Most Wanted: Pylones Babushka Dolls

Published November 15, 2011

We direct those already planning stocking stuffers to Pylones’ delightful take on the Russian nesting doll, now available at The Lake and Stars’ kitschy-chic BOFFO pop-up. Be forewarned, however: this is not your babushka’s matryoshka. Pylones’ painted lady not only gets progressively smaller as one un-nests, she also gets…well, slowly undressed—and, true Russian down to the teeniest buff, this coy zhenshchina doesn’t drop her cigarette ’til the very last. Bright, irreverent, and playful, this strip-tease set is a perfect parlor room tchotchke for those tall enough to ride. Priced at $30 at The Lake and Stars BOFFO pop-up (through Nov. 23) and online at Pylones.
