With the government possibly announcing the end of working from home and hybrid working options being discussed, the British fashion designer Giles Deacon has created a capsule collection for those whose workspace is now undefined.

Using data collected by the workspace company IWG on what people want to wear during their return to work, Deacon set about creating the wonky WFA (work from anywhere) outfits.

The Hydrafacial has been called an MOT for your skin, the ultimate glow-giving facial, and like a deep peel and microdermabrasion in oneminus the downtime. Confirmed celebrity fans include supermodels, business moguls, and Spice Girls (Suki Waterhouse, Karren Brady, and Emma Bunton, no less).

LED masks look vaguely like something Iron Man would wear from the outside, and shine multicolored lights onto the skin that claim to clear acne, prevent wrinkles and repair sun damage. Kourtney Kardashian uses one (or at least sells a device on her website), so if it’s good enough for a Kardashian, why not for the rest of us?
