Fresh, fresh news for all you Barbie collectors!

2015 barbie news

This is from the Mattel presentation at IDC 2014:

– New partnerships dolls for 2015. The first one is a couple designed by a well known fashion designer that has collaborated in the past with Mattel. The doll will be designed by Robert Best. The designer is still kept a secret. I have a feeling it might be Karl Lagerfeld. :X The dolls are dressed in black. Ken has a black suit and Barbie a black leather dress with black pointed boots.
– Other partnership dolls will follow.
– There will be more celebrities dolls
– New movie dolls
– New Look dools with more faces and…flat feet and shoes!! The theme is Barbie will kick off her heels. They showed a beautiful AA doll with curly hair and blue glasses. Great news for people wanting more sculpts. The metalic theme will also continue.
– They also showed some Barbie Look inspiration photos

I’m so excited about this!!! I feel like Mattel is finnaly listening to us with all this Barbie Look changes. :X Can’t wait to see the new dolls!

First day at the Italian Doll Convention 2014

The 2014 Italian Doll Convention has started! I’m not attending this year but I have someone representing me :D so I’ll keep you up to date with everything that is happening over there. The registration has started at around 11 o’clock and the convention bag is the best one they ever had. I think I’ll be using the bag for my baby. Hehe! How cute will I look with a baby in my arms and a red Barbie bag on my shoulder. :X

The bag is filled with all sorts of goodies. I am especially in love with the mini sushi set created by the wonderful Dani Crea En Rosa and the guys from the Madrid Fashion Doll Show. Also check out the very cute dress pattern created by Paco Alcaide from Fashion Dolls Coleccionistas Madrid. Now all I need is a Silkstone to go with the dress and the sushi plate.

Ballet Wishes Barbie 2014

The new Ballet Wishes Barbie 2014 can be now bought on Target.com. A few days ago I saw just a small image of her and was not impressed. Ok, to be perfectly honest I thought she was a disaster. Why? Because I’m sick of pink ballerinas with a Mackie face! I would love something more edgy, more extravagant. I’ve been told she is the perfect doll for an older child that wants to start a collection and I agree. But then again…pink? :(

Anyway, looking at these HQ images she doesn’t look that bad and for $24.99 she’s a good deal.

Dollsalive TYPOES collection

Isidora is a very talented Greek artist and the master mind behind the Dollsalive creative studio. I have just come across her designs and was instantly mesmerized by her creations.

Her latest collection is called TYPOES and it features lots of great fashions for your dolls.

Here’s what Isidora has to say about her collection:

The name of the collection is a combination of the words “typography“, referring to the prints I used, and “types” as every outfit was meant for a different “type” of doll-woman. Thus the names of the ten outfits: The Mysterious, The cool, The creative, The Natural, The Not-just-cute, The Tough, The Tender, The Smart,The Thinker and The Eclectic. They are casual with just a touch of glamour mostly in the accessories. The themes are inspired by things I love and I am interested in like Native culture, contemporary art, ballet, graphic design, and more. I love leather and I use it very often, not only in shoes and bags but also in clothes.

I must admit I would wear these fashions myself. :)) They are so cool. Check out more of her creations on her Flickr page, Facebook page and buy the fashions on eBay.
