Karl Lagerfeld becomes a Mattel doll – Barbie’s new BFF?
We have written before about Karl Lagerfeld’s projects with Barbie, either designing for her or photographing her. Now comes the time to join her into the Barbie world: he will become a Mattel doll in the classic 1/6 Barbie scale. The doll will be a limited edition and will be released in the autumn. The doll, frida kahlo handmade doll designed by Robert Best (as you can see in his sketch above) is dressed in the classic manner that the famous Chanel designer prefers: a tailored black jacket, a white shirt with a high collar and skinny black jeans. Accessories include a necktie, dark sunglasses and black ankle boots. Can’t wait to get this one!
