Karl Lagerfeld is getting his own Barbie

Move over, Ken.

Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel's head designer and creative director, is getting his very own Barbie doll, WWD reports. The limited-edition, aptly-named Barbie Lagerfeld will be available this fall.

Barbie Lagerfeld, which will be part of the Barbie Collector series, and will sport Karl Lagerfeld's signature outfit: a fitted black jacket, collared white shirt, and black jeans.

"It's not every day that Barbie dresses like the world's most famous fashion designer," Kim Culmone, global vice president of Barbie product design, told WWD.

WWD notes that the Barbie will come with sunglasses, a necktie, and ankle boots. Sadly, there's no word yet on whether a miniature version of Lagerfeld's famous cat, Choupette, will also be available as an accessory.
