IDEX Integrity Toys Reveal–Poppy Parker as Sabrina!

Today Integrity Toys revealed a small portion of their 2012 lineup and all I can say is WOWZA!

I guess my biggest squeal moment was the announcement that they will be doing Poppy Parker™ as Sabrina®.  This is an iconic fashion movie that put Audrey Hepburn and Hubert de Givenchy on the fashion map.  You will see that Givenchy is never credited in the Sabrina movie as the designer of Ms. Hepburn’s exquisite wardrobe.  Edith Head went on to receive the Oscar for this movie even though she did not design the female leads wardrobe.  Let’s face it folks…it’s Sabrina’s wardrobe and the gamine eyes of Audrey Hepburn that carry that movie. I have tremendous respect for Ms. Head’s work but I never understood her willingness to accept the award for that movie.  Not right.   Most accounts state that Monsieur Givenchy was always an extreme gentleman about the whole thing and I guess in the long run…everyone knew those designs were his and not Ms. Heads work so the true credit went to the true owner.  He should have received the award though.  Monsieur Givenchy went on to work with Ms. Hepburn in Funny Face and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Integrity Toys designer David Buttry did the most amazing job in my opinion of bringing these to the 1/6 scale arena.

So sweet!  Love the attention to detail in this giftset.  I love the fact that Mr Buttry included the cooking smock with this set.  Brilliant!

As a fan of the movie and an avid collector of Poppy Parker, this entire series is an absolute slam dunk for me.  Mr Buttry…my happy collector heart is full and my sad collector wallet will be empty….. thanks to you.

If you are interested in any of these lovely ladies, I suggest emailing your Integrity Toys dealer ASAP.  These won’t last long.  More to come form Integrity Toy’s IDEX reveal in a few hours.  Winking smile

    • I was so excited when these were announced. I am sure some of my Silkies will be sporting some of these outfits.

  3. I adored every one of these, but limited myself to just one…Most Sophisticated! Because there were all those Monograms as well…

    But I think Poppy is adorable as Sabrina and I hope that we see many more incarnations of Poppy as Audrey Hepburn in the future. Funny Face!!

    • We are two peas in a pod so I knew you would adore these. Just as I said in the post, I literally squealed when I saw Most Sophisticated. My absolute clear favorite of the entire line. I think David did such a faithful reproduction of this line. I am hoping and praying we will see Funny Face in the future. How fantastic would that be?!

    Dear Rebecca,
    I have been lucky enough to meet Hubert de Givenchy a few times on several occasions. First as a trainee fashion designer, then much later, in the street where he lives and that’s where I used to work. I remember telling him about all the dolls being made after his glorious creations and he was unaware of them since he doesn’t own the copyrights. These gowns are Paramount (or Universal) properties. Yet I told him the details and perfection put together and I wish I could have shown him a few in person… Who knows, maybe next time…Along with Funny Face, I would love to see Paris when it sizzles, Charade and How to steal a million as well.

    • Bonjour Rebecca,

      You are so lucky to have actually met him. What an honor. I agree with you. I would love to see a Poppy Parker as Audrey in Funny Face.
