Stephen Jones Selfridges Barbie holiday 2013

ALL DOLLED UP: Stephen Jones has teamed up with Selfridges to create couture looks for a series of one-of-a-kind Barbie dolls to be sold exclusively at Selfridges in London. The British milliner has designed five bespoke looks for Barbie for the holiday season: Happy Holly; Toffee Ice; Santa Baby; Snow Globe, and Christmas Tree.

Jones joins the roster of fashion designers and brands that have dressed the doll in the past, including Burberry, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Prada. The dolls are priced at 250 pounds, or $399, each and will be available for purchase at Selfridges on Nov. 15. “Barbie is the most fabulous private client,” said Jones. “She came into the salon for her Christmas morning hat, and left with five glamorous outfits. Barbie and I have the same design vision; We love tradition, but have an eye for the future,” said the milliner, noting that Holly Barbie is his preferred creation. “This is my personal favorite, using the contrast of soft velvet and spiky holly leaves. Barbie also has her very own pet robin to give her a Christmas peck.”
