Karl Lagerfeld Barbie “the day before”

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.

Dolce & Gabbana dolls

Today Dolce & Gabbana presented their Spring Summer 2015 collection. A friend of my was at the show and she texted me that the models were carrying Barbie dolls !

After some searching on the net I found the 3 models that were showing the dolls. But from a wrong angle …


On Instragram I saw the first closeup of one of the dolls.

Schermafbeelding 2014-09-21 om 18.08.34

Mhh she don’t look like a Barbie.

Finally Style.com posted some detailed pictures from the looks and yes they had pictures from two of the dolls.



Definitely no Barbie dolls but I do like them. They remind me of the Mdvanii dolls from the 90ties.

I love it that they represent the looks of the catwalk. And that miniature bag is so cool. I can’t wait to find out more about these fashion dolls.

First the Karl Lagerfeld Barbie ,yesterday the Moschino Barbie doll and now these Dolce Gabbana dolls.

It’s seems like a doll is going to be the must have accessory for the new season.
