Karl Lagerfeld is a doll. Literally. Not too long ago Chanel’s reining creative-man was immortalized as Barbie’s hunky boyfriend Ken, and lest we forget Karl the bear from the Steiff brand in 2008. This time around, he’s gone the Tokidoki route. The Italian label – whose heart is really in Japan – has created a Karl Lagerfeld collectible figure standing high at a whooping 10 inches tall. Our dear Karl will be sold during the holidays exclusively at select stores and within Tokidoki’s flagship locations of New York, Milan and Los Angeles. Only 1000 will be made, so get ‘em while they’re hot. If you can’t get your hands on The K collection by Karl Lagerfeld come Christmas, don’t fret; t-shirts are already in the works for next spring.
