Adriana Bertini Condom Dresses: Love It or Hate It?

Last week we saw a clever little Anya Hindmarch bag that is preaching to the eco crowd - which most of you loved. Here we have another fashion and politics collaboration found by misspoli. These Adriana Bertini Condom Dresses can be admired in the Brazilian Sugar's group. These colorful and extremely textured dresses were created to help fight AIDS. According to misspoli, "Adriana´s target is to rock people about the importance of condom(s) to protect themselves from sexual transmissive illness." While these are not exactly wearable you have to love the idea and initiative. The artist uses preservatives from factories to create fashion; she is a true recycled fashion pioneer. These dresses have been viewed in art exhibits around the world and to read more about them visit Adriana Bertini's website. So...what do you all think? Love or hate?

I love them. They definitely make a bold statement, and it's pretty clever on her part.

I may need one of those. With three boys in Catholic school they're gonna have to learn about condoms somewhere!!! Seriously, they're for a great cause so I love them.

It's interesting to know that someone DOES play with condoms all day long but NO WAY!

To quote Clueless, "What a monet. It's like a painting, see? From far away, it's OK, but up close, it's a big old mess."

Love them! I adore the texture and colour. Though the two on the left would be hard to pull-off, I quite like the two on the right and could definitely wear either of them to an event.

the multi-colored one looks like it's made from popped birthday balloons instead of condoms! :rotfl: I'm still surprised they make condoms in such a wide variety of festive colors!! :rotfl: :rotfl: the idea is great. It's creative and effective in delivering the message... Just not wearable ------- :star: :star: :star:

AIDS awareness?? And they just wasted how many condoms they could have passed out for free??? Creative, but just a bit off.

These dresses are such a nice piece of artwork! It is such a neat idea to get innovative and make a statement at the same time.

Looks like summer dresses. The 4th looks good, but seems to be a beehive after a closer look (*shivers*)

Come on people of course they are not made to wear out on the street. I think these dresses are hilarious and spread a great message. Im not going to get into the whole message about how abstinence only being taught in schools doesnt work (ok maybe a little) so why not show a message about safe sex in a creative way

Very Artistic, however the black and white one really looks like condoms. The colorful ones fooled me as I looked at them. The designs look like fabric... till you get to the last dress.

usedI feel robbed! I totally made a (unused) condom skirt a year ago for halloween; I was trojan WOman! :D I handed out condoms too. There also happened to be a dude dressed as Trojan man at the party; it was pretty hysterical.
