First Look at the Hilary MacMillan x Barbie Collection
“We are excited to finally announce our collaboration with Barbie. The collection, titled “Shades of Pink,” is the ultimate Barbiecore, really tapping into the covetable trend of dopamine dressing. We have reimagined brand staples to take you back to generations past with the ultimate celebration of joyful nostalgia. To me, Barbie was such a staple in my childhood and I wanted to bring the consumer back to those pivotal carefree moments. Barbie is such a feminist icon and we created pieces to empower women and children through the power of pink,” founder and designer Hilary MacMillan tells WWD.
Available up through a size 4X or size 28, we get a 15-piece capsule complete with accessories. The Hilary MacMillan x Barbie collection gives us “vegan, cruelty free and size-inclusive ready-to-wear styles inspired by Barbie through the generations in signature Barbie pink hues.”
Are you excited about this?
No, this is not the first time we have had access to a Barbie capsule collection, but it is one of the first ones that is more contemporary and modern. And we are here for this.
We are also getting a kids’ mini collection with this collaboration, especially if you love matching your child’s look with yours! These matching styles include a Barbie knit cardigan, plaid miniskirt, trench coat and varsity jacket.
You can score something for yourself and the kid!
