Her racy underwear range for tiny tots has stirred up a storm. But Sophie Morin insists she’s been misunderstood!
The designer insists there’s nothing wrong with a photoshoot featuring four-year-old models wearing panties and bras. Is she right? You decide!
The range for 4-12 year olds, by label Jours Après Lunes, has been accused of “sexualizing children”.
Fashionista.com accused the company of creating “lingerie for people who probably shouldn’t be old enough to even know what lingerie is.”
The article prompted designer Sophie Morin to write back to the website, defending her creations.
“All I wanted to do was offer underwear that is soft and pleasant to wear… that is suited [to] their age, and that wasn’t an extension of women’s labels, which are often vulgar,” she argues.
“The materials…have no vulgar connotation: they are totally opaque, nothing transparent. The style is inspired by children’s fashion, with spots, bows, etc.”
She also defends the way the kids are made-up and posed: “The children aren’t wearing high heels nor nail polish nor lipstick. The hairdos are over the top, but so are children’s games. Yes, the models wear sunglasses, like every single kid. Yes, you see their stomachs and legs, like you do on the beach. Yes they wear necklaces inside the house, as do all little girls for fun.”
We disagree. These photos AND the idea of small children wearing ‘adult’ underwear is WRONG.
Do you agree, HollyMoms?
