Karl Lagerfeld is going to be immortalised as a Barbie. That's right. Mattel has announced a new Chanel Kaiser doll. Yes, you read that correctly: Barbie, not Ken.
Dressed in the designer’s signature style - black suit, puffy tie and leather gloves – it’ll be a limited edition doll, part of the series Barbie Collectors.
Only one sketch has been released so far, signed by Robert Best, designer of the collectibles for 14 years. This is the first time Barbie has actually embodied a designer, but she’s quite the fashionista, having previously worn clothes by Versace, Loboutin, Vera Wang, Donna Karan, Dior, Burberry, Oscar de la Renta and many other famous labels.
