This doll is a lovely tribute to the legendary Sir Elton John!
"She's the most Moschino Barbie® ever!" exclaims the young girl in a parody of a Barbie commercial designed to go viral. The doll is for adult collectors but the commercial features three kids playing with Moschino Barbie®, one of whom is a very fierce boy with a super trendy disconnected undercut.
According to the outlets with the latest scoop on the doll, she will retail at about $150. There is no official word yet on actual production numbers and where the dolls are going to be available. The latest rumors have some collectors grousing and grumbling already. Photos of the packaged doll clearly show that she is a Gold Label doll, which means we're probably looking at higher production numbers than the early rumors implying numbers in the 1K to 2K range. We now have official images of the dolls from Barbie Collector and Moschino.
This latest collaboration between Barbie Collector™ and Moschino comes on the heels of Jeremy Scott's Spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection for Moschino shown during Milan Fashion Week last year. The very kitschy capsule collection clearly drew much inspiration from Barbie, and we were told that a very limited collectible doll was also given to attendees of his show.
Barbie Collectors and Jeremy Scott fans knew it was only a matter of time before a collaborative effort would lead to Moschino Barbie® doll. So far, we know that Barbie doll will come with a logo T-shirt, quilted faux leather bomber jackets, earrings, sunglasses, a backpack, a logo baseball cap, a logo belt, necklaces, a purse, little Moschino heels, and a miniature Moschino shopping bag. Whew! She's heavily accessorized! We also know from early reports that another RTW collection will accompany the release of this doll. The collection will include adult-size versions of Barbie's clothes and accessories, and two Moschino Barbie T-shirts.
This doll will be available on November 9, at Moschino.com and net-a-porter.com.

My name is Jared. I began collecting dolls in 2011. It all started with Barbie® Basics Model No 16 Collection 002 for me. Soon after that, I started photographing my dolls, editing the images and sharing my work on my Tumblr photoblog, Life in Plastic. "Playing" with dolls has inspired me to learn to sew, paint with acrylics, re-root doll hair, practice my bead craft, among other things...My collecting hobby turned into a passion for creating art in different media!
