Integrity Toys Luxe Life 2018 Convention: Style Lab

This year's Style Lab concept centres around  Tulabelle True™ as she helps promote the new Rufus Blue™ fashion label called MISS BEHAVE. Each doll in the Style Lab is sold nude and outfits are sold separately, as always. What’s new this year is that every doll and each outfit include a bonus "build-a-doll" component that allows people who buy the entire collection to build an additional, complete Poppy Parker dressed doll when the entire collection is purchased. More further down in the post. Let’s see the 2018 MISS BEHAVE Style Lab Collection

Integrity Toys 2018 reveal pt.1: THE INDUSTRY™ - The Lovesick Collection

Almost a month ago, W Club members had finally received information about the eagerly anticipated webinar presentation of Integrity Toys dolls. Four line were to be presented in the event, which was held on August 25th, with Carol Roth presiding and all designers present so that they could talk about their respective lines and also answer questions in the Q&A session at the end of the event. I am doing a separate post for each line and one for the event doll. I will give you all available information on the dolls plus my opinion on them, and welcome yours in the comments. Let’s kick off the posts then with the first line presented, THE INDUSTRY™: The Lovesick Collection, designed by David Buttry! The line also sets the overall tone for the Style Lab coming up in the convention. All these dolls are available to preorder through Integrity Toys dealers, which you can find here.

IMG_6393.JPG

My first overall impression: more daring and improved from the previous, debut collection. I’m taking a wild guess here, that the line debut did not go quite as expected and, along with the complaints about the demise of Dynamite Girls, it led to a mix of the two, hence the refreshment of the line up with familiar old sculpts, both DG and legacy ones like Janay. It also helps with the economic aspect. Price is up, all across the lines, which is an issue with many collectors. That, combined with the fact that the dolls will arrive shortly and the convention looming, surely affects spending this year. Oh, did I mention Tulabelle is getting a new sculpt? It will be unveiled at the convention. Weird to change a sculpt only a year after it premiered, I mean there was not a backlash against it like, say, Vanessa 2.0.

f Rufus’ return at the 2018 convention this Fall!

Item # 88010

IMG_6390.JPG

  • Brocade coat;
  • Satin jumpsuit;
  • Thigh-high stockings;
  • Tall lace-up boots;
  • "Pearl" choker necklace, ring, earrings and bracelet;
  • Doll stand;
  • Certificate of authenticity.
IMG_6391.JPG

Janay is the doll that started Integrity Toys, hence she has a special place in its history. I am happy that they found a place for her into regular collections and hope to see more of her in future releases. I love this one and preordered her. Both as an ensemble and separately the clothes and accessories (that pearl chocker!) have lots of potential and the doll is gorgeous. David said during the presentation that the top bun can come down and brushed back so I’ll probably do that at some point (says the guy who still has Style Renaissance Adéle untouched). Oh and Lovesick is the name of the new single that she releases with her new group. Janay 3.0 sculpt was used in JEM and ITBE releases, so it’s a bit weird that this is the 2.5 version. Or it’s probably a typo in the release email and the version is 3.5 just like the following doll, meaning the same face as 3.0 but a smaller head.

Item # 88011

Alysa® Doll

THE INDUSTRY™:The Lovesick Collection

Approx. Ship Date: November

Suggested Retail: $130.00 US

Available Via Dealers

Head Sculpt: Alysa 3.5

Body Type: THE INDUSTRY™

Foot Sculpt: High-heeled

Skin Tone: New Hispanic

Hair Color: Light Blonde

Eyelashes: Yes, Hand-applied

Quickswitch: No

IMG_6395.JPG

Included:

  • 12-inch fully articulated fashion doll with rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes;
  • Metallic lamé dress;

  • Orange tights;
  • Metallic blue loafers;
  • Handbag;
  • Barrette, earrings and ring;
  • Doll stand;
  • Certificate of authenticity.
IMG_6396.JPG

Alysa is another legacy sculpt from the early Integrity Toys lines. She is now a part f The Industry line like Janay and looks beautiful here. The whole collection is inspired by the work of Alessandro Michele at Gucci, with this outfit being the most emphatic example. 3.5 for the sculpt means she is the same as her previous appearance in ITBE 2015, but with a smaller head.

