Elton USA Kokeshi Doll by Sketch.inc for Lucie Kaas
The three show-stopping kokeshi versions of Elton John were designed by Sketch.inc and Lucie Kaas in collaboration with the icon himself. The dolls are part of the celebration of his final tour ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ as well as the biopic film ‘Rocketman’. A general feature of the Lucie Kaas kokeshi collection is the iconic look of its selected characters. Elton John, in his full and colorful career has had no shortage of looks to celebrate! His flamboyant outfits have included bright colors, sequins, feather boas, capes, hats and glasses, which have surprised fans time after time. In collaboration with Elton John, these outfits have been interpreted, forming the three look-a-like kokeshis.
During his 1976 performance in Earls Court, London on the Louder Than Concorde Tour, Elton John's outfit represented the American flag. A showpiece, the costume was full of character, just like Elton, and perfectly illustrated his creative and artistic brilliance.
