Esquire magazine for gentleman with taste and bottomless pockets, have featured a fashion shoot with Toy Story 3’s Ken. That’s right; a doll dresses better than you.
Clearly this is not really Ken from Toy Story 3, it is Mattel’s actual Ken, immortalised in the film wearing, it has to be said, even cooler clothes than here (wouldn’t you want to be friends with a guy in animal print shorts?).
The brief from Esquire was for four leading fashion designers to dress Ken in key looks for autumn. The finished result is this miniaturised set from their genuine upcoming line. Buy the mag for the full spread, after you’ve checked out our scan of Ken rocking a suede trenchcoat like no mortal man ever could.
