New Collections: St. Germaine and La Scala

Inspired by days spent wandering the flea markets off the Porte de Clignancourt donning sparkling pink sunglasses and fiery pink locks, St.Germain is a luxurious collection of soft, romantic pieces invoking La Belle Époque of Paris. The mood and sophistication driving St. Germain is simple, chic and urban European elegance for the doll who knows what she wants in life, and is going to have fun getting it. Layers of glimmering vintage seed beads and pristine semi-precious stones decorate choker length necklaces, colorful Chiclets compliment vintage brass chains and well-choreographed pastels form this pristine and moon collection.

After dark on the other side of the Seine lies St. Germaine's passionate and mysterious sister collection, La Scala, inspired by the "Revue de La Scala" poster by Frenchpainter Jules-Alexandre Grun. With the initial sparks of electricity running throughout the city, Parisian aristocrats and workers alike distracted themselves after dark with coupes of champagne in hand and in full disrespect of the social rules, were carried away by happiness and a complete lack of concern for the future. La Scala represents the beauty and fire of this devilish and enticing Parisian nightlife, with deep reds, oranges and violets, pops of gold and blush, alongside vintage Chanel beads and black moonstone.
