Barbie Gets A Designer MakeoverJan 25, 2010 @ 1:00 pm
Mattel and the CFDA have teamed up to launch a special initiative called Barbie Basics, a new line that features mini designer accessories kits to accompany an LBD-clad Barbie doll. Twelve designers, including Justin Giunta, Tory Burch and Rachel Roy, were commissioned to adorn each Barbie with their essential accessories. Giunta festooned his Barbie with a stacked pearl and chain necklace while Burch styled her doll with a feathered necklace and a beaded clutch. “I love something sparkling for evening,” Burch told WWD. “Of course, add a bold necklace.” The special edition dolls will be auctioned on eBay starting this Thursday through February 7.
