Jessica Dweck applauds Adriana Bertini’s condom-wear:

Bertini’s collection aims not to foment a revolution in ready-to-wear fashion but to destigmatize condoms and promote the message that these life-saving devices should be as basic and necessary as a simple pair of jeans. And if all this creative do-goodery wasn’t enough, she’s also protecting the environment by reusing pounds of [factory-rejected condoms, a] synthetic material that would otherwise end up in landfills or in the air as greenhouse gas.
