Fashion label Bottega Veneta is working with Blythe for their Spring and Summer 2014 collections, and have created a life-size Blythes to model their clothes! The Spring collection was featured within the SPUR fashion magazine (Jan. 23rd 2014), plus there is also a fabulous short promo video...press HERE to watch it...as a preview here are some stills taken from the photo shoot, and the clothes designs themselves:
The two life-size Blythe dolls featured within SPUR were on display at Bottega Veneta Ginza store (Tokyo 2-5-14) between Monday 3rd and 17th of February, at which point they then moved to their Omotesdando store (Tokyo 4-12-10) through to Sunday 2nd March.
The Blythe models returned to Tokyo...not two but THIRTEEN of them are on display within the Shinjuku Isetan store branch of Bottega Veneta...between May 28th through to June 3rd 2014.
There are six models in the main high street shop windows and a further seven within the store on 1F.
There are signs saying "no photos", but everyone was stopping and taking pictures...lots of selfies...and the staff seemed OK and were not stopping anyone!