IMG_6401.JPG

Jade is another legacy sculpt of Integrity Toys, the third in this lineup. All these old faces have been redone to make the heads smaller, in order to match the rest of the heads in The Industry. Jade used to be the Asian sculpt but she looks more Latino here. The outfit looks very Gucci again, with the tee logo and the head band the most obvious references.

At the beginning of the presentation, David and Carol mentioned that one of the DG sculpts coming over to The Industry is Rufus Blue, which is a collector’s favourite. Imagine the surprise when the doll that opened the show was a new male doll, Bellamy Blue, who is Rufus’ brother. Everyone drooled over this gorgeous doll (referred to in the stats as Fashion figure), and with good reason. He is handsome, gorgeously dressed (amazing parka, fantastically embroidered shirt, printed t-shirt) and has great accessories (the bag, the glasses, the frat ring, the boots). What’s not to like? With the new Hommes collection just around the corner, it’s good to see that more great male dolls are part of the other collections as well. I preordered him and will be happy to add him to my collection. The Gucci bag is the icing of this very tasty cake.

So what do you think of the new Industry dolls? Are you getting any and if yes, which ones?

Fashion Fairytale: Integrity Toys 2017 Convention part 3 - Style Lab Collection The Industry goes to Wonderland

The Style Lab this year marks a major change. No more CI dolls but in their place, The Industry makes its first convention appearance and some Poppy Parker dolls are added to the mix. I wonder if the Poppies have The Industry body as well, which would be logical since they are part of this collection. The designs are inspired by Alice In Wonderland. As per usual, each doll in the Style Lab is sold nude and outfits are sold separately. Again the group as a whole is underwhelming, especially considering both the general theme but also Wonderland. Some of the fashions do rise above the rest but they are the exception that proves the rule. Pet peeve: why do they describe male dolls as figures? They are dolls, simple as that. Now, shall we go down the rabbit hole?

Integrity had done most of the popular fairytales in their Nu Face line, with Wonderland in IFDC 2010, with Dynamite Girl Gavin as Alice. This version of Alice is a bit darker but not goth enough. Maybe on a different doll? It does give off a Russian folk vibe.

There should have been something black instead of those red pants under the coat. A long slit skirt made of fishnet maybe? A mini skirt with a long fishnet overlay making a train in the back? Something suggesting a Queen anyway.

Here’s the rabbit then. The black and white choice makes it look more like a Playboy bunny dressed for church then a Fairytale inspired one. A monocle and chain watch would have made quite a difference. And the doll is boring, did we not get a similar Liu Liu in the first Industry collection?

There’s always one male doll in each Style Lab collection that I don’t like at all, no matter what. This is the one for 2017, even though he’s channeling the Cheshire Cat, one of my favourite characters of Wonderland. Meh does not even begin to describe it. Another new character (again with an old CI sculpt) for Industry that will look great with a different styling.

First Integrity Toys collection for 2017 unveiled: The Industry

Welcome to the new home of The Fashion Doll Chronicles! The new webpage is designed to expand the scope and content of the blog, while staying true to it! So you will be able to keep on reading the blog (and all the old posts of course), while having the joy to see large photos categorised into various sections. I have made the old blog redirect here. Our new address is www.fashiondollchronicles.com and the direct address to the blog now is www.fashiondollchronicles.com/fashiondollchronicles . Let me know what you think about the new website and redesign!

