I've already written about Leather bandages, Swarovski crystal studded bandages and as you may or may not know even good ol' Johnson & Johnson came out with designer Band-aids by Cynthia Rowley last year and in 2008, by Brazilian fashion designer Alexandre Herchovitch.
But these will have your friends drooling over your superficial wounds with envy. With the tagline "Heal in Style" these FDA approved adhesive bandages, cleverly named Brandages, play off famous and recognizable status symbols from such fashion brands as Burberry, Gucci, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. The patterns and logos are modified ever so slightly - undoubtedly to avoid a lawsuit.
They are so fashionable, I may just have to give myself a papercut.

In addition to the status brand inspired versions, they will be coming out with solid colored bandages and these dog-inspired bandages as well:

Right now there's only one place you can purchase Brandages and that's at the hip online Japanese lifestyle store Sugoi Life.
