French 'Kiddie' Lingerie Designer Rails at Critics (Photos)

JoursApresLunes front French Kiddie Lingerie Designer Rails at Critics (Photos)Sophie Morin the French designer who ignited a global uproar over her pre-teen lingerie line, has offered her own take on the controversy: Quelle mouche t’a piqué?

Morin created the line for Jours Après Lunes, which is marketing panties, bras, camisoles and T-shirts from the range with photos of children in what critics say are provocative poses.

Morin wrote to Web site Fashionista that she is “extremely surprised by the current uproar” over the lingerie.

“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 wrote.

“The materials… have no vulgar connotation; they are totally opaque, nothing transparent. The style is inspired by children’s fashion, with spots, bows, etc.”

Check out the line; click photos to enlarge.

But girls are photographed wearing heavy make-up and jewelry.

In one shot, a girl wears Jackie O-style sunglasses while lounging back on a pillow, wearing panties and a cropped polka-dot tied top.

“What’s disturbing about Jours Après Lunes is… that it’s lingerie for people who probably shouldn’t be old enough to even know what lingerie is,” Fashionista wrote in a blog critical of the line.

“It’s inappropriate to sexualize children. A pearl-encrusted triangle bra on a little girl does not sit well with me,” Marilisa Racco, author of Le Snob Lingeries told the New York Daily News.

“It’s entirely inappropriate to put a 4-year-old in a bouffant like she’s Brigitte Bardot,” she said referring to the ’60s era sex siren.

“All the photos show children playing children’s games, as we’ve all done,” Morin counter.

“If you look at the details, you’ll often find elements of children’s games: dolls accessories, wooden animals etc,’

“There is only one interpretation: children playing together, no more,” she added.

Morin also noted that cultural differences may be playing a role in the uproar.

France is much more accepting of sexuality than other Western countries like Britain and the United States.

“I’d also like to remind you that in France, the term ‘lingerie’ refers to the entire field of underwear, including men, women and children. This term alone doesn’t have a sexy connotation,” Morin wrote

A separate, but related controversy flared earlier this week over a photo spread featuring 10-year-old model Thylane Blondeau in Paris Vogue, France’s leading fashion magazine.

Fashion Designer Tom Ford edited the January edition in which Blondeau appears in vampish make up and sexy poses.
