A Dutch Barbie collector in Holland

Midnight Celebration

Yesterday evening they revealed the convention doll for the National Barbie Convention in the US. This year Artist Creations were asked to design the doll.  I loved the doll they designed for the life auction.

So my expectations for the convention doll was very high. Because of the time difference here in Europe I set my alarm at five this morning. And there she was.

Her name is Midnight Celebration and I love her !!! I think she s one of the best US convention dolls ever. Love her Gown.

And that face is just perfection. I just can’t choose between the CC and the AA variation.

I also love the design from the box.

AC3

It’s so chic. She is the perfect doll for a fabulous New Year’s Eve party.

Luciana Silkstone

Barbie Collector just released the official pictures from the new Silkstone Luciana. And of course I love them !

BDH22_c_M1

Here her official description:

Luciana Barbie® doll turns to classic Italian design in black and golden brocade. The finely tailored jacket features an elegant collar, puffed sleeves and cinched waist. Closed with five sparkling rhinestone buttons, the jacket is worn over a matching, sleeveless dress with mermaid hem. Black lace gloves and booties, rich with golden embroidery, complete this fashion fantasy.

The text mention a black and golden brocade but on the pictures it look more beige and gold.

I think her face is perfection.

as a Silkie fan I see so many gorgeous girls. I love how they are using classic paintings printed on silk in combination with their beading and embroidery skills. This isn’t fashion anymore it’s Haute Couture.

For the Live Auction tomorrow they created this Halloween inspired doll.

Barbie Lagerfeld Doll

So the rumors are true. Mattel is Launching a Limited Edition Barbie Lagerfeld Doll !!!

This article was posted today at the Women’s Wear Daily:

DOLL HOUSE: Karl Lagerfeld’s latest collaboration involves what must be the world’s smallest pair of fingerless gloves. They’re to fit the dainty hands of Barbie Lagerfeld, a limited-edition doll being launched this fall by American toy giant Mattel Inc. and the iconic, Paris-based designer.

Part of the Barbie Collector series, the doll is dressed according to the German couturier’s custom: in a tailored black jacket, a white shirt with a high collar and skinny black jeans. Accessories are key, including a fat necktie, dark sunglasses and black ankle boots.

Commented Kim Culmone, global vice president of Barbie product design: “It’s not everyday that Barbie dresses like the world’s most famous fashion designer.”

The outfit also recalls items in the women’s Karl Lagerfeld collection, hinged on the namesake designer’s graphic, rock ’n’ roll-influenced style.

Additional details about the figurine and its distribution are to be released at a later date. Mattel is marking Barbie’s 55th birthday this year.

And the they showed this amazing Sketch !!!
