Vogue Russia celebrate 10 years in Vogue with designer Matrioshka dolls

Vogue Russia is auctioning off 31 one-of-a-kind designer Matrioshka dolls in celebration of their 10th anniversary this November at their Gala dinner in Moscow.

Also known as a Babushka dool, the Vogue Russia Matrioshka dolls have been given a makeover, complete with a smaller waist, some extra height and some designer ‘clothes’. Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Matthew Williamson, Stella McCartney, Roberto Cavalli and Christopher Bailey were just some of the designers who created dolls for the charity auction that reflected their fashion collections.

Some designers opted for the hand painted detailing, but a few designers took their Matrioshka’s a step further; Giles Deacon gave his doll metal studs (just like his iconic accessories), the Dolce & Gabbana boys studded theirs with black Swarovski crystals, Moschino turned their doll into a light installation, while Miuccia Prada outfitted her Matrioshka with a Prada lace dress.

“Luckily, I did not have to pick a favourite doll, I fell in love with every single one,” said Aliona Doletskaya, Editor in Chief of Vogue Russia. “You, on the other hand, will need to decide, which one of these beauties (or maybe more!) you want to buy and take home with you. It is a tough choice, but any doll you pick, will adorn your home, bring joy to kids and adults, and serve as an elegant confirmation that you are not only a fashion expert, art connoisseur and avid collector, but a person with a big heart.”

If you fall in love with a doll and are not one of the lucky 200 people to be invited to the Gala dinner to place a bid in person, you can register for absentee bidding through the SOVKOM auction house.
