Uniqlo’s Airism face mask gets a launch date in Malaysia

The Uniqlo face masks have been on everyone’s lips ever since its launch in Japan, and now, the highly anticipated piece is finally arriving on Malaysian shores. The date? September 14.

As expected from the brand, the mask features a simple yet effective design that optimises health and protection without compromising on comfort. Every piece comes in a three-layer structure—an Airism mesh fabric that’s smooth and breathable, a nano-filter that blocks 99 per cent of bacteria and pollen particles, and a UV-cut layer that has a UPF 50 rating. The best part of it all? It’s machine washable, and it’s proven to retain its high-protection filtering even after 20 washes.

The Uniqlo Airism face mask will be available in-store and online on September 14, and it’s priced at RM39.90 for a pack of three.

The white surroundings are complemented with pops of cream, beige, and rose that add a feminine vibe, and the brass metal fixtures pull it together on a sophisticated note.

In a statement by the brand, the designer says: “Over the years of working with Hu Ge, I’ve witnessed his growth and constant focus and passion for his career. I’m glad that our collaboration has stepped into a new phase. The masculinity he exudes perfectly personifies the essence of Giorgio Armani.” And we could not agree more.
