An Official Pantone Barbie! That's Right. Mattel's New Pink in Pantone Barbie Doll.
Barbie is in the Pink. Pantone Pink 219C, to be exact. Mattel and Pantone have just released the new doll, designed by Linda Kyaw, for pre-order. The destined-to-be-a-designer's-favorite doll, with a retail price of $52.99, will ship in January 2012.
PINK IN PANTONE® BARBIE® Doll:
Barbie is all about pink, particularly PMS 219, her signature color -which, believe it or not, is actually owned by Mattel .
Barbie is clad in a pink, fitted “leather” bodice, with two straps and a flower accent made of Pantone color chips:
The glamorous dress celebrates the Mattel Barbie Pink fashion heritage with a long full skirt made of Pantone color chips in PMS 219C:
And the ensemble is topped off with white shoes, complete with pink soles and PMS 219C written on them (for those who are not familiar with Pantone matching system of inks, the "C" stands for 'coated'):
Silvery and black bangles and “silver” hoop earrings complete the look. Pink has never looked so pretty. Doll cannot stand alone. For the adult collector.
