Kim Kardashian Buys Her Own Piece of Barbieland

Jun 08, 2024

Like many of us, Kim Kardashian’s wardrobe has been influenced by the Barbie movie. Unlike many of us, Kim Kardashian flew across the world to buy the exact same vintage Chanel necklace worn in the Barbie movie. Stars, they really aren’t just like us!

While chaperoning her daughter North West and a friend on a trip to Japan, Kim gamely sang karaoke in costume, which she called “her biggest fear” on Instagram (any selfless mother can presumably relate). So to treat herself, Kimberly went shopping at Vintage Ecoland, a vintage hotspot in Nagoya. While it has an extensive Chanel collection, the outpost also carries goods from many other heavy hitters, including Prada, Hermès, Cartier, and more.

“OMG best shopping ever in Japan!!” Kardashian wrote in an Instagram story, where she proudly displayed her Chanel purchases.

Kardashian picked up a bubblegum pink patent leather mini vanity bag, which is complete with a gold, interlocking C clasp. But the pièce de résistance of Kim’s Chanel haul is the pearl teardrop necklace adorned with multicolored crystal and, or course, the interlocking C logo, which she draped over the top of her quilted top handle bag. The statement piece, which was worn by Margot Robbie in the film, is a rare piece from Chanel’s 1995 spring ready-to-wear collection, worn on the runway by Shalom Harlow.

Kardashian has become a collector of rare items—particularly jewelry—that belonged to some of history’s most famous people, a fact not terribly surprising after she wore Marilyn Monroe’s “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” dress to the 2021 Met Gala. Recently, she made headlines when she bought Princess Diana's amethyst cross necklace at auction for just under $200,000 at Sotheby’s. She also owns Jackie Kennedy Onassis’s Cartier tank watch, which she told Vogue she wore to meet with then-President Donald Trump at the White House, as well as three bracelets from Elizabeth Taylor’s collection.

While it’s unclear if Kim plans to wear vintage Chanel or lock it in hermetically sealed storage, we’re jealous she gets to keep a piece of Barbieland.
