Exclusive: Barbie Created a Moschino Collector Doll (and You Can Buy the Pieces for Yourself)
Barbie has the most coveted closet in the world (sorry, Kylie Jenner) and now it’s getting a little bit edgier with the new Moschino collector’s edition Barbie. And if you’ve always had a lifelong dream of borrowing a life size Barbie’s clothes (we blame Tyra Banks for that), there’s good news! You can shop a full-size ready-to-wear capsule collection of the same pieces (which are all, naturally, Moschino hero items).
Both collector’s dolls are decked to the nines in Moschino originals, including a slogan T-shirt, logo-trimmed mesh leggings and quilted leather bomber, with a plethora of branded accessories, including mismatched earrings, layered necklaces and a gold chain Moschino-emblazoned belt. (And every adult-size version of the look is available now at net-a-porter.com.)
“With these dolls I wanted to bring all the Moschino elements to Barbie’s world, which is the reverse of what we imagined for the Spring 2015 collection which brought Barbie elements to Moschino’s world,” Scott tells PeopleStyle.

As it turns out, it was Barbie who lead him to become a designer in the first place. “The thing I love about Barbie is that she is the ultimate muse and inspired me to become a designer,” says Scott. “Moschino style is all about humor coupled with high fashion and Barbie allows us to play out these looks in whole new way.”
