IT 2017 – Fashion Fairytale – The Industry Style Lab

 

The Style Lab Collection this year was a The Industry Collection, and not a Color Infusion one as it had been since the first Style Lab back in 2012. There were some Salesroom Exclusive Color Infusion dolls sold during the Convention, but IT never sent us any official photos or info on them. The dolls I have seen so far are an AA Romain, A Redhead Declan, A brunette Jaeme Costas an AA Male doll whose facemold I didn’t recognize, and a Jillian Monroe that apparently came with the surprise Grab Bag. I don’t want to post pictures without permission, but if any of you have these dolls and would like to help me improve this post, please let me know and I’ll post your doll photos here with due credits of course!

 

Well, on to the Style Lab itself. Despite the line change, the way dolls and fashions are sold didn’t change, so dolls and outfits were sold separately as always. The theme this time around was Alice in Wonderland, again a favorite fantasy book of mine. It was written by the mathematician Charles Lutwidge, under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, in the 1860’s, and it’s still one of the most popular fantasy books nowadays! The inspiration for the collection seems to have come from the two recent Disney Movies, “Alice in Wonderland” and “Through The Looking Glass”, both featuring Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Johnny Depp as the Hatter. Let’s take a look at the dolls, fashions and their inspirations!

 

First up is our bored heroine Alice!

This is hands down my favorite outfit from the whole Style Lab! Tulabelle here stands for Alice and I was worried that they would get too close to the original blue dress, as they’ve done before with “Curiouser and Curiouser” Alice from the 2010 IFDC, or that they would go for the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2016 interpretation of it, but instead, they released a “Goth Meets Folk” fashion. I love the results.

I’m not a fan of Tulabelle’s 2.0 Sculpt. I miss the first one and I’d love to see a 1.0 Tulabelle in 12 inch scale at some point. But IMO she’s prettier than “You Better Werk”, Tulabelle, that was released in last year’s “Supermodel” Convention.

I’ll leave you with her close up and move on to the next doll and fashion combo in the line.

And the next doll and fashion combo is…

In every Style Lab Collection there’s a “Runway turned Street Style” moment. Binx Barone modelling the outfit “Heartache” represents that moment. The big fur wrap in Saint Laurent, and had been seen lately on the streets, worn by Rihanna.

The shape and color of the fur make it easy to guess the character Binx stands for: The Queen of Hearts. The over the top fur fits the equally over the top Queen to a T, but I confess the top and pants combo took away some of the magic.

I didn’t like the doll herself. Binx is a facemold I didn’t warm up too since her first release.

I feel that the fur here stands for Ayumi’s head gear. You take it away, and Binx doesn’t stand out. I’ll leave you with the only photo we got without the wrap, and move on to the next doll and fashion.

Poppy makes her first appearance in the Style Lab collection, in a pale skin/pink lips combo, that along with her all white fashion stands for The White Queen, played by Anne Hathaway in the Alice films. The similarities are easy to see.

I’d like her fashion to be more like Tulabelle’s and less Mid-Century Futuristic. The 60’s and 70’s weren’t kind on my country in any way. Especially the late 60’s. This style does nothing for me.

I still like the Convention Collection Poppies more than this one. Let’s move on to the next doll and fashion?

Liu Liu Ling represents the March Hare, one of my favorite characters from “Alice In Wonderland” along with the Hatter. This is my second favorite outfit from the Style Lab Collection. I love the delicate Tulle skirt, the sleeveless button down and I liek the jacket, but I’d like it more if it was a biker jacket instead.  I just think the bow tie could be more delicate. I also love the Hare mask! Such a fun touch!

I like Liu Liu better than her first incarnation, although I still think, like Stratos Bacalis mentioned in his own post about the Style Lab, that they are very similar. What made me like her is that she looks like Winter, the creepy nanny and cult member played by Billie Lourd in the current season of American Horror Story. Do you agree?

Well, on to the next doll and fashion! Here, taking The Fashion Doll Chronicles as a guideline again,  I’ll take a detour from the Official email, and I’ll post one of the Male dolls along with the Female.

Poppy Parker makes her second appearance, accompanied by Milo Montez, as the Twins Tweedledee and Tweedledum. It’s easy to identify them as such by the stripes in their outfits, which also appear in the Disney Movies:

I like it that their outfits share the same fabrics. Poppy’s skirt and socks are really nice! The “Clueless” shirt is a nice touch, and also pays homage to an icon movie of the 90’s.

Milo’s outfit is really nice too. I like his track pants and arm warmers, and his sleeveless jacket is very cool too. I’d love if him (or both of them) came with suspenders, like the movie Twins.

All in all, though I like the fashions, I didn’t like either doll. Like Stratos, I’m tired of pink lips. What I dislike in Milo is the haircut mostly.  Well, back to the propper email order!

If Tulabelle as Alice didn’t do anything for me as a doll, this one is amazing! Tulabelle makes her second appearance as the Caterpillar, and she comes with a Hookah!

I love her make up and I think she rocks the new skintone! This is the doll that made me like Tulabelle 2.0 sculpt for the first time! Like Stratos mentioned, the print comes straight from Emilio Pucci, and I agree with him when he says it’s the perfect match for the psychadelic Caterpillar:

The only thing I don’t care for is the hot pink part of her outfit. I’d have loved it in any other color (except purple). On to the next doll!

We finally get to The Hatter! Tate Tanaka is the 12 inch version of the most nonsensical character of all time! Like Stratos, I also think Tate is one of the best dolls in this Collection. My favorite nude doll is still the “Caterpillar” Tullabelle, and my favorite outfits are “I’m Curious” and “Just a Second!”, but the Tate is the nicest doll and outfit combo indeed! He has enough of the vibe Johnny Depp brought to the character without looking like a copy.

His outfit follows the same line. It has the vibe, but doesn’t look like a copy. It has a very Comme Des Garçons vibe IMO.

On to the next doll, which, for me, has one of the weakest outfits.

Cabot Clark represents the lover of The Queen of Hearts. His outfit is nothing to write home about. It’s neither Street nor catwalk. It’s not that close to the movie character either.

I’ll post his close-up and move on to the last character in this Collection.

The Cheshire Cat closes the Wonderland Collection, but I feel saddened by how it was interpreted. I love the cat, and I don’t think the doll and the outfit relate nicely to it. The outfit is boring, except for the grinning backpack, but I wish the doll was grinning too.

To actually close the Collection, IT released two accessory packs. Entirely Bonkers and Eat Me! I love both of them! Let’s take a look!

I love the yellow sneakers, tablet, phone and watch!

 

 

All in all, the Style Lab Collection was an uneven one. In general, I like the outfits more than the dolls. I hope to get some of the outfits and maybe even a doll or two in the future. What about you?

 

As always, I hope you like this post! We’ll start covering the events in the next posts, so stay tuned!

 

Xoxo,

Marcela.
