The KITH Women x Barbie dolls are a new lineup of collaborative toys that commemorate the 60th anniversary of the iconic dolls in a modern manner.
The dolls are designed in four styles that are each distinctly different in both their physical appearance and fashions, and will be part of the brands takeover of the KITH Soho location from September 21 to 29. The event will consist of an exhibition and styling competition that will enable participants to style each of the four dolls seen here with styles from the KITH Women's 80-piece collection. The exhibition will transform the store into a museum showcasing the iconic chevron swimsuit worn by the doll in 1959 and much more.
