Sophia Webster creates new shoe collection with Barbie
Her collection, Barbie by Sophia Webster, features six adult styles and three children's shoes. The adult styles consist of 2 sneakers, 1 flat sandal, and 3 heels, including Webster's well-known Chiara-heel with a butterfly. The collection launches at Selfridges on August 27.
Sophia Webster says: "Creating a shoe collection for Barbie has always been my dream project, but getting to be a part of her embracing flats for the first time made it extra exciting, and deeply personal. I love that this concept strikes a balance between dreams and reality - the idea of getting Barbie in some hi-tops and setting her loose in East London instantly appealed."
The footwear collection, which is part of the Barbie Fashionista campaign, is modeled by Columbian singer and songwriter Kali Uchis.
Evelyn Mazzocco, Senior Vice President & Global Brand General Manger, Barbie, says of the collaboration: "Every on the go girl needs a great pair of flats - Barbie is no exception. Sophia has brilliantly captured Barbie's spirit with an imaginative collaboration of flats and heels that allow girls of all ages to express themselves through Barbie and of course, great fashion."
Webster also designed a limited-edition Barbie for the collection, which wears wears a pair of 'Riko' hi-top glitter sneakers.
