"Karl Likes Barbie Lagerfeld"

Lagerfeld's title for this photo is "Karl Likes Barbie Lagerfeld." It strikes me as very funny.

Get ready! Barbie Lagerfeld is arriving at the end of the month!
Taking inspiration from the designer’s signature style, Barbie Lagerfeld is dressed in the designer’s likeness with accents taken from the real KARL LAGERFELD line. Borrowing from Karl’s iconic silhouette, the doll wears a tailored black jacket, white high-collared men’s shirt with French cuffs and black satin cravat finished off with fitted black jeans featuring the iconic all-over head print.  The exclusive doll is adorned in accessories that include black fingerless gloves, sunglasses, black ankle boots and a black leather purse with silver metallic accents.
The Platinum-label Barbie Lagerfeld doll will be available in limited quantities (only 999 dolls will be produced) for approximately $200 USD or €200 Euro through exclusive retail channels including:  select KARL LAGERFELD retail stores, TheBarbieCollection.com, NET-A-PORTER.COM and Colette in Paris.
The worldwide retail launch is set for Monday, September 29, 2014.

Do you think the glasses will be removable? The outfit?
She looks very cute and I am definitely going to try to get one. I don't see a tiny swastika on the jacket. SCNR

Do you think the glasses will be removable?

Je veux les lunettes de Karl!

  2. Love that photo! Excellent selection to promote the doll. When I first heard this one was coming out, I decided that I wanted to try for one. However, given that it is a platinum doll and the press it seems to be receiving, I have a feeling she will go only too quickly.

  3. Love the photo......though Karl does look as plastic as Barbie, which is more than a little creepy.
    As for les lunettes, I'll stick with Wayfarers.
    As always love the blog

  4. I recommend you to watch 'Mademoiselle C', just to see this scene where Lagerfeld is mocked when he is nursing a baby: “How much do you charge for babysitting?”

  5. Of course it is a movie! Thank goodness there was this scene and another ones with the lovable Bruce Webber, because the central character is so despicable that I even wont name her; but you get to see also Linda Evangelista, Stephanie Seymour, male nudity...

    Here's a bluray review:
