Ken Arabian Nights is a fashion that was released in 1964.


"Could it be? He wore the unmistakable turban that accented those deep, liquid eyes that have melted thousands of women's hearts. No, it's not Omar Shariff, but Ken doll in his exotic Arabian Nights costume! His gold and white lamé knit pants were gathered vertically on the legs and were topped by a lush red velvet coat with gold braid trim and attached white belt with gold edging. His turban matched his trousers and featured a jewel (an "emerald" encircled with "pearls") between those smoldering eyes. Completing the set were slippers with red velvet uppers, "golden" soles and a full-color theatre program.
