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 Met Gala Moschino Barbie sold out really fast!

It was only fitting that Mattel would (finally) release a Met Gala Barbie, even more fitting that it would be done for the Camp: Notes on Fashion exhibition AND designed by Moschino (and Linda Kyaw from Mattel)! The doll is perfect for the occasion, even though I cannot help thinking what Bob Mackie would have done with this theme. Unfortunately the doll sold out a few hours after appearing in the Met Museum shop, her 500 pieces are all gone. With a price of $75.00, it was only natural that it would sell out. There were two versions, a blonde and an AA. See the photos below, along with the description and details from the museum shop.

Barbie_Met_Gala_80049365_01.jpg

The most Moschino Barbie® Doll ever! Made by Mattel exclusively for The Metropolitan Museum of Art in a limited edition of 500, the Moschino Barbie is a creative collaboration between the Italian luxury brand and Mattel's spirited icon of style.

This collectible doll wears a super-sweet, super-fabulous ensemble. The outfit reimagines a look from Jeremy Scott’s 2015 spring/summer couture collection for Moschino, in which all the designs were inspired by Mattel's Barbie.

Think exaggerated. Think extravagant. Think over-the-top. Think camp—the subject of The Costume Institute's spring 2019 show, Camp: Notes on Fashion. Mashing up concepts from the past with looks from today, this eye-opening style offers a nudge and a wink to those in the know.

Includes earrings, purse, shoes, sunglasses, shawl, dress, doll stand, and Certificate of Authenticity.

Integrity Toys Luxe Life 2018 Convention: the highly anticipated Menswear Collection Launch did not live up to the hype.

Friday afternoon at the convention continued with more shopping and workshops, but many convention guests (and many more not attending the convention) were eagerly anticipating the Menswear Collection Launch Event and Party. The new Hommes body and line have been in the pipeline for many years (five if I’m not mistaken) so everyone that collected the Male Integrity Toys dolls were holding their breath. The importance was such that the reveal had  replaced the very popular Friday night bazaar and masquerade ball.

Unfortunately, even though guests got to hear about the design and inspiration behind the newest line, named The Monarchs, from Integrity Toys designer Vaughn Sawyers, something was amiss. All attendees received the Undercover Declan Wake Male Doll. More information on the line will be revealed to W Club members by email, and some prototypes were shown on a slideshow, with one also sent by email to Club members that is under strict no-show order. There was no centerpiece for the event, just an empty acrylic base with the new line logo, that was raffled instead. One can imagine how disappointed people were, as they were expecting to be able to purchase a dressed male doll from the new line, as the convention package mentioned. The doll was nowhere to be seen. Because of that mishap, the unveil lasted only a short time and the only information people managed to get out from Vaughn was that attendees would get first dibs on a dressed male doll sometime soon.

Declan Wake™ Fashion Figure

The Monarchs™ Homme Collection

2018 Luxe Life Convention Exclusive

Edition Size: 500 Dolls

IMG_7023.JPG

The doll shown was offered to everyone who attended the launch event for "The Monarchs". The formal introduction to the new line will take place later this winter, with a full reveal of the new storyline, characters and looks.

IMG_7024.JPG

So this is the body that took Integrity Toys five years to redesign. Other than making it skinnier and more defined, I do not see an actual improvement over the old one. No improved articulation, no better neck joint. Cosmetic changes are all nice and well, but real redesign should have made for a better articulated body, with a neck allowing male dolls to move their heads better and make them look more expressive.

IMG_7025.JPG

None of the old, first wave of Hommes will be part of the new lin up: no Pierre, Francisco, Darius or Takeo. Which is a pity to hear, as they are very special and beautiful sculpts. I’m a Declan fan but this looks like his best ever version too much to be considered great. His hairstyle does not help - it looks like some third rate Mediterranean lover boy would sport while out cruising the tourist traps. Easy pass. And no, having a semblance of a penis will not make a doll better. Nice bag though - the big one. The other can simply disappear into the eighties it came from.

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.

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.

  • Long over-sized puffy coat (dark berry color);
  • Satin top with neon colored -digital print art;
  • Dark jean pants with attached neon green leather corset, sileeve wrap detail and pierced sleeve detail;
  • Short "patent leather" boots with glitter detail;
  • Star/moon/third eye jewelry (asymmetric earrings, layered bracelets with stars/moons);

  • Pale violet purse with spike stud detail;

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.

Introducing Modernist Eugenia Perrin-Frost, the newest offering from the Fashion Royalty® Collection by Integrity Toys, as chosen by 2017 W Club members, who voted for her features, from her warm and vibrant skin tone (a first for this character!) to her hair colour. Her fashionable ensemble was designed by Jessy Ayala. Eugenia Perrin-Frost is a 12.5-inch articulated vinyl doll with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. Her ensemble is composed of a pale blue one-piece dress, accessorized with sky-high metallic blue high-heeled boots, a matching purse, jewelry and sunglasses. Doll stand and certificate of authenticity included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.

2018 Wclub_Eugenia_08.jpg

2017 W Club members finally get to see the result of their vote from last year. The doll Is beautiful and elegant, with the right amount of fashion bling to make her a standout. The dress is simple but with an intricate detail at the front. Her accessories are perfect, even though I’d prefer the boots with closed toes. The make up has Going Public vibes (the mouth and general design) combined with Tricks Of The Trade or Spring Forward (eyeshadow) - EDIT: She has the Spectacular screening in different colours. She’s not the smash Vanessa Perrin was when she got the dark skin treatment (Second Skin) but she’s fab. I’m getting her with my membership.

