Magia2000

O wow it felt like Christmas morning when Rebecca send me her pictures from yesterdays Magia2000 Ooak party. What an amazing gift to see so much beauty and details in this collection.

The space theme from this years convention would not be my theme. But wow, now I see how Fashionable Barbie can be in Space. What I always love about Magia2000 is that  their collection has a theme. And especially this year the inspiration is so diverse inside the theme. But it all comes beautiful together in one collection. From modern Couture inspiration by Ralph & Russo and Chanel, vintage Balenciaga, Lady gaga, and vintage Star Wars and Star Trek Icons.

So sit back am enjoy this amazing collection.

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}.

Integrity Toys Reveals FR/FR2 for 2014

This past Saturday morning, WClub members were treated to the release of information on 4 of Integrity Toy’s product lines.  I will be sending out 4 different blog posts to give information on these lines.  If you are interested in any of these items, you should contact an Integrity Toys Dealer ASAP to secure your selection.  Many of these items are already selling out  as WClub members were allowed to order early.

First reveal up is the 2014 FR line.  This years “Safari” inspired collection was a collaboration between designers Vaughn Sawyer and Jason Wu.  This years collection focuses on the 8 core characters going forward with the new FR/FR2 concept. I would call it “Safari Chic” with some especially fine detailed accessories.  It is a strong and fairly cohesive collection. I adore the color palette used in everything.  The facial screenings are strong and sophisticated.  The accessories are amazingly detailed (check out all the patterns and stitching on the purses alone).

I adore the boots in this outfit and that bag!  I was kind of bummed I did not pick up the gorgeous Natalia at convention last year…now I get to make up for it.  One critique though…could we please see some other kind of hairstyle on poor Natalia.  The girll has had the same hairstyle for the last couple of  releases.

Holy accessories batman!  You had me at the shoes…at the shoes.  The bag is a miniature copy of the Jason Wu “Jordan” bag.  I love the soft neutral colors of this one.  I also love the new facial screenings in this collection…most evident in this Kyori.  Again, this is all about the details…and there were plenty to admire in this entire collection.  I love the cross lacing on the skirt.

I am thinking…Best…Event…Doll…Ever!  How can I pass up a redhaired updo Agnes?  I can’t. 

I.T. also announced and showed a photograph of the an IT Direct shoe pack coming out in the fall.  IT direct means lottery people.  There were four pair of fantastic shoes shown in this pack but no pictures were released outside of the video.  I.T. has asked that we not duplicate any portion of the webinar so I can’t share a photo here.  If you are WClub member, you can view the Webinar in it’s entirety on Vimeo.  Just look in your email for a message from the Wclub for the address and password.

Poppy Parker 2014 release coming up in a minute….literally….one minute.
