Charlotte Olympia Is Transformed into a Super Chic Barbie Doll
And of course, she gets her own doll-sized kitten flats.
Charlotte Olympia has recently teamed up with Barbie to launch a special collection. The British designer has created a seven-piece capsule featuring clutches and shoes inspired by the legendary doll. In particular, her signature kitty flats receive a leopard print makeover with hot-pink accents. In addition, one of the clutches sports a blush color, and is decorated with Barbie’s miniature beauty products including a lipstick, perfume bottle, as well as mirror.
Along with the playful accessories and footwear, the designer has also landed her very own Barbie doll. The box set comes with a dainty set of doll-sized fashion items, namely a Charlotte Olympia Bogart bag in red, red gloves, as well as a pair of Dolly pumps with gold platforms. On having a Barbie doll modelled after herself, the designer expresses the utmost excitement:
I had so many Barbie dolls as a child — more than any girl ever needed — and I made them outfits and set their hair. My favorite was a special Rio de Janeiro Barbie. She’s still behind my desk in a box now, alongside a glass jar of a thousand Barbie shoes that I bought on eBay a few years ago.
