Shoshanna Launches Mommy and Me Masks

Shoshanna, the women’s ready-to-wear, eveningwear and swimwear firm, has introduced Mommy and Me masks.
The mini masks are available starting today on its web site, as well as new color ways for adults. A complimentary mask will be included with every clothing or swim order while the supply lasts.
The company said it realized how difficult it is to convince children to wear a mask and thought matching adult and children masks might make it a little easier.
The mini masks are produced from excess gingham fabric and are reusable. They have the same features as the adult masks and are available in mint and navy.
The children’s face masks are $18, while the adult face masks are $20.
In addition, Shoshanna has donated masks to Mt. Sinai Hospital through Mask Match, which helps people with spare masks send them directly to health-care workers on the front lines.

Lacoste Reopens Stores Implementing New Guidelines

Lacoste has begun reopening its U.S. boutiques and outlet location by implementing a slew of new operational guidelines. Eight locations throughout Texas were the first to reopen May 8, followed by additional stores in Florida, North Carolina and Ohio on May 15. Others will reopen as local mandates allow.
Each store will follow a cleaning and disinfecting process prior to opening and also mid-day. A third-party professional cleaning service will be hired, and there will be checking and cleaning HVAC systems and disinfecting dressing rooms and payment terminals before and after each customer. All locations will be equipped with protective masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, thermometers, soap and paper towels.
Lacoste is first to market offering real-time data around the multiple health and safety initiatives with tech company YOOBIC. Customers will be able to scan QR codes within the retail stores that will give them live updates on how many times and when the retail store was last professionally cleaned and sanitized, as well as the store’s current capacity so it does not exceed its threshold. It will also provide customers’ information on masks and sanitizer that will be available in-store and complimentary to them, what steps the store is taking to maintain
