Doll's Eye View: London Summer 2017 Trends

In selecting fashions for the Doll's Eye View reports, we look for items we feel will translate best for 1/6 scale. Unfortunately much of what the girls saw on the London catwalk this season had too many ruffles, too much frou-frou or was too big, too loose or too.....ordinary. Fashion is about change. We've seen skinny silhouettes for a long time, so don't be surprise to see wider silhouettes begin to replace them. And yes, it will take a while for our eyes to adjust In the meantime, my dolls understand a trip to London is a trip to London and so with that, they were instructed to find something (anything) to make this trip worthwhile.

Who's Line Is It Anyway

Certain trends we saw in New York continue right over the Atlantic. Stripes of all shapes and types is one of them.

I'm With HER.....
Think of this as the "Hillary effect." Like her or not, the first female Democratic party nominee to run for president of the United States is impacting fashion trends! Whether it's deliberate or a subliminal suggestion, once again, fashion is waking up to see to power of pants! Expect to see lots of pants for next spring and summer. Dolly may not be overly willing to give up the leggings, so consider making her a pair of slim pants instead. Or...go all out with a looser trouser.

Prints of Wales

We love the subtle, almost silver glow to these prints. Animal prints are there but less "in your face," while florals take on that "south of the border" flavor. Consider using more than one print in a single look. Also..if you must put ruffles or flounces on your doll...think south of the border with a slim dress or skirt given a bouncy gathered, fishtail.

What's Your Point
Another carry-over from New York, assymetrical hems, dresses or tops with one shoulder, handkerchief hems are a strong trend for next summer. Here, we've chosen a classic flared silhouette for late night formal affairs.

From here we move over to Milan, where the selection must-have styles is larger. Stay tuned!!!!
