Sophia Webster’s signature styles have been sprinkled with a bit of Barbie flair. The label is launching a line of shoes inspired by Barbie offered for both adults and children, including her Chiara butterfly stiletto sandals, which have been updated with pink hues and fun Barbie sayings.
“Creating a shoe collection for Barbie has always been my dream project, but getting to be a part of her embracing flats for the first time made it extra exciting and deeply personal,” said Webster. “I love that this concept strikes a balance between dreams and reality—the idea of getting Barbie in some hi-tops and setting her loose in East London instantly appealed.”
Evelyn Mazzocco, Senior Vice President & Global Brand General Manager at Barbie, says of the collaboration: “Sophia has brilliantly captured Barbie’s spirit with an imaginative collaboration of flats and heels that allow girls of all ages to express themselves through Barbie and of course, great fashion.”
This collaboration is a continuation of the Barbie Fashionista campaign, which celebrates diversity and individual style with 23 new dolls, featuring 14 different facial sculpts, 8 skin tones, 18 eye colours, 22 hair styles, and 23 hair colors, as well as fashions inspired by global fashion and beauty trends and authentic style.
No collaboration with Barbie is complete without a doll, and Sophia Webster has dressed a limited edition Barbie. Housed in a specially designed box, the Barbie by Sophia Webster doll wears a pair of ‘Riko’ hi-top glitter sneakers, behind which other miniature-sized style options are displayed.
The Sophia Webster Barbie collection will be available as of August 27th at SophiaWebster.com.
