Paris: Colette Go Crazy For Plastic Ken

Every time I go to Paris, one of my highlights has to be the Colette window display. Last year, it was an amazing super heroes celebrating DC Comics and this time round it was all about Ken Carson turning 50.

In collaboration with Cassette Playa, this window is like a mini exhibition as it features a display of Ken archive dolls spanning six decades, one of my favourite has to be Totally Hair Ken from 1992, it is the purple trousers and white shoes – very trendy!!

CP X Ken capsule collection features Cassette Playa’s signature oversized digital print silk t-shirts, pants and shorts, featuring printed 3D fold Ken torsos, roses, as well as text message and BBM symbols. My favourite piece of the collection has to be the Merino wool embroidered cricket sweaters, go for either white with blue and red stripes, or my personal fav the black teamed with red and blue stripes, yours for €240.

Don’t worry not all the pieces in the Ken shop are expensive, why not pick up this limited-edition Cassette Playa keyring, €15.
