Moschino and Barbie have joined hands to announce the highly anticipated collector Moschino Barbie doll and an exclusively complementing eight-piece ready to wear Moschino collection.The Italian label has partnered up with Mattel to launch the doll as well as the ready-to-wear collection right in time for the festive season.Creative Director Jeremy Scott announces, “The thing I love most about Barbie, is that she is the ultimate muse, she’s worn every style and design imaginable and at the same time she’s had every possible profession you can dream of. With Moschino having had such a long and successful relationship with Net-A-Porter, it simply wasn’t a question of who to partner with for this.”Jeremy Scott, who has been smitten by Barbie, had centered his spring 2015 collection around her. This time, he has reversed the process by giving Barbie a makeover in true Moschino style. Sporting the label’s signature features, Barbie is dressed in Moschino’s winning pieces like a slogan t-shirt, logo trimmed mesh knitwear and a quilted leather bomber jacket with a matching pencil skirt.The diva-licious doll also carries classic Moschino accessories, including a branded leather cap, mini quilted cross body bag and shopping bag. Her look is finished off with mismatched earrings, layered necklaces, sunglasses, a leather motorcycle bag, a backpack and the unmistakable gold chain belt with Moschino lettering.Barbie as well as Moschino fans can indulge in the ready to wear capsule collection which consists of life-sized versions of some of the same pieces, with the addition of two new Moschino Barbie doll printed t-shirts.Bringing Jeremy’s creative vision to life and retailing for $155, Moschino Barbie doll along with the collection will be available from November 9, 2015 on Moschino.com and Net-A-Porter.com. According to WWD, the price range for the line is $225 for a T-shirt to $1,595 for a leather shoulder bag.
Update – The Moschino Barbie has sold out within an hour of being launched.
