It looks like Mr. Best and Lars(set designer for Mattel) are channeling their inner Dior with this set.  How Fabulous!!  I ask again…can we please, please, please get these little chairs in production for purchase?!!

Ahhhh….so very Dior.  I want to see the sketches on the table.  Any clues to what is coming out this year??

{SWOON}  You had me at the hat people…at the hat.  I have to admit though, the little side chignon is making me do the happy dance too.   Here is another thing making me do the happy dance, the new box design.

Rogier over at one of my favorite doll blogs, Dutch Barbie World, reported this morning with these pictures from European Amazon sites.  If you want information on the Silkstone world first…sign up for his blog posts.  I have to say…I like the IRL photos even better.  And that pale pink liner?!!! {Swoon…again}  Now how am I supposed to debox that?!  Rogier laughed and said “Easy, get two”  Wise words Mr. Corbeau.

The new logo is very reminiscent of the vintage Dior logo.

Owning a Silkstone has never been more affordable with this $50.00 price tag.  What are you waiting for collectors?  I will be running to get this one…may even get two Winking smile

      • Heehee! I know right?! I think we need to enter a program for our chair fetish Brenda…we really do 😉

    • 🙂 You need to join Brenda ( comment above ) and I in our group of recovering chair addicts. I don’t think we want to really recover though LOL! YES, I am totally looking forward to this years Silkstone offerings. It is a great way to start off this year. The Dolce and Gabbana looks of last year, while different, were not exactly my cup of tea.

    • 🙂 Be careful Ruth…Silkstones are like potato chips…you can’t just have one.

  3. This doll’s face is lovely! It reminds me of the facepaint on vintage dolls. This one is certainly a beauty.

    • I completely agree! Can’t wait to get this one in my collection. 🙂

  4. i found a doll pic on pinterest and there was no name for her. I have looked through numerous of your photos and can’t find her. I think her hair is blk or dk brwn. She is wearing a nice rose/blk trim gown I think. Can you tell me her name and if she is still available? We lost my mom to cancer and this doll looks almost exactly like my mom when she was younger. I hope you can help.

    • Hi Lucinda,

      I am sorry to hear about your Mom. Was the picture one of mine? If so, is there any way to give me an address for the picture on pinterest so I can take a look? Without the image, I don’t think I will be able to help you much.
