If you’re looking to get in touch with your inner child – or inner princess – we’ve got good news for you from Tokyo. This week saw the release of a new collection of bags featuring everyone’s favorite perfect plastic princess – Barbie.
The Barbie bags have been created in collaboration with the popular American bag company LeSportsac. Each Barbie x LeSportsac bag features an all-over pink and black print with cute girly designs – and, of course, the Barbie logo. The new collection appears to be exclusive the Japanese market, at least for now. There is a window display promoting the bags at LaForet in Harajuku. It features a huge image of Barbie’s head surrounded by the new LeSportsac bags.
There are a total of nine bags in the Barbie x LeSportsac collection. Prices range from about US$20 for the small zip wallets to around US$100 for the purse and all the way up above US$100 for the large tote. Barbie is really popular in Japan – she even has her own adult fashion brand and many dedicated shops – so we expect these bags will sell out quickly. There are pictures of most of the bags below, so check them out for yourself and see what you think. If you’re feeling pink, this might be your lucky day!
