A monochrome suit with a tie, fingerless gloves, sunglasses and a signature white ponytail - this is the outfit of Barbie Lagerfeld, the doll birthed from a collaboration between Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld and Mattel.

The exclusive new doll will go on sale from 29 september during Paris Fashion Week in select Karl Lagerfeld stores, at Colette in Paris and online at thebarbiecollection.com and Net-a-Porter.

No surprise it's doll for serious collectors. Only 999 dolls will be produced, each priced at approximately £160 (€200).

Women's Wear Daily reported the unique Barbie carefully replicates Lagerfeld's iconic style, wearing jeans which "glisten with the jacquard print of the designer’s cameo, while the tailored black jacket has a twill texture, skinny sleeves and glossy lapels".

The doll also wears a white high-collared men’s shirt with French cuffs and a chic black satin cravat.

Previews of the new Barbie - one featuring the doll sitting next to Karl Lagerfeld himself - were shared this week on Barbie's Twitter and Instagram accounts, with the caption: "The first preview of my Paris Fashion Week plans, Barbie Lagerfeld is coming. #pfw #barbie #barbiestyle #BarbieLagerfeld".

Here are three other brilliant Barbie personas:

The Fan Bingbing doll replicates the Chinese actress in every way, dressed in a re-creation of the yellow “Dragon Robe” designed by Laurence Hsu worn by Fan on the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival.

Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds Doll

The Elizabeth Taylor doll was created to capture every detail of the icon where the face sculpt was reviewed and approved by Taylor herself. The dolls wears a white dress, inspired by costumes worn by the actress during Hollywood’s Golden Age.
