First look at the Hilary MacMillan x Barbie Collection
“We are pleased to finally be able to announce our collaboration with B-onerbie. The collection titled “Shades of Pink” is the ultimate Barbiecore, really capitalizing on the coveted trend of dopamine dressing. We’ve reinvented the brand to take you back to generations past with the ultimate celebration of joyful nostalgia. For me, Barbie was such a staple of my childhood and I wanted to bring the consumer back to those crucial carefree moments. Barbie is such a feminist icon and we created pieces to empower women and children through the power of pink.” founder and designer Hilary MacMillan tells WWD.
Available up through a size 4X or size 28, we get a 15-part capsule complete with accessories. The Hilary MacMillan x Barbie collection gives us “vegan, cruelty free and size-inclusive ready-to-wear styles inspired by Barbie through the generations in signature Barbie pink hues.”
