The Grammy-winning legend and one of the world’s bestselling pop-artists, Sir Elton John, has embarked on his last-ever tour; ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’. Celebrating more than 50 years as a musician, Lucie Kaas together with Becky Kemp from Sketch.inc have designed two Elton John kokeshi dolls. A general dogma of the kokeshi collection is the need for its characters to be iconic in their look. Elton John, in his full and colourful career had no shortage of looks for Lucie Kaas to celebrate.
As a music legend, fashion icon, and a great source of inspiration, he is a role model across generations. Elton John has expressed himself through many pop culture hits and through several flamboyant outfits. These humoristic outfits included 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. One, the white feather-covered outfit worn at a PR photoshoot in his home in 1974, the other a pink colored outfit during ‘The Muppet Show’ in 1977.

Brought together with Bravado,
the branding and entertainment licensing leaders, Lucie Kaas is honored to
include Elton John within the kokeshi doll collection celebrating his
phenomenal career, musical impact, and advocacy for change. Fans all over the
world can now include him as a designer collectible in the home and be reminded
of one of the greatest legends within the music industry.
