My goodness I’ve been a slack-arse on this report, I’ve had it here for weeks but anyway, am glad I waited ’cause I can post more photos for you in one post that are totally awesome.Â I have loved all the Barbie collaborations this year and this one is no exception (and of course we’ll ignore Mr Louboutin’s comments about Barbie‘s ‘fat’ ankles now won’t we?).
The first of the three limited edition Christian Louboutin Barbie dolls arrived at Net-a-Porter! First up was the super chic Cat Burglar Barbie rockin\’ it out in an all in one black catsuit and Differa sandals, she also comes with a collection of 4 red-soled Louboutins, each with their own shoe box and bag! So Glamboyant!
But let’s do a quick recap: The Barbie/Louboutin collection will consist of three dolls packaged in Louboutin shoe boxes, each come with four pairs of Barbie-size Louboutin heels. The three dolls will be released separately, the first to be released was the jewel thief-themed Barbie; in February, a safari-themed Barbie, and for May Louboutin designed a Barbie that goes to the Cannes Film Festival. The dolls retail for US$150 each and will be sold at BarbieCollector and at Net-a-Porter.
In addition, Christian Louboutin is starring in a photo diary with Barbie, titled “My Year in Paris With Christian Louboutin” which comes with the jewel thief Barbie and is also sold separately for US$40.Â It appears to be sold out too!
So there you have it, the Christian Louboutin Barbie collaboration … it’s pretty damn awesome and I would love to be able to collect them all.Â And clearly there are loads of peeps out there who agreed and snapped up Jewel-Thief Barbie pronto!
Now you can see what the fuss is all about and decide if you want to make a purchase for the next one in 2010.
What do you think?Â Best Barbie Collaboration yet?Â The attention to detail is second to none, exquisite!
