The back-story behind this line of dolls is the world of the fashion industry. 
Bloggers, designers, fashion stylists, hair and makeup artists, as well as photographers and many other creative artists meet to set the trends and dictate what the next big looks will be. Tulabelle True and her friends know how to navigate The Industry like no other and you are invited to follow their adventures!
That's a wide open field for the designers at Integrity. My first impression of this collection is that the male dolls are fabulous. Their hair, clothes and accessories are very attractive. 

Thinking of the history of male dolls that IT has released, they have all been pretty great except for Chip, Poppy's boyfriend, and Perry the Vampire in all his incarnations. 




The female dolls are just average. I'm not quite sure about Style Savior's huge fur coat.  It  would need to be worn by a doll with a sleeker hairstyle. 

What I really love are the accessories. Tate Tanaka's bag with the footprints is adorable. His entire fashion is really great. The iPads and iPhones are essential. Tulabelle's neckpiece and clutch bag are very cute. If I were adding 12" dolls to my collection, I'd definitely get the two male dolls.

  2. I don't collect hommes so won't comment but love Tate's duffle bag. I agree with you, the girls aren't special enough to make me want to get any. I never warmed to the Tulabelle sculpt. But the other new sculpt s aren't great either.Liu Liu hair reminds me of the LA girl fashionista Barbie that I bought for $10. The fashions are dull mostly black ( would have liked to see some colour. Zine queen is wearing a coat that would look nice on the queen of England who's 90. The accessories are fun.

  3. Two words come to mind when looking at this collection: boring and drab. Oh, and also hilariously overpriced for what look like playline dolls. And that Liu Liu looks like Barbie Fashionistas #44 Tall Lea Leather & Ruffles. With the exception of the Convention Industry doll, I am very disappointed in this line.

  4. I always thought, except for a few misses, IT has done some great Hommes. I was lucky to get CI's In the House Tenzin Dahklink. Take I <3 MLP Sonic Boom out of his outfit, redress him, and he is one handsome man. Sometimes the men are more fun than the women!!! Oh, and for a hoot- check out Vogue- Comme Des Garcon's 2017 fashion show. What the well dressed homeless fashionistas will be wearing. Glimpse into the future???? Hmmmm........

  6. I try not to collect male dolls too much, but I couldn't resist Tate- he is perfection. I also got Liu Liu- couldn't resist the hair style or color, although I wish they'd been a little more daring with her outfit. Nothing a few temporary tattoos won't fix I guess :D
