Kokeshi, but make it Marni

Harvey Nichols reached out to Lucie Kaas in the beginning of 2019 as they were interested in a customized, limited edition of the hand painted, Japanese inspired kokeshi dolls. The department store approached several fashion designers such as Francesco Risso from Marni, Mira Mikati, RED Valentino, MM6, Paul Smith and many more all keen to design a kokeshi version of their brand. The dolls were created for a store opening in Hong Kong in Pacific Place in September, when Harvey Nichols launched the campaign Shape the Future of Fashion with Harvey Nichols. The fashion designers themselves participated in the creation and design process of their kokeshi dolls. Marni’s Creative Director, Fransesco Risso, chose to design the Marni doll inspired by his own outfit at the Marni Fall/Winter 19 show in Milan and the Lebanese-French designer, Mira Mikati, wanted her doll to wear an outfit with her iconic sun doodle print.
