The one-of-a-kind pieces are embellished with eye-catching rhinestones, charms and playful details such as bejeweled B monogramming and dynamic Barbie logos.
“We couldn’t have picked a better partner than Barbie – a legacy brand that transcends generations, living in the same playful and fashionable space as ALDO,” says Daianara Grullon Amalfitano, Chief ALDO Brand and Product Officer. “Our goal with this collaboration was to ignite fun and nostalgia for our customers, by inviting them to reconnect with the beloved world of Barbie where self-love, empowerment and dreaming big rule. With the rise of the viral Barbiecore trend this past year, we felt this was the perfect moment to bring the Barbie x ALDO Collection to life.”
