It’s Barbie’s world, we’re just living in it: Malibu Barbie by Trina Turk

Cali designer Trina Turk has updated Malibu Barbie, and has added a collection of accessories for the real life dolls as well. I’ve long been a fan of Trina Turk, as a lover of both color and print I am completely mesmerized by her colorful prints in the vein of Lilly Pulitzer and Emilo Pucci. I am also a diehard Barbie fan, so I was positively giddy to see this collaboration. The Malibu Barbie collection is a match made in heaven, the print is total beachy 60’s yet as always, Turk makes it feel current. Below is a sampling of some of the new wares, they are available June 16. All photos courtesy of


I don’t think I’ll ever be able to wrap a head scarf properly but this will be fun to try with!


This is a towel you definitely won’t accidentally leave at the pool. Love the retro B illustration.

No girl’s jewelry collection is complete without a Barbie pink cuff. The hexagonal flower detail is perfect. 


I have never surfed but cannot get enough of that red and hot pink combo!
