Tommy Hilfiger launches TommyXGigi Barbie doll
She’s a Barbie girl
Hot off the heels of the news that American sabre fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad has created a sure-to-be-iconic hijab-wearing Barbie, comes another cool doll to covet. American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger has teamed up with Barbie to create his very own, in the likeness of none other than global brand ambassador, Gigi Hadid.
The doll celebrates the very first runway show Gigi and Tommy collaborated on and a result, she is wearing a navy hoodie, white shorts and slip-on sneakers – reminiscent of the California cool girl vibes created during the aforementioned presentation (and an exact replica of Hadid's closing look for the show).
Of the collaboration, Tommy explained, "The collaboration with Gigi and Barbie was an exciting new twist on our brand's history of partnering with pop culture icons and our ongoing ambassadorship with Gigi. The final look of the TommyXGigi Barbie doll is a celebration of a defining moment in the history of Tommy Hilfiger womenswear."
The TommyXGigi Barbie is available to purchase from today at Tommy.com and Barbie.com. Also, see Ibtihaj Muhammad in Nike's new Nike Pro hijab campaign.
