For some time now I’ve been meaning to write about this beautiful and exquisit OOAK doll collection but never managed to do so. My dear friend Nunzio Carbone from the Fashion Doll Agency has teamed up with long time friend and fellow collector Patrizio Cipriano to create the Acid Bubble Capsule Collection for the PFDF 2016.
The slender silhouettes of FDA dolls have always inspired Patrizio who dreamed of create for them evening dress and emphasize their femininity. He was given carte blanche to create this Capsule Collection .
The Acid Bubble Collection consists of five unique pieces. The style of the dresses is 50s retro, with very geometric shapes and bright colors. Each dress becomes an elegant look, with a very stylized figure, anatomical and graphic that highlights dolls femininity. The choice of shapes and fabrics recall the work of visionary creators as Thierry Mugler, particularly in 1987 with its strong looks, liberated, sensual and seductive, Gianfranco Ferré & Claude Montana.
Nunzio complete the collection by creating the makeup, hairstyle and shoes to every look. Following the inspiration of Patrizio, makeups are also very retro 30s, with very high and thin eyebrows, pure inspiration from icons like Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo. The extravagant and voluminous hairstyles bring a modern touch, respecting the traditional codes of retro haircuts. Deconstructed boots also break with the oldie style and give to the whole a more contemporary touch.
