Gives Barbie a Footwear Makeover

Barbie has had something of a moment in fashion over the last few seasons, having been the main inspiration behind the Moschino Spring/Summer 2015 collection and had customised wardrobes created for her by a number of high-end brands for Selfridges. Now, British designer Sophia Webster is the latest designer to take on the challenge, collaborating with the iconic doll on a brand new footwear collection for adults and children.

The super-girly, candy pink range includes a delicate pair of butterfly wing sandals and speech bubble motif heels, but what is really getting fashion fans excited is the choice of patterned skater shoes and playful hi-tops – after all, Barbie is famous for not wearing flat shoes.

“Creating a shoe collection for Barbie has always been my dream project,” says Webster, “but getting to be a part of her embracing flats for the first time has made it extra-exciting and deeply personal. I love that this concept strikes a balance between dreams and reality – the idea of getting Barbie in some hi-tops and setting her loose in East London instantly appealed.”

The limited-edition Barbie by Sophia Webster collection launches today, available at Selfridges stores nationwide and Webster’s online e-store.
