Barbie® has been a fashion icon for more than 50 years, working with some of the biggest names in the industry. Coach has also helped to define classic American style, with fine leatherwear, luxury craftsmanship, and modern design since 1941. It’s only fitting that these two iconic brands should come together to create one unforgettable, truly collectible doll — the special edition Coach Barbie® doll!
According to Barbie designer Linda Kyaw, the creative teams at Mattel and Coach have worked closely and tirelessly to develop the perfect look. “There is no detail left out, no scenario that was not thought through carefully,” Linda says. “This collaboration is a true ‘labor of love’ of the two most beloved brands of all time.”
Their passionate dedication is reflected in an exquisite doll that captures all-American glamour and on-the-go style. Barbie wears authentic pieces from the Coach clothing line, including a classic Tattersall trench over a striped green sweater and an irresistible Ultrasuede skirt. The trench’s stand-up collar and large golden buttons add extra fashion flair, while the skirt’s turnlocks are exact replicas of those on Coach handbags.
Barbie accessorizes her effortlessly chic ensemble with red round-framed sunglasses, which sit atop her chestnut-brown hairstyle, and open-toe heels from the Coach collection. But the pièce de résistance is, of course, her signature red leather duffle — the most iconic purse of all! Made from start to finish at the Coach design house (and given the same care and attention as every Coach bag), this must-have accessory marks a major milestone in Barbie fashion history.
“This is the first time that Mattel has collaborated with Coach to have actual, mini leather duffle handbags produced by the Coach manufacturer,” Linda explains. “What you can buy for yourself has been replicated for Barbie!”
Elegant in its simplicity, the Classic Duffle is finished with a decorative tassel and Coach tag and comes with a drawstring dust bag for safekeeping.
Barbie and Coach fans alike will want to commemorate this unique design partnership by adding Coach Barbie® Doll to their collections. She is the embodiment of classic American fashion and enduring style — and is available now at our online shop.
