Barbie for big girls.

Vogue Paris–Panoplies

I am a fashion doll blogger.  A large component of what I write about and photograph is about the fashion.  I enjoy following the fashion industry and watching the fashion shows and reports.  I enjoy giving my picks and pans after award ceremonies.  This being the case, it thrills me when  my love of following the fashion word and trends melds with my love of collecting fashion dolls in a totally different and inspirational way.  In the December 2014 issue of Vogue Paris, editor and stylist Celia Azoulay and Laurent Philippon along with photographer Giampaolo Sgura collaborated to bring collectable fashion dolls to Vogue…and it’s fabulous.  I had to share it here. 

Panoplies , I believe, simply translated means “outfits”  and this editorial gave us that….and a whole lota accessories.  Accessories that I would kill to have in my closet ( doll or otherwise).























What an amazingly clever editorial!!  Ok Mattel, I would buy these.  The luggage alone in the Louis Vuitton box….{swoon}.

    I love these so much. A panoply is actually an Ancient Greek term referring to the entire kit of armor and weapons that a hoplite soldier had to buy to join the army as a foot soldier. I love that it refers here to a woman and her necessary accoutrements. These are the coolest. I foresee some 1/6 scale versions appearing at some point.
