Dita Von Teese is again teaming up with Wheels & Dollbaby to release a much-anticipated new cardigan collaboration.
Melanie Greensmith, Wheels & Dollbaby creator, and Dita met and became friends in London twelve years ago. With their shared love for all things glam, they decided to collaborate on a cardigan, which neither knew at the time would become a worldwide hit and collectors item. It ruminates the Barbie Doll collecting of a different era, adorably packaged in its beautiful French dresser shaped box. The cardigan collection by Wheels & Dollbaby is extremely collectable, with the Dita Von Teese Cardigan the highest selling in the range so far. Celebrities such as Katy Perry and Jerry Hall have been spotted wearing the cardigan and collectors have paid up to $1500 to ensure they have a one-off colour, as well as trading colours on eBay and alike for well above RRP.
The newest collaboration released will be the twenty-second colourway in the collection and will launch in June as Dita will be in Australia. The launch will include an in-store signing by Dita herself at the iconic Wheels & Dollbaby Crown Street store in Surry Hills – the longest running Wheels & Dollbaby store, continuously frequented by celebrities which have included Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan, Courtney Love, Daisy Lowe, Kelly Osbourne, Debbie Harry and more.
Wheels & Dollbaby was established in 1987 and is constantly featured in French, Italian, UK and Australian Vogue, Grazia, Harpers Bazaar, Vanity Fair and many other high-end publications. It is an independently owned and Australian made brand which portrays luxury, elegance and beautifully made clothing – making Dita Von Teese the ideal woman to form a partnership with.
Dita Von Teese says 'This longtime collaboration with Wheels & Dollbaby is something very special to me… I'm so excited to celebrate the launch of our newest colourway with an opportunity to meet my fans in the Sydney store during the Australian tour of Strip, Strip Hooray!"
