From my personal collection a rare vintage Japanese (Japan) market exclusive Barbie plaid dress with chain link belt and orange spike heels. The items came to me with the striped long-sleeved knit top and I have created a reproduction felt hat to complete the outfit. I HAVE MANY MORE PHOTOS - PLEASE ASK IF YOU NEED MORE DETAILS. PLEASE READ THE FULL DETAILS OF THIS RARE MATTEL JAPANESE MARKET BARBIE FASHION.The check / plaid / tartan dress is in excellent condition as is the gold-coloured chain link belt and orange spike pumps. The dress is very crisp, like new, with good stiff pleats to the skirt, no marks or pulls or holes and a very good zip and lining. Typically it is not tagged, as seen with other examples of this and some other Japanese exclusive clothes, but is a confirmed vintage and uncatalogued Japanese market fashion from the 1960s. The dress has string loops for the metal chain link belt to thread through.
The shoes complete the look and are excellent. The stripy top came to me with the dress and although different to the yellow top I have seen teamed with this dress in other collections, it does compliment it very well. It has metal press-stud popper closures and is in very good condition, apart from the thread on one cuff is missing. The felt hat is a reproduction that I have created to top off the outfit, using a vintage 1960s Skipper hat headband and ribbon in a colour-match to the original.
