Mattel launching a Karl Lagerfeld Barbie
Life in plastic, it's fantastic!
From the hand-drawn designs we can see that the Barbie is dressed according to the German couturier's trademark outfit; a tailored black jacket, a white blouse with a high collar and skinny black jeans. Accessories, also key for the new doll's ensemble, include a bulky necktie, dark aviator sunglasses and black ankle boots.
Kim Culmone, the global vice president of Barbie product design said, "It's not everyday that Barbie dresses like the world's most famous fashion designer."
Additional details about the collectors toy and its distribution are to be released at a later date.
