City Chic Suit Silkstone at GAW
by Dutch Fashion Doll World
This weekend it’s GAW convention in the US. And mattel donated the new Silkstone doll City Chic Suit for the charity raffle.
City Chic Suit will be the new BFMC exclusive for this year.
The doll looks to be inspired by this look from Oscar de la Renta spring 2016 Cruise collection.
Personally I’m not feeling this doll. I think I will skip her. I will have to break with my completist obsession. She has a sweet face, but that polyester suit is so bad. I’m not really a redressed and I’m not good with restyling hair so for me this doll would not add anything to my collection. And it’s not that Mattel can’t make great fashions. If they dressed this lady in this Oscar the la Renta look that they showed recently on the Instagram account from Barbie style I think everybody would have been very happy. I think people that collect Silkstone dolls want high quality dolls. We love fashion and a polyester suit is not fashion.
The Barbie Look dolls that Mattel also donated for the charity raffle look much better. I will def get these for my nieces.
