A limited-edition capsule collection created in collaboration with a pop culture star will support Girls Inc. through the Barbie Dream Gap Project.
November 16, 2022, AUSTIN, Texas /PRNewswire — The first-ever BarbieTM x Kendra Scott collection is being introduced by Kendra Scott today in collaboration with the supreme pop culture icon. The six-piece, limited-edition capsule collection draws inspiration from friendship, style, and being a force for good.
This renowned partnership, which marks the 20th anniversary of Kendra Scott and the 60th anniversary of the Barbie DreamhouseTM, has just been released in time for the holiday season. The assortment of pieces from the collection includes two necklaces with elevated plating, two bracelets, and two pairs of earrings that showcase the attention to detail and fine craftsmanship for which the Kendra Scott brand is renowned, as well as the pink colour that has come to be associated with the Barbie brand. Convertible necklaces, staples for layering and making a statement, and updated versions of the best-selling Kendra Scott Elisa Necklace are all included in the collection.
The BarbieTM x Kendra Scott Gold Elisa Multi Strand Necklace and BarbieTM x Kendra Scott Chain Necklace both reimagine the brand's most adaptable silhouette and add sophistication to any ensemble. The Hot Pink Drusy and high-shine stones on the BarbieTM x Kendra Scott Gold Statement Earrings make them the perfect staple, and Pink Opal gives a splash of colour to the chic yet playful BarbieTM x Kendra Scott Gold Huggie Earrings. Last but not least, the Pink Crystal baguette stones on the BarbieTM x Kendra Scott Gold Delicate Chain Bracelet make it modest yet striking.
Due to the fact that both companies are known for empowering women and girls, Kendra Scott will donate 20% of the sales from the BarbieTM x Kendra Scott Everlyne Friendship Bracelet to Girls Inc. through the Barbie Dream Gap Project, the company's international campaign designed to raise awareness of the barriers that keep girls from realising their full potential.
"BarbieTM x Kendra Scott was created with the intention of empowering women to believe that they are capable of achieving everything they set their minds to. Barbie taught me as a child that there are many different types of beauty and, most importantly, to follow my hobbies "said Kendra Scott, the company's founder and executive chairwoman. "I'm so happy to work with you guys on a line that honours both style and philanthropy so we can keep inspiring the next generation of girls to dream even larger," the co-founder said.
BarbieTM by Kendra Scott's limited-edition collection will be sold at Kendra Scott retail locations and online at kendrascott.com/barbie-x-kendra-scott. Prices will be in the $60-$198 range.
