Karl Lagerfeld Barbie “the day before”

by Dutch Fashion Doll World

Tomorrow it’s the release date for the Karl Lagerfeld Barbie. For a lot of collectors a real must have and one of the coolest dolls this year. Some collectors were already able to preorder this doll at the Karl Lagerfeld Shops a few weeks ago. They have a certificate for the doll that give them the right to pick on up tomorrow in the stores.


Last year there were already some online rumors that Karl Lagerfeld was designing a Barbie doll. On July the 17th this year Women’s Wear Daily had the scoop with the Sketch from the doll by Robert Best.


Short after the release of this Sketch Karl Lagerfeld posted this picture on Instagram and his website.


And the last week pictures of this doll are all over the place.

The official pictures from Barbie Collector:

I think this was the first unofficial picture. Love how it shows her cool box.

But the best picture is this one.


Finally we knew how this dolls looks without her sunglasses.

And here a detailed picture of her outfit.


I love the Karl print of her pants and the mini watch is so much fun.

As a goodie these paper doll version from the doll were send to the press.

But for me the most fun pictures were from the Flickr Tag Game: Karl Who?

Collectors all over the world are creating Karl Lagerfeld inspired dolls and post them on Flickr. Here a few of my favorites.
