A new Poppy Parker unveiled on David Buttry’s birthday! Gardens Of Versailles exclusive convention 2019 doll

This year is the tenth anniversary of Poppy Parker and all releases of her in 2019 are, by default, considered just that bit more special. So what better date than the birthday of Poppy’s designer, the über-talented David Buttry, to unveil the "Gardens Of Versailles" Poppy Parker™ Convention upgrade doll. What this means for W Club members is that, whether they are able to attend the FW19 convention or not, they get exclusive access to a chance to pre-order and obtain this convention exclusive upgrade doll. There is no set edition size, as the final production quantity will be determined by the total amount of pre-orders received by the deadline.

On the 28th of November 1973, a fashion show unlike any other before or after it, was held at the Palace of Versailles near Paris, supporting a charity for the palace restoration. Five French couturiers (Yves Saint-Laurent, Givenchy, Dior, Ungaro and Cardin) and five American fashion designers (Oscar De La Renta, Anne Klein, Bill Blass, Halston and Steven Burrows) were showing together for the very first time. A who is who of celebrities were attending. The event has a historical place in both French and American fashion, as it greatly influenced both industries for the next decade. There is an excellent book about it, The Battle of Versailles: the night American fashion stumbled into the spotlight and made history, by Pulitzer Prize winner, author and journalist Robin Givhan, plus two documentaries, Versailles ‘73: American Runway Revolution by Deborah Riley Draper, plus Battle at Versailles, by Fritz Mitchell. You can read more about it in this interview of Robin Givhan here and an excerpt here. Also, Ava DuVernay is slated to co-write and direct a film for HBO based on the aforementioned book.

Why all this history lesson? Because this is the story frame of this particular Poppy doll, according to the story details Integrity Toys released. She’s supposedly the most famous model walking the runway at this event. It’s early seventies, so she’s at the end of her career. The dress does not look like the ones you can see if you google photos of the event. Most of the outfits shown were either monochromatic (lots of beige for the opening and black for the finale), with Stephen Burrows rainbow coloured dresses in jersey standing out.

The silhouette and print of the dress are very true to the seventies, looking like something either De La Renta or Bill Blass would design. But there was none like that in the show. The story accompanying the doll mentions a Bartholomew Barrows as the designer Poppy is wearing, clearly referencing Stephen Burrows. The real Burrows mostly did colour blocking designs, using a lot of jersey cut asymmetrically or in geometric shapes, using a lot of “lettuce” curly edged hems. People complaining her dress looks too mature should remember that in 1973 Poppy is mature herself, not a fresh faced ingénue.

My major objection with the dress is the sash. Big, flowing dresses in the early seventies had either a thin belt shaping their waist, in leather or fabric, or a draped narrow basque-like design, with dangling ends on the side, made of the same fabric as the dress. The wide black sash is more emblematic of the eighties. The deep V neckline to the waist is very typical of the era.

The doll is beautiful, with her Sunkissed skin tone (first time for Poppy) and curly hair in a style clearly reminiscent of the famous seventies model Pat Cleveland.

The accessories are nice, although I think only one of the bracelets is original. The straps on the shoes will be hell to fasten. Love that she has two pairs of earrings to choose from.

The price tag is higher than usual for a non-giftset Poppy, but remember that this is the slightly higher price Integrity Toys charges on convention dolls for non attendees. I’m definitely getting her, how about you?

The first W Club doll for 2019 is Midnight Decadence Poppy Parker and it’s a 10th Anniversary Souvenir Doll!

Early June is a bit late to release the 1st W Club Exclusive Doll of the 2019 membership year. But if you remember that last year the first club dolls were unveiled in September, it looks just fine. Yesterday, the club unveiled "Midnight Decadence" Poppy Parker™ 10th Anniversary Souvenir doll, designed by the talented and beloved David Buttry, featuring a special bonus illustration created by David himself to mark this milestone in the brand's history. It was 2009 when the first Poppy Parker dolls were released. Time sure goes by so fast!

A bit surprising for the 10th anniversary souvenir Poppy, don’t you agree? She’s wearing quite an original and avant-garde gown compared to her first released sisters all those years ago. The fabric would not be my first choice, but it’s luxurious and impressive in this styling. David said the sleeves are separate as well, so she can wear the short dress with them. The doll is a twin sister of Welcome To Misty Hollows Poppy, with different shades in her make up and a bow designed just a bit this way as to not look identical to Misty. 

