Good News & Bad News: Designer Condom Collections, Ralph Lauren Snubs America, More

Some strange news to start:

We’ve seen couturiers design everything from sweaters made of human hair to recyclable shoes. But that’s nothing compared to these designer condoms. Jeremy Scott (along with Alexander Wang, Yigal Azrouël, and others) just unveiled his personal, er… stylish touch on fashionable condoms whose proceeds go to Planned Parenthood. [WWD]

Designers confess: McFlurries, Zapps cajun crawfish flavored chips, solitaire, and “One Life to Live” are among their Fashion Week vices that help them stay calm amid the chaos. [WWD]

Hi-tops (our personal childhood favorite footwear) are back in style again. Big designers like Lanvin, Harvey ­Nichols, Chloé, and Marc by Marc Jacobs are all getting on the band wagon, meaning aside from ballet flats, you’ll have one more stylish option for commuting and to wear on the weekend with your rolled up boyfriend jeans or cropped pants. [Guardian]

And now some bad news:

A Ralph Lauren boycott may ensue after the brand’s Polo logo was seen on the US Olympic athletes instead of the American flag, which is a typical adornment on Lauren tops. [NYP]

McQueen’s death was officially ruled a suicide. See our tribute to the late designer filled with collectable items from one of his last collections. [E!]
