Mattel Launching Limited-Edition Barbie Lagerfeld Doll

Karl Lagerfeld's latest collaboration involves what must be the world's smallest pair of fingerless gloves.

DOLL HOUSE: Karl Lagerfeld’s latest collaboration involves what must be the world’s smallest pair of fingerless gloves. They’re to fit the dainty hands of Barbie Lagerfeld, a limited-edition doll being launched this fall by American toy giant Mattel Inc. and the iconic, Paris-based designer.

Part of the Barbie Collector series, the doll is dressed according to the German couturier’s custom: in a tailored black jacket, a white shirt with a high collar and skinny black jeans. Accessories are key, including a fat necktie, dark sunglasses and black ankle boots.

Commented Kim Culmone, global vice president of Barbie product design: “It’s not everyday that Barbie dresses like the world’s most famous fashion designer.”

The outfit also recalls items in the women’s Karl Lagerfeld collection, hinged on the namesake designer’s graphic, rock ’n’ roll-influenced style.

Additional details about the figurine and its distribution are to be released at a later date. Mattel is marking Barbie’s 55th birthday this year.
