Shoe-god Christian Louboutin has teamed up with Mattel, the maker of Barbie, to create 3 customized dolls. He already created a pink Barbie shoe for her birthday earlier this year.
The first Barbie, which has a release date in December will be a jewel-thief-themed doll. Two months later in February a safari-themed Barbie will be released. And the final Barbie, which is designed to go to the Cannes Film Festival will be up for sale in May.
Christian has already caused commotion by altering the doll’s ankles after saying they were too fat. “Barbie’s foot has always been shaped less ‘curvy’ than the rest of her perfect body. I just added my little science to Barbie and I’ve been proud to serve her. But fat ankles she didn’t have, she just could have had thinner ankles. That’s all.”
For the price of $150, each doll will come with four pairs of Barbie-size Louboutin heels and the doll itself will be packaged in Louboutin shoe boxes. The diary titled My Year in Paris with Christian Louboutin will come with the first released doll, but will also be sold separately. Hereby already some lovely images!
