Moschino and Barbie Capsule Collection

04-11-2015   


The major difference between the two ventures, perhaps, is that initially Scott was applying Barbie’s iconic style to Moschino’s clothing, whereas in his latest endeavour, Scott is wanting to transfer typically Moschino elements to Barbie’s wardrobe, such as gold chains, faux leather, and slogan tees.

On November 9th (which is looming very close), in collaboration with Mattel and Net-A-Porter, Moschino will be releasing an exclusive Barbie doll, complete with a doll-sized capsule collection, as well as adult-sized versions of the very same clothes. This eight-piece collection will range in price from $225 for one of the t-shirts, to a slightly heftier $1,595 for a leather handbag. The Barbie doll itself is priced at $150. Both the clothing and the doll will be sold at www.moschino.com and www.net-a-porter.com.

To promote this project, Moschino have launched an advert, in which three children play with the doll and declare their love for it, saying lines such as ‘she’s the most Moschino Barbie ever!’ and ‘I love you, Moschino Barbie!’. This advert is reminiscent of retro Barbie commercials and reminds us that in spite of Barbie’s stylish forays into the fashion industry, she is first and foremost a doll for children that has been loved by many generations and will hopefully continue to be loved by many more.

As a quick reminder, the limited edition Karl Lagerfeld Barbie sold out in one day, so if you want to get your hands on a Moschino Barbie or any of the items from the capsule collection, you better have your computer loaded and your card details at the ready bright and early on November 9th! You won’t want to miss out!
