Karl Lagerfeld is to be immortalised as a Barbie Lagerfeld by American toy giant Mattel, wearing his signature look with fabulous accessories, such as a neck-tie, fingerless gloves and oversized sunglasses.
This is not his first collaboration with the brand, in 2009 he gave Barbie a makeover by dressing her in Chanel, but to mark the 55th birthday this year Lagerfeld and Mattel have thought outside of the box to create something really quite special.
It’s not everyday that Barbie dresses like the world’s most famous fashion designer
– Kim Culmone, global vice president of Barbie product design.
Hopefully Choupette, the Chanel creative director’s cat, will be created to accompany this iconic doll, which is set to be released this fall as part of the Barbie Collector series.
