Moschino’s New Barbie Doll and Capsule Collection

Moschino’s creative director Jeremy Scott has been bringing a new level of whimsy to the runway, especially stemming from his 2015 spring/summer collection. He brought Barbie to life on the runway, drawing inspiration from the iconic doll’s past looks, and transforming them into a spectacular catwalk display with models styled to embody her.

And now, Scott has done just the opposite. The effect is just as fun-spirited and forward-thinking, but is really scaled down. Under his creative expertise, Moschino has teamed up with Mattel, and is creating a capsule collection for Barbie dolls, with life-sized replicas for women as well, that will debut on Nov. 9.

“I wanted 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,” said Scott, in an interview with WWD. “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.”

This idea is also what makes Barbie so iconic. She was made to encompass a wide variety of professions to reach out to people all around the world, but at the same time is always fashionable and ready to go. This is an idea designers use often on the runway, to show that their woman, or muse, can look fashionable for any event. But Scott took this concept and pushed it farther than anyone else before him. He created Barbie for the large stage, and models for the small.

And so Jeremy Scott ran off to play dress up. He gave Barbie a total wardrobe revamp, with a fun Moschino T-shirt on one and a quilted faux leather bomber jacket and pencil skirt on the other. Both Barbie-models were also adorned with teeny pairs of mesh knitwear to round out their edgy, fresh outfits. But, of course, Scott couldn’t let his mini-muses out of sight without a barrage of cool accessories. And so, he created a wide variety of bags, jewelry, and sunglasses. A motorcycle bag, a backpack, gold chains, earrings, and plenty of faux leather will polish off the looks, adding the finishing touches to exactly what the Moschino woman would want… If she were a foot tall!

In the Moschino Barbie capsule collection, upon its Nov. 9 release, we can expect to see real-life versions of Barbie’s favorite garments (reminiscent of American Girl dolls with matching outfits for girls?), as well as two exclusive Moschino Barbie T-shirts. The T-shirts will run for $225, while a leather bag will go for $1,595. The Barbie doll will be sold for $150, and all of this will be available on Net-A-Porter.com.
