Deluxe Fashion Closet by Tonner – What so Deluxe about it?

If my memory serves me right, Tonner have released 2 Tyler fashion closets (one ordinary, one deluxe) and 1 Matt fashion closet in early 2000s.  There are several more for other doll series, such as Effanbee, which I could not remember very clear now.

About this “so-called” Deluxe Fashion Closet, well, the outlook is very different from the pervious ones – simplicity and more butch….but wait!!!  Why there is an over-sized fringe hanging outside?  It totally does not go with that simplicity outline and macho look.  And, what about the inside?  Unfortunately, I must say that it is very disappointed….same old, same old. 

I don’t know what so “deluxe” about it…except the price is – US249.99!!!  I wish they could come up with more contemporary design ideas!

How About a More Contemporary Wardrobe Like These?

Although this one is already more contemporary looking than the previous releases, I would like to see doll wardrobes which could truly reflect the real contemporary life style similar as the pictures below.
