Now You Can Dress Like a Barbie In Balmain

It makes sense that Barbie would wear Balmain. A style icon since the Eisenhower administration, she’s known to take some fashion risks befitting the French house. But the two are now betting that humans will want to dress in Barbie-inspired Balmain dresses, sweats, and bags. Creative Director Olivier Rousteing has created a genderless collection for adults, inspired by Barbie and Ken, that speaks not only to their tastes, but also to Rousteing’s childhood memories and hopes for the futures. “It’s not only the dream of a designer, it’s a dream of a kid, you know?” he says, adding that as a kid he was told not to play with the dolls. “That I can create a collection with Barbie today shows how the world has changed, and how good it feels to be free with yourself without being judged.” 

Rousteing says he approached this project with two minds: one of a “kid dreaming of Barbie,” and one of a top designer. He took Balmain’s house codes—the Labyrinth monogram designed by Pierre Balmain in the ’70s, the shoulder pads, the oversized gold buttons, even some couture pieces—and incorporated them with Barbie’s visual world to create 50 items of clothing and accessories. In addition to the clothes, the collection is modeled by CGI dolls and three NFTs depicting Barbie and friends in Balmain will be auctioned.
