Add fashion designer to the long list of accomplishments by mega-star Celine Dion. The five-time Grammy winner is teaming up with children’s fashion line Nununu to come up with a gender-neutral line of clothing called CELINUNUNU.
Maybe we can’t pronounce it but it’s still cool!
The company issued a press release, saying:
“CELINUNUNU unites two forces by one voice: fashion has the power to shape people’s minds. The brand breaks stereotypes and inspires children to be free and find their own individuality through clothes.
“Iconic vocalist Celine Dion and fashion designers Iris Adler and Tali Milchberg, co-founders of the global children’s fashion brand NUNUNU, have partnered to create CELINUNUNU. This new kids fashion brand liberates children from the traditional roles of boy/girl, offering them the freedom to choose clothes that strengthen their own power of personality, from a tender age.
“CELINUNUNU believes that fashion builds concepts deep within our minds and changes thought patterns. It aims to free the forces of creativity and imagination in children, nurturing equality and flexibility of thought that enable kids to fully embrace who they are. It encourages children’s choices to be driven by their own true essence. CELINUNUNU instills the concept that everything is possible, equally.”
A Mision Impossible-style video staring Dion accompanied the launch:
I’ve always loved nununu and what they represent. Partnering with them to encourage a dialogue of equality and possibility makes so much sense. – Céline xx…https://t.co/wYoqnDhIIE#celinununu @celinununu pic.twitter.com/HWeO54h4NT

A gender-neutral clothing line that isn’t covered in princesses and trucks? Yes, please!
Twitter was sold on the idea and on Dion. Mostly Dion.

“I didn't know that the thing that I needed in the conversation around societal constructs was Céline Dion in a power suit pretending to be a gender cat burglar, but now that we have it, I don't know how we ever survived before.” 😂😂😂 https://t.co/eGOts4uFYj

Can we ever stop loving Celine Dion, who has just introduced a line of gender-neutral children's clothing? The answer is no, we cannot. https://t.co/DSRKLRboAC

Love the clothes, hate the prices? For some, the line is unaffordable.
I wish this gender-neutral children's clothing line Celine Dion collaborated on wasn't *insanely* expensive, because the clothes are awesome—way cuter than the dumb pink bows-and-football options you usually get. https://t.co/DehcVggGKD pic.twitter.com/kN0utMNH0d

80$ for a T-shirt!

Wow what average person is going to pay 86 bucks for a shirt for a toddler. Clearly her target audience is her peers

Very cool stuff but, I agree.. I'm not about to spend $100 for a pair of pants that my son or daughter will ruin or grow out of in a month.

I love that she did this to atleast attempt to make gender-neutral clothes mainstream. But the price point is insane! Wish it could be more accessible to people who don’t have that kind of money.

Let’s hope the company listens to future consumers and works out a better price point.
