Karl Lagerfeld Doll — by Mattel


From pulp:


From designing and dressing living dolls for Barbie’s 50th birthday in February, to now having his own doll from Mattel [above and below].

The fashion genius and chief designer for Chanel already has his own teddy bear by colossal German brand Steiff. The white alpaca bear in a fitted tuxedo and dark glasses was limited to only 2,500 that were sold by Nieman Marcus in September last year.

Despite claiming that he was never prone to the fluffy things, Lagerfeld purchased one himself for posterity.

As to whether he’ll go so far as to purchase one of his [Mattel] dolls, the couture legend has said, “Nothing scares me more than people with a doll collection. Frightening.”



Calm  down, don't  get your  baggies in a twist — the Karl doll was a one-off, specially made by Mattel for the designer and presented to him two weeks ago at the Barbie 50th anniversary party [above] at Colette in Paris.

The 80's called- they want their clothes back.

Heavens those people look weird. Especially Karl there, he looks like he's in this permanent fashion-pout. Boyfriend there is a close second. The rest look like they are thrilled to be near Karl there and wore outfits they thought would impress him. Yuk.

Consider this an advance order for a Flautist doll Bev. I demand you include replicas of Janie and Laurence however. ;-)

Well, due to the overwhelming demand, I'm working on a Flautist doll. Comes with assortment of threadbare jazz legends t-shirts, blue jeans pockets stuffed with extra-large Kleenex, and sackful of easily lost glasses. Real soon!

Call me crazy, but I cant tell which one is the fake, the big one or the smaller one. They both look plastic
