NU.Face Essentials: capsule collection by Integrity Toys

The second capsule collection revealed this week consists of three NU. Face close up dolls designed by Jessy Ayala. The concept is the launch of Lukas Maverick's very own underwear brand, that looks suspiciously a lot like Calvin Klein (hence the black & white photos). Each doll comes with NF branded underwear, shoes, a stand and a certificate of authenticity, enclosed in an elegant package. This collection is brought to the W Club by IT Direct with 3 members-only lotteries and special Club pricing of only $99 per doll (plus S&H). The two ladies will be available now and ship soon after the lottery ends, while Lukas will be available later this summer. The price is not bad, but it is still a basic doll. Good to see edition sizes at 900 (Dominique is 800), gives more chances to win. I’d like to get all of these.

Finally a Dominique in a soft face palette! I’d love to add this sculpt to my collection and now is a good opportunity. Her photos are a bit blurry but they came like that in the email. I just hope the silvery eyeliner is less pronounced in the final doll.

There are two dressed dolls and a gift set inspired by retro paper doll designs available through regular IT dealers and also an IT Direct exclusive two-doll "Pink Champagne" gift set, featuring Victoire Roux modelling her friend Aurelia's latest creation on her wedding day.

IMG_9170.JPG

Beautiful doll but not enough to tempt me into buying her, although I want a dark haired Victoire for my collection (the ones I have have all variations of red hair). Elegant and bright ensemble with nice details and accessories. It has a whiff of the Busy Gal Barbie. This hat has been done to death in Poppy Parker line and should be retired. There were so many different hat designs in the 1950s so it would be nice to see something else for a change. Love the colour combinations.

IMG_9177.JPG

A new Aurelia, not that different from the first one at first look. I don’t particularly like the dress with the weird draping. I wish we could see more Charles James style gowns instead of Bon Bon style dresses. Not a fan of the colour combination either. She has the more realistic gloves which is a very good thing.

IMG_9192.JPG

Included:

  • Two 12" fully articulated dolls with rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes;
  • Victoire wears an intricately designed pink lace trapeze style wedding gown with matching satin bow detail at the waist;
  • Her maid of honor Lady Aurelia Grey wears a lovely long-sleeved, cream satin and gold micro-sequin cocktail dress, wrapped in a scrumptious matching shoulder length faux-fur stole tied with a gold-tone satin bow;
  • Each doll has her own "pearl" necklace and matching earrings;
  • Pink pumps;
  • "Golden" pumps;
  • A pink bouquet, opera length gloves and a matching veil for the bride;
  • Alternate pair of "painted on" short-gloved hands for Aurelia;
  • Miniature bottle of pink champagne;
  • Two "gold" rimmed champagne glasses;
  • Two doll stands (each doll has her own);
  • Certificate of authenticity.
IMG_9193.JPG

I really don’t like this one. The colours, shapes, textures, are all somewhat off. The Victoire gown in particular looks shapeless. The fabric and embroidery don’t particularly do the shape justice and keep it from looking good on the doll. It’s a great price for two dolls though. Oven mittens make an appearance on the bride.

Ru Paul dolls are back again! Shantey, you stay!

RuPaul announced on Instagram, just in time for Jason Wu's birthday, that the RuPaul doll’s are making a comeback! Then social media were buzzing with the news, and sure enough, the company email arrived. Integrity Toys, in collaboration with Jason Wu, is launching a new limited edition series of dolls based on the likeness of Ru Paul. The first series was released thirteen years ago, before RuPaul became a household name with Drag Race. It’s a bit surprising that the comeback took so long.

IMG_6772.JPG

You can already pre-order the very first doll in the new series, named "Kitty Gurl Pink". The new doll was designed by Jason Wu himself. It has a new articulated body sculpt, uses the same sculpt that the original doll’s used, has two new hand sculpts made for this and has feet that match Fashion Royalty feet, so they can share shoes. 

IMG_6773.JPG

So, who is RuPaul? For those of you living under a rock, RuPaul is an American drag queen, singer and actor known for such TV shows as 'RuPaul's Drag Race' and 'RuPaul's Drag U'. He was born RuPaul Andre Charles on November 17, 1960, in San Diego, California. RuPaul eventually took his crossdressing persona to stages in Atlanta and New York with bands and as a dancer. In the early 1990s, he landed a record contract and released his first album, Supermodel of the World, while also starting a career in acting. On the strength of his TV shows, including RuPaul's Drag Race, and his oversized personality, RuPaul has become a pop culture icon. (Reference from Biography.com).

IMG_6774.JPG

Click below to view the surprise video announcement featuring RuPaul himself announcing the return of everyone's favorite officially licensed collectible doll series made into his likeness.

