It seems everyone’s holding their breath for the MTRCB to decide on the fate of the commercial release of Greta Grewig’s much-anticipated live-action Barbie film in the Philippines. We know you’ve been gearing up for its drop ever since the news of the movie blew up. And by gearing up, we mean looking for fabulous OOTDs you could sport at the cinemas—that is, if it’s cleared to show. We've got our fingers crossed with you. Truth is, though, whether or not the movie screens here, we know you've had your eyes on the sudden Barbie collabs dropping left and right. So we round up the capsule collections and more worth checking out; channel your inner Barbie girl not just for the premiere but also in daily life. Huge bonus if you’re an avid fan of pink or have always wanted something pink to add to your wardrobe.
SHOP: Barbie-Inspired Items and Collections
That’s right, Forever 21 is back with another pink-tastic Barbie collection to add to your equally stylish wardrobe! There’s a piece for whatever vibe and aesthetic. Going sporty? You got logo tees, sweatshirts, and cropped tops. Love denim and statement pieces? Think dresses and denim pieces all in the name of Barbie. There are sweet lingerie and swimwear as well as pajamas in the iconic pink hue with subtle light pink accents and sprinkled with glitz and rhinestones. Forever 21 is going to be truly a Barbie world.
One of our favorite silhouettes is this Barbie pink hue mini-skirt (P1,295) with rhinestone details on the waist as well as on the design pockets that form the name Barbie. You're going to be totally on theme with the Mean Girls on Wednesdays. It's the perfect bottom for your white top and pink heels or sneakers. Heck, you might even be Queen B! Oops, wrong movie. Or is it?
The pink mini-skirt is easy to pair with this denim jacket (P2,495) adorned with embellishments that just scream Barbie all over. That said, don’t forget the rhinestones. Both are in kids' sizes, but really, who's to stop you from styling them? You can also get one for your Barbie-loving niece or kids at home.
And of course, you can't mention Barbie without mentioning girl power. Don this tee (P995) to show the world your charm!
The Forever 21 x Barbie exclusive capsule collection is available in selected Forever 21 stores.
Tala by Kyla
Get your sparkle on with local brand Tala By Kyla's lineup of Barbie-inspired collections of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and heck, even keychains—because yes, jewelry best captures the shine. The eye-catching accessories are in glittering gold with pink and pearl accents. Not to mention that there are hearts everywhere. We’re not complaining.
We're totally shooting said heart eyes to this gold piece that has Barbie's initials on a pastel pink heart (P319). Barbie is all glitz and glam—and what's glitz and glam without (see also: a lot of) sparkle? But if you want it sweet and simple, this two-tone studded bracelet (P319) will definitely add that subtle touch of sheen to your everyday looks.
Aldo, too, has gone through the Barbie makeover, which means more fabulous footwear dressed in pink. The Barbie and Aldo collection has a lineup of pairs such as heels and sneakers Barbie herself would be envious of (and she will most probably nab something for her own wardrobe). There are also must-have accessories like this shining, shimmering, splendid Top Handle Bag as well as necklaces, rings, and earrings to add on top of the shoes.
The Top Handle Bag (P4,495) can fit all your fab touch-up essentials and is dressed in this chic pink and has rhinestones all over. It has a glittery heart detail on the closure as well as on the straps. The bag has a removable and adjustable crossbody strap that allows you to sling it over your body if not by hand anymore.
And you can't just mention Aldo without highlighting its pairs. One of the pink heels that absolutely caught our attention is the pastel pink platform-heeled sandals (P6,995) that have this light pink hue with a heart detail on the top. The name "Barbie" is written all over the insoles, which are designed with molded foam and padded insoles—talk about comfort and style, the Barbie way.
The Barbie x Aldo collection is available online and in select stores.
If you love both sneakers and Barbie, hit two birds with one stone with Superga and its cute, Barbie movie-inspired 2750 and 2802 pairs. The sneakers are dressed the way Barbie would've liked it—fabulously pink, and decked with prints and designs inspired by the film.
We absolutely love the 2750 in printed denim with a "B" monogram all over (P3,650). But overall, they're just chic and comfortable which Barbie would definitely approve of.
The Barbie Movie x Superga collection is available online and in select stores.
Okay, this isn’t a capsule collection per se, but there are still items Barbie would be proud of you copping. We spotted the Barbie brand in Zalora, and it’s filled with shoes, bags, and other accessories that subtly scream elegance, like this Malibu Moment Open Toe Sandals (P3,049) dressed in the prettiest pastel pink. It only has a lone heart in a darker shade with the Barbie name logo on it.
If you aren’t into sandals or just want them in sneakers form, there’s a cute pair decked in two-toned pink and white with a simple logo on the side called the Barbie Pop Icon Rounded Toe Sneakers (P3,049). Either way, you'll be feeling like the world is yours with these statement pieces.
Need a bag to complete the look? There's the Dreamhouse Livin' Shoulder Bag (P2,599) in the loveliest pink hue with gold details, including the metallic hardware logo on the flap, in faux leather. It's also available in black and white.
Available on Zalora.
