Classic beach girl Malibu Barbie just got a new wardrobe, thanks to LA designer Trina Turk. The 12-inch tall California icon's turquoise one-piece was swapped out for a floral bikini in Turk's signature color-happy style. She also gave Barbie a sweet straw tote, criss-cross white wedges and a handful of other beach-ready accessories.

Turk—who recently kicked off a collab with Chandon—also unveiled made-for-people surfboards, Barbie-inspired towels and accessories as part of her seasonal line, all available June 16th. Click through our gallery to see items that will soon be available at Trina Turk stores, as well as here and here.
