Angelic Pretty, a popular sweet lolita brand, is going to be releasing a new print soon called “Dreamy Baby Room”. Here are some pictures of it.
It will be available in yellow, sax blue, pink, and black. The main pieces for this print are one-piece, jumperskirt, skirt, and salopette. Accessories are a half-bonnet, headbow, tights, crew-length socks, and a bunny backpack.
My first thoughts on this print were instant dislike. Although there are definitely some more childish prints that I am fond of, prints that channel toddlers are not among those that I like. That is simply a personal preference. I am also not fond of Angelic Pretty’s Dreamy Dollhouse or Toy Parade, or Metamorphose’s Lovely Alphabets.
Speaking of Dreamy Dollhouse and Toy Parade, Dreamy Baby Room looks extremely similar to both. I understand that the designers want to incorporate the characters they have already made, such as Lyrical Bunny, the cute elephant and rocking horse, into more prints, and that makes sense. However, when you incorporate the same characters, the same toys (balls, blocks, etc.) at the border of the print, and scattered all around the upper part of the print, it looks far too similar. I think that the similarity of this print to some of AP’s other prints are a negative aspect of this design.
Furthermore, the designs of the dresses themselves are quite simple. Although I have only seen full pictures of the one-piece, it’s very simple. It’s got custom lace along the hem featuring carousel horses, which, although is a custom-designed lace, is featured on many AP prints and is nothing new or spectacular. It features a yoke on the bodice and two small lines of lace running down. Over all, I think the design is far too simple, especially when paired with such an unoriginal print.
Finally, as I mentioned in the beginning, I personally dislike such childish prints. That is a personal preference, however, one I will mention. With all of the secrets regarding sweet lolita looking like ageplay recently, it seems that many people are not interested in this type of print. For me, having a print that is literally based off of a nursery is just too much.
Also, while the tights are a refreshing addition to this line, I think that the bonnet and short socks are a bad choice. The print is already extremely childish, and a bonnet and short socks will definitely add to the infantile look that this print will bring to a coordinate.
So, in conclusion, my opinion on this print is that it is not one of Angelic Pretty’s best prints. I was so enthralled when they designed Eternal Rose Bouquet, as that made an instant dream dress for me, but this print has disappointed me a bit. However, I will continue to support Angelic Pretty as my favorite brand, despite this release, which I feel will be a miss.
Please keep in mind that the thoughts expressed above were simply my opinion. If you happen to disagree with me and you love this print, then rock it! Feel free to share your opinions below. ♥
