BEST DRESSED: Barbie is getting a wardrobe makeover on both sides of the Atlantic. The doll just got outfitted in London by British designers, and today Coach unveiled a collaboration with Mattel on a collector’s edition Barbie decked out in an original head-to-toe look by the brand, complete with a handbag designed in miniature proportions — Barbie’s first-ever genuine leather accessory. In addition to the Classic Duffle bag in red, made in the same factories and with the same leather and hardware detailing used for the brand’s consumer handbags, Barbie wears a Classic Trench in tattersall over a striped sweater, an ultrasuede skirt and heels and red sunglasses from the brand’s collection. Mattel produced 13,000 dolls to retail for $95 each, launching on coach.com and at most Coach retailers internationally, as well as at Mattel specialty stores worldwide.
