Mattel has released a new collection of dolls who, if they could speak, would probably use non-binary pronouns. The 4 Barbie and 2 Ken dolls are the latest collection released by Mattel in honor of their 60th Anniversary. Without specific names (each doll is just referred to as Barbie BMR1959), they are are clad in extreme streetwear, little hip ensembles reminiscent of such overpriced brands as Off-White, Moncler, Supreme, Fenty, Fear of God, Nike and Kith.
Barbie BMR1959 Collection
Priced at $29.99 each, the Barbie BMR1959 collection celebrates the fashion heritage of Barbie® and showcases how current trends influence the brand. These bold, fully posable dolls capture the diverse looks found in today’s streetwear culture. From high-low fashion mixes, re-imagined ‘90s gear to juxtaposed patterns, textures, and silhouettes, this curated ensemble is all about personal expression and style. This collectible fashion doll is fully articulated and comes with a BMR1959™ logo doll stand for displaying.
One of the greatest thing about the dolls is that each comes in a specially designed, FSC-certified shoebox made from materials that have been responsibly sourced and feature a fashion sketch of each doll by their designer, Carlyle Nuera.
