We're always first in line when it comes to bagging Karl Lagerfeld memorabilia and brilliantly, the fashion legend has given us plenty of opportunities to own a piece of his iconic look. Options already include pillowcases, iPhone covers and of course fingerless leather gloves, allowing Karl copy-cats to emulate the Lagerfeld look head to toe. What's more, Cara Delevingne (aka: new face of Chanel) is often spotted trotting around fashion week with her mini Karl doll in tow and who could forget when the world met Tokidoki Karl?
 
Still can’t get enough? You’re in luck. WWD reports that we will soon be treated to an actual Barbie doll. This autumn, toy giant Mattel Inc will be collaborating with the Chanel designer to create a limited edition doll as part of the Barbie Collector series. Hoorah! Considering Karl is ultra-busy, it's no wonder he's after another clone - and it doesn't get much better than Barbie.
 
Kim Culmone, Global VP of Barbie product design, said, "It’s not everyday that Barbie dresses like the world’s most famous fashion designer.” True story. However, it’s worth noting that the doll will be a limited edition so you'll need to get in there sharpish. Now all we need is a Choupette to match.
