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.

London Fashion Week starts tomorrow, and I am super excited as I love the drama and the beauty of a runway show, well this season just got better as Barbie’s boyfriend Ken is sponsoring the Cassettte Playa show. All part of Ken’s 50th anniversary, Cassette Playa are collaborating on a CP X Ken capsule collection, which will launch exclusively at colette in Paris during Fashion Week, several pieces of which will also feature in the London show.

How amazing does that sound. Not one normally for menwear catwalk shows, but come on maybe Ken might be

” Ken is the ultimate boyfriend – my ultimate boyfriend is fearless and intelligent, and has individual style; a warrior!.  I wanted to celebrate Ken’s history, while showing another side to him that maybe hasn’t been seen before.  Every girl loves a bad boy – even Barbie!” Carri from Cassette Playa

I am loving how Ken is so into fashion, last week he unveiled six designer looks during New York Fashion Week, and I think this is going to be one special collaboration with Cassette Playa – just look at golden Ken below.
