Ceramic figurines – not usually the kind of thing you might expect to find in the pages of Wallpaper*. My girlfirend’s mum’s house, yes, International Style Bibles, no. But look closer. This adorable li’l lady is wearing Louis Vuitton. Bless.

Ceramic figurines – not usually the kind of thing you might expect to find in the pages of Wallpaper*. My girlfirend’s mum’s house, yes, International Style Bibles, no. But look closer. This adorable li’l lady is wearing Louis Vuitton. Bless.

She’s the work of artist Barnaby Barford who specialises in making one-off cermic pieces based on mass-produced or antique figures. “He uses figurines cut and re-stuck together providing a clever way of getting people to look again at something they would on principle have dismissed” according to his website.

Barnaby was commissioned by Wallpaper* to create a fashion story in its November issue, out 11 October.

On the opening spread (below), Barford’s kitsch creations sport outfits by Gucci (on the left) and Dolce & Gabbana (right hand page).

And doesn’t this little lad look lovely in his Missoni sweater (just 480 Euros)?
