Hot from the AW17 catwalk, Bovan has today announced a new collaboration with Barbie. The collection will launch around the doll’s 58th birthday and will include T-shirts, stickers and badges. A series of Barbies dressed in Bovan’s SS17 collection will also be on sale.
“Barbie for me, as a child growing up, allowed me to explore my creativity from a very young age”, Bovan told Vogue. Indeed, for many designers Barbie is the original muse; in spite of her outdated notions of beauty, there’s something irresistible about the combination of nostalgia, play and invention that the doll inspires.
The collection will be launched exclusively at Selfridges in March as part of the The Fashion East Store in the Designer Studios.
