ANATOMY OF A KOKESHI
British artist Becky Kemp’s handmade Japanese- style wooden dolls are basically the ultimate tchotchke for the fashion set. (After all, why buy a Chanel pocketbook when you could have Coco herself in your pocket?) We asked the brush behind Sketch.inc for the deets on these tiny treasures ($85 each, sketchinc.bigcartel.com).
Total time 1 hour 7 minutes
Trickiest part “The brooch—it’s a tiny detail that requires holding your breath and a steady hand.”
What a pair “Karl and Coco
never met in real life, so it’s nice to see them side by side on my workbench.”
Total time 1 hour 25 minutes
The ensemble “Plenty of outfits came and went before I settled on the big red furtrimmed coat.”
