Canadian singer Celine Dion has unveiled a new gender-neutral line of childrenswear called CELINUNUNU in collaboration with global children’s fashion brand NUNUNU, which was founded in 2009.
The singer posted a video on Instagram that featured herself walking through a maternity ward with babies dressed in the typical blue and pink that differentiates baby boys from girls.

“Our children, they are not really our children, as we are all just links in a never-ending chain, which is life,” Dion narrates during the video, after which she is seen transforming the blue and pink into black and white in a symbolic gesture of gender equality.
Dion also captioned the video: “I’ve always loved NUNUNU and what they represent. [The brand] lets children choose outside stereotypes and norms, so they can bring from within their own tastes and preferences.”

The new CELINUNUNU collection includes 70 silhouettes for children aged 0 to 14 years that aim to harmonize timeless cuts, symbols and a minimalist color palette with the gender-neutral concept, created in direct collaboration with designers Iris Adler and Tali Milchberg, the two cofounders NUNUNU.
Items are priced from US$34 for a baby beanie to $299 for a leather jacket.
“We help them feel free, creative, inspired, respectful of one another and happy in the world,” said Dion.
