Barbie the Movie will roll out the pink carpet, debuting in theatres on July 21st. The excitement around this release has been palpable since the production of the movie gained momentum with the casting of Margot Robbie in the titular role and Canadian favourite, Ryan Gosling as Ken. The movie, first announced in 2009, has inspired a wave of Barbiecore with people around the world starting to “think pink”.
Barbiecore is a vibrant trend which is all about pink. But Barbiecore is also about presenting a infectious positive, confident, attitude. Whether you want to channel Barbie’s fashion or makeup, you can find inspiration on Pinterest, Instagram or now Threads. Barbiecore is a fun trend that doesn’t seem to to be going anywhere, but we expect it to peak this year with the release of the movie.
Many brands have entered into licensing agreements with Mattel, Barbie’s parent company to create some of the most fashionable launches ever seen outside of the Malibu Dream House. Here are some of our favourite collections out for a limited time:
