If you’ve been alive for the last 12 months, you’ll have noticed that unicorns took over the world. Seriously there is 5.5 MILLION #unicorns on Instagram.
From unicorn phone covers, unicorn handbags, unicorn hair, unicorn cakes and excessive use of the unicorn emoji, we can agree that unicorn fatigue was inevitable. What I didn’t expect was to feel ouvert rage every time I spied a unicorn.
I think we hit peak unicorn with the advent of unicorn toast and since then my ire towards the mythical creatures have been intense. Probably more intense than any mythical creature actually warrants.
So what’s to replace the unicorn?
The good folks at Dolce & Gabbana called it last Spring with this unequivocal statement announcing the pineapple as the new symbol of kult kitsch.
