Charlotte Olympia Dellal channeled her inner child for her latest collaborative collection.

The famed footwear designer teamed up with Barbie on a capsule accessories collection that launched Tuesday. In addition to a Barbie doll designed to look like Dellal — complete with an outfit based on a Giambattista Valli look the designer wears — the capsule collection also includes shoes and bags.

"The essence of my brand comes from my love of a bygone era. I love the 1940s and 1950s, and it was important for me to capture this aesthetic in the collaboration. The development process was fantastic, and every detail was wonderfully executed - including the doll's hairstyle and red mani/pedi! It was very special to see perfect replicas of my signature shoes and accessories in miniature form, as well as the brand's mascot, Bruce the leopard," Dellal told British Vogue.

"I love the original 1959 doll which was the starting point for me, adding signature Charlotte Olympia styling which felt really natural, given that I love to celebrate that era. It was a privilege to work with this icon," she added.

Dellal has previously collaborated with a slew of other brands including Agent Provocateur, Havaianas and MAC Cosmetics. Barbie has also teamed up with a variety of other designers and labels such as Karl Lagerfeld, Moschino and Hervé Léger by Max Azria.
