Limited Edition (also known as LE) is a limited store in the Starplaza that is periodically released every season. The stock is limited, similar to Antidote, Young Hollywood, Runway and Strike a Pose. Limited Edition was the first limited store to be introduced, paving the way for other brands in the Starplaza to begin introducing limited quantities on their clothing. LE is exclusive to Superstar members only, and was released as a way for Superstar members to feel like they were getting more out of their membership. Limited Edition currently has 28 collections since its initial release in Fall 2008. A Decor line of Limited Edition was also introduced on the 8th of March, 2011, which is currently on its 11th collection.
The first collection of LE was released in Fall 2008, and was a very small and limited collection. Currently, the first collection of LE is the rarest to date, due to its very limited stock and very few people who still own the items. In an article posted by Isobel.Stardoll, the first edition of LE was full of sequins, studs, zippers and bold colours. The pink and black theme was described as 'fashions most graphic and energetic colour combination', and this was truly evident in the collection.
The second collection was much larger and featured a Valentine's Day theme, due to its close release to the romantic holiday. It is currently referred to as Valentine or Denim LE, due to its abundance of both themes and styles. The Cupid Dress is the rarest item in this collection and is still a sought after item today.
The third collection was released in the Spring of 2009, and featured many floral patterns. This collection captured the essence of spring, with plenty of warm and flowery colours, and plenty of pinks, yellows, frills and bows. The rarest dress in this collection is known as the Yellow Floral Cut Out Dress.
The fourth collection of LE was full of abstract and bold patterns, including some artistic influence. The exact release date of this release is unknown, but due to Limited Edition being released every season, it can be assumed that this collection was released sometime in the summer of 2009. This collection was very limited, with up to 500 pieces of each dress available. The Balmain inspired Single Shoulder Blue Dress is considered one of the rarest items in this collection, and cost a huge 275 Stardollars to purchase directly from the shop at the time.
The fifth collection of LE was released Winter 2009 and featured very fashionable and high class dresses that are hard to come by today. Each floor was a different colour, going pink, blue, purple and black. The Jolie Frock and Padded Chainlink Dress are considered the rarest pieces from this collection.
The sixth collection of the Limited Edition brand was released sometime in Spring 2010, with no exact release date. It was a very floral and outdoorsy collection, and featured very vibrant pink and red colours in each design. With a total of four floors full of outfits, it was considered quite a large collection. The Lace Sleeve Spring Coat is the rarest piece.
The seventh collection of Limited Edition was released sometime in the summer of 2010, and featured a purple, grey and black colour scheme. The collection received mixed reviews from Stardoll users, but overall sold every piece in its collection. The jacket is considered the rarest piece.
The eighth collection of LE featured plaid as its main pattern, and this was incorporated into many of the clothing designs. It was the only collection to feature the least amount of dresses, but this opened the door for more customisation that enabled users to play around with different combinations of clothes.
The ninth collection of Limited Edition had no exact release date, but it tied in nicely with Valentine's Day and was likely released in February 2011. This collection featured a lot of red and black, including bold lip prints. This is typically referred to as the Love Collection.
The tenth collection was the wildest and craziest collection to date, with bold patterns, flashy fabrics and designs, and crazy combinations of both. The release date for this collection is currently unknown, as the exact date has not been specified, but it was released some time in 2011. It was a wild collection with a plethora of tutus and other crazy clothing. This collection is sometimes compared to Antidote, as it resembles the type of clothing that is typically released through the other limited line.
The eleventh collection of Limited Edition was a beautiful floral collection released some time in 2011, and featured many pastel colours that are typically associated with spring and the outdoors. It was not long before the entire collection had sold out.
The twelfth collection of LE went in an entire different direction to collection eleven, and featured more of a city chic look. It was a lot of glam and high fashion that had not been typically seen in the other collections, and many of the abstract designs of the dresses were a stand out to those looking for bold and out there pieces.
The thirteenth collection of Limited Edition was released in 2012. This collection went back to safer and softer colours, with plenty of pastel and hints of floral elements.
In July 2012, the fourteenth collection of LE was released. Unfortunately, this was a big hit and a miss with Stardoll users, with many considering it to be the worst collection ever released. Many of the designs were plain, and did not have a clear identity. To make things worse, some of the pieces did not sell out entirely. This made some of the clothing more limited, but was still not desirable for users.
The fifteenth collection of LE did not have a specific release date, but it was some time in 2012. Again, this collection did not hit it off with users, as some citing LE as 'missing its identity' and 'losing its sense of direction'. Despite this, one of the rarest Limited Edition items - the Steampunk Platforms - were released in this collection.
