Kith Women and Barbie are proud to officially release the Kith Women for Barbie doll – the centerpiece of their new collaboration launching today, December 6th.
In 2019, Kith Women and Barbie announced their partnership by launching a doll styling contest and a Kith in-store retrospective, paying tribute to Barbie’s 60-year history as an iconic interpreter of style.
Submissions were then reviewed by a panel of judges, comprised of three industry-leading stylists including Ade Samuel, Dianne Garcia, and Maeve Reilly.
This exclusive capsule collection is styled by up-and-coming stylist and winner of the Kith Women x Barbie Styling Contest, Mekka Shyian.
The collection includes apparel for women and kids that blends Kith’s signature silhouettes and fabrics with Barbie’s iconic legacy.
The Kith Women for Barbie doll is dressed in miniaturized Kith Women apparel in complete custom packaging. The packaging includes a miniature clothing rack with various Kith Women apparel, accessory, and footwear options for the doll, as well as a bench inspired by those found in Kith’s flagship stores.
In addition to the doll, the Kith Women for Barbie apparel collection sits at the intersection between timeless Kith Women silhouettes and iconic, timeless Barbie detailing.
Complete with full patchwork such as a gothic K patch, Kith box logo, and Kith for Barbie patches on the sleeves and back, the Varsity Jacket is the focal point of the apparel collection. The Golden Bear Varsity Jacket is offered in Black and crafted in a high-quality wool-blend fabric with quilted lining.
Additionally, the Jane Hoodie II is available in a 100% Black cotton fabric with Kith for Barbie artwork, as well as in a rich Amazon green with gothic Kith font which matches the Chelsea Sweatpant with the same detailing.
Alongside this, the Cris Crew is offered in Pink and White and has varying Barbie artwork and Kith for Barbie logo detailing on each sleeve.
The collection also includes special Kith Women x Barbie iterations of the Alexa Cropped Hoodie, Mei Tee, Lucy Tee, Mott Tee, and the brand’s signature Dad Hats.
The Kith Kids for Barbie collection also includes a Golden Bear Varsity Jacket offered in classic Barbie Pink, a branded Onesie and Pant set, an 100% cotton Kids hoodies and tees with Kith box logo and Barbie elements, a Williams Sweatpant, and a French terry Hoodie Dress with a unique graphic on the front.
