What Are the Implications of Designer Katie Eary's My Little Pony Penises?

by Sandra Song

It's easy to fall into the trap of sentimentalizing the pop culture symbols from our youth but if London-based designer Katie Eary has any say, we'll never look at a major (and majorly resurgent) childhood icon the same way again. At the debut of her new clothing line, which she says is "designed to overthrow innocence," models rocked the London Men's Fashion Week runways wearing shirts and shorts printed with images of My Little Ponies sporting giant penises.

While Eary said that the main goal of her prints was to subvert childhood, perhaps there are larger reactionary implications to her collection -- namely a graphic and extremely visceral step away from the tie-dyed, pastiche-loving '90s-overload we've been inundated with for the past few seasons.
