Last month I told you about the celebration of Barbie at Dover Street Market. From tomorrow, a space curated by Henry Holland, will be dedicated to Barbie's 50th anniversary, where it will run for two weeks. Limited edition Barbies in designs by Roksanda Illincic and Danielle Scutt (above, middle and right) will also go on sale. Meanwhile, Gareth Pugh has unveiled his own version of Ken (above, left) in black leather and sporting a mohawk.

"I wanted my Ken to be outside the confines of what is acceptable. I wanted him to be contemporary. So I gave him a black PVC coat that is a scaled down version of one from my menswear collection. And some skinny black trousers," he said. Make sure to swing by DSM to check out the space.
