Connecticut Barbie

Barbie takes on her newest role as a modern housewife, opening the doors to her fabulous dream home and introducing the newest Fall/Winter interior collections.

Eighties inspired pieces mix perfectly with a strong color palette to create a contemporary design aesthetic with a strong sense of nostalgia. Gufram create a dreamlike backdrop, bringing to mind childhood memories and a long lost sense of whimsy with life sized-cactuses and fallen ancient columns, while Mario Luca Giusto and Etro indulge girlie fantasies and introduce the doll’s signature color to the dining table. The perfect hostess knows how to serve in style and Toilet Paper’s tablecloth is a tastefully kitsch addition to any kitchen. The perfect balance of escapism and function, designers have transformed the ‘plastic fantastic’ world of Barbie into reality.
