Get to know Venus
The inspiration behind our brand new doll
Our designers are constantly inspired by a myriad of cultures, sub-cultures, and styles from all around the world. Nellie and Victor were influenced by the Steampunk sub-culture, Alex by the So-Cal lifestyle, and April by Easter traditions. Our design team wanted to bring you a doll perfect for Springtime, one that encapsulates the vibes of chilling out in a blossom-studded meadow or petting a fluffy white lamb. Therefore, our team looked toward the fashion of tranquil hippy and bohemian traditions.
Inspired by Bohemian cultures and hippy style, Venus is a doll that radiates peace and values freedom. Bohemianism is defined by a commitment to a non-conventional lifestyle, free from the rigidity of modernity and responsibility. Bohemians are wanderers and adventurers who roam untethered by the trappings of work or wealth. They focus on musical, artistic, literary, and spiritual pursuits above all else. Venus invites all to relax into a more bohemian way of life.
Named after the goddess of love, Venus spreads affection all around her and is surrounded by a calm atmosphere. Produced from the foam of the sea, this goddess is uniquely at one with nature, this idea is at the center of the doll’s design. Her golden hair reflects the shining rays of the sun and her dress is adorned with tributes to the flora that decorates the forest.
Venus wears a feather in her hair to symbolize her love of freedom and peace, she would love to fly like a bird anywhere in the world. A white feather is usually associated with the white dove, a bird that universally represents unity and hope. Venus holds these principles close to her heart. The feather sits upon the doll’s glowing locks that give her a goddess-like appearance when they flutter and stream in the gentle breeze.
The doll wears an entirely neutral color palette, mainly consisting of cream and white tones. These colors are relaxing to the eye and have a serene effect. Her lace dress is feminine and pays homage to bohemian cultures with its repeating traditional lace appliques. The flowers at the neckline and leaf motif running throughout the material show she is part of the environment she lives within.
At her empire line and around her upper arm she wears extra lace accessories. Venus loves to express her spirituality by dancing in the woods, these accessories move and sway beautifully along with her movements.
Venus also has her very own crochet hammock and lace decorated pillows. These accessories show her love of relaxing in the woodland’s lap. Every day she naps in the forest and follows the rhythms of nature, taking a rest whenever she feels, only to be woken up by birdsong or dewdrops falling from the trees.
