Dylan Lauren, daughter of Ralph Lauren and owner of the coolest candy store in town (Dylan\’s Candy Bar carries over 5,000 kinds of candy – Sassi heaven!), joins the likes of Heidi Klum, Twiggy and Marilyn Monroe immortalised as a Collector’s Edition Barbie Doll wearing a multi-coloured gown inspired by a lollipop tree!
Dylan spoke to WWD about her new Barbie Doll, they asked her what it was like to have her own Barbie: “It\’s weird because I don\’t consider myself a Barbie doll. Some girls love to wear makeup, so it was weird to ask for the doll to have less makeup and natural hair. I was trying to make it look human, said Dylan.”
She wanted the dress to be theatrical and inspired by candy, she didn’t want to just wear her usual Polo shirts and jeans.Â She hopes it will be made into a real dress one day.
The collaboration is an extension on her Barbie-branded chocolates she created in 2009 in honour of Barbie’s 50th anniversary celebrations with Mattel.
In case you aren’t sure who/what Dylan’s Candy Bar is, take a tour inside her New York City flagship store:
Dylan Lauren’s Collector\’s Edition Candy Bar Barbie retails for $34.95 and is available online at Dylan’s Candy Bar website and Barbie’s Collections website … looks like you will have to use a freight forwarder to get one.
This is my dream store …
