Drugs That Won’t Send You to Rehab

Living in a time where TMZ and Perez gives us weekly updates of celebrity substance abuse and relapses, illegal drugs have made their way into popular culture. Being associated with celebrity lifestyle and glamor has removed some of the dirty connotation to them, which in turn has been a platform for designers and brands to absorb drug culture into their clothing and make substance abuse wearable, with an excellent sense of dark humor.

Jeremy Scott x Longchamp

Pill Le Pliage Bag, $322

Collaborating with French bag brand, Longchamp, American designer Jeremy Scott used the pill print from his spring/summer 2011 collection and had it printed on Longchamp’s oversized travel bag. The result is a literal pill bag that may set airport security on edge when you place it on the belt to be x-rayed. Once you manage to get through security checkpoints and land in London, the cheeky humor of the bag will score many glances from shoppers on Old Bond Street and maybe even a smirk or two.
