Glam Dress Silkstone inspiration

So yesterday evening when I posted the picture of the new Glam Dress Silkstone I thought the inspiration for this dress could be some of the Dior flower dresses.

But this morning a dear friend of mine told me that the dress looks a lot like some of the Giambattista Valli Spring / Summer 2015 Couture dresses. And I think he is right.

The black belt, the ribbon in the hair, the shoes, the silhouette and the flowers it’s all there.

We also saw a sketch of this doll in the recent video about the new Barbie body shapes.

Wouldn’t it be great when the other 2 looks in this picture will also be Silkies from this years collection.

Glam Dress Silkstone

A French Barbie site released the first image from a new Silkstone called Glam Dress.

Classic Black Dress

The Barbie Collection finally added Classic Black Dress Barbie to the shop.

I love the official pictures. It looks like she is in a photo studio.

Her is her official description:

The little black dress is a staple in any sophisticated wardrobe. Barbie® doll wears this classic with an air of modern chic, featuring a dramatic deep “V” neckline and feminine bows at the shoulders. Tall boots and a signature ponytail complete the oh-so-fabulous look. For the first time ever, the 2016 BFMC series features a posable Silkstone® body, for endless posing possibilities.

She will go on sale at 2/1/2016 for the amazing price of $40.00

I have to admit that I have a lot of fun redressing this lady.

I think I have to order a second one ;-)

Robert Best Sketches

So today Mattel launched their new Fashionistas dolls with 3 new body types. Petite, Tall and Curvy. They look great and you can read a great article about this new collection of dolls at the Time.com

I hope these dolls will do very well. But for me as a collector there was something more exciting. In a video on Mattel.com there is an interview with Robert best about this new collection of dolls. And we get a look into his office.

And look at all these gorgeous sketches on the wall !!! Are these dolls he is working on.

At the top left I think we see the sketch for the new Trench Coat Barbie.

And how gorgeous are these 3 sketches.

They would be perfect for the Sikstone collection.

The black suit with the leopard hat is my favorite.

We already saw this one at the new Japanese stationary.

And look at these sketches.

Sketches3

They look very young and fashionable. Maybe this is a new collector line. Or some sketches for some fab new fashions.

As my friend Marco mentioned the sketches looks a lot like the fashions we see at BarbieStyle Instagram. And I think he is right.

Her name is Moonlight Mist and she is a ooak Silkstone doll designed by Robert Best for the National Barbie Doll Convention in the USA in 2009.

s-l1600-1

According to the listing the doll was auctioned off in 2009 for $24,000.00

It will be very interesting to see for how much this doll will sell on Ebay. Especially when now it’s not for charity.
