To celebrate Barbie’s 50th anniversary, Givori, the luxury accessorizor specializing in mobile art, has teamed up with leading toy-creator Mattel to launch a limited edition phone commemorating the most successful doll of all time.


The Barbie Limited Edition Collection, which is designed using the Nokia 8800 Carbon phones, is sure to delight Barbie merchandise collectors. Sprinkled with Barbie magic, vintage 1930’s intaglio Czech stones, and genuine CRYSTALLIZED – Swarovski Elements, these phones are a must-have item with only 10 individually numbered pieces word-wide meticulously handcrafted to ensure that no two phones are alike.


“Barbie is an iconic figure that has for five decades been associated with fun, glamour, and fashion,” says Samer Safsafy, Givori Brand Manager.

Givori recognizes these brand attributes and is delighted to be participating in the celebration of the world’s favourite doll through the production of a limited edition phone enabling customers to own a little bit of history,” continues Safsafy.


The Givori Barbie phone, which retails for DHS 15,000, was launched yesterday at the exclusive finale catwalk show of Dubai Fashion Week.  The impressive catwalk event saw international designers showcase an extravaganza of clothes and accessories, all designed with Barbie doll as the muse. 


“Each phone is inspired by a unique collectable timeless Barbie doll, the selection of dolls ranges from the first ever Barbie doll produced in 1959, to the queen of hearts in wonderland, to the cultural Spanish Barbie doll. The finished piece is a tantalizing mix of technology and art, function and fashion, practicality and Barbie beauty” concludes Safsafy.


The phone is designed as a valuable collector’s item for Barbie fans and comes as part of a gift set including a beautiful Barbie collector doll matching to each unique phone, a complimentary crystallized compact makeup mirror and a mobile pouch made out of Italian leather. 


The Barbie Limited Edition Collection is now available exclusively at Harvey Nichols Dubai and select Axiom Telecom outlets. For further information please visit or call 800 – Givori.
