Fashion East’s Matty Bovan Celebrates Barbie Collaboration

BIRTHDAY GIRL: Up-and-coming British designer Matty Bovan has been focusing his efforts to dressing a very special celebrity client for her birthday celebration this month: Barbie.
Mattel tapped the young designer to create outfits for the famous doll, as well as an accompanying film, to mark the 58th anniversary of the launch of Barbie.
Bovan unveiled the results of the collaboration at Mayfair’s The Women’s Space, to an intimate crowd of family and friends which included the designers Stephen Jones, Charles Jeffrey and Ryan Lo.
Bovan painted Barbie’s face with the bright, glitter eye shadows he favors for himself and dressed her in pieces from his spring 2017 collection, from chunky pink knitted sweaters, to crystal-embellished tasseled skirts and a velvet green printed dress.
“I’ve loved Barbie since childhood because for me it provided a blank canvas to be creative, plus Barbie is such a recognizable brand, so it was an immediate yes for me when Mattel got in touch,” Bovan said.
Guests gathered around the Barbies all smiles, taking pictures on their phones. Jones couldn’t resist taking a white rose and placing it upside down on one of the dolls’ heads as a hat. “Do you approve?” he asked Bovan.

Jeremy Scott Creates a Collector’s Edition Barbie for Moschino

It’s official: Barbie now has a better wardrobe than us!

Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott has long considered Barbie a muse. She’s influenced him so much that the designer even dedicated his entire spring 2015 Moschino collection to Barbie. Talk about bubble-gum-pink everything—he went so far as to send a model down the runway on roller skates doing her best Roller Barbie. And now, his love for the flaxen-haired icon has gone a step further. Welcome, the Moschino Barbie:

moschino-barbie-1

“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,” said Scott in a statement. “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-summer 2015 collection.”

moschino-february2014-barbie-collection

A Barbie look from the Moschino spring 2015 collection.

As such, Barbie is totally tricked out in Moschino gear. She’s wearing a slogan T-shirt, logo trimmed mesh knits, and a quilted leather bomber jacket with a matching pencil skirt. And let’s talk about the accessories! She’s wearing a leather cap, mini quilted cross body bag and—naturally, a Moschino shopping bag. Wait, we’re not done. She’s also donning mismatched earrings, several layered necklaces, sunglasses, a leather motorcycle bag, a backpack, and the unmistakable a logo chain belt. Hello, Barbie, can we read your closet?

The collector’s edition Moschino Barbie doll will be available for $ 150, exclusively at Net-a-Porter, starting on November 9. It will be part of a larger capsule collection, featuring real-life-human-size clothing and accessories.

Real-Life Barbie Shoes Are Coming Your Way This Fall

Quirky-cool shoe designer Sophia Webster’s latest collection is sure to please both the current you and the version circa 1995—she’s celebrating all things Barbie! The nine-piece collection has six styles for adults, three for children, and includes sneakers, heels, and flat sandals. Pieces will be up on her website and ready for shopping next week.

“I love that this concept strikes a balance between dreams and reality,” she told British Vogue. “Getting to be a part of her embracing flats for the first time made it extra exciting.” The shoe news she’s referring to is the summer reveal that Barbie’s ankles would now be articulated, allowing her to switch between heels and flats (finally!).

Webster called the range a “dream project” and, honestly, we should’ve known it was coming. She hinted at the news to fashion reporters not too long ago with a sly pledge of love to Barbie.

While there’s no pricing info, it’s reasonable to expect the items will be similar to her other stuff. The pink winged heel looks like a version of her Chiara, which retails for $ 580.

Happy Birthday, Barbie!

On March 9, Barbie turns 56, and while the brand has come under a lot of criticism over the years, this is a wonderful time to take a step back and really celebrate her many positive contribution to the lives of girls everywhere. As we always say, for the billions of Barbie dolls sold — one every three seconds somewhere in the world, according to Mattel — everyone is unique because every girl (or boy) brings Barbie to life in her own way.

Barbie has always been the catalyst for imagining possibility and for girls to imagine themselves as teenagers and grown ups, empowered by their imaginations and dreams. She may have started as a teenage fashion model, but she’s kept pace with the times, and sometimes led them. In 1985, when the now-classic commercial called “We Girls Can Do Anything. Right, Barbie?” aired, Barbie really embraced her totemic power and was quite literally became the object onto which millions, if not billions, of hopes and dreams were projected. And it wasn’t just girls. Tony Award-winning costume designer Gregg Barnes was inspired by Barbie to follow his career path and ultimately designed costumes for a Barbie stage show. We hear so many wonderful stories about Barbie and her positive role in girls’ lives. Most of them are not dramatic but are rather cherished memories of playing with friends or alone and allowing imaginations to take flight.

