Another Japanese phenomenon, Licca Dolls can be down to earth and sweet… or they can come encrusted with real diamonds for a mere US$975. Meet what must be one of the most expensive dolls of all time – the ‘Licca-Chan’ (below). Couture is also scaled down by Issey Miyake with his immaculate ‘Pleats Please’ Licca (above), in honour of his fabulously folded collection of the same name.
Don’t worry, if Licca has caught your eye there are plenty of girls who are more frugally priced. Blondes, brunettes, redheads – just pick a hair colour and an outfit and join the growing dolly world.
Flickr has a wonderful selection of Licca images from collectors the world over. Or you can source a Licca Doll on eBay or from specialty online retailers.
