Life in plastic, we’re told, is fantastic.

Karl Lagerfeld may know a thing about that, now that the designer is the latest edition in Mattel’s Barbie Collector series.

Though, you wouldn’t dare muss this particular Barbie’s hair or clothing. “It’s not everyday that Barbie dresses like the world’s most famous fashion designer,” Kim Culmone, global president of Barbie product design, told Women’s Wear Daily.

According to WWD, Lagerfeld, the Barbie, comes complete with “a tailored black jacket, a white shirt with high collar and skinny black jeans. Accessories are key, including a fat necktie, dark sunglasses and black ankle boots.”

More details to come but we’re sure this isn’t the only big collaboration in the works, as this year marks Barbie’s 55th birthday.

See, we told you life in plastic is fantastic.