In other news, Integrity Toys just unveiled their new collection, their first in 2017, and it is the much anticipated Industry full collection. So far we had only seen two dolls, one for the general public and one in the convention, both being the 12" version of Tulabelle. New characters are introduced now, two girls and two boys. David Buttry is the man behind this collection and he has done a great job. The dolls look very modern and hip, with the incredible accessories stealing the show. My favourites are the guys and I have them preordered. The collection is available for preorder now from the regular IT dealers, so go ahead and get the ones you want. Be quick as the W Club had a heads up so some dolls might be sold out already. Let's see them one by one.

Come Thru!
Tulabelle True™ Dressed Doll
The Industry™ 
Approximate Ship Date: Late Spring/Early Summer 2017
Edition Size: 600 Dolls Worldwide
Suggested Retail Price: $125.00 US

Doll Tech Specs:

Head Sculpt: Tulabelle
Hair Color: Light-Auburn
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand-Applied
Body Type: The Industry 1.0
Foot Sculpt: Traditional High-Heeled Feet
Quick Switch Feature: No
Skin Tone: Japan

Tulabelle True™ is a fully articulated 12.5 inch doll with fully rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. Tulabelle is wearing a little black dress, paired with a sequined cropped jacket. She has a welath of accessories including a smart phone, and a coffee cup. Jewellery, a bag and boots are included too. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

I did not like the first Tulabelle and I have still not changed my mind about the sculpt, even if she has gorgeous red hair like this version. Just a reminder that according to the storyline she is Poppy Parker's granddaughter and a fashion blogger, hence the smart phone and the coffee cup, as she is supposedly frequenting fashion shows and blogs about them. I like the dress but the jewellery look wrong with it. The boots are a rehash of the NU Face ones from their last collection, but minus the gold soles and heels. The striped tights look like a zebra (not good). The pink lipstick reminds me of a previous Vanessa (and other recent FR dolls) and does not look very current in fashion, as one can see while checking last autumns Spring/Summer collections. The spirit of he outfit is a bit Balmain, which can be good or bad, depending on your personal taste. I love the dress, her bag with the word DOLLFACE on it (very tongue-in-cheek) and of course the phone and cup.

Hair Color: Pale Pink
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand-Applied
Body Type: The Industry 1.0
Foot Sculpt: Flat (Articulated at the Ankles)
Quick Switch Feature: No
Skin Tone: FR White

Liu Liu Ling™ is a fully articulated 12.5 inch doll with a combination of rooted hair and flocked hair and features hand applied eyelashes. Liu Liu is wearing a hooded faux-fur jacket over a layered mini-dress and complements the look with a jewellery set, a high-contrast carry-on bag and a rose gold cell phone. Liu Liu is the very first doll from The Industry Collection to feature the new articulated flat foot and she comes with two flat pairs of shoes, a pair of knee-high boots and a pair of sandals. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

The hair remind me of a Barbie with a similar hairstyle in yellow. but the rest is pure Integrity. The face though does not make me want her. It must be the first Asian sculpt Integrity does that does not click with me. The dress is amazing, with the layering of knit over fabric and the micro-sequins on the sleeves. The coat though is awkward and bulky and does not flatter her at all. Wondering how the flat feet will work in real life as one cannot tell from the photos. They look more refined than Poppy's articulated feet though. She has the same phone as Tulabelle. while the bag is not as original in style. The jewellery looks nice. 

Item # 88004
Zine Queen
Binx Barone™ Dressed Doll
The Industry™ 
Approximate Ship Date: Late Spring/Early Summer 2017
Edition Size: 600 Dolls Worldwide
Suggested Retail Price: $125.00 US

Doll Tech Specs:

Head Sculpt: Binx Barone (New Sculpt!)
Hair Color: Brunette
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand-Applied
Body Type: The Industry 1.0
Foot Sculpt: Traditional High-Heeled Feet
Quick Switch Feature: No
Skin Tone: New Hispanic

Binx Barone™ is a fully articulated 12.5 inch doll with fully rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. Binx Barone comes dressed in a long jacquard print overcoat and intricately constructed cocktail dress, accessorized with jewellery, a black purse, cat-eyed glasses, socks and shoes. BINX also comes with a golden tablet. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

