Mattel Inc. to launch three Barbie-inspired capsule collections
Instead of wishing to be like Barbie, you can now dress like her
We've always been jealous of Barbie's wardrobe back when we were kids… even until now, actually.
The fashion gods have answered our prayers to dress like the peroxide blonde with the impossibly tiny waist as Lord & Taylor, Wildfox and Forever 21 will collaborate with toy manufacturer Mattel Inc. for a real ready-to-wear collection. And yes, this is for grown-ups in our size.
The ready-to-wear collections will be coordinated into three different eras: fifties, eighties and nineties. The 29-piece nineties-inspired collection will be from Forever 21, consisting of sportswear, sleepwear, outerwear, accessories and even cosmetics which will be released in stores and online from September 5.
Meanwhile, Lord & Taylor's eight-piece line of fifties-inspired sleepwear will be available from September 14 and Wildfox's 12-piece range of eighties-inspired designs is the last to go on sale on November 15.
We can't wait to see what the three brands will come up with when the collection is released. We're hoping for the pinks and rainbow colours of our childhood Barbies.
