Barbie Unveils Collaboration with Charlotte OlympiaSep 06, 2016
British luxury shoe and accessories brand, Charlotte Olympia, is delighted to present the Charlotte Olympia Barbie® doll alongside a capsule collection of shoes and clutch bags to celebrate the Barbie-inspired collaboration.
Inspired by old Hollywood glamour and the brand's feminine design aesthetic, this Barbie® mirrors the 1959 original look and is purrrfectly dolled up wearing a two-piece leopard-print outfit accented with signature red platform pumps and the classic red Bogart leather handbag with matching red gloves. Scarlet lipstick and a perfectly painted mani-pedi complete the look, which is finished with her hair set in retro waves. Never far from her accessories, she is surrounded by a selection of Charlotte Olympia's most recognisable designs as well as the brand's mascot, 'Bruce' the leopard, holding a Charlotte Olympia shopping tote.
The box also includes the iconic Kitty flats, Eve platform sandals, the transparent Pandora clutch box, the Banana bag,the Web logo fascinator, gold spider web earrings, ivory cat-eye sunglasses and a Charlotte Olympia shoebox complete with dust bag. This is a glamorous design for the adult collector.
The soft line capsule collection features Barbie Girl shoes nestled within pink Marabou feathers standing tall on a block Perspex heel and signature island platform. Pomeline is a peep-toe mesh sandal decorated with a porn-porn cluster of multicoloured Barbie® shoes. Pretty in Pink Kitty flats are dressed up with retro sunglasses and pouty lips embroidered onto black and leopard print velvet uppers and are also available in lncy sizes for little girls.
The collection also boasts two standout clutches including Barbie Vanina, an all-pink leather clutch box with a gold and hand-painted enamel Barbie® logo clasp and Barbie World, a beautiful blush Perspex clutch box with magnetic miniature accessories imagined from Barbie's fabulous dressing room.
