AN AESTHETIC HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE:THE BARBIE EDITION

by HQ

Life in plastic, it's fantastic!

Welcome to tmrw’s 2022 gift guide. This year, we’re thinking about aesthetics: how we curate, collect, and covet material cultures in service of crafting and reflecting our identities. Let us take you on a journey through the surfaces and textures which defined 2022 – from the reclamation of the coquette, to the affected irony of blokecore, to the indie sleaze resurgence, and beyond. It’s a reflection of the ideas, trends, and communities which have blossomed in our cultural dreamscape – but mainly, it’s a guide to the things we’ve loved this year. We know you’re going to love them too. 

On the fourth day of tmrw’s gift guide, we give you the Barbie edition…

Hi, Barbie gals! It’s common knowledge, as Aqua sassy-sang in their 90s hit, that “life in plastic, it’s fantastic”. With the new live-action Greta Gerwig’s Barbie film starring the slay hearts-melters Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, we’re ready for total pinkification. Moving away from the Miss Perfect stereotypes, we fall for a dopamine-filled land of gleeful inclusivity and colour-overload joy. It’s about time to embrace seasonal ecstasy all the way, no matter any silly limitations. Let’s look through Barbie x Balmain rose-tinted glasses, show off a JACQUEMUS furry bucket hat and leave a trail of Bvlgari candy cute perfume in every room we grace. This season, we wear pink not only on Wednesdays…

INSTAX mini in pink

Camera, action, smile. While we’re drowning in the seas of beautiful faces seen on social media every day, sometimes it just gets a bit boring. Let’s be honest. Imagine you’re debut-driving around the town in a brand-new pink Corvette with your best dolls. Here’s a moment worth remembering. Instead of snapping a quick shot on a smartphone, go down the analogue route. FujiFilm created a pocket-size (well, if they’re a decent size) polaroid Instax 11 camera. Surprise! Skinny Dip London has it available in our favourite Blush Pink. It’s a no-brainer, really. Go get it and make your Barbie-Esque escapade a moment you’d go back to even decades later.

Kylie Cosmetics Holiday Collection Lip Kit

Deck your lips with the mother of all lip kits: the Kylie Cosmetics Holiday Collection Matte Lip Kit features everyone’s favourite Matte Liquid Lipstick and Lip Liner duo in two festive shades. O’Deer is a rose-y nude – think grown-up Barbie vibes – while Dashing is a classic red which will make you feel like Holiday Barbie come to life. Super pigmented, super bright, and super beautiful, these long-lasting formulas create a perfect lip look which will see you through every holiday event to come – whether you’re sipping cocktails in the DreamHouse or going Christmas shopping in the Barbiemobile.

Valentino Garavani Discobox’s pink platform pumps

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d know that fuchsia is Valentino’s colour of the moment. With a AW22 show full of head-to-toe pink looks, it’s a Barbie-girl’s fantasy. The highlight for us has got to be these ‘Discobox’ platform patent leather pumps: featuring 180mm block heels, you’re bound to make a strut-worthy entrance in these.

Gucci Beauty’s Mascara L’Obscur

Is there anything more Barbie than a high-end beauty look? If this aesthetic could be summarised, it’s all about those finishing touches, especially with beautifully adorned pink products. L’Obscur mascara is an ultra-rich creamy formula which curls, defines, lifts and adds voluminous length to your lashes. Encased within Gucci Beauty’s signature style packaging, a pastel pink tube with gold-toned logo, what’s not to love?

JACQUEMUS’ Le Bob Neve fluffy bucket hat

JACQUEMUS is an official patron saint of anyone who is here to embrace in-your-face stunning colours. Obviously, no colour can beat pink. Duh. Though we’re obsessed with most accessories that the brand has to offer, the crush of the month is Le bob Neve bucket hat in the prettiest of pinks, finished with a cutie-pie red border. It’s an embodiment of a fluffy winter fantasy. Fabolous and freeze-proof realness. JACQUEMUS proves that you can still serve a look to warm by-passers hearts even on the coldest of days. Barbie would wear it.

BALMAIN x Barbie sunglasses

Ideal sunglasses are like a cherry on top of an already exquisite outfit. For any total Barbiecore sweethearts, there’s a collab that will make you blush in a split second. Balmain has teamed up with Barbie to create gorgeous glasses. They’re not your usual shades, darling. Firstly, we stan the transparent cat-eye frame to be completely over the moon about the pink-tinted lenses. One gaze through them is all we need to find perfection in our imperfect world. Anyone wishing to immerse in the bubblegum daydream can purchase a pair on Farfetch.
