Today the landscapes of fashion and culture are being radically reimagined, fueled largely by a global groundswell of new talent.
In the world of one-of-a-kind dolls (OOAKD), the name Popovy Sisters is writ large. Based in Saint Petersburg, Russia, Ekaterina and Elena Popovy meticulously handcraft hyperreal, posable dolls that combine elements of fantasy, fashion, and fetish. Among their collectors are the couturier Jean Paul Gaultier, Louis Vuitton shoe designer Fabrizio Viti, and Die Antwoord’s Yolandi Visser—who quite resembles a Popovy doll IRL.
Having expanded into fine art photography, video, and 3-D mapping, the sisters hope to transport their otherworldly dolls and art to the City of Angels, which seems a perfect fit. Hollywood is known as a “dream factory.” With a designer collaboration and a coffee-table book in the works, the Popovys are clearly gearing up for world domination. Here, they answer 10 questions for Vogue.
