To celebrate Barbz’s new articulated ankles, allowing her to wear flats, Sophia Webster teams up with our plastic companion for a collection.
We’re kinda jel that the little girls and boys of 2015 get to dress their Barbies in flats. Our dolls only got to wear skyscraper heels with their freshly-cropped-with-the-kitchen-scissors hair, even if they weren’t feeling glam. Barbie is getting new articulated ankle feature, which sounds suitably revolutionary for one of the most iconic toys ever (sorry, Cindy). For this turning point in Barbie’s history, Sophia Webster has been selected to collaborate on a footwear capsule collection.
For children and big kids, the collection has six adult styles with two trainers, one flat sandals and three pairs of heels, including Sophia Webster’s signature Chiara sandal and three kids versions. The collection comes to Selfridges 27th August with a video following by Sharna Osborne starring our fave blonde, Kali Uchis as our very own real life Barbie.
