Recently in the press read: “Christian Lacroix creates for the famous sign of decoration and furnishing Habitat:” Fashion Monsters “(trendy monsters). The man says about them: “I have loved drawing these gentle monsters who are given all the sorrows, pains and secrets they turn into smile.” Half angels, half-demon, he prénomment: Belly, Smoothy and Sweety… You can bet that these little monsters will make fun of adults before the children!
Yes, remember there is a little more than a year, this same Christian Lacroix had exposed his “monsters”, kinds of figurines made with fabric scraps, small trivial things created on the corner of a table, sort of fad of fashion designer … This was the favorite for all fans of fashion, the press reserved her beautiful pages where her little monsters were nicely highlighted.
The trend was launched … Therefore there appeared on the net many blogs and sites that had comforters and other small dolls, their sales were legitimized by the fact that the classic toy for children aesthetic was shattered and that the key “hand-made” became fiercely “in”. In the jungle of offers for this kind of product, we can find enough original specimens: “The series of Bioz” on Lili shop.
The toy has become decorative object, fashion and exclusive … and it sells! For proof, the country pub Opel Corsa which features soft toys more or less rock and roll … People talk about it, they want those little dolls that are neither beautiful nor endearing, but damaged, healed … the return to “childhood to adult” therefore is required: for Evian which blackmailed “the child in you,” or the new wave of toys Trexi to customize which directly comes from Japan and making more and more followers.
This new trend gathered all the data to be the buzz 2007: neutral figurines all white, to paint according to his inspiration, his desires, which can both receive the child that the adult, which often turn into little monster or more less trash. It also makes an excellent decorative object that is unique because of more customized. There are already collectors, wild places and expo evidence that the toy Tie is not ready to extinguish their presence at trade shows such as “Children of the Universe” or “Home and object.”
You still have to know that revolves around these toys is resolutely turned towards the adult world, in fact these white toys become new paintings trendy designers, so new media of expression. CharacterStation The site gives a fairly clear picture of these toys-addict.
Between the soft toys for fashionatas and Trexi custom, the adult world oscillates between regression and a new design of products formerly reserved for children. The border between childhood and the rest becomes increasingly tenuous. It undoubtedly remains of beings who grow up too fast, adults who would still enjoy the benefits of childhood. Distributors themselves have understood: regressive packaging for the food, cartoonish multiple readings: Shrek, Ice Age, etc…
