Kouklita Couture


No, your eyes are not deceiving you. What you see is a miniature replica of my favorite look from the Spring 2010 Proenza Schouler collection, complete with perfectly dip-dyed hair. My lovely friend Andrew Yang has been working on his impressive collection of handmade dolls, The Kouklitas, for over a year. While in the past, most of his dolls are conceived with fantastical background stories rooted in Andrew's somewhat sadistic imagination (Siamese twins, overweight nymphomaniacs, cyclops, etcetera), and given an appropriately dramatic wardrobe to match, Andrew has taken his little ladies back to his own fashion-forward roots with this editorial he did for The Block Magazine. Andrew, who used to work as a designer for Dennis Basso, used his tailoring skills to create these perfect recreations of Spring's most outrageous looks for this new batch of "supermodel" dolls. I love the outfits he chose, especially the creepy Katie Eary number, and the pair of Comme des Garcons girls, complete with tufts of cotton-candy hair. All the dolls will eventually be on sale on his website (outfitted, his dolls average around $600), and if you feel like he missed one of your favorite spring looks, Andrew is always available to make custom dolls and outfits.

Wow, thanks for featuring Andrew Yang's work... maybe one day I'll own one! It seems he took the opposite route of Jason Wu, who, as you know, started out designing dolls but then switched over to designing clothes for real people. In any case, I'm glad he's making these beautiful dolls now!
