We didn’t think our crush on Yigal Azrouël could get any bigger. But we just learned he designed condoms — yes, condoms! — and now we’re beside ourselves. Proper Attire condoms teamed with Azrouël because they wanted to make stylish rubbers for women to carry (no one wants any ol’ Trojan spilling out of her Dior bag next week). The Yigal-designed condoms will be available for purchase in his stores starting this Friday with all proceeds benefiting Planned Parenthood (you can also buy them online here). Yigal said in a press release:
“Having grown up with five sisters, causes related to women’s health and wellness are close to my heart. I love being able to apply my passion for design to raise awareness for Planned Parenthood®. My business is largely founded on designing for women, so it is really about taking that mindset and applying it to a product like PROPER ATTIRE® to figure out what appeals to a woman.”
Also, these ought to make excellent Fashion Week gift-bag items since they’re something we can actually use. Unlike, say, the bright-orange eye shadow no one bought in stores.
