Moschino Barbie by Jeremy Scott

Today sees the release of Jeremy Scott's latest foray into the world of Barbie. (Have I really devoted two blog posts to Barbie in recent months?! Who'd have thought it...) The plastic icon has proven to be one of Scott's greatest muses, so it's no surprise that he jumped at the chance to dress her from head to toe in Moschino.

But Barbie doesn't get all the fun... oh no. If you fancy matching her, you can purchase eight life-size ready-to-wear pieces that are available exclusively from Net-A-Porter. Most of the pieces are as brash as you would expect from this collaboration, and rightly so. However, if your own look is a little lower maintenance than the woman of the hour, there's always the Barbie t-shirt – probably the item I want to get my hands on the most!

Barbie is certainly getting around these days (so to speak); the fashion world is embracing her with open arms, and I for one am pretty happy about this. Having been regarded as symbol of everything that is wrong with the world's treatment of women for so long, she is finally being embraced in a light-hearted way. A love of fashion doesn't make you frivolous or shallow, that is something that Barbie and I agree on. After all, feminist issues are far too big to be shouldered by Barbie alone...

Moschino Barbie Doll £100
Jacket leather shoulder bag £950
Gold-plated clip earrings £155
Barbie-print cotton-jersey t-shirt £185
