After KITH Women joined Barbie for a doll customization event, French luxury eyewear brand Thierry Lasry has partnered with American toy company Mattel as part of Barbie’s ongoing 60th anniversary celebrations. For the exclusive collection, Lasry designed two styles of sunglasses and four limited-edition dolls that come together in a co-branded collector’s box.
Handmade in France and imbued with Lasry’s retro-futuristic aesthetics, the sunglasses offer sophisticated eyewear options for fans of the iconic Barbie and Ken dolls. The “Galaxy” style for Ken features a thick and rectangular style, available in a two-toned black and white colorway with blue lenses or an all-over brown. The “Glamy” frames, inspired by Barbie, feature an oversized cat-eye silhouette in a translucent pink and more subdued natural brown colorway.