The sixteenth collection of Limited Edition was released on the 4th of April, 2013. Many of the items were inspired by Dior, Lanvin, Chanel and other Spring collections, and was therefore considered a huge improvement from the previous collections. Interestingly, the accessories for this collection were released a few days after its initial release.
The seventeenth collection of the Limited Edition brand was released on the 18th of June 2013, and was inspired entirely by Versace. It was overall a very classy collection, and clearly highlighted how exclusive and 'limited edition' the LE brand was supposed to be.
The eighteenth collection was released on the 20th of September, 2013. Swedish users experienced a weird bug before its release, enabling them to purchase some of the items without seeing what they were (as they were invisible). This was fixed once the collection was released, and everyone who purchased an invisible item was given the correct one, according to whichever invisible product they purchased. This particular collection featured many heart and plaid prints, inspired by Versace, Chanel and other designers.
The nineteenth collection of Limited Edition was released on the 24th of January 2014, and was the longest wait for an LE release. A few technical issues occurred before the release, with the announcement coming a lot earlier than expected. Users were waiting for at least two days for the collection to be released in the Starplaza, despite it showing on the front page as normal. The issue was fixed the following day and the store had a successful opening.
The twentieth collection of Limited Edition was released on the 11th of April 2014, and featured clothing from Balmain Spring. It was an elegant collection with an array of dresses and accessories, with mostly pastel colours and soft patterns.
On July 25th 2014, the twenty-first collection of Limited Edition was released. In this edition, a 'Face of LE' competition was announced, allowing the winning user to get their face on the promotional content for the collection. The winner was xXEwelina1996Xx, and her dolls face was plastered on advertisements across the site. This collection was inspired by Diesel Black Gold, Celine Spring, Rodarte and Givenchy.
The twenty-second collection of the LE brand was released October 23rd, 2014, and was named 'LE Glam Rock Fall 14'. The glam rock theme was evident in the designs, with many bold reds paired with jet black pieces. The clothing items in this collection were inspired by Balmain, Saint Laurent, Valentino, Isabel Marant, Judith Leiber, Celine and many more.
The twenty-third collection, released on February 20th 2015, had items inspired by Dolce & Gabbana, Maison Margiela, Balmain, Armani and many more. This collection was the pinnacle of classy, and perfectly showcased how exclusive and limited the pieces were. This release featured a multitude of black and white pieces, with dark greens and creamier colours thrown in to balance the two tones. It was an elegant release and was met with praise from users.
On the 22nd of May 2015, the twenty-fourth collection of Limited Edition was released. Inspired by various fashion designers such as Givenchy, Chanel, Valentino and more, the collection was full of floral, bright and pastel colours, featuring hints of transparency, couture and texture - making it almost perfect for any Spring collection.
The twenty-fifth collection of the Limited Edition brand was released under the name 'LE Americana', on August 14th 2015. The clothing items were inspired by Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Versace and Tommy Hilfiger. This collection was all about American pride, and featured a plethora of stars, stripes, American flags, and the all important red, white and blue colours.
The twenty-sixth collection of LE was released on November 6th, 2015, and includes items inspired by Valentino, Alberta Ferreti and more. The release featured a lot of fabric and dynamic patterns, with each outfit fitting together very well. The dark orange and brown colours perfectly suited the desert backdrop they were displayed against. It took longer than expected for the items to sell out, but it was just in time for the release of the twenty-seventh collection.
The twenty-seventh collection of Limited Edition was released on the 26th of February, 2016. Nearly all the items in this collection are either black or white, and some items were sold out in its first hour of release. Many of the clothing pieces played around with texture, but were also kept very simple to accentuate the shiny look. The collection was minimalist, and featured shiny vinyl pieces and soft fabrics.
The twenty-eigth release, was released on July 5th, 2016. This collection followed a similar pattern to the previous collection, with a multitude of black, white and red pieces with the addition of faux fur and the occasional leopard print. Items from this highly luxurious collection are still available for purchase in the Starplaza.
The twenty-ninth release was released on August 26th, 2016. This collection was on three floors with prices between 25sd - 150sd. Some pieces were inspired by Roberto Cavalli, including few that Beyonce has worn in her Lemoande visuals.The thirtieth collection was released on November 12th, 2016. The collection also was on three floors and the price ranking was between 18SDs- 139SDs. The fastest item to sell out was Balenciaga Inspired Sherling Jacket. The thirty-first collection was released on March 24th, 2017. It was on two floors, with both backgrounds being released as interior. For thrid time in a row, it has featured Denim Jeans inspired by Vetemens.
