Being a doll collector, I was so happy when I’ve read that Mattel just added a new Barbie doll in their collection and it happens to be a Filipina Barbie named “Mutya.” Carlyle Nuera designed the doll inspired by Filipino culture and his own family.
“The name ‘Mutya’ means pearl or beauty or muse; it’s a girl’s name; and it is also used in the titles of beauty pageants in the Philippines,” said Nuera. “My mother, Ruby, was Miss Tacloban in 1976.”
Nuera, who has dreamed of designing for the Barbie Collection since childhood, looked to Filipino culture and fashion for inspiration. He chose the Kira sculpt for the face, which is a favorite of Barbie collectors that has not been used for almost fifteen years. The doll was then dressed in an organza terno with the classic big butterfly sleeves.
“The print on the organza terno references textiles of the different tribes in the Philippines as well as the sun icon from the flag,” said Nuera. “The embroidery on the hem is inspired by the Philippines national flower, the sampaguita. The details of Mutya Barbie’s jewelry refer back to tambourine jewelry as well.” (source: NBC News)
Mutya Barbie is limited to 4,400 dolls so hurry if you want one. I’m definitely going to buy one for my collection.
