The Be@rbrick world is a fantastical world where colors, characters, brands, artists, and art creatively frolick and flourish. Visitors to the world have included KAWS, BAPE, Jean Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Disney, Star Wars, and many many more. One of the most notable visitors was Coco Chanel, by way of Karl Lagerfeld. In 2006, the Japan-based Medicom Toy Company partnered with Lagerfeld and Chanel to create the 1000% Chanel X Medicom Be@rbrick, which was inspired by the iconic Chanel founder. It was released in an edition of 1000 for the Love Is Big, Love Is Be@rbrick charity which benefitted the Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation.
