Barbie by Rei Kawakubo

Comme des Garcons' founder and director gives Barbie a new dress

For the very first time, Barbie herself is dressed by Rei Kawakubo, forming part of Comme des Garçons' 'Jingle Flowers' collection, a whimsical theme for the Christmas holiday.

Featuring a sleeveless silk-lined floral dress in the Jingle Flowers photo-style printed graphic, Barbie's outfit flares out in a full asymmetric-cut skirt. This limited edition Barbie forms part of the Barbie Collector Platinum Label Collection, and comes in a new box featuring the Jingle Flowers print.

Selling out in Tokyo last week, Barbie by Comme des Garçons is now arriving in all other Comme des Garçons stores including London's Dover Street Market, on sale for £225.

 The Jingle Flowers floral pattern also makes it onto limited edition Comme des Garçons products, including wallets, tees, the DSM flower bottle perfume, Artek chairs, and even snowballs that are now available to buy at DSM.
