So when we saw this collaboration fall, we had to make sure to share everything we could about this Hilary MacMillan x Barbie capsule collection! The exclusive Hilary MacMillan x Barbie Shades of Pink collection releases 08.11.22.
First look at the Hilary MacMillan x Barbie collection
“We’re thrilled to finally announce our collaboration with Barbie. The collection, titled ‘Shades of Pink’, is the ultimate Barbiecore, truly tapping into the coveted dopamine dressing trend. We’ve reinvented the brand’s must-haves to take you back to generations past with the ultimate celebration of joyous nostalgia. For me, Barbie was a staple of my childhood and I wanted to bring the consumer back to those pivotal moments of carefree. Barbie is such a feminist icon and we’ve created pieces to empower women and children through the power of pink,” founder and designer Hilary MacMillan tells WWD.
Available up to size 4X or size 28, we get a 15-piece capsule complete with accessories. The Hilary MacMillan x Barbie collection gives us “Vegan, cruelty-free, size-restricted ready-to-wear styles inspired by Barbie across generations in Barbie’s signature pink hues.”
Are you excited about this?
No, this isn’t the first time we’ve had access to a Barbie capsule collection, but it’s one of the first that’s more contemporary and modern. And we are here for that.
We’re also getting a mini collection for kids with this collab, especially if you like to match your kid’s look with your own! These matching styles include a Barbie knit cardigan, plaid miniskirt, trench coat and varsity jacket.
You can score something for yourself and the child!
If you’re in Toronto, you can even shop the collection in-store on Bloor St. W. in Toronto. For the curious, yes, Hilary MacMillan ships internationally!
