The doll is adorned in accessories that include black fingerless gloves, sunglasses, black ankle boots and a black leather purse with silver metallic accents.
“We couldn’t be more excited about Barbie Lagerfeld – bringing together two of fashion’s most celebrated icons in such a legendary way has been an incredibly rewarding experience for all of us,” said Kim Culmone, Vice President Global Product Design, Barbie. “The doll is a true celebration of both fashion legends.”