Kitty Gurl Pink will retail at $145.00 + shipping for the general public (see link in a previous paragraph). A portion of the entire edition size (which is 1000 dol’s) has been reserved for W Club members and is being offered via a "right-to-buy" lottery at the special members-only price of $135.00 + shipping and handling (Lottery deadline is October 9th, noon ET). While the general public and W Club members alike may pre-order the doll starting immediately on a first-come, first-served basis (until that portion of the edition size sells out) using the link published on Integritytoys.com and social media, W Club members can enter and be randomly selected to win in the right-to-buy lottery in order to obtain the specially reduced, members-only pricing.

  • Opera glasses;
  • Pair of hands with long manicured nails (New hand sculpt!);
  • Alternate pair of grip hands (New hand sculpt!);
  • Doll stand;

I preordered the doll the moment I got the email. I figured that, even though it is a large edition, the $10 difference is not that much to make me enter a lottery. I love both doll and outfit. The eyes look a bit different than the older release, but the doll still looks like RuPaul. And a Jason Wu dress! And opera glasses! Fabulous!

Integrity Toys 2018 reveal pt.2: Nu Face - The Counter - Culture Collection

Next up in the webinar was the eagerly anticipated Nu Face line. Jessy Ayala designed this again and was invited by Carol Roth to present the concept. It seems that the Nu Face agency ladies take part in an edgy video clip, designed to cause controversy. The appearance of Lukas Maverick, along with a line up of characters not used for quite a while, plus an old sculpt as a new character is one part of the equation. The other is edgy, outré fashions and styling, neon colour details and S&M details that made lots of collectors happy but also left many in the cold. Let’s check what all the fuss is about. Have in mind that the price of each doll in this line is now $150.00 and they are all available from Integrity Toys dealers except one, that you will see at the end of the post.

IMG_6421.JPG

Lukas makes a surprise appearance here, as most people were expecting him to be included in the new Hommes line to be presented this fall in Convention. He still has the old Homme body, just like the Industry guys. His styling is quite daring for IT standards, reminding many a Tom Of Finland guy (Jessy admitted it was one of the influences). I wonder what exactly makes an otherwise very interesting doll cost $150.00 wearing a pretty basic outfit without any accessories to make it so expensive. Is it the tattoo? I seriously doubt it. Is it the painted hairstyle and facial hair? Is it the septum ring? IT knows Lukas will sell out no matter what (as he did, soon after the presentation). I did preorder him, he’s gorgeous, even though the outfit looks half done. And I mean the bottom half. Yes, those shorts are an eyesore (pun intended). Pet peeve: sandals with socks and garters. German tourists rejoice. A Perfecto style boot with metallic tip would have been so much better.

IMG_6432.JPG

Yes, Integrity Toys heard people calling for the Vanessa 2.0 sculpt comeback as a different character and here she is. Violaine is the younger Perrin sister and she rocks! Great styling and make up, with lots of piercings, even a nose ring that is removable. I love the stacked bangles, they remind me of someone completely different: Millicent Rogers, the early 20th century socialite, wore lots of stacked bangles, just as Loulou De La Falaise did much later. Violaine is a variant of Violette (remember that the Perrins are French and all daughters have names that begin with a V) and also a 1996 single by Cocteau Twins, whom I adore. Some people did not like the dark blue lipstick but I think it fits her perfectly. That and her eyeliner are reminiscent of Aerodynamic Vanessa Perrin from 2009. The jeans are definitely like the ones by Balenciaga in their Spring 2018 collection. They are convertible, meaning that each piece is detachable - they have hooks to attach to each other. I am thinking that maybe I can recreate the Versace denim JLo boots that looked like drooping pants. I love the asymmetrical top and the paillete parka. The bag is a miniature wonder and yellow, just perfect. So,is the chocker. And the peacock ring is amazing. Her boots look plain by comparison. Glad to say that she’s coming home.

After a prolonged absence, Annik returns again, with a last name (Vandale), wild styling and a prominent place in the Nu Face collection. She has the same police/bondage hat as Lukas, a beautiful small bag with lots of details, a face ring that cannot be removed (it will leave a dent and void the warranty) and a pair of semi transparent boots made of organza that, according to what Jessy said, has a holographic effect.

IMG_6476.JPG
IMG_6477.JPG

Dominique is back but in Nu Face instead of her usual Fashion Royalty position. She gives off a JLo vibe and her multimix fashion is quite interesting. The violet lipstick looks quite good on her but could be problematic for redressing. Her eyeglasses look a bit weird on her. I think a pair styled like those worn by the band Devo would have looked much better.

This is the lottery doll, so do not ask dealers for this one. Colette 1.0 returns - last we saw her she was part of the W Club wedding trio. She’s dark again, which is cool, and her fashion is the most Indian inspired from the whole collection. Her fashion is Gucci styled again, with lots of colours and textures mixing, much in the style Alessandro Michele has being using in the Gucci collections these past few years. Her boots remind me of the ones worn by this year’s upgrade Eugenia. Love the bag.

