Blythe is no stranger to the world of fashion. Her 00s reincarnation started through an ad campaign for Parco department stores in Japan. A few years ago she was the model for the McQ for Target campaign. Right now, she's the muse of Bottega Veneta.
For their Spring/Summer 2014 line, they've had some beautifully accurate Blythe mannequins made, promoted the venture with an editorial spread in Spur (which you can see here and here), and they're taking the mannequins around the world. One of the cool things about living in a city like London is that it's the type of place to be chosen for such fun stuff. So this afternoon, I hopped on a bus over to Chelsea and walked up Sloane Street and snapped away.
The Bottega Veneta staff that I spoke with post-snaps were very friendly and let me know the mannequins would be there til the middle of next week (a check on their site says the 19th). So if you're in the area and want to check out the giant Blythe girls, head over soon!