IMG_9689.PNG

The jewellery has been used before in different lines and dolls. I love the monogrammed clutch. The shoes are black fabric cutout pumps, with bows and feathers at the heel. I was expecting a doll styled more in sync to the debut collection, but I think I prefer this one, she’s more dramatic and decadent. Can’t wait to see the rest of the Poppy dolls the year has in store.

The fourth W Club doll is Looks A Plenty! Poppy Parker - 3 dolls in one!

This is the way a new year should start: a beautiful new doll! And when it is actually three dolls combined into one, even better. That’s the case with the fourth W Club doll, announce on the first day of 2019 to Club members. Poppy gets the Adéle treatment: the set consists of one doll plus two additional heads with busts and three different outfits. Of course Poppy only has one sculpt, but the body does have interchangeable feet: it comes with both high heeled and flat feet, to better accommodate all three looks. A completer pack is also offered: for $30.0 one gets two partial bodies (torso, legs and arms) to make the three dolls complete.  It’s a good price for three Poppy dolls: getting both the giftset and the completer set means 229/3=76.33 per doll. Not bad at all. Let’s check out this beautiful set.

  • Three separate Poppy Parker doll heads, each featuring fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes (each comes pre-mounted on its own bust piece).

  • MUSEUM PODIUM STAND INCLUDED WITH EACH GIFT SET:As mentioned in the description above, the gift set includes a museum podium stand that allows you to display not only the complete doll on her telescoping "saddle stand", but also display the other included portraits "museum style", on stylish acrylic podiums. The busts insert on a peg at the top of each podium, creating a showcase for any of your dolls.

IMG_7809.PNG

Look 1:

  • High-contrast, black and white polka dot evening gown, with train on the back;

  • Chunky "jeweled" bracelet and matching oversized earrings;

  • Alternate black "opera" length gloves (with painted on traditional Poppy hands);

  • Black clutch purse;

  • High-heeled shoes;

IMG_7800.PNG

This is my favourite of the three looks, both as doll and outfit. I have a soft spot for red heads. She does remind me of the redhead included in another triple giftset, Mood Changers. This is the evening look, with the upswept hair and the gorgeous polka dot gown and it’s A-line shape. David Buttry confirmed on Instagram that this Poppy’s face is inspired by the screening originally used in Summer Magic Poppy. The dress is a 1964 Balenciaga Haute Couture gown.

Look 2:

  • Black cowl neck sweater with Punchinello patterned pants;

  • Black cat-eye glasses;

  • Bright pink heart shaped enameled brooch (with magnet backing)

  • Pair of red enameled stud earrings;

  • Miniature soda bottle and drinking straw accessory;

  • Black kitten heels;

poppy_parker_looks_PP136_daytime_full.png

Blue hair! This one looks a lot like a colour variant w Club 2018 upgrade doll Soda Pop Poppy - different outfit of course. She even has a soda bottle. Love the harlequin pants and the cowl neck sweater. Now there are three Poppy dolls with fantasy coloured hair - this one (blue), Ciao Poppy (pink) and one of the Mood Changers (lilac). Cannot wait to photograph them all together.

poppy_parker_looks_PP136_daytime_back.png

Look 3:

  • Mauve baby-doll nighty and panty set;

  • Simple bangle bracelet;

  • Pair of stud earrings;

  • Mauve pom pom slipper heels;

poppy_parker_looks_PP136_lingerie_full.png

This is the simplest and most versatile one. I’m not crazy about the lingerie but it is something missing from my collection. The doll is lovely and with the long, flowing hair and relatively softer make up, will be able to wear many different outfits. She does remind me of To The Fair Poppy a bit.

  • Pair of basic Poppy hands with red nail polish;

  • Pair of alternate basic Poppy hands with pink nail polish;

  • Certificate of authenticity.

Integrity Toys Luxe Life Convention 2018: Welcome Doll and Convention Collection

This year the most awaited Integrity Toys event takes place in Portland, on the west coast of the USA. Attendees and organisers travelled far to,reach the convention grounds and the party is just getting started. Social media started buzzing with the first photos from early arrivals yesterday and today, first official day of the event, we get the first full post. 

Convention registration started Wednesday for those arriving early and everyone was welcomed by receiving the "THE LOVE OF LUXE" Veronique doll in their welcome bag, along with a monogrammed acrylic chair accessory.

Item # 91457

The Love Of Luxe

Véronique Perrin® Welcome Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Edition Size: 600

IMG_6949.PNG

If she had different colours in her make up, she’d look great. The outfit is boring and the accessories not anything to write home about. Not a great debut for a luxe themed event.

IMG_6950.PNG

I like the lucite chairs, especially those mimicking Philippe Starck’s Louis Ghost, but I’m not sure about the monogram treatment.

IMG_6951.PNG
IMG_6952.PNG
IMG_6953.PNG

We finally get to see the convention Upgrade doll that was available for pre-order when registration started. "A Fabulous Life" Rayna Ahmadi doll made her appearance and every W Club member, attending or not, could pre-order her last spring.

A Fabulous Life

Rayna Ahmadi™ Convention Upgrade Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Final Edition Size: 1400

IMG_6955.PNG

We had the chance to preorder her based on a sketch. The outfit is a copy of an Alexander McQueen Automn/Winter 2018 outfit:

IMG_6990.JPG
IMG_6991.JPG

Having figured out the outfit from the initial Integrity sketch, I was excited and waited anxiously to see the final result. And while the doll is perfection (black hair, pale skin, red lips, Rayna sculpt, duh) and the execution looks great (draping and proportions seem exquisite), the main element of the dress is not red as in the original. Instead it is a pale violet/beige that makes the outfit flat and boring.

IMG_6956.JPG

Really guys? If it was a matter of possible trouble with copying, just make it another bright colour: emerald green, cobalt blue, saffron yellow. I’m very disappointed with this choice. Other than that, I’m glad I got her, she is the best doll revealed in the convention yet (and that includes the rest of the doll’s in this post).

Next up is the 2018 Convention Collection: Dolls from the Fashion Royalty® Collection were designed by Jason Wu himself (Eugenia, Tatyana, Kyori, Vanessa), the NU. Face™ Collection by Jessy Ayala (Giselle), the East 59th® Collection by Chris Stoeckel (Victoire) and the Poppy Parker™ Collection by David Buttry.

Eugenia Perrin-Frost™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life 

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6959.JPG

I like her face and hair, the outfit not that much. Glad to see convention doll’s with bags for a change. The shoes look like those worn by the Vero given at registration. The ensemble gives off an Yves Saint-Laurent vibe, from the old days. It just need some big gold and enamel cuffs to set it perfectly.

Gilded Oligarch

Tatyana Alexandrova™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6962.JPG

This one also reminds me of older Yves Saint Laurent collections. Ruffles, black and red, ribbons, fishnet stockings, bright make up. Just pile up the bangles and add a gold heart shaped brooch and Yves and Loulou would be proud. This will look great with the red, heart shaped coat from last year.

Giselle Diefendorf™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6966.JPG

And here’s your  basic Optic Verve Agnes clone. In a more youthful look, yes, it’s Giselle after all. I like the doll but not the dress. A beret with a mermaid gown? Not very luxe. And the transparent long skirts in gowns died a few years ago on the Met gala steps. But look at that face. Gorgeous.

Gold Snap

Poppy Parker™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6969.JPG

This is the doll with the most buzz in social media so far in the convention. People are going gaga about her. For me, she’s ok but not better than Rayna or Kyori (my other favourite). Or the other Poppy that was unveiled today (more below). I think the hair colour is wrong for this outfit. But it’s just me. Love the necklace.

Divine Evening

Victoire Roux™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6975.JPG

The new Victoire sculpt makes its second appearance this year. And looks even better in this emerald concoction that reminds me of fashions worn by Gene Marshall. Beautiful doll and lovely gown. Her widow’s peak and skunk striped hair fit her perfectly. She has the new type gloves that look amazing with this kind of fashion. The necklace could be a green version of the one worn by Take The Picture Funny Face doll.

IMG_6976.JPG
IMG_6977.JPG

And finally  the IT Direct Souvenir Shop Exclusives. It has almost become a given for the last few conventions that a few more surprise dolls are unveiled in the salesroom alongside the main collection and this year there are three of them.

Item # 91448

Prosperous Complexity

Kyori Sato™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Salesroom Exclusive

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6978.JPG

What a gorgeous Kyori. Great face and hair and a dress that reminds me of the McQueen copy dress from the Heist convention.

Opulence For The Bold

Vanessa Perrin™ Dressed Doll

Same hairstyle as Kyori but in a fierce Titian red for Vanessa. Vibes of Obsidian Society combined with Cruise Control.

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

Fantastic looking Poppy Parker doll, in ice blue and silver. Hair styling is like Misty Hollows Poppy, while elements of the ensemble bring to mind Out Of Thos World Poppy.  She has a bag (fluffy!) and a suitcase!

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!

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.

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.

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.
