A Karl Lagerfeld Barbie Doll Is Happening-------
Fendi’s Karlito is about to get a new (though not as furry) friend. WWD reports that as part of its Barbie Collector series, Mattel has teamed up with Karl Lagerfeld—arguably the most-buzzed-about designer in the biz—to create a limited-edition doll. This pretty much keeps Karl in his natural habitat—that is, surrounded by a bevy of leggy beauties. We can only wonder if Barbie Karl will be accompanied by a Mattel iteration of Choupette? Or perhaps a St. Tropez vacation villa in lieu of Barbie’s Malibu Beach House? What we do know is that the Chanel-certified doll, which hits stores this Fall, will keep to Karl’s iconic aesthetic—fingerless gloves and powder-white ponytail included.
