Trojan might want to take note: designer collaborations are moving into some unexpected territory. Vena Cava’s Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock applied their downtown style to Proper Attire condoms—covering the packages with all manner of cheeky euphemisms (including an impressive number of colloquial terms for condom) in their signature hand-scrawled text. “We thought that the print would act as a good conversation starter at Planned Parenthood health centers in helping to promote safer sex,” says Buhai.
The designs debuted today at Vena Cava’s F/W show, as they join a long line of designers like Charlotte Ronson, Alexander Wang, and Jeremy Scott, who have all collaborated with Proper Attire. A three-pack sells for $5.99, and all proceeds benefit Planned Parenthood. For retail locations or to buy online: properattirecondoms.com
