Lucie et son dressing de créateurs

corolle.jpgI read about the “Lucie et son dressing de créateurs” Corolle doll on Milk Magazine’s news letter and it is so fabulously anti-credit crunch that it deserves a post.

Lucie is not any Corolle doll; she comes with a designer wardrobe that even most grown-ups would dream of. Five of some of the most exclusive children’s fashion design labels: Hartford, Charabia, Bellerose, Finger in the Nose and Essentiel have designed outfits especially for this little fashionista.

Obviously this doll’s clothes and accessories do not come wrapped in plastic bags. No, Lucie has her own customised traveling wardrobe.

There are only 50 limited edition Lucies and they are being sold exclusively at the Bon Marché, Paris’ most exclusive department store. All of this exclusivity comes with a price tag: at €350 a doll, Lucie is every credit cruncher’s nightmare; but if you feel like resisting the current trend, I reckon Lucie could just be the perfect stocking filler….

I’m not sure what to think of this!
It reminds me of the dolls Marianne and France I saw in Windsor Castle. They were given to the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret Rose in 1938 to mark the State Visit to France by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.
They come with a 360-piece trousseau in which they could find everything the fashionable girl-about-town could desire – dresses by Worth, Lanvin and Rochas; Cartier jewellery; cases by Vuitton and handbags by Hermès; and Lancôme and Guerlain perfume. Not to mention their own miniature car (1,5 meters long)!
Amazing and insane at the same time.

Wow! 350 Euro for 1 doll….! I’m only wishing I could have her wardrobe for the same price. 🙂

perhaps, this is one of those times when it is good to be a Mother of boys only!

Poor Princesses! They are given these amazing dolls and aren’t even allowed to play with them. It’s really not fun being a princess after all!

I was thinking I’d get this for my Lucie, until I saw the price tag! Tant pis!
