In 2010, Barbie® celebrated 30 years of being a global ambassador with the anniversary of the Dolls of the World® Collection. There was even an exhibit held on Ellis Island this summer, highlighting over 50 cultural dolls from the collection. And now this special collection celebrates another major milestone – the very first Ken® doll graces the line!
He’s none other than Japan Ken® doll. Brooding, handsome, and exotic, Japan Ken® doll blends traditional costuming of the ancient Samurai culture with a whimsical and couture edge. His red and black ensemble features a long black silky kimono with red trim, a fashion-inspired Obi (the stylish belt wrapped at his waist), and striking black boots. Of course, a Samurai is nothing without his sword, the Katana. With striking features including a dramatic brow, chiseled cheekbones and a painted goatee, Ken rocks the modern Samurai look!
And Ken is not the only one with a fierce fashion sense combining eastern tradition with modern style. Japan Barbie® doll wears a stunning combination of Japanese costuming with cutting edge fashion flair. She’s dressed in a silky red kimono with printed flowers on the skirt and side panels and cinched at the waist with a white Obi. Stylish golden boots, a gorgeous golden fan, and flowers in her hair complete the look.
