Home decor designer Jonathan Adler has teamed up with Mattel for this pink label Barbie collector's edition.

The Barbie (as pictured above) is dressed in a 60s-inspired dress (think Austin Powers meets Twiggy) and comes complete with a matching, psychedelic nightstand and Barbie-shaped wall mirror.

Priced at $50, this Jonathan Adler collector is available at Toys 'R' Us under the Barbie Pink Label.
