New: Malibu Barbie by Trina Turk

by Alison Rasmussen

With an expected shipping date of 6/13/2013, this brand new addition to Mattel's designer collection is Gold Label Malibu Barbie Doll by Trina Turk. She has been designed by Bill Greening, one of my favorite designers at Mattel.

Inspired by the original Malibu Barbie of 1971, this new rendition is dressed in an adorable floral print bikini and a lacy white cover-up. She also includes a blue satin peasant blouse and floral print shorts, as well as a coordinating oversized hat.

Like any designer doll, she includes some fabulous accessories: white sunglasses, a pink cuff bracelet with rhinestone, ring, straw tote with Trina Turk logo charm, floral print scarf, sunscreen, floral print beach towel, and fantastic platform sandals.

She's available to order at BarbieCollector now, with a limit of five dolls per order. I think she's just adorable!