In 2018, Poppy Parker revisits some of the best looks that she’s worn in her modelling career so far, with a twist. The W Club introduces the first entry in the “City Sweetheart” Collection, as designed by David Buttry. Poppy Parker is a 12-inch fully articulated fashion doll with fully rooted hair and handapplied eyelashes. Dressed for a sunny summer day in New York city, Poppy looks as sweet as ever in her delightful, high-color day dress! She comes complete with a purse, jewelry, shoes, bright pink and bejeweled cat-eye glasses and a bottle of her favorite orange flavored soda pop. Doll stand and certificate of authenticity included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.

2018 Wclub_Poppy_12.jpg

I’m not crazy about this year’s upgrade Poppy. The eyes look weird (She has the Reluctant Debutante screening but with applied eyelashes), the hair is blonde (I have too many blonde Poppies), the lipstick too light pink and the dress looks like a variation of the one She’s Arrived had. She has the new high-heeled feet. I love the shoes and the bow details on her bag and bracelet. Easy pass for me.

Face upgrade doll option, marks the debut of the new 2018 collection, as designed by the talented Jessy Ayala of Integrity Toys. Rayna Ahmadi is a 12.5-inch articulated vinyl doll featuring fully rooted hair and handapplied eyelashes. Rayna wears a one-piece denim overall jumpsuit and completes her look with an oversized jewellery set, a colourful bandana, matching denim open-toed high-heels and a unique ice-cream cone shaped purse. Doll stand and certificate of authenticity included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.

This is an amazing Rayna, one of the best ever released. Her face and make up look great, using pink in the right way. She reminds me of the IFDC Rock Me Baby Rayna but enhanced with warm vibrant pink. Her outfit looks amazing - I’m a sucker for late 70s styled jeans. It would have looked even better in a dark blue denim though. Her shoes are awesome, her bag weird and the jewellery good. She’s coming home too.

So, are you joining the W Club this year? If so, which upgrade dolls are you getting, if any? 

  • So, how do you become part of the W Club?

From now until February 27th, 2018, you can qualify for the 2018 W Club by submitting a
registration form and completing your payment. You can start your registration here:

https://www.integritytoys.com/wclubforum/2018clubregstart.html

No registrations will be accepted after February 27th, 2018 at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (New
York time). No exceptions.

  • For how long is your 2018 Club membership valid?

Memberships are valid until the latter of January 1, 2019 or when the 2019 Club membership
registration period begins.

  • As a member, will you be guaranteed every exclusive item from the Club?

Every member in good standing will be guaranteed the right to purchase at least 5 exclusive dolls, which will be offered at various times throughout the Club year, including the 2 Fashion Royalty exclusive dolls (which may include NU. Face), 2 exclusive Poppy Parker dolls, and 1 additional exclusive doll during 2018. Members that added upgrade dolls during registration are guaranteed those upgrade doll(s), as well. There will be other limited items which will be available by lottery or first-come, first-served opportunities. Please note that membership in the W Club does not guarantee access to Integrity Toys’ non-Club exclusive dolls and accessories. None of the dolls available through the Integrity Toys’ authorised dealers can be purchased through the W Club and are not W Club exclusive items.

  • How many 2018 Club memberships can you purchase?

The number of memberships by collector or household is not restricted. However, memberships are non-transferable and cannot be shared.

  • You live outside of the US. May you still become a member?

Yes. Membership is available to residents of all countries worldwide. Please note that all
news releases and information will be released in English only.

  • You would like the Club information sent to you via regular mail; can it be done?

This is an online only Club and all members must have access to a valid email address.

  • What forms of payment are accepted?

All payments are processed through Integrity Toys’ online shopping cart system. They accept
Credit Cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) and PayPal. If you
don’t have a PayPal account or a credit card, you could get a prepaid credit card, as it
makes it easier for you to take advantage of the many offers.

  • How about more information about the purchasing of exclusive W Club dolls?

2018 W Club members are guaranteed the right to purchase the exclusive W Club doll(s) from 2018 only (these dolls are separate from and in addition to the upgrade dolls that you can purchase at registration). The number of W Club exclusive doll(s) produced is based on the number of pre-orders paid. If you do not pre-order the Club doll(s) by the designated cut-off date (there is usually about a week-long ordering window), you forfeit your right to purchase that Club doll through the W Club. Also, Club doll(s) from previous years are NOT available to 2018 members- Club dolls are only available during that specific membership year.

  • How about more information about the Club coupon?

Each W Club membership that you purchase will automatically add a special $25 coupon to your IT Direct Coupon Wallet that can be used towards ANY IT Direct shopping cart purchase of $99 or more online only during the 2018 W Club year. As long as your order is above $99 before shipping and tax, you can apply your coupon towards any order of your choice. Full details and instructions for the $25 coupon will be sent to 2018 W Club Members at a later date, including that a one coupon limit will be allowed per order.
Important exclusion: Coupons cannot be used to purchase additional memberships.
Any memberships bought with coupons will be voided, as the 2018 Club year does not
officially begin until after registration ends.

  • When will you be able to log into the W Club forum?

Once your membership has been processed, you will be emailed the “Welcome to the 2018
W Club” notice. This notice includes information on how to register and be approved for the
members-only forum, contact emails, email information and more. Due to the number of
registrations that are expected to be received at this time, it can take up to a week or more for the welcome notice to be sent out and you should be patient until you are sent the notice.
