“Huge amount of work is behind each collection. First an idea/emotion is born and we develop a concept of a project.
Then we start preparative work: we learn the history, search for the images, develop the texture, choose the technique and draw sketches. Figure’s gesture, stylization, artistic delivery, and costume design, all of this goes along with one theme to express the idea to the maximum extent.”
This collection was inspired by the game of chess. “Chess is a two-player strategy board game played on a chessboard, a checkered gameboard with 64 squares, it combines art, science, and sport”. Sisters tried to convey the special charm of the game, its aesthetics and atmosphere using their own unique style. This time The Dolls tried themselves as Royal retinue in the form of chess pieces. The whole collection is based on the contrast and geometry. Heavy materials set against light ones and soft silhouette are contrasted to sharp, rigid forms.
A characteristic feature of this collection is a parallel elongation of horizontal lines and material stripes from the costume onto the sleeves. Sisters made a little accent on luxury by implementing massive jewelry, volumetric décor and royal fur in the outfits. The new image includes two different characters – an “albino girl” refined makeup and vivid makeup with thick black eyelashes as the opposite side. The “Albino” makeup includes handmade eyelashes made of mink fur, each eyelash being hand glued to make each doll even more unique.