Binx is, according to the story line, a fashion editor reporting on the collections. She is the only doll with a darker skin tone in this collection, a Latina, while there is no African American doll yet. I bet there will be one added at a later point, although they could have made one of the two caucasian or asian dolls into one. Binx looks nice but has a slightly wide face which is not flattered by the hairstyle of the doll. And while each item she is wearing looks good by itself, the combination is a bit off. Love the tablet! The socks-with-shoes combo should have been used for the Versace vinyl mini dresses at the convention, as they were the ones used in real life.Her bag is very nice too. The coat looks more like something a Fashion Royalty lady would wear and the same goes with most of her jewellery. That of course might signify that Binx is an older character than the other dolls in the collection.

Item # 88005

Another Asian boy for Integrity, Tate looks great and is dressed amazingly well too. There's nothing I do not love about this guy, so he's preordered of course! In the story line he is a fashion designer, his grandmother is Tina Tanaka (Poppy's friend using the first Ayumi sculpt) and is Tulabelle's boyfriend.

Cabot Clark™ is a fully articulated 12.5 inch fashion figure with short, fully rooted hair. Cabot wears a sheer shirt with a pair of silver-toned trousers under a "fur" jacket and comes with a miniature makeup case and ultra-detailed miniature "makeup" palettes and faux-brushes. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

Although he is supposedly a new sculpt, he reminds me too much of either Chip or Auden - he could be the old Chip face (as that character now has a new face), no? I love everything about him, he's glam and gorgeous and so are his accessories, which will be hard to keep out of the hands of all the ladies in my collection. I bet he will be a very popular guy at home, ha ha. My only reservation is the apparent velcro strip for his shirt closure at the front. I just wonder how the delicate shirt fabric will remain safe from it.

So what do you think of the first full Industry collection? Are you getting any dolls? If yes, which ones?

Integrity Toys first 2017 news - streamlining the doll bodies

Integrity Toys through their W Club sent new information about updates to their doll bodies and finalised their naming so that everyone can understand which body they are talking about. They also announced that this year is the last one with the Jem And The Holograms line, the status of the Hommes update and that the mix-up with the skin tone of Agnes from the Sister Moguls set was a typo (so the two dolls had the same skin tone from the beginning). Let's see what's up then:

The Future of the JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS™ License 

IT officially announced that their licensing agreement for the brand will come to an end at the end of 2017. To complete the brand there will be a final wave of four collectibles, released throughout the year and the W Club has obtained the right to continue offering first dibs to its members ahead of the general public. An as-promised accessory set will be included as well.

FR2013 and NU. Face 2.0 Bodies

-The silhouette and proportions will remain the same, with the exception of the knees.
-Based on collector feedback, the knees are being refined to a more natural and realistic rounded shape.
-The waist articulation is being phased out completely (again based on feedback).
-In addition to the current lower legs which will still be used, new lower legs which feature new articulated flat feet are being created. This will now allow the FR and NU. Face girls to wear flat shoes and sandals. New dolls will come with either flat (the new style) or arched (the currently used style) feet/lower legs. You will be able to swap the lower legs with currently existing ones.

Poppy Parker 1.0 Body

-The sculpt/silhouette will remain the same. THIS IS STRICTLY AN ENGINEERING UPDATE.
-Starting with the next Poppy Parker doll that is unveiled, it will be possible to completely take the body apart down to its base components. Feet will be removable.
-In addition to the current articulated ankle and coming removable feet, Poppy will now have the possibility to wear high-heels like all of our other dolls, since she will be able to share the lower legs featured on "The Industry" branded dolls.
-Since the current foot can now be removed, a new flat foot sculpt is being developed (slightly different from the FR one, to be more in proportion with Poppy's height). Poppy will be able to wear new flat shoes at some point in the future.

