Barbie Goes Avant-Garde

Rei Kawakubo has been busy collaborating lately.

First, there was last year’s H&M collection. [I managed to pick up a few of those pieces without the line-up.]

Last week, the handbag line she created for the Beatles’ Apple Corps brand finally launched. [I wasn’t crazy about the designs – that’s why you haven’t seen a more recent post in this space.]

And now, she’s given Barbie an avant-garde edge.

Part of the newly launched Jingle Flowers range, the infamous doll is among the first to don the pattern of “flowers making sweet noise”, in an asymmetrical, sleeveless dress.

The collection features the flower print on a wide range of products including chairs, sneakers and sweaters.
