Moschino draws inspiration from Barbie (again)
Jeremy Scott professed his love for the classic Barbie doll with his spring 2015 collection for Moschino, and now the Italian label has partnered up with Mattel on an eight-piece capsule collection and an exclusive doll that will be released just in time for the holidays. Not surprisingly, the doll (which will retail for $150) got a very Moschino makeover, with a logo T-shirt, quilted faux leather bomber jackets, earrings, sunglasses and the like making up her wardrobe. The accompanying capsule will be made up of adult-size versions of Barbie's clothes and two Moschino Barbie T-shirts. {Fashionista Inbox}
