Today's April Fools and so, logically, begins The Penis Festival, a traditional celebration of fertility in Japan where people pay tribute to all things phallic. Tonight, Chef Tadashi Ono at NYC's Matsuri restaurant is offering a one-night-only Penis Matsuri dinner after which guests will be given a complimentary Jeremy Scott for Proper Attire condoms.
You may be wondering what all this has to do with fashion. Plenty, according to Lady Gaga. "It's not complicated, just a fashion statement," said the pop star recently about her collaboration with the designer (pictured above). "Everybody wrap it up with Jeremy Scott for Proper Attire condoms," she added. The condoms come ribbed, sheer and dotted.
Scott is not the first designer to revamp little rain coats. In 2008, Marc Jacobs unveiled a line of MJ blue condoms with a little note that read "Remember, safety first! XXOO, Marc Jacobs."
