Patricia Field Wants You To Design Maxi Pads For Kotex

In what must be the most unnecessary collaboration we have ever heard of, Patricia Field has teamed up with Kotex for a maxi pad design contest. We just…we can’t.

Field, of course, is known for her wacky and colorful designs, and she wants to bring that sensibility to feminine hygiene: “I don’t know a thing about white. I see a world that’s very colorful and textured with, like, ice flying through it.” Aspiring maxi pad designers can submit their designs on the Kotex “Ban the Bland” site, where you can also submit designs for tin tampon carriers. Three winners will work with Field on the final designs, which will be on shelves beginning in July.

Okay, let’s have some lady real talk: colorful, textured, icy maxi pads are weird! Who wants anything but white ones?? White is clean. And sanitary. White sanitary pads. See, it makes sense! That said, the design tool is actually kind of fun, if not totally bizarre.

No “we bleed Styleite pink” jokes, please:

And here’s Field chatting about the contest:
