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.|

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.
