A Dior Holiday Treat For Every Doll Collector

I was perusing new additions from my favorite Flickr photostreams recently and a series of photos completely caught my eye.  NylonBleu has long been a favorite of mine on Flickr.  Her photos are romantic homages to the art form of doll  photography.  Her photos for me always evoke grace, style and a true love for fashion and fashion doll collecting…it shows in each and every photo she posts.  Last week, she shared photos on her Flickr of the unveiling of Printemps’ holiday windows in Paris.  Dior designed the windows this year and the only words that come close to describing my reaction is awe inspiring.  I don’t know the scale of these dolls…but the pure inspirational artistry and design of these windows has me frantically searching for a 1/6 carousel horse for a future photo shoot .

Oh…and Integrity Santa…Please oh please let me find one of these in 1/6 scale in my Christmas stocking.  I promise to be a very, very good girl.

How absolutely magical are these?!!  It’s like a dream you don’t want to wake up from.  Oh to be standing in front of these windows and drinking in these images.  The thought just makes me smile as I sit here sipping coffee on a Saturday morning.  To see more fabulous photos of these windows and NylonBleu’s beautiful work visit her Flickr photostream at http://www.flickr.com/photos/38766564@N04/page1/.   If you need a few more holiday dream moments, watch the video that NylonBleu pointed us to on her Flickr.  It is about the making of these glorious windows and it is 100% pure unadulterated eye candy.  LOVE IT!  Thank you, Thank you Isabelle for sharing the photos of these magical windows and the youtube link for a glimpse into the inspiration behind these holiday fantasies.

    • Exactly! I don’t make it over to Seattle during the holidays so it was nice to see these extravagant windows.

    These window displays are absolutely beautiful. I love when store front windows are decorated during the Christmas season. It really puts you into the holiday spirit. Very magical.