Homme 1.0 Body

-The sculpt/silhouette will remain the same. THIS IS STRICTLY AN ENGINEERING UPDATE.
-Starting with the next male doll released, it will be possible to completely take the body apart down to its base components. This will make repairs and replacements (whenever needed) even easier than before, as bodies will no longer need to be returned should any issue arise with a body part.

The Industry

-No actual change to the body itself. 
-The new lower leg that features flat feet will also fit this body and will be used from time to time, if the style of clothing calls for it. As per above, this will be shared with the Poppy Parker body and will give the design team more possibilities in terms of styles and looks that can be created.

New Body Reference Names Coming in 2017

With all the new updates coming and to allow everyone to keep track of the changes, we have decided to rename all of the different bodies. This was implemented to help everyone easily keep better track of what's what.

The newly revised FR2013 body will now be known as "FR 6.0"

The newly revised NU. Face body will now be known as "NF 3.0"

The newly engineered Poppy Parker body will now be known as "PP 1.5"

The newly engineered Homme Body will now be known as "FRH 1.5"

THE INDUSTRY body will be referred as "TI 1.0" since no actual changes to the sculpt or otherwise have been made, except for the use of the optional flat feet, which will be featured from time to time depending on the style being offered.

Status of the New Homme Line

The new body is still being developed. For the time being, the current male silhouette will remain in use (with the addition of the "pop-out" feature).

Informational And Other Errors

This below is the exact, un0edited text from the W Club email, explaining the mix up with the Agnes skin tone from the Sister Moguls set.

We want to add in here a reminder explainer that the W Club is a separate entity from Integrity Toys and is run as such. As we mentioned earlier, our team acts as the collectors' voice at the table, bringing the Company information and feedback as a representative of the collector base. We also manage specifically the running of the Club and our leadership does provide some consultative services to Integrity, as well.
As part of our agreement with Integrity- and with you- is to provide you with first to know information as well as updates, we do get our information directly from Integrity. Being that many on our Club team, including our founder, are very "attention to detail oriented" (a nice way of saying "Type A"), we always ask to confirm information at least three times-- usually more. As there are a number of humans involved in each step of the process (design, production, marketing, shipping, etc.) and humans are prone to make a mistake from time to time, that information sometimes is or becomes incorrect without any of us knowing. This frustrates us, as we strive to always be helpful and accurate and because we know it is frustrating to you as a customer.
If there is a change in a product, it's typically not because Integrity decided on a whim to change something and not tell anyone. It's usually a communication error in the factory, whose employees speak a different language. It's not an excuse or excusable per se, but that's the reality. It's one that the Integrity team is aware of and is focused on fixing. While they will strive for 100% accuracy, I would expect that, with humans involved, that will not be the case.
If an informational error, such as us being told that Sister Moguls' Agnes was Cream instead of Japan skin tone (which you as collectors found out in receiving your items before anyone at the W Club staff did) creates a problematic issue for you, your first step is to contact Patient Care (patientcare@integritytoys.com). This is run directly by Integrity Toys to solve any product-related issues. Please note that while we all live online what seems like 24 hours a day, the Patient Care team, led by the lovely Veronique Lambert, can take several days to respond depending on email traffic, so please give them a few business days for a response. The team always does everything to answer as fast as they can.
If the issue is just annoying but you are still happy with your product and don't need any action taken, rest assured we all know of the annoyance and are in constant communication with Integrity to try to minimize those types of issues from happening again in the future.
If you are having problems getting a satisfactory response from Integrity after a few days or just want to tell us what's on your mind, you can reach out to the W Club Liaisons at wclub@integritytoys.com. We are just that- liaisons- to follow up and to pass on information on your behalf to the company, but we are always happy to try to make you happy.
You can also contact us if you think there may be something that shifted to get an updated piece of information.
We, as the W Club team, are busy working on our registration to come soon and other fun offerings for W Club members, as well as continuing to pass on real-time feedback to Integrity, so we hope that you find our offering valuable and we look forward to continuing in your service.
