In the run up to December Bleach got their staff to give Barbie a makeover…
At last it’s happened a tattooed Barbie! Specifically ‘Tokidoki Barbie’ with pink hair, cool silver sunglasses… and tattoos across her shouder and neck (via Nylon Blog).
I say NSFW but to be fair you can’t actually see ‘anything’ in this series of photographs from Alex Kliszynski:
The main body of my work is a number of human-dolls that aim to raise questions about the numerous images of the objectified and idealised body that we see in the mass media. The doll images are composites, with the dolls’ limb-joints painstakingly, digitally, superimposed onto the human subjects to create disturbing images.
Not a fan of this but worth a post as it’s an interesting concept…. That said it amuses me that Barbie is described as wearing a black catsuit in a fashion, rather than fetish sense. I would place money that the latter is what will really make people get their rocks off over Barbie in this instance. To be fair she does have a great arse… Buy her here.
I have always wanted to kick Barbie… Barbie Table Football is from Chloe Ruchon, seen at DMY Berlin Design Festival 09 (via Design Boom).
