Dutch Fashion Doll World

A Dutch Barbie collector in Holland

Undercover Angel

yesterday Integrity Toys released the images from the 1st W Club Exclusive doll of the 2020 W Club membership year and what’s even better? It’s not just a single doll, it’s a mini gift set!

Her name is Poppy Parker in Undercover Angel

Last year, David Buttry let us know that Poppy Parker, post-modeling career, continued her TV career, cast in one of the biggest TV hits from the 70s!

The Story:
As the love affair between Poppy Parker and her fans grew well into the 1970s, Ms. Parker’s career naturally morphed from teenage model to TV superstar! Her incredible screen presence naturally made her a household name worldwide, as she became the queen of prime time TV!
As the decade moved along, our star was cast in a new, revolutionary, totally glamorous, prime time drama that would become one of those breakthrough career defining moments, making her a household name everywhere on Earth! Seen here wearing two of the most memorable looks of the series, Poppy Parker broke new boundaries as an “Undercover Angel” and her powerful performance left an undeniable mark on television history, one that her adoring fans still rave about some 50 years later!

The inspiration for this great doll is very clear. Her looks, the story line, it just has to be Farrah Fawcett in Charlie’s Angels.

I really hope this will be the beginning of a new mini series.

the price of this giftset is $175 plus shipping

Barbie Signature Mattel 75th Anniversary dolls

This morning the a new Mattel doll popped up on Amazon and I have to say I kinda like them… A LOT. They are the Barbie Signature Mattel 75th Anniversary dolls.

I love the monochromatic gown and it is very on trend. We saw many of these huge romantic gowns in recent catwalk shows like Giambattista Valli and Valentino. And I love how they are inspired by the vintage Mattel logo in the details of the gown. For me this give the gown a Victor and Rolf vibe.

I also love the face and the hairstyle. It is all very fresh. I don’t know who the designer is but it would not surprise me if these are done by Carlyle Nuera. The convention dolls he designed this year would be a perfect fit with these 2 ladies.

The only thing I am not a fan of is the box these ladies come in.

I don’t understand the choice of the Art Deco style graphic that everybody can buy on Shutterstock. https://www.shutterstock.com/nl/image-vector/vector-geometric-frame-art-deco-style-436513732.

It makes the dolls almost look like Christmas dolls. So these two beauties definitely need to get deboxes.

British Vogue & Barbie

To celebrate the start of a new season and a renewed energy that champions unbridled creativity, Vogue assembled an all-female team to reimagine how Barbie will live in her hyper-stylised Dreamhouse now. Ranging from newly graduated fashion designers through to accomplished stylists and interior designers, these women were faced with the unique challenges imposed by the coronavirus pandemic. Yet, as the film illustrates, nothing held them back.

Siddal by Kingdom Doll

Kingdom Doll is releasing a new doll today and her name is Siddal.

Siddal is named after Elizabeth Siddal, who was best known as an artists model for the Pre Raphaelite Brotherhood . Siddal was also an important and influential artist and poet in her own right.  A strong modern woman of her time!

In an East meets West fusion, Siddal wears a Kimono inspired gown of imperial silk satin in a richly vibrant indigo hue, lined in berry silk habotai with an open wrap neckline edged in silver lame. A waist cinching belt adds further silver lame accents. The dramatic kimono sleeves are embellished with unique silver celtic dragon embroidery, a first for Kingdom Doll. The resin shoes are created with a sparkly silver to mimic the lame texture of her belt and neckline. Finally her jewellery is a sterling silver necklace featuring sterling silver tassel details and a clear Swarovski crystal butterfly charm.

Siddal makeup palette is all about drama. Her clear pale sapphire blue eyes are framed with cool toned smokey shadows of charcoal and taupe with pale lilac under her brow, inspired by the Pat McGrath Subliminal Mothership palette. 

A metallic gold inner corner highlight warms up the look creating a subtle sparkle. Siddal also features applied upper and lower eyelashes. Her lips are a deep black cherry gloss, whilst her nails are finished with a french manicure. 

The handmade custom blended silver grey wig is Kingdom Doll’s interpretation of contemporary Geisha, featuring an updo with exaggeratedly long sections of hair falling from either side of Siddal’s temples.

Siddal also comes with an extra set of hands which are in a “hands on the hip” pose, silver sparkle dressing hands, a clear topped doll stand with black base and a handmade doll box in pale blue with the embossed Kingdom Doll logo.

Siddal has been a House Model for quite some time now. What I always love because it shows you how versatile she is is.

Siddal is limited to 50 pieces worldwide. Her price is $795 USD plus shipping. If you are interested in this doll you have to send an email today at 6pm UK TIME to info@kingdomdoll.com
