Mattel is giving Barbie a high fashion update, outfitting her in the style of fashion industry overlord Karl Lagerfeld. The toy company will unveil a limited-edition doll this fall as part of its Collector Series. Mattel decked out classic Barbie in Karl’s uniform: a pair of black skinnies, white collared blouse, black jacket, ankle boots, tie, sunglasses and, of course, Lagerfeld’s signature fingerless gloves.

This isn’t Lagerfeld’s first time working with Mattel. The designer was tapped to dress Barbie for her 50th Anniversary celebration. He devised a series of looks that were displayed at the Colette boutique in Paris, even outfitting her in a Chanel suit. 

For fashion-minded Barbie collectors, this doll is the perfect addition to their horde. For kids who actually play with dolls, this is just another opportunity to chew on sweet, delicious Barbie feet–and another makeout partner for Ken.
