A Sneak Peek at Milan's Stylish New Barbie Exhibit

Jessica Schiffer

Barbie: The Icon, a retrospective tracing the history of Mattel’s iconic doll, opens at Milan’s new Museo del Culture on Wednesday, and WWD got a first look at what will be on display. Organized into five different sections, the exhibit covers everything from Barbie’s family (including the famous Ken doll and her many pets) to her myriad careers and nationalities. One thing is clear from the amazing archival pictures alone: If anyone can have it all, it’s Barbie. For those of us who can’t get to Milan before the show closes in March, a book on the exhibition will be released later this month. In the meantime, take a walk down memory line with Barbie via the imagery below.
