Barbie gets a gothic makeover as Mattel teams up with Karl Lagerfeld for a limited edition dolls to be launched next month. This is not your regular Barbie clad in pretty pink. Expect high-collared crisp white shirt complete with a necktie, black jeans, tailored jacket, sunglasses, and most importantly – his signature fingerless gloves.
Like the Kim Culmone, Global VP of Barbie product design told WWD, “It’s not everyday that Barbie dresses like the world’s most famous designer.”
But it’s not just Karl Lagerfeld who is making headlines, his pet Choupette has its paws outstretched as well. Choupette (Lagerfeld’s cat) has snagged a deal with Shu Uemura a Japanese cosmetic company and will star in their new ad campaign. The new 17-piece collection name after his feline friend and will be called Shupette which is shot by Lagerfeld himself.
Oh, and did we mention Choupette has her own book coming out called Choupette: The Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat?!
