BARBIE’S BANDAGE MOMENT: Hervé Léger by Max Azria is the latest design house to dress Barbie, collaborating with Mattel on a limited-edition doll making its debut Oct. 15 at Hervé Léger stores, select Neiman Marcus locations and on barbiecollector.com. Donning a classic red bandage dress, a black corset belt from the fall 2012 collection, black gladiator boots and a gold clutch, the $150 doll comes with an outfit change of a black-and-white jacquard dress, open-toe booties and a studded clutch. Barbie’s runway-inspired looks were constructed in the same factory that produces the real collection, and her dresses and accessories will also be available in life-size versions. “As you can imagine, the biggest challenge was the scaling down of the knit,” said chief creative officer Lubov Azria.
