Net-A-Porter.com Launches Moschino Barbie® and Exclusive Ready-to-Wear Capsule CollectionOct 30, 2015
Moschino and Barbie are thrilled to announce their partnership on the highly anticipated collector Moschino Barbie doll and accompanying exclusive eight-piece ready to wear Moschino collection, both available on NET-A-PORTER.COM from November 9, 2015.
As one of Moschino’s favourite muses, Creative Director Jeremy Scott couldn’t wait to bring all of the brand’s signature features to Barbie, dressing her in Moschino’s hero pieces; a slogan t-shirt, logo trimmed mesh knitwear and a quilted faux leather bomber jacket and pencil skirt. She is adorned with classic Moschino accessories, including a branded faux leather cap, mini quilted cross body bag and shopping bag. Her look is finished off with mismatched earrings, layered necklaces, sunglasses, a leather motorcycle bag, a backpack and the unmistakable gold chain belt with Moschino lettering. The adult ready to wear capsule consists of life-sized versions of some of the same pieces, with the addition of two new Moschino Barbie doll printed t-shirts.
Sarah Rutson, Vice President of Global Buying, NET-A-PORTER.COM says, “We are fans of Moschino’s playful collections and feel that this is such a perfect partnership and pairing with Mattel to create Moschino Barbie exclusively for NET-A-PORTER. The doll, alongside the matching ready to wear Moschino capsule will bring to life Jeremy’s creative vision and is one our customers will enjoy.”
Jeremy Scott, Creative Director at Moschino says, “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 SS15 collection. 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. With Moschino having had such a long and successful relationship with NET-A-PORTER, it simply wasn’t a question of who to partner with for this.”
Kim Culmone, Vice President Global Barbie Design says, "As a long-time friend of the brand, Jeremy Scott is simply the ideal designer to create a Barbie doll that embodies both humor and high fashion. We couldn't love this collaboration more. Barbie on the Moschino runway in Milan or Moschino in Barbie's closet in Malibu - either way it's pure fashion fun and a perfect partnership!"
The collector edition Moschino Barbie® doll will be available for approximately $150 or £100.
