They are from a Barbie exposition in Tokyo that is held in the department store Sogo.

The collection in this exposition is from the famous Japanese collector Yasuhiro Sekiguchi. A lot of people know him from his books about vintage Barbie.

These look like prototypes samples. And they are signed by Robert Best. Can’t wait to find out more about these pieces. And I hope people who will visit this exposition will post more pictures. Because Tokyo is a bit far for me 😦
