Moschino x Barbie Includes A Capsule Collection & Dolls — PHOTOS
Nicki Minaj and Barbie fans the world over are about to be seriously stoked! Moschino's latest Barbie collection launches on November 9 and it includes a capsule clothing collection and a Moschino-branded version of the world's most famous doll. Pretty much everything about this Moschino x Barbie collabo is fabulous and modern. It's also collectible, thanks to the doll.
Moschino's Jeremy Scott is clearly having a moment where dolls are providing a rich source of inspo for him. There's a Moschino x Powderpuff Girls collection coming in 2016 and it indulges every one of your late '90s and early '00s nostalgia whims.
Barbie has been informing Scott's work for a few seasons. It's fun to see Scott put his predilection for bold, "Kapow!" graphic prints aside for a hot minute and go with something a little more timeless but equally as bold. Just like our gal Barbie herself.
Moschino dressed the doll in a leather bomber, message t-shirts, a pencil skirt and loaded her up with accessories. Because of course he did.
Here are all the key points for this round of Barbie vs. Moschino.
1. Barbie Rocks Moschino
The designer told Women's Wear Daily that his goal for this capsule was to "bring all of the Moschino elements to Barbie, as I had done the reverse by bringing all of the Barbie elements to Moschino for the spring 2015 collection." Ah, got it. Last time, it was Moschino rocking Barbie. Now, Barbie is rocking Moschino. Scott called the Mattel doll "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."
You know, he has a point there. Barbie reminds little girls who played with her that anything is possible... even if her measurements were a bit impossible IRL.
2. You Can Twin With Barbie
The capsule collection is eight pieces strong. It will boast adult-sized versions of Barbie's clothes, along with two Moschino x Barbie tees, which retail for $225, and a bag that will set you back by $1,600.
3. Barbie Girl
Want the Moschino Barbie? Like the clothes, she ain't cheap. Her price tag is $150 and you can only get her at Net-a-Porter.
Barbie and Moschino are totally meant for each other.
These mesh capris remind me of Alexander Wang x H&M a little.
Athleisure is also part of the latest Barbie x Moschino collection.
