Barbie In Bandages and Bondage? Hervé Léger Dresses The Doll In Two Sexy Signature Outfits.

Theses darn designer Barbies keep dressing better than I do. And the newest is wearing a designer whose dresses I've always wished to own.



The Hervé Léger by Max Azria Barbie® Doll (released today) is designed by Linda Kew. The new limited edition Barbie doll is wrapped in chic couture fashions constructed out of authentic Hervé Léger by Max Azria bandages and yarns,  manufactured at the very same factory that produces the full size designer collection.



The first look is a red haute bandage dress (the body-hugging design most associated with the name Herve Leger) with a removable miniature version of his leather black harness belt, black gladiator boots and a signature black and gold clutch. 



The dress is a sort of a mash up of three of his well-known red bandage dresses:

The second outfit is a miniature variation of the Danisa Jagged-Pike Jacquard Black and White Dress (which in its full size sells for $1590) black complete with open-toe booties and a black-studded clutch.






"Working with Barbie Collector on this exclusive collaboration has been an incredible experience," said BCBG Max Azria group chief executive Lubov Azria, "The Hervé Léger Barbie doll is a milestone project that I am excited to share with collectors of both brands."
