Let's face it: Fashion can sometimes be serious stuff. Solemn runway shows, epochal analysis, and buy-or-die demands turn even the most whimsical design into a humorless creation. Luckily, a few major players in the fashion world noticed the lack of frivolity circulating and reached into their toy boxes to do something about it, including Tokidoki who just immortalized serial-sourpuss Karl Lagerfeld in figurine form. So, from the beastly stuffed animals at Rick Owens to Jason Wu's show-stopping dolls, here are some playthings you might want to collect to remind yourself of fashion's softer side. Now, turn that frown upside-down, Karl—you've been Tokidoki-fied!
