Integrity Toys 2018 Reveal: East 59th Cocktail Collection

©2018 Integrity Toys, Inc.-East 59th Collection

Even though the actual collection is not called the “cocktail” collection the designer Chris Stoeckel affectionately referred to it as such in Saturday’s webinar…so I’m going with that.  Chris shared that his inspiration was Dior and the fashions of the 1950’s.  He also shared that the fabrics he found really guided him on this collection.  I have to say that nobody tailor’s a garment like Chris.  His attention to that is impeccable and one of the reasons I adore this line so much.

Oh my word!!  You had me at the polka dot ascot but then you had to go and add a cheroot!!!  ( technically it’s probably a cigar because it is indeed tapered at one end but…cheroot sounded better to me).  Add in the plain black banded watch ( in my mind it’s Cartier) and that cognac snifter and its fabulousness.  Again, the details in these collections have me obsessed.  Truly wonderful.

That tangerine cocktail actually looks kind of good!  Wish it existed in real life to try!  LOVE the period accurate color explosion going on here.  I also love how Chris gives us two different looks in his designs that improves the playability and versatility of these dolls.  Well done!  That vibrant orange hat and gloves will be a favorite addition to my collection along with the yummy suit!

Ok…so Mai Tai’s are a particular favorite of mine given my family and I vacation in Hawaii a lot.  It’s no surprise that the name alone had me interested.  The doll itself with her auburn locks and swooped bangs are exquisite.  I adore the boat necked striped day dress as well as the sunny short set and jacket.  Add in those fantastic wedge sandles and charm braclet and this doll has it all.  The Mai Tai helps too.

What is it about this color?!!!  I just go gooey inside.  I am not the only one either…there have been studies done on this Tiffany blue color and it’s just one that people have a strong response to on average.  I can’t even quantify how much I love this gown .  The elegance of it plus the grace of a brunette Evelyn wearing it just makes my heart sing.  The story card for this doll states that the gold gift box is empty for a reason…there is another story there to be told.  Looks like a champagne bottle box to me .  This was first doll in the shopping cart for me from this collection but frankly…they all ended up in the cart by the end of the presentation.

First question…where is the Americano cocktail??  LOL!  Guess she knocked it back and is well on her way or perhaps that is where she is headed after a day of shopping.  I have to admit, my first thought was not a cocktail but in fact a cup of “Americano” coffee when I saw the name of this doll.  Don’t judge…I’m from Seattle and coffee is a religion here.  So my thinking was a delicate cup of espresso would have been perfect here.  I’m planning on adding it.  Drinks aside, the accessories are to die for.  That Birkin bag…faint.  The shoes with the cut outs…swoon.  The additional white shirt to wear under the sheath….brilliant!!  The little box of cannoli…ok I’m done…who do I throw the money at for this doll.

She’s back!!  And…fortified with a bottle of fine gin. Smile

LOL…ok so I was very surprised (pleasantly so) to see Miss Victoire making her comeback before the IT convention.  Technically she will indeed arrive after the convention but to have pictures of the new face mold before the convention was nice.  I’m not sure how I am feeling about this new “updated” face mold.  She is definitely younger and I’m still trying to figure out how I feel about it.  The fashion though is wonderful!  How yummy is this brocade?!!  Absolutely love that she is a redhead in this version and coupled with this blue brocade…fabulousness.

Love the playability and wonderful accessories in this line.  The vibrant colors and rich storylines work well together.  Hats off to Mr. Chris Stoekel and his eye for details and historical couture fashion.  How he manages to translate some of the iconic 1950’s fashion trends into 1:6 scale is beyond me.  He has a gift.

Last line..Fashion Royalty Collection reveal post will be up this afternoon.

Meet You at East 59th!

Wow!!  Wow, Wow, Wow is all I can say of Integrity Toys newest product line.  For those of us who have been waiting for the return of our beloved Victoire Roux…the waiting just got a little sweeter.  While we did not get a new Victoire, we did receive some of her friends and this new world that IT has created looks to be amazing!  The director of this yumminess is the uber talented Chris Stoeckel.  While we did not get Victoire in this new release, we did get word that she is coming.  {That sound in the background is Rebecca squealing with happiness}.  The story behind this line is 1950’s Hollywood and a possible feud between competing divas..I’m thinking Joan Crawford/Betty Davis.  With all that drama, you need killer fashions and who better to do that than Chris.  We have loved his 1950s inspired couture in the Victoires of the past.  It looks like his future designs will take us to a whole other level.  Soooooo excited!

{FAINT!!!}  Oh…my…word.  I am traveling as I write this blog post and I was sitting at a restaurant yesterday morning when these pictures came into the WClub members inboxes.  I am absolutely sure I embarassed myself when I squealed with delight on this one.  Where to start with the love…..hmmmm.  Ok, first is the color combinations.  Adore this red and black with the raven hair.  New face sculpt on these characters and I love them.  I don’t advocate smoking ( Constance..you need to rethink that one) but the props are so appropriate for the 1950’s.  It’s the attention to detail and the playability that I love the most I think.  Chris has given us two separate looks on every doll.  Bonus!!!  Love it!!!

{FAINT…AGAIN}.  Chris, next time give us collectors some warning before you unleash this kind of gorgeousness on us  My heart cant take it Winking smile

A redhead in electric blue!  Adore.  Love, love, love the silhouette on the gown.  Also love the embroidered pants look.  the accessories are spot on…except…for the plastic shoes.  Nope…no at this pricepoint people  I am hoping IT rethinks this one.  I and many collectors concur…this is a misplaced note in the middle of a beautiful symphony.  Apparently Evelyn likes the makeup because she comes with a full set.  Adorable!  Head to ankle gorgeous…plastic shoes need an upgrade.

{Rebecca now has a concussion from fainting}

OK, so this might be my favorite.  The two separate looks are to die for..evening to day perfection.  The accessories are spot on.  I adore the floral headpiece.  The plastic shoes have to go but everything else is a huge thumbs up.  Also adore the facial screening on her.

{Rebecca is now on her way to hospital…too many faints and now has concussion}

Cocktails indeed!  I know I will need a few after this collection to lament my poor, poor wallet.  I have a think for well tailored suits.  This one is perfection  I love both sets of gloves with these looks  The driving gloves in particular!  Simple jewelry is perfect here as the suit s the star.  The shoes..oh why oh why with the plastic.  I’m sound like a broken record…I know.  The facial screening on her is my least favorite of this collection but not a deal breaker.  I’m still buying. 

The big questions from me and many collectors is…what is the body on this lady?  Is it FR2, Victoire…enquiring minds want to know.  I am sure we will get answers soon.  At the time this goes to print there will be a live chat with the designer Chris Stoeckel.  I am sure he will give us this info. 

I hate the write and run but I am on he road driving a bunch of orchestra instruments and luggage back from L.A.  Will hopefully have more information to share with you tomorrow.

If you want to purchase these beauties find your local Integrity Toys Authorized Dealer  I would run not walk as many of these have already sold out to WClub members.
