For more than 50 years, Barbie has been a fashion icon. Since she first stepped onto the beaches of Malibu in her classic black and white swimsuit, her unparalleled sense of style has served as inspiration for more than 150 leading fashion, beauty and design houses. Celebrating the iconic doll’s Californian heritage, this season Barbie® partners with Los Angeles based designer, Trina Turk, to bring fans the Trina Turk Malibu Barbie Collection.
Influenced by the California beach lifestyle and vintage looks of the ‘60s and ‘70s, designer Trina Turk’s collections embody both casual glamour and modern sophistication. Trina’s designs reflect confidence and creativity, making Barbie the perfect muse for her bold colors and cheerful prints.
Debuting summer 2013, the Trina Turk Malibu Barbie Collection features something for every fan – including the Barbie Collector Malibu Barbie by Trina Turk doll, stylish accessories, beach towels and surfboards.
Malibu Barbie® by Trina Turk Doll
Effortlessly glam and ready for a day at the beach, the Barbie Collector Malibu Barbie by Trina Turk doll dons a colorful printed bandeau bikini and hexagon lace tunic. A stylish and modern update from the original Malibu Barbie of the ‘70s (the inspiration for the doll and collection), this doll is perfectly accessorized from head to toe with a matching tote, white wedges and stunning pink shades. Much like the original doll from the ‘70s, Barbie even has “tan lines” and has a bottle of sunscreen.
Taking her look from the sand to the shops of Malibu, the Malibu Barbie by Trina Turk doll
includes extra fashions -- a vibrant blue silk traveler blouse, signature Trina Turk printed shorts and large brimmed hat and a printed scarf.
