"Special Edition Apple White wearing a Bobby Abley ensemble

To celebrate the launch of the Ever After High, a special fashion range has been commissioned, and who better to design it than the young creatives of the Fashion East collective – Ryan Lo, Claire Barrow, Ashley Williams and Bobby Abley, of Fashion East offshoot MAN – whose cartoon-watching days aren't that far behind them? The designers have each created a distinctive bag, while DJ and writer Princess Julia’s watercolour paintings adorn T-shirts.

Ever After High collaborations and dolls go on sale at the Toy Shop a department of Selfridges London tomorrow (18/10/13)"

At this point, I'm not too sure if there will be an actual 'special edition doll line', as most of the sources just talk about tshirts and bags inspired by the dolls and we've only seen previews of Apple's special edition doll, however, the artist who designed the water colour print stated this on her blog: "This week as a new range of dolls from Mattel launched, 'Ever After High' got the London look from Fashion East designers [...] who have designed custom made handbags and looks for the dolls, [...]" makes me think otherwise! 

Either way, it's great to see Mattel is branching out and inspiring more than just doll collectors!

Those watercolour paintings are absolutely hideous.  Was the point to make them look like they were painted by a 5 year old? 

I'm happy they never did any sort of sooper-exclusive doll for whatever store this is for Monster High.

The artist goes by 'Princess Julia'. But yes, there's so much in this line that could be worked with I don't know why they went with unprofessional looking designs :\

Ever After High is all about rich patterns and themes and close-knit colour groups, and these designs all seem to just sort of throw that into the trash.

I actually like the painting. Not sure about the rest.

the paintings look very.. amateur to me. If I look at something and think "yeah I could have painted that" i'm not usually impressed. And i'm pretty sure I could paint that if I got out my watercolours and smooshed them onto paper.

As fr the bags, much as the lemur? Raccoon? bag is adorable, I fail to see how they are in any way EAH themed. They just look like random designer bags. The only thing remotely fairy tale is the smashed mirror and i'm sorry... it looks home made sorta DIY to me.

That plush one though.. how on earth does it open and how do you carry it? There's no strap so do you lug it around by the tail?

you know what WOULD have been cool? Actual human sized proper replicas of the actual doll's handbags! Because they have awesome bags.

So does anyone actually live near Selfridges?  Can someone confirm if they're actually selling special Ever After High dolls?

Goodness knows. It's central london and not somewhere I would tend to go.

I'd assume it's more a sorta... display model that might be auctiioned? I  think they did that with the Barbie dolls that were a similar concept.

http://www.ashadedviewonfashion.com/blog/ever-after-high-party-london this claims each made a doll as well as a handbag? Wha?

Apparently Selfridges has a huge toy section but I already want to boycott and burn it to the ground because the doll section is called "girl's world" and such rampant sexism makes me ANGRY. Why not just call it "dolls" argh.

I agree that the doll may be a one of a kind deal. To look at her....well, I can't imagine that'd make a special doll for the store that looked like that. Nothing about it says EAH. The grandma skirt, boring crown, toddler sweater.....

I don't see a strap on that purse either, but because I'm on a kindle I can zoom in and I think I see a zipper on the back.

Please do not bump up old topics that were created and not been replied to in months. It spams the forum. Thank you!
