Barbie: Moschino vs Wildfox
As a girly girl brought up in the 90's of course my bedroom was filled with Barbie dolls, cars to take them to the beach and not forgetting the Barbie where you could change their hair colour? When Barbie made an official instagram earlier this year- I was ecstatic to see a childhood icon still going strong and having an impact on our day to day lives. Earlier this week Moschino revealed it's SS15 catwalk collection, hugely inspired by Barbie and if it hasn't featured on your Facebook and Twitter timelines prepare to be amazed. After launching their AW14 collection in February straight from the catwalk reveal they decided to take the same approach he same this time round. Buying is exactly what people are doing with lots of pieces already out of stock.! As part of Vogue's #FNO I popped into Selfridges last night and saw some of the bags for the first time- absolutely stunning! However apart from the iPhone case the collection isn't exaclty affordable... So I am here to save you with one of the latest lookbooks from Wildfox which also plays homage to all things Barbie. The bad news is however, rumours are the Wildfox collection won't be available until January, but if you can't afford a piece from the Moschino collection (the majority of us- don't worry) Wildfox is a great option when the collection lands. Let me leave you with my top picks from Moschino SS15 and let the countdown begin for the Wildfox collection.
1. Moschino SS15 Jumper, £379
2. Totally Moschino SS15 Crop, £205
3. Moschino Mini Skirt SS15, £224
4. Moschino Leather Bag, £1,050
5. Moschino Rucksack, £422
