KARL LAGERFELD BARBIE Platinum Label Collector Doll. Karl Lagerfeld Barbie is a Platinum Label collector Barbie designed by Robert Best and created in collaboration with prestigious fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. She was produced in a limited quantity of no more than 999 units.
The doll, appropriately dubbed Barbie Lagerfeld, is dressed up in Lagerfeld's likeness with accents taken from his clothing line of the same name. 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 doll notably featured a completely new face sculpt, made just for her. This face sculpt, later dubbed the Karl Lagerfeld face, has since become the standard face sculpt for collector brand Barbie dolls, replacing the previously used Bob Mackie face sculpt. Being the first doll to debut this new face sculpt, it later became known as the Karl Lagerfeld Face Sculpt, named after her. The doll was originally going to be a more mass produced Gold Label, but Karl Lagerfeld insisted that doll be produced in a more limited quantity as a Platinum Label, as he did not want poor people to be able to afford her - true Karl.
She now remains one of the most expensive and highly sought after collector Barbie dolls. Two small dents on edge of box (see photo) - received in this condition from Net-A- Porter.
