What happens when you mix Karl Lagerfeld, Barbie with Net a Porter?

999 dolls sold out within a few hours

by 30 September 2014

The limited edition Barbie Lagerfeld, a version of the doll dressed to look like fashion guru Karl Lagerfeld has come and gone.

Not really surprising considering there were only 999 dolls on sale worldwide on Net-a-Porter. It’s not hard to believe that they sold out almost immediately after they went on sale yesterday either.

That’s what happens when you cross Karl Lagerfeld and Barbie with high-fashion retailer Net-A-Porter and create a ‘limited edition’ collectible. Dressed in the German couturier’s signature style, the doll wears a tailored black jacket, white high-collared men’s shirt with French cuffs and black satin cravat finished off with fitted black jeans and adorned in accessories that include black fingerless gloves, black ankle boots and Karl Lagerfeld‘s signature sunglasses.

Sold out everywhere except eBay where it is being RESOLD for anywhere from 900 to 3500 dollars, that’s almost four times the original price.

So if you feel that you can't do without one, eBay might be able to help.
