Life In Plastic

Life In Plastic

the shoe collection childhood dreams are made of

It’s a match made in heaven. Shoe maestro Sophia Webster has joined forces with everyone’s favourite doll, Barbie.

Combining Webster’s kooky designs with Barbie’s trademark bubblegum hue, the range surprises with some flat styles - a first for the vertiginous-heel loving Barbie - and an urban inspired shoot.

As Webster explained to Vogue, ’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. 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.’
