Designer Toys Dolls

About twelve years ago Madeleine Berkhemer and me had an idea about a miniature fashion show. With dolls and Marklin trains and all. Some things don’t happen, and maybe for the best.. Who knows…

But I just bumped into this amazing show by our Dutch heroes Viktor & Rolf in London. So if you’re in London this summer, go and check out their show The House of Viktor & Rolf at the Barbican Art Gallery.

The exhibition is dominated by a gigantic doll house, a graceful three-level structure with Palladian proportions. “We are hoping we have built the largest doll house in the world”, said Rolf Snoeren.

Talking about Dolls, Dolls (Kitano Takeshi, 2002) is one of my favourite movies ever!
