La poupée AW11

This autumn, indulge your childish whims and fancies as you play the fragile doll. Wander through your playhouse clothed in blouses trimmed with ruffles, ribbons, and lace, full skirts of velvet and satin layered over peeking petticoats and cinched at the waist with wide sashes, and opaque embroidered tights. Tread on rich carpets in dainty ballet flats tied with silk ribbons and topped with frothy lace socks. Coyly cover hands with the softest kidskin and crochet gloves in cream and pastel pink. Wide eyes fringed with thick, full lashes, cheeks with a blushing glow, and sugary pink lips, all haloed by neat curls add to this quality of porcelain fragility.
