Couture Barbapapa

Can Barbapapa and high fashion ever truly mix? For designers Laura and Lavinia Biagiotti's Doll collection, they've given it a try. The Fall/Winter 2011-2012 Collection features Barbapapa imagery throughout, mixed with a bit of clothing that reminds me of Gaultier's collection for the movie City of Lost Children.

The "garments celebrate the cartoon and the power of imagination, transforming for different uses just like the Barbapapa family that turns into flowers, hearts, alphabet letters, and so much more! As oversized embroidery in relief or hidden details on denim and fleece, the whole Barbapapa family can be found on outfits of the Dolls that come in three vibrant colors of the brand – white, red, and black. Barbapapa turns into a heart that brightens a striped sweater and jersey T-shirts. Barbamama, with a crown of sequin flowers, is the main theme for tops, mini-dresses, and T-shirts worn with white, black, and red striped Lurex leggings. Barbabeau, the artist of the clan, is embroidered on cashmere pullovers and sporty-chic chenille." (via)

I must admit that I find the whole child-model thing a little wierd, and I can't really imagine cashmere for kids. That said, I am a fan of black and white stripes so maybe this collection could win my heart.
