Third W Club doll ready for preorder- Poppy Parker Golden Holiday

W Club members were notified yesterday about the third doll of the five club exclusives for this year. It’s a Christmas doll that will be delivered next year, something that had some people grumbling. In order to be ready for the holidays though, she should have been presented for preorder in the summer, not the most conducive season for Christmas shopping. Let’s see the doll and the Christmas tree accompanying her.

Poppy Parker is a 12-inches tall doll and completely articulated, with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. She comes dressed in a slim-fit, floor length white and gold gown, complimented by long triangular chandelier earrings that match the "pyramid" pattern on her dress. Poppy also comes with open-toe heels, three bracelets, a golden clutch purse and three holiday gift boxes. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

This is a set designed by David Buttry in collaboration with Alain Tremblay, who probably did the dress print, the boxes and the tree. I like the doll (the dress not so much), she reminds me a little of Bergdorf Poppy, if she plucked her eyebrows. I am tempted but my wallet is empty so I probably will not get her. Why are the earrings huge? Even accounting for the exaggeration of everything in the 60s, they still look too big and distracting on her. Interlocking stars made of wire would have looked much more fitting.

You can see the inspiration for the dress in the photograph above. It is from a 1966 French fashion magazine editorial and the description is, in French,  “robe longue recouverte de losanges dorés ( Marc Doelnitz )”, which translates in long dress covered in golden triangles by Marc Doelnitz. Who was Doelnitz? A French actor, costume designer, decorator and producer, friend of Juliette Greco, who apparently dabbled in commercial clothing as well. You can see the blog post I got the photo from here, with the entire editorial and many fashions that would look swell on Poppy and friends.

Just in time for the holidays, a new Gene Marshall doll: It happened on 5th Avenue

JamieSHOW dolls released a new Gene Marshall doll just in time for the holidays, and she looks magnificent. The doll is one of the most beautiful Gene dolls ever, I love her make up and hairstyle. The outfit reminds me a bit of the Silkstone Boater ensemble, it is stylish, elegant and very chic for a shopping spree down 5th Avenue. Below are photos and the doll description and details from JamieShow. Preorder her here. It will ship in mid-January 2017.

Holiday Gene Marshall Doll
"It happened on 5th Ave"
Ltd. Edition 100
Pre Order Shipping Mid January
Note: Shopping Bags pictured are not included.


And what happened you ask?  Just the earliest breath of Spring New York City ever saw!!!  That’s all!!!  Well actually, only a few lucky people in New York City were there to see this particular breath of spring, Gene Marshall modeling a chic spring suit, standing on Fifth Avenue in freezing December weather.   Of course the photo wouldn’t show up in print for months, but they needed the picture right away. Since Gene was back east visiting her parents she was asked and accepted the assignment.  

First assignment was to find a sunny day for the shoot and then a location that wouldn’t look like winter.  Fifth Ave. in the 40s filled the bill and Gene bravely wore the lightweight suit and smiled for the cameras in between cups of hot coffee, with an assistant holding a fur coat standing off camera.  Her being a consummate actress helped with the chattering teeth and forced smile.  The fake world of a Hollywood movie studio was looking pretty good about then. 

Gene’s navy silk suit is trimmed with white and navy piping at the neckline, notched cuffs and peplum.  Full, white sleeves extend to ¾ length, beneath the bell shaped sleeves of the belted jacket.  Black, pearl-trimmed gloves and black and white spectator pumps are the accessories for the extremities, with a crisp white boater and teardrop pearls at the ears topping off this warm weather look!  Gene’s platinum hair is pulled back into a chignon of soft curls and her makeup is based on the blush of spring’s first kiss.
