When the bright pink Barbie inspired Moschino collection hit the catwalk for

Spring/Summer 2015, it was bound to cause a stir amongst the fashion world.

Known for pop culture inspired collections, Jeremy Scott has once again hit the

nail on the head (because lets face it, I didn’t think phone cases could get much

better than looking like McDonalds French fries! But now every girl (or guy) can

achieve their dream of looking like the world’s favourite doll – the Barbie.

On the catwalk, worn as an outfit, the collection took us back to our childhood

where I refused to dress my Barbies in anything but the coveted pink but

surprisingly some of the items are wearable as individual items as not all of us

can pull off a head to toe pink PVC look (quel surprise!) The sweater component

of the two piece set could look fun and flirty with a pair of high waisted jeans and

of course the bright pink leatheresque jacket would be a great alternative to your

standard black leather. But if these are a little too pricey for your purse, I adore

the vanity mirror phone case and rumour has it, that similar ones are up on



But if wearing Moschino is a little bit too out there for your taste, plenty of high

street brands have hopped on the band wagon – but don’t worry, not all of it is

bright pink. Despite it being winter in the Northern Hemisphere, there are still

pink PVC midi skirts everywhere which look super chic paired with a polo neck

jumper and some heels. Likewise applies to pastel coats, which are readily

available in Primark. But if pink really really isn’t your colour, then why not try a

pastel nailpolish? Or step outside your comfort zone with a bright pink lip.

I’ve definitely been making Barbie happen, even within an entirely

monochromatic wardrobe.
