Even if Ed Hardy by Christian Augdigier
isn't your style, chances are you've seen the T-shirts at least, most recently on reality show dad Jon Gosselin
. But here's a new item from Ed Hardy Habit
that got me wondering if the design world has lost it (I know this isn't the first silly "designer" item to come down the pike -- it just grabbed me this week as plain ridiculous): hand sanitizer. That's right, the alcohol-based gel we all carry to use at restaurants or after being on public transportation. The stuff that's pretty cheap. And comes in a plain plastic bottle because it doesn't need to have anything fancier.
Too pedestrian for you, though? Now you can carry around -- or keep at home or at your desk in a pump-style -- and show off to your friends, your designer hand sanitizer. Sure, it's still cheap (only $5 for 2 oz., and $13 for 9.3 oz. w/pump), but it's Ed Hardy Habit, and it comes in a jazzed-up bottle and has a coconut-bergamot scent. Also available: sanitizing pens and foaming hand sanitizer. Made by Habitual Solutions
. And so popular it's on backorder as I write this. Guess I'm the one who needs to get with it.
