The Bergdorf Goodman Jason Wu 10th anniversary dolls sell out just as expected

The next chapter in the saga that is the Jason Wu 10th anniversary doll collection unfolded pretty much like the previous one, with the dolls selling out fast and doll collectors frustrated about getting them. Bergdorf Goodman had two dolls dressed in outfits picked from Jason’s collections, while we still don’t know which retailer will have the last one. Let’s check them out.

Much better than her Net-A-Porter sister, this doll has a gorgeous gown but unfortunately that’s it. No jewellery, no bag, which one would expect in a $225 doll. The shoes have great detail at the heels and the top of the gown is embroidered net with nice detailing even though it’s quite different from the original. I love her make up and hairstyle. The veil did not translate well in doll size though. Easily the best anniversary doll so far.

And the real life gown? Jason Wu Fall Winter 2011 Prêt À Porter.. This collection was his "baroque meets sportswear" one, a line inspired by a Robert Polidori book on the 25-year restoration of Versailles. Bergdorf Goodman Luchia's look came from this collection. Diane Kruger wore this gown at the Met Gala of 2011.

I’m not crazy about this outfit. Wide pants do not look good on dolls with this kind of fabric and the turban looks awful. No jewellery again but there’s a bag at least. Nice shoes with lovely detail. No close up of the doll but she’s nice and I love the short sleek hairstyle. She would look great in a tuxedo.

Let’s remember the real life outfit this came from. Jason Wu Spring Summer 2011 .Prêt À Porter This Is the collection that inspired the New Close-Ups Fashion Royalty Collection In 2011. We see Anja Rubik wearing a striped sweater and slacks here.

There’s a small paragraph about Jason at each doll listing

 About Jason Wu:After interning for Narciso Rodriguez, designer Jason Wu launched his own collection in 2006. He immediately landed on the radar of fashion's elite, who lauded his clean and sophisticated aesthetic. New York-based Jason Wu, a native of Taipei who has also lived in Vancouver and Paris, creates refined American sportswear while playfully mixing Old World and modern elements with dashes of color and feminine combinations. He won the 2010 Swarovski Award for Women's Wear at the CFDA Fashion Awards.

The final release for Jem And The Holograms from Integrity Toys: Sophisticated Lady gift set

People were expecting this for quite a while and here it is. The final gift set release of the JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS Collection: Sophisticated Lady. Dressed here in a fan favorite, JERRICA BENTON goes from business woman by day to the glamorous JEM with just a touch of her magical JEMSTAR earrings. Alain and Vaughn took extra time designing the embroidery on JEM's jacket and it gives her suit a look that is totally inspired by the hit 80's cartoon. JERRICA looks like she means business in a never produced before 80's business outfit.

2017 W Club members got a priority opportunity to purchase this set before the general public this Monday, June 12th. Tuesday is the day when the remaining dolls are made available to the public through IT. They will be made available in the JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS™ category in the IT Direct Shopping cart starting onTuesday, June 13th, 2017 at 6:00 PM Eastern time.

So that's it people. The last Jem And The Holograms release. I was not collecting this line, but if I was, I'd be over the moon. The whole series was incredible in detail and crafting and they were the best dolls that could be released for this franchise. The dolls, outfits and accessories were a tour de force and showcased how much the designers, Alain and Vaugh, loved the line and working on it. Congratulations to them and Integrity Toys for such a great run. The W Club email finished with a cryptic hint: "it might not be the end yet". What can that mean? We'll be here to find out.

Wonder Woman Barbie Collector dolls available to order!

Mattel is pushing ahead with their Wonder Woman releases, right before the premiere of the film next week. After the playline releases, the collector dolls are now available to order - but on backorder till June 1st. That either proves that the available ones are already snapped up or that the company will be late in releasing them but did not want to lose the momentum that the film will create. I really like them and will try to order them all. Let's see them all - description from the Barbie Collector website. The dolls are all Silver Label, i.e. 25,000 or less dolls.

Integrity Toys 2016 unveil: Jem And The Holograms On-Stage Collection

The third line unveiled this month from Integrity Toys is Jem And The Holograms On-Stage collection. All dolls are sold directly from Integrity Toys; one is ready to ship now while three more are available to pre-order now. I liked Riot a lot but he should have had a guitar (or whatever instrument he plays) with him to complete the look. If you're doing a gift set, do it properly. And the price surely can cover that. All the dolls will have special packaging/carry case that turns into a dressing room with wardrobe, make up table and acrylic stool. Also, if W Club members pre-order all four dolls together, they get $25 off.
