Sophia Webster is the latest designer to get inspired by Barbie. The peddler of whimsical footwear has teamed up with the iconic doll for a collaboration that (no surprises here) is very pink and very girly.
Webster created the perfect shoe collection for grown-up Barbie fans with deep pockets and hyper-feminine proclivities. On tap, you will find her speech bubble flats with pink straps and the words “Barbie” and “Doll” written in the recognizable Barbie font, slip-on sneakers printed with the Barbie B, a Barbie-fied take on her famous butterfly wing sandals in pink and silver, and more. The shoes (available both for women and girls) are set to hit Webster’s website August 27, but prepare yourself for even more Barbie-related fare from the designer. According to Vogue UK, Webster is coming out with her own limited-edition Barbie Doll, which will be outfitted in a pair of Sophia Webster Riko hi-top glitter sneakers.
“Creating a shoe collection for Barbie has always been my dream project, but getting to be a part of her embracing flats for the first time made it extra exciting, and deeply personal,” Webster said. “I love that this concept strikes a balance between dreams and reality – the idea of getting Barbie in some hi-tops and setting her loose in East London instantly appealed.”
