Elton John transformed into kokeshi dolls

Lucie Kaas launches official collaboration as iconic artist embarks on his final tour.

As Sir Elton John embarks on his last ever tour – and with biopic Rocketman charming cinema audiences – Lucie Kaas and Becky Kemp from Sketch.inc have designed two special kokeshi dolls inspired by the Grammy-winning legend.

A general dogma of the kokeshi collection is the need for its characters to be iconic in their look – and the designers certainly had plenty of looks from which to take inspiration.

Elton John has expressed himself through many pop culture hits and through several flamboyant outfits. These outfits included colours, sequins, feather boas, capes, hats and glasses.

In collaboration with Elton, these have been interpreted, forming the two look-a-like kokeshis. One, the white feather-covered outfit worn at a PR photoshoot in his home in 1974, the other a pink-coloured outfit during The Muppet Show in 1977.

Lucie Kaas worked with Bravado on the collaboration, with the dolls available from this month.
