Coach is the latest in a long line of brands to collaborate with the fashion (and playroom) icon. And for the first time ever, Barbie's tiny, snazzy wardrobe has been produced from start to finish by the Coach design house. Meaning, everything she's wearing, you can wear. Well, in a slightly larger size. So in celebration of Barbie's new clothes (and chic new 'do--how does she keep it so shiny?), we're taking a look back at her biggest and best designer collabs to date--and there've been some doozies. When it comes to amazing designer collaborations, Target and H&M have got nothing on the original Queen B: We're talking Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Bill Blass, Vera Wang, Christian Louboutin, Dior, Versace, and more. Who needs an 11-inch tall plastic boyfriend when you've got Mr. de la Renta on speed dial?
The assortment that Frida Giannini delivered for resort was proof-positive that there are indeed two sides to every story. To wit: Her sartorial love letter to the disco era. At times it drew from that tradition of languid American sportswear, made iconic by both Halston (on the Studio 54 dance floor) and Bill Blass (on the shoulders of Park Ave.'s Uptown set); at others it spoke to the spirit of those hedonistic babes flitting about on the other side of the pond in Celia Birtwell's gregarious prints, Biba's earthy-sensual frocks, and all form of Fiorucci's cheeky chic.

After years and years of working for big names like Ralph Lauren, Armani and Banana Republic, Dolan decided she was finally ready to tell her own story. In 2010 she launched her label with a few retro swimsuits, which quickly grew into a complete range of classic, masculine-meets-feminine pieces in high quality fabrics. The busy New Yorker balances being a mom of three with running her growing business, both of which she does from her Broome St. apartment. She invited me into her amazing home (her studio is the floor below), and it was easy to get sidetracked as we discussed everything from her love of The Sound of Music to her dismay over the Kardashian phenomenon. One thing is certain, if you haven't heard of this designer, who is as honest and witty as her designs, it's time to take note. Read on to learn more.
