High Society Art Dolls by Alexandra Koukinova
Exquisitely detailed brocade patterning and rich costume fabrics are joined together in these elegant art dolls by Russian artisan Alexandra Koukinova.
These ladies have been attired in striking early art deco fashion style, something you’ll hardly expect to encounter these days! The look gives me a strong nostalgic feeling, similar to the kind you get when you see old black and white films with flickering noise and a staccato framerate.
Alas, the male fashion of that period appears to be of the more mundane suit and optional hat variety, which leaves the exhibition here exclusive to the fairer sex. One final note – the source for the specimens featured here is not readily apparent, but you can find their section tucked away in the Museum section
