, and tap pants, worn on films and TV shows from Will & Grace to Gerald's Game and Big Little Lies.
