Integrity Toys Luxe Life 2018 Convention: the W Club luncheon

Saturday always begins with the W Club luncheon. Club members got to see the Lilith Blair centerpiece doll (and many the chance to buy her) and received her twin sister Eden Blair doll, both designed by Jessy Ayala.
Carol Roth hosted a Q & A panel on stage with the Integrity Toys design team, where Club members' questions were answered.

Am I the only one that not going gaga every time the twins make their ubiquitous appearance either as a club exclusive or a convention doll? Probably so. I love the brows on this one, combined with the tan skin tone they make her look fab.

First W Club doll for 2018 is unveiled - and it’s twins!

The W Club year officially begun in March for 2018, so everything has been coming out later than usual. That includes the W Club dolls, exclusively made for its members, a total of five for the year. The first one was teased a few days ago to members, then was revealed to be the Nu Face twins, Lilith and Eden. They are designed, like the main Nu Face line, by Jessy Ayala, with a press/newsprint theme. I’m not that crazy about them. The fashions look half done and the doll’s are ok but don’t scream “buy me” to me. They are quite different in style both to the Nu Face main line and the upgrade Rayna, which is weird but not really a problem. Don’t ask dealers, these are W Club exclusives, so if you’re not a member, wait till they start arriving early next year to get them on the secondary market. They are not a giftset but sold individually, so any member can buy either one or both twins. At $135.00 per doll, that’s $270 for both, quite a jump from the $200.00 that last year’s twin set (see what I did there?), which was more elaborate, cost.

Lilith is easily the better of the twins, with her dark hair, pale skin and red lips. If her eye make up was more interesting, I might have caved in. I already have Rock Wedding Lilith and Smoke And Mirrors Lilith, so this one barely compares.

I have a blonde Eden, Elements Of Surprise, so I’m not in a hurry to get another one. The freckles are too cutesy for my liking and her outfit looks like Barbie turned goth. I love the t-shirt though.

Integrity Toys Summer 2017 reveal: Nu Face Heirloom collection

The W Club members were eagerly waiting for Saturday the 24th of June for the promised unveil of the two main Integrity Toys collections, Nu Face and Fashion Royalty. After the success of the Reckless collection, the company let the talented Jesse Ayala work his magic again for the new one. And he did not disappoint.
Named "The Heirloom Collection" it is dedicated to all of those little items we own in our personal closets that make our looks so special. Each doll in this series comes with one special item that is true and dear to her. Maybe it's a special pair of earrings, a delicate brush or a fabulous mirror, but it's definitely cherished for generation after generation. Jesse said he was in a romantic mood, with a haunted mansion as his setting, imagining the Nu Face ladies had used it as a set for their fashion shoot. Luckily he did not present a goth rehash but instead his vision is that of a very modern, updated and - dare I say - minimal Victorian aesthetic. It also looks like a successor to Reckless, evolving it forward. The body is Nu Face 3.0 which means no waist articulation and pop out joints.

The dolls are more expensive this year. There was the usual,talk of raised costs in China and paying for quality and fully accessorised dressed dolls. In the case it is backed by a brilliant collection, which will help sales despite the price raise. So run to the authorized dealers as some dolls are already sold out - the W Club members having had 48 hours advance warning. You will find them here: http://www.integritytoys.com/authorized-dealers/

Imogen is a fully articulated 12.5 inch fashion doll with fully rooted hair. Her look is composed of a bouffant satin skirt over a 3/4 sleeved brocade bodysuit, which sports an elaborate lacing detail at the back. She completes this look with a metallic-finish purse, short lacy gloves and over-sized chunky boots. Her screening also features soft freckles. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

IMG_0583.JPG

Gorgeous version of Imogen. With her red hair amd pale skin and freckles she is very different from all her previous incarnations. The outfit looks nice as well, with the contrasting textures and colours. The brooch is her heirloom, used in a variety of ways: as a hair or clothing ornament. I have a very limited budget this year so she was the one to cut from my want list. I hope to get her in the future though. Her screening is based on the Going Public Eugenia one, which is a firm favourite not only of Jesse but of most Integrity Toys collectors. 

IMG_0582.JPG

Oh, do not let the flat looking boots deceive you. Her feet are the usual high heeled ones.  They are using a design that looks flat but accommodates the high heel.

Erin Salston is a 12.5 inch fully articulated fashion doll with rooted hair. Erin is wearing the a designer jacket, matched with a shiny lurex skirt with a black net overlay. Erin completes the look with high-heeled lace-up booties, mesh stockings and her mini-case. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

IMG_0588.JPG

For me, this is the most uninteresting doll of the collection, and this says a lot. She's very beautiful in the Latino skin tone, with a very detailed outfit and lovely accessories (heirloom mini case anyone? Spider ring!) but she is no match for the rest. I love the bishop sleeves.

Rayna is a 12.5 inch articulated doll with fully rooted hair. Rayna wears a fitted knitted turtleneck bodysuit with oversized drop-shoulder sleeves under a pair of daringly low, ultra-fitted motocross pants. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

IMG_0592.JPG

Rauna is in Latino skin tone here, with dark hair, which brings her origins to the fore. Strangely enough she did not click with me. It could be the pInk lipstick, which, combine with the grey blue pants and tassel earrings give an 80s vibe. Her heirloom, the cuff/ring, is gorgeous, although I would have like it more oriental looking. It is a heirloom after all. Doesn't she remind you of Gigi or Bella Hadid?

 Nadja Rhymes is a 12.5 articulated doll with fully rooted hair. She wears a lingerie set composed of a delicately constructed black shrug embelished in black petals over her bustier and panties. It also includes shoes, stockings jewelry and her vintage chrome handheld mirror. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

IMG_0599.JPG

Nadja is the smash hit of the collection - second time in a row. Her silver hair, gorgeous face and sexy outfit combine into perfection. I was lucky to preorder her but the dealers who were accepting preorders are sold out. Maybe you can get her from those opening store today. Good luck!  She is a close up doll, meaning a lingerie basic edition, hence the lower price. She does have a ring and a mirror, which is great. I love the shrug!

Ayumi comes complete with her mother's cameo ring and heirloom silver plated hand-held brush and leather shoes. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

IMG_0603.JPG

Lovely version of Ayumi, but not a match to her Reckless one. Again a close up doll, but she has a cameo ring and the brush (heirloom, Jesse said it has real bristles). Her screening was inspired by Ginza Kyori. Her stockings have a fake patterned leather style that looks gorgeous.

IMG_0610.JPG

Another twin gift set. Is it me or are they becoming too ubiquitous? I love bits and pieces from each ensemble but the accessories not so much. Compared to their Reckless versions, here the sisters are tame and casual. Still gorgeous though. They will be available through a lottery from IT DIRECT later this year.  Jesse said that the zipper on Lilith's top is functional and can go all the way down, making it look like a dress. Note that in the poll that followed the presentation, the twins were overwhelmingly  the most popular, Nadia second with less than half the votes, while Ayumi was the least popular choice. As far as how they pick which dolls will be available through lotteries, like the twins now, they said it is quite often a matter of getting a doll to the public in a lower cost than doing it the usual way - I.e through dealers - would entail.

So what do you think about the Heirloom collection? Love it or not? Better than Reckless? Which dolls are you getting? Let me know in the comments. And you should also read the brilliant review Marcela wrote in Kotori Couture for the line, elaborating on so many issues beyond mere fashion commentary. Oh, and she also gives you all,the inspiration behind each outfit- so much Louis Vuitton!
