Melamine plates that look like vintage china? It's true! We're convinced that we need everything in John Derian's new melamine collection, and if you're into alfresco dining (yup, picnics included), you're going to need them, too. Launching in June, his melamine collection offers a lightweight, virtually unbreakable alternative to using paper plates or schlepping nice dishes outdoors. The melamine collection includes a side plate, salad plate, dinner plate, and charger, and ranges from $9 to $17. Oh, and did we mention that they're also dishwasher safe? Enough said.
