When I met Gregory and Louis in Paris earlier this year, I knew they were two very special people behind a very special brand. When I came back to Warsaw, I was thinking about a gift for them. I simply wanted to return the favor of inviting me to the press launch of Les Garcons. The gift had to be special and related to fashion but I didn’t want to buy anything. Hand-made personalized Laloushka dolls seemed to be a perfect idea. Marta Hryniak, the doll designer, has done an amazing job recreating the looks of Les Garcons! We have also made a gift for Chantal Thomas, an established lingerie designer, knowing she’s a very close friend of Les Garcons. And so the dolls were couriered off to Paris…
I have just received photos from Gregory, taken during Festival des Jeunes Createurs de Mode de Dinard (International Festival of the Young Fashion Designers). So, here they are – Gregory, Louis and Chantal, holding their very own personalized Laloushka dolls. I think the resemblance is uncanny!
I also received a very personal message from Gregory and Louis, here is an excerpt from it: They are incredible! It is really us! The first time someone made a doll of the both of us. We are very honored! And thanks to Marta for the amazing work.
I thank you, I am truly touched. And, Marta – you’re a star!
