A fashion icon for more than 50 years, Barbie got a new style thanks to Coach. American accessories brand teamed up with Mattel to develop the perfect look for the leader of the toy fashion doll market. Based on Coach’s real life spring/summer 2013 collection, their new Barbie wears a classic Tattersall trench coat, an ultrasuede skirt, striped jumper and a pair of strappy heels for a complete look. Red round-framed sunglasses and her signature red leather duffle – the most iconic purse of all are an indispensable part of accessories.
“This is the first time that Mattel has collaborated with Coach to have actual, mini leather duffle handbags produced by the Coach manufacturer,” Barbie designer Linda Kyaw explains. “What you can buy for yourself has been replicated for Barbie!”
Priced at £95 and ($119) imited to only 13,000 pieces, Coach Barbie will be available to buy at Coach retailers internationally as well as in Mattel stores worldwide.
