Exclusively available on the Hudson's Bay Company's website and several physical locations in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, and Vancouver, the latest Hayley Elsaesser range is just as whimsical and pattern-heavy as the designer's previous work. This launch, however, spotlights a special collaborator — Barbie.
Hayley Elsaesser is an emerging designer based in Toronto who has gained incredible popularity of recent due to her daring, bold and ultra-playful designs. The aesthetic ties in perfectly well with the narrative of Barbie, hence, this capsule is quite perfect. The silhouettes boast a retro aesthetic and the patterns are doll-inspired. From a long double-slip dress with Barbie's car to a dress with a pattern that is adorned with ethnically diverse Barbies, the Hayley Elsaesser x Barbie collaboration truly satisfies the categories of playfulness, empowerment, and inclusivity.
