Over the last decade, Lena and Katya Popovy’s unique dolls have captivated the fashion and art world. The identical twin sisters are based in St. Petersburg, Russia, where they work together to craft each and every doll by hand. With high profile collectors including Louis Vuitton and Jean-Paul Gaultier, over the years the dolls have acquired cult status as highly coveted, sculptural art objects.

We captured the duo in action at their studio, and documented the mesmerising artistry behind the creation of each doll.
