The world’s favorite plastic party girl and the furniture industry’s favorite plastic purveyor have teamed up in a brilliant collaboration to celebrate their respective birthdays at the big furniture fair in Milan.
The windows of Kartell’s flagship store have been transformed for the occasion, into six room settings, each animated by a life size Barbie (occasionally accompanied by a handsome escort), decked out in vintage Moschino. Kartell is even issuing two Barbie style chairs, the Louis Ghost and the smaller Lou Lou Ghost, embellished with the Malibu charmer’s distinctive profile.
But, wait! There’s more! Why stop at furnishing your dream house like Barbie? Why not step out in her shoes? Kartell also teamed with shoe company .normaluisa to create a limited edition of pink and white plastic ballerina flats (sadly, for sale only at the Via Turati flagship store.)
