Ken Joins the Party


This is a perfect follow up to many a post that I've written about brand Barbie, including her take on diversity, body types, and fashion. The brand generates fanfare with every move.

Well now her boyfriend Ken is joining the party with an expanded line that shows much more diversity in terms of ethnic background, body types, and yes also fashion. Including a man bun.



There are now fifteen different adaptations of Ken including seven skin tones (with hair styles to boot), three body types (slim, broad, original), and styles that range from business casual to street
wise.


I've always been a big fan of the brand...and it's wonderful to see it expand its diversity voice to men too.

What's your experience? JIM
