I always appreciated the fact that Céline Dion was a somewhat wholesome figure in a music business that is heavily bent on depravity. However, since the death of her husband and manager René Angélil, she’s been involved in some increasing weirdness.
Since wrapping up her Las Vegas residency, Céline apparently found a new mission: To “free” newborns from gender binarity. Because that was the main complaint of newborns. To do so, she released CELINUNUNU, a “gender-neutral” clothing line for babies, created in conjunction with the global fashion brand NUNUNU.
Some might consider this piece of news to be yawn-worthy as CELINUNUNU is yet another over-priced fashion brand using a celebrity endorsement to generate sales. However, there is more to it. NUNUNU is already a huge brand in Hollywood. The brand’s website contains an extensive picture gallery of celebrities’ children wearing their creations such as Angelina Jolie, Kourtney Kardashian, Hilary Duff and many more. By their own admission, the brand is about more than fashion. It is a way to “shape children” for the future.
First, let’s look at the promo video featuring Céline Dion.
The CELINUNUNU features Céline Dion sneaking into a maternity ward and altering the look of other people’s children. While most news sources found the video “hilarious”, many were also disturbed by the video’s strange messages.
Celine then sneaks inside the hospital’s maternity ward and discovers something unacceptable.
Then, Céline spreads around some black powder and everything changes. For the worst.
Then, security arrests Céline and takes her out of the hospital. Good. Let’s make sure this doesn’t happen again.
To sum up the video, it’s not good. Of course, Céline Dion is merely the face of the brand. The entire line was created by NUNUNU, an Israeli fashion for children that is already a global hit.
Something is Wrong With NUNUNU
When I say that something is wrong with NUNUNU, I am not talking about its ridiculous name. I’m talking about its entire philosophy and symbolism. The brand’s “About” page says:
led completely by their intuition, co-owners and designers iris adler and tali milchberg created children’s clothing collections that broke stereotypes and dodged accepted norms. their need for a basic dna and a unisex offering in kids fashion, created a global trend that is now an inspiration worldwide. driven by an agenda that defies the traditional dichotomy of boy/girl clothing, iris and tali showed that in the world of real individuals not everything is so black and white.
Yes, to quote their own words, the brand is indeed “driven by an agenda”.
