Karl Lagerfeld gets his own doll
If the bear wasn't enough to bring you closer to Karl Lagerfeld, now you can buy your very own Karl doll.
Artist Simone Legno has immortilized the designer in vinyl for Tokidoki, the Italian maker of Japanese-inspired collectible figurines.
The doll, which stands at 10-inches tall, comes decked out in a skinny black suit, rhinestone-studded tie and belt, and of course, Lagerfeld's signature sunglasses - all from his K Karl Lagerfeld Collection.
Only 1,000 figurines will be created. They will be priced at roughly $190, and will be distributed at Tokidoki flagship stores in New York, Milan and Los Angeles, as well as in specialty stores for holiday retailing. Colette will be getting the exclusive launch next month.
The mini Karl will also appear on t-shirts in next spring's K collection.
