Remember ‘back in the day’ when 10 year old Vogue model, Thylane Blondeau was the talk of the town or the time when we freaked reading about 8 year old beauty-pageant contester Britney Campbell and her wacky mom injecting her with Botox? Peanuts people, PeaNuts!
Let’s take it a step further, far and beyond an innocent and sane persons mind. Crossing a line, creating and aiming for a market that basically shouldn’t even exist in the first place…
Jours Après Lunes launches lingerie for girls age 4 – 12 and a ‘loungerie’ line for babies 3 months up to 36 months!
From the ‘creative’ brain of stylist, Sophie Morin a ‘disturbing’ line has been born. Sophie who’s been working in the lingerie industry for 15 years has created her own lingerie line, the first ever just for babies and kids. Sorry I should say “loungerie”, since that’s the term Sophie uses. It’s lingerie/loungewear! Proudly presenting the new line as the first designer brand designing “loungerie” for infants and girls so they can look like their mom, while using the words such as ” silky smooth and second skin” and even “respectful” in her introduction on her website.
Age-inappropriate ‘styled’ innocent girls.
Silk triangle bra and undies with rhinestones
Seriously which stylist would make these young innocent girls look like there ready to, well let’s keep it appropiate…with pearl necklaces and Amy Winehouse do’s.
Or should I ask who are these parents letting their precious kids pose like this?? And yes, I chose not to use some of the other look book pics…
Why do the young ones look like they should be over 16 and the ‘older’ ones look like they’re between 4 and 8 holding a teddy-bear?
Waiting and holding a feather for?
*Bare in mind, I love fashion, new creative ideas and even though some might not be entirely my cup of tea, I have always respected designers and his or her work. This ‘line’ however and its presentation literally made my skin crawl.
So I guess the question is: What’s your opinion? Do you think this is ok? Or has this designer stepped over a huge line? Should this be banned? Should she be sued and what about the parents?
