Meet Anouk

So finally the factory and I worked hard to create Anouk exactly as I had envisaged her. Her inspiration, Caprice, is clearly recognisable and identifiable, but there is enough Anouk to make her a new entity entirely.
She has a beautifully curvaceous body, slightly shorter than Barbie, a smaller bust, and larger hips. That said, she can share many of Barbie's clothes, if you are prepared to wiggle the clothes on patiently over her larger derrière! She has a self assured expression, from the firm set of her jaw to her charmingly refined and retrousse nose.
Her vinyl is soft, translucent and has a fragrance of Vanilla. She will be available in four hair shades. There is a sun tanned version and a black Anouk. She will also have two hairstyles, one long, and one short. She will be produced in a very limited edition of only 300 dolls. I may do more lines in the future.
In your hands she really is everything a vintage doll should be; intentionally naive face paint, hairstyles and articulation. Anouk is finally born, and she is pleased to meet you. :-)
Anouk will be available with four hair shades: Champagne Blond, Ash Blond Brunette and Titian.

She will have two hairstyles: A short bob and a long wavy style with front ponytail tied with a small ribbon.

Anouk's packaging allows her to be displayed at the same time. It is typical of  doll packaging in the 1960s.

Beautiful Black and suntanned versions of Anouk.

Titian and Ash Blond

Anouk in a more sophisticated mood. The Black doll on the right is a prototype that will not be among the production dolls.

The dolls below are pre-production samples I had made to test out potential hairstyles. Unfortunately none of them will be made in the production run of 300 dolls. But I thought you would still enjoy seeing them.