The traditional Net-A-Porter debacle goes live once again with a new Jason Wu doll and his perfume

A few days ago, W Club members received information about a new Jason Wu exclusive in collaboration with Net-A-Porter: an offer of the Jason Wu Perfume with a limited edition Elyse Jolie doll, dressed in the designer’s gown that Lily Aldridge, the face of the fragrance campaign, was wearing in last year’s CFDA Awards. I’m not crazy about either doll or dress (she’s like a pale version of Séduisante Elyse) and with the price it comes with, it was the easiest pass ever. More below.

The doll went live today in most Net-A-Porter websites in Europe but not Asia (apart from Nepal it seems) and certainly not in the USA, causing much grief and causing lots of conversations in forums online from disgruntled doll collectors not being able to get a doll. The doll/perfume combo means no air shipping, causing problems with ordering if you live in a country that cannot receive packages with ground shipping from the respective Net-A-Porter warehouse. Price of the combo? $380 US, or £292 UK still available at time of writing this post. There was an email from the W Club informing members that the US Net-A-Porter website has not put up the doll yet and is unclear when that will be, maybe later tonight or tomorrow.

The W Club secured a second version of the doll, with blonde hair, for a members only lottery this September. The catch: overseas members have to pay the full set price but never receive their bottle of perfume due to the airmail restrictions. The club gives options for members to ship to a US address so that the full package can be sent but no way to sent it directly overseas. The easy way would have been, since this is a special version of the set for W Club members only, to make the set available with or without the perfume, or with a special coupon to get the fragrance from a shop in the members country.

This is a description of the offer: “To celebrate the exclusive launch of the Jason Wu Fragrance on NET-A-PORTER, designer Jason Wu created a limited-edition scented doll wearing a replica of the point d'esprit tulle gown embroidered with Swarovski crystals and worn by Lily Aldridge, the face of the Jason Wu Fragrance campaign, to the 2017 CFDA Awards.  Only available through NET-A-PORTER, the NET-A-PORTER x Jason Wu doll will be sold with a 3oz Jason Wu fragrance starting on Wednesday, August 15th, 2018”.

And Jason Wu said: “I love the idea of immersing my worlds: doll design, fashion, and beauty. All three worlds are authentic to me and I’m excited to integrate all of my loves into one project with one of my greatest partners, NET-A-PORTER.” Exclusively created just for this special offer, the packaging perfectly matches with the fragrance and is even scented with the delicate scent of the Jason Wu fragrance. Which could be cause for worry to those suffer from allergies.

NET-A-PORTER EXCLUSIVE VERSION(applies to the brunette version only):

  • Price is $380 for doll & 3oz fragrance (fragrance and doll not sold separately);
  • The plan was that the offer was expected to go live on NET-A-PORTER.com on Wednesday, August 15th, 2018, 7:00 am ET as a target, however we now know this never happened (the original date of release was supposed to be the 13th and it changed, often retailers don’t follow their release plans exactly). Please check their site at your discretion, since previous offers have gone up early as well.
  • There will be severe shipping limitations due to the presence of the fragrance in the set, as fragrance is considered flammable goods, which cannot be shipped internationally via air. THIS OFFER IS RESTRICTED TO MOST US AND CANADIAN LOCATIONS, as well as select other locations where NAP has physical warehouses (i.e., the UK and Hong Kong). Unfortunately, NET-A-PORTER cannot ship this set internationally; exact shipping information will be available on the site once the offer goes live.

 Here is the blurb and photos from the Net-A-Porter website. There does not seem to be a special packaging with both perfume and doll, but separate boxes for each:

“Part of a collaboration with renowned perfumer Frank Voelkl, Jason Wu's Eau de Parfum is created to evoke a sense of nostalgia - it's expertly blended with Jasmine Sambac which reminds the designer of his childhood memories in Taiwan, where he would pick the flowers from a neighbor's stone wall. The blend of fresh Pink Pepper and Fig top notes are balanced by a woody silky Musk base. Fans of integrity toys will love the included doll, dressed in a replica of the crystal-embellished gown worn by Lily Aldridge to the 2017 CFDA Awards. The limited-edition figure is beautifully detailed with hand-applied eyelashes and carefully rooted glossy hair.

- Doll comes with miniature platform sandals, crystal earrings and perfume bottle
- Can be attached to Perspex stand
- Packaging is scented with Jason Wu fragrance”

Shipping limitations will apply for international Club members: Unfortunately, due to postal restrictions, please be aware that it will not be possible to ship a package that contains fragrance to an international destination using any air mail methods. For this reason, when the time comes for the W Club right-to-buy lottery to occur in September, The club will offer international members different options:

1- Ship the full set to a US/Canadian Address via UPS ground only;

2- Forfeit the perfume (but still pay full price of the offer), in which case we will be able to ship worldwide using regular shipping methods;

3- Have the doll shipped to you directly (as per point 2 above) and have the fragrance shipped separately to a US/Canadian address of your choice via UPS Ground.

Below are some photos of Lily Aldridge and Jason Wu from the CFDA 2017 Awards., plus the main perfume campaign image.
