To celebrate the beauty and tradition of the Lunar New Year, Guo Pei has carefully created this stunning Barbie Lunar New Year Doll. True to her country’s rich cultural heritage and legacy, this exquisite limited-edition piece wears a traditional Chinese dress in an opulent red – a color symbolizing beauty, happiness, luck and success. With Guo Pei’s signature embroidery style, the dress comes to life with symbolic golden phoenixes, representing femininity and grace. Water and wave motifs, traditionally seen on the attire of royalty, add the powerful allusions to wealth and resilience. Striking phoenix-themed accessories complement the regal ensemble. Bring artistry, beauty and good fortune to the Lunar New Year festive season, with this dazzling Guo Pei: Barbie Lunar New Year Doll.
The premier China-based fashion designer to figure prominently on the world stage, Guo Pei produces ornate embroidery and intricate designs that derive from the ancient traditions and symbols of her Chinese heritage, rendered in glamorous silhouettes. Andrew Bolton describes the approach as an “auto-orientalist” couture unprecedented in the “millennial history of Chinese dress.” The grandeur of her work, from the aureate cape Rihanna wore to the 2015 Met Gala to a gown festooned with 200,000 crystals featured in the Beijing Olympics, distinguishes Guo Pei as a worthy heir to the grand tradition of haute couture.
