Mattel has teamed with British luxury shoe and accessories brand Charlotte Olympia to launch a Charlotte Olympia Barbie doll, as well as a capsule collection of Barbie-inspired shoes and clutch bags.

The Charlotte Olympia Barbie mirrors the 1959 original look and is dolled up with a two-piece leopard-print outfit accented with signature red platform pumps and a red Bogart leather handbag with matching red gloves.

The doll comes with Kitty flats, Eve platform sandals, the transparent Pandora clutch box, the Banana bag, the Web logo fascinator, gold spider web earrings, ivory cat-eye sunglasses and a Charlotte Olympia shoebox complete with dust bag.

The accompanying capsule collection features Barbie Girl shoes housed within pink Marabou feathers standing on a block Perspex heel and signature island platform.

The collection also boasts two clutches including Barbie Vanina, an all-pink leather clutch box with a gold and hand-painted enamel Barbie logo clasp and Barbie World, a blush Perspex clutch box with magnetic miniature accessories. 

"This was a childhood dream come true to collaborate with Barbie," said Charlotte Olympia Dellal, founder and creative director of Charlotte Olympia.

"It was a fantastic opportunity to be able to design and create a Charlotte Olympia aesthetic for one of the most iconic figures in the world." 

Robert Best, senior director, Barbie Design, added: "There is something playful about all of Charlotte Olympia Dellal's designs, which in addition to her being a talented designer, make for a perfect collaboration.

"Flats never looked so good on Barbie." 

The Barbie doll, the Barbie Girl platforms and the Barbie World clutch are available to buy exclusively at Charlotte Olympia stores, www.charlotteolympia.com, www.thebarbiecollection.com and www.netaporter.com.
