Just a littled something that made me smile.
Rubbish Magazine in London is introducing a collection of finger puppets in the shape of famous international fashion figures. There are about 20 puppets, divided into four sets that represent the fashion capitals of the world.
The Paris version:
John Galliano, Karl Lagerfeld, Sonia Rykiel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Alber Elbaz.
And the Milan version (hmmm, not sure what Viktor & Rolf are doing here):
Donatella Versace, Giorgio Armani , Miuccia Prada, Viktor & Rolf, Anna Piaggi.
Well, Karl is a bit bald and the sweater Viktor & Rolf are wearing isn’t very fashionable, but otherwise it’s pure genius! Even Donatella’s skin colour is true to life.
There’s also a London edition (with Giles Deacon, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith and Luella Bartley) and a New York one (with Donna Karan and André Leon Talley). Each set, in a limited edition of 100, costs £ 75 / $120 (……ok, I guess I won’t be giving these to my nieces for their birthdays this year), and will be sold at Liberty of London and Selfridges, and online at fashionablefingerpuppets.com.
