Elton John in White Kokeshi Doll by Sketch.inc for Lucie Kaas
The two 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 two look-a-like kokeshis. This Elton in white was inspired by a feather-covered outfit worn at a PR photoshoot in his home in 1974.
