Barbie is Getting a Coach Makeover - Look at Her Little Handbags!
There comes a day in every doll's life when it's time to trade in her plastic training heels and personalized PVC purses for authentic designer accessories. That's right, ladies and Ken dolls. Barbie is getting a wardrobe makeover—from Coach! Just look at those itty-bitty bucket bags.
Even though Barbz is no newbie to designer duds—she's worn everything from Calvin Klein to The Blonds in her 50-something-year history—this will be the first time Barbie's mini-wears are actually produced in-house alongside her collaborator's big-people clothes, instead of at Mattel's design studio.
Coach Collector Barbie ($95 at barbiecollector.com) is slated to hit shelves this August and will wear a classic trench with a suede skirt, which is said to feature the very same turn-locks used on giant-sized (read: human-sized) Coach handbags. As for accessories? We know she'll be outfitted in sunnies and shoes from the brand's summer 2013 collection. The bag, however, remains a mystery.
Keep an eye out on Coach's Facebook page over the next few weeks as the brand hosts a contest to see which pint-sized carryall the fashionista picks. Of the four above, which one are you hoping for? Let us know your fave in the comments!
