pink in pantone barbie doll

‘pink in pantone barbie doll’ created in collaboration with mattel and pantone



one of the largest toy companies, mattel, has joined forces with pantone to release the ‘pink in pantone barbie doll’,  conceived by mattel designer linda kyaw. the signature color was translated into an outfit for the iconic figurine with an ensemble sporting PMS 219C – a shade of pink actually owned by mattel themselves. the dress is characterized by a fitted bodice – accented with a full flower – which then fans out into an undulating skirt made of cloth pantone color chips, and the entire getup finished off with pink-soled stilettos. a smattering of silvery and black bangles and hoop earrings complete the look.

  • I love this. It shows that inside the restrictions of marketing, cost and political correctness the designers at Barbie have a sense of humor and style.

  • @ricky – You noticed too? I thought I was the only one tired of these 2 topics. Its just bashed into our heads. Can you spell ‘oversaturation’? Pun intended.
