Mattel’s Barbie and Tutu du Monde, high-end fashion designer for children, have collaborated on a collection of tutu dresses, day wear and accessories, available globally in February 2022.

“When Barbie was created in 1959 by Ruth Handler for her daughter, her entire philosophy of Barbie was that through the doll, the little girl could be anything she wanted to be,” says Gemma Daniels, softlines head, U.K. and EMEA, Mattel. “Over 60 years on, Barbie continues to empower girls through imagination. This beautiful collection with Tutu du Monde of keepsake items can be worn for lasting memories that can be treasured forever.”

Each Tutu Du Monde item is reminiscent of French ballet costumes, hand-crafted and hand-dyed with silk ties, sequins, crystal beads and wisps of feathers applied to cotton, tulle and silk organza.

A new collection of designs inspired by Barbie, Tutu du Monde’s designs have been reimagined in a Barbie palette of pastels and rainbow touches, complete with Barbie motifs to create this collection for children, stocked at Harrods, Selfridges, Liberty, Bloomingdales, Saks, Harvey Nichols, OUNASS and more.