So, it always breaks my heart when I hear Barbie criticized by adults for her proportions or body image or what she purportedly “represents.” It always makes me laugh, too, because the people who do this are unwittingly continuing to project onto Barbie, just like kids do. Only this time, it’s their own unresolved adult issues. Trust me, after decades working in the toy business and with kids, I can assure you that an inert lump of polyvinyl chloride (mostly) is incapable of teaching or modeling anything. If Barbie “does” anything, it’s because someone’s imagination has made her do it as a reflection of themselves at a given time. In other words, no one learns anything from a doll; they learn it from the culture and act it out with the doll. Children repeat in their play what they learn from parents, peers and the media, so if you don’t like what they’re projecting on a toy, it’s time to examine what’s being modeled and what’s being reinforced and internalized as a “truth.”

And criticizing Barbie is its own kind of sexism. It assumes that girls and women are neither smart enough nor sophisticated enough to embrace and overcome issues and are victims of an 11-and-three-quarter-inch doll. Ridiculous. After all, when were any negative perceptions of men ever blamed on the action figures they played with? Really. And one final thing, just to put Barbie in perspective, please think of her from a 4-year-old’s perspective. Barbie is shaped the way she is because when you’re 4 and don’t yet have fully developed fine motor skills, Barbie’s clothes are a tube that can be slid onto the hunk of plastic, and there’s a little ledge you can rest the dress on while you snap it in the back. If that’s not reductio ad absurdum, I don’t know what is, but it nonetheless is true. And Barbie is supposed to be pretty. Kids like pretty. Kids just don’t fantasize about being sick or ugly or “real” from an adult perspective, and any doll that has tried to reflect that has failed. Sometimes when I play with kids, I realize that they have a much greater capacity for abstract thought (imagination) than adults. They don’t want or need a doll that looks exactly like them; they want a doll that resonates with their hearts.

So, on Barbie’s birthday, how about thinking about all the positive contributions Barbie has made? For nearly three generations, she has been an anchor for positive social development, a catalyst for exploring the possible, for locating oneself in a culture and giving expression to a developing personality. Look at all the Barbie’s that Mattel has produced. Have you ever seen one from Prom Queen to Paleontologist that doesn’t have some kind of empowering message? No.

While Barbie, and the image of Barbie, may become fixed for each person as they pass into different life stages, she is brand new for each little girl. I was actually a little skeptical about the newest line Barbie in Princess Power at first. Why, I wondered, did Barbie need to become a superhero? And then I observed little girls of the right age interact with her. What became immediately obvious was that there had never been a superhero for preschool girls. (Most female superheroes have really been created as male fantasies previously, anyway.) Superhero play is so empowering for all kids, and here was a superhero with direct relevance with issues related to social interaction and conflict resolution at their level of understanding and experience. It’s a long way from the teenager from Willows, Wisconsin, but it’s also a wonderful reflection of how much culture and childhood has evolved in 56 years.

Shakespeare was talking about Cleopatra when he wrote “age cannot wither, nor custom stale, her infinite variety,” but he could have been talking about Barbie. Barbie is — and will always be because she can’t be anything else — unfixed in a role or image for everyone and every time. Her life, her “reality” and her magic, rest in the hearts and imaginations of every individual who plays with her. And that’s something worth celebrating.

John Oliver Blasts UK’s Labour Party For Targeting Women Voters With ‘Barbie Bus’

Pet the pretty princess pony!

With a U.K. election in May, political parties are battling over female voters. The Conservative Party has been accused of generally ignoring women voters, giving the Labour Party an opportunity to gain their support, which they should be able to do easily, as long as they don’t decide to campaign for women voters with a patronizing pink bus. They did? Oh …

On Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver took the Labour Party to task for the embarrassing political maneuver, and the equally embarrassing attempts to cover up the political fallout that ensued.

“It is a little insulting that you’re trying to appeal to women adult voters the same way that Mattel attempts to appeal to 8-year-olds,” said Oliver. “And at least Barbie’s pink bus had the good sense to unfold into a sweet hot tub and party den combo.”

Oliver offered the Labour Party a commercial of his own that he believes will fix the political damage done by what’s being called the “Barbie bus.”

Why, yes, it does involve a pretty princess pony!

“Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” airs Sunday at 11:00 p.m. ET on HBO.
