The final W Club doll for 2017: is it the best Vanessa Perrin giftset ever?

As the 2017 W Club period begun late last year, it’s only natural that the last Club doll of the year is unveiled in January 2018.  It was a phenomenal year for Club members and the last doll confirms this fact in the best possible way. An incredible Vanessa Perrin giftset, designed by talented Jessy Ayala. The doll can be preordered by W Club members until January 19th and should arrive this summer.

Vanessa Perrin is a 12.5-inch fully articulated fashion doll with rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. This gift set includes three complete looks ranging from day-to-night: First, she starts her day in an Asian inspired lingerie set that includes a custom printed kimono with high-contrast details, then she sets the tone in a high-fashion two-piece ensemble composed of a sheer blouse, black pants and custom embroidered gloves. Finally, she switches to a soft, bright pink asymmetrical evening gown with delicate embroidery and beading details.

Vanessa comes complete with two pairs of shoes, a set of regular hands and a set of gloved hands, two jewelry sets, two fully functional (i.e. you can put her favorite accessories inside) monogrammed pieces of luggage, a clutch purse and sunglasses. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included. A W Club members-only exclusive.

what can I say? Jessy seems to be surpassing himself with each subsequent release he oversees. It’s only been a month that The Faces Of Adéle sent collectors to 7th heaven, and that came after the gorgeous Metamorphosis Erin unveiled in August. Each doll is better than the previous one, not only fashion-wise but in style and character too. Vanessa, in her original sculpt, looks amazing here, reminding me a bit of her Night Warrior incarnation, combined with the A Fashionable Life one. Which of course means perfection. Raven hair, blue eyes and fiery red lips make her one of the most beautiful Vanessa dolls ever released.

Her three outfits are equally mesmerising. The asymmetrical evening gown, with Jessy’s favourite skirt style, short in front and long in the back, the delicate embroidery and the pink colour gives equally traditional and modern Japanese vibes. The pink strappy heels finish this off in a nice way, although I would have preferred something more edgy, to offset the cuteness factor. The Asian influences are obvious throughout the giftset.

The second outfit is totally back, with a sheer blouse over pants and the most eccentric pair of gloves on an Integrity Toys Doll ever released. Her sandals, bag and jewelry finish off the ensemble perfectly. The third outfit is a Leisure one, a short kimono, printed with birds (cranes?), over lingerie.

Topping it all off are the two luggage pieces, reminding me of the early sets released by Integrity in the Voyages collections. Pity one of them is not a wheeled suitcase like the one Blue Blood Elyse had, as I already own similar pieces from the older Fashion Royalty sets. In any case, they complete what must be one the best Vanessa Perrin giftset Severine released - only True Royalty is better in my opinion.  What do you think?
