InÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â our search for the most relevant, interesting, funny, post-worthy items to put on POPgoesTheWeek,Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â we see a lot of stuff. Sometimes we come across something we wish we hadn’t seen – and then comes the tough decision: do we expose you to a bit of pop culture you might wish you hadn’t known about?
The answer is almost alwaysÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â unequivocallyÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â YES. And with that, I apologize.
Sex and the CityÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â fashionista and designer Patricia Field is teaming up with Kotex to put a splash of color on the Maxi Pad. (Listen, I didn’t make this up. It’s happening. If you’re one of those ‘what happens in the bathroom stays in the bathroom types, I apologize. It’s not my idea!)
You can go online and use patterns, brushes, even upload your own image (gross) to enter a contest to winÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â the opportunity of a lifetime: working with Field herself to design new maxi pads.
The project is called BandtheBland. Men or women over 14 can enter.
Thanks for reading! I feel uncomfortable too. But from a pr standpoint, we’re talking about Kotex. I just said it: Kotex. Someone just got a bonus.
