As one of the greatest cinematic minds the world of film has ever known, Quentin Tarantino has delivered many murderous movie masterpieces. A true visionary of violence, bloodshed, and plot twists the likes of which we may never see again. The filmmaker and actor have graced us with his presence in front of and behind the camera in many cult and mainstream classics. To commemorate some of his most acclaimed work and the unforgettable characters in those films, the Quentin Tarantino X Lucie Kaas Kokeshi Doll collaboration immortalizes our favorites.
Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, and Kill Bill taught us that Tarantino not only writes the movies he also rewrites the rules of predictability. The often volatile and violent interactions lead us through an alternate universe where we might imagine a much darker way of life. The characters always keep us involved and entertained. The larger than life characters he creates are far from ordinary, and that makes them a perfect choice for designer Becky Kemp as she grows her line of Japanese inspired collectibles with the newest Lucie Kaas Kokeshi Dolls. Characters from the masterworks Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, and Kill Bill will be transformed into figures inspired by traditional Japanese kokeshi dolls.
Mia Wallace, Vincent Vega, and Jules Winnfield bring the incredibly cool vibe of Pulp Fiction from the big screen to the collector’s shelf. Jackie Brown graces us with her presence as a reminder that she is a total badass and the ultimate player who won’t be played. Tarantino’s most mainstream hit, Kill Bill, is represented by “Black Mamba,” “Cottonmouth,” Gogo Yubari, and “California Mountain Snake”; all one-time members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad and destined to battle in the bloodiest way imaginable.
Tarantino has a knack for developing some of the most visually recognizable characters in film history, and the immediate rush back to those films when seeing the collection of Quentin Tarantino X Lucie Kaas Kokeshi Dolls only confirms that to be accurate. Kemp has been collaborating with Lucie Kaas on hand-printed Japanese kokeshi dolls since 2015. The latest release from the two and Quentin Tarantino will be available at Neiman Marcus and their website.
