Barbie loves Mimco; celebrating her 50th anniversary


Australian cult fashion accessories brand Mimco has teamed up with Barbie to ring in her 50th birthday in style down under. As the only Australian collaboration, Mimco created a range of pretty-in-pink items for their Barbie loves Mimco range just for Barbie lovers.

“Our style attitude at Mimco is to contrast your minimal with your maximal – so we love the idea of teaming Barbie glam with luxury casual,”¬† said Mimco’s creative director Cathryn Wills recently.

Drenched in pink and diamantes, the Barbie loves Mimco range has all your fashion accessory needs covered with jewelry, hair accessories, clutches, pouches, key rings, tote bags and shoes. But the lust-have item is the limited edition Barbie loves Mimco lady hobo. With a run of only 20, this limited edition handbag will set back some lucky ladies AUD$799.

Our personal favourites  are the Barbie loves Mimco satin ballet flats (pictured above) for $249 and the Barbie loves Mimco overblown floral satin case for $159. The floral print is just too pretty to resist.

The collection hits stores on November 9, 2009 with their online shop launching the collection two days earlier on November 11, 2009.
