So an awesome buddy actually introduced me to Kyary several months ago, with her crazy viral hit. Somefriends at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo reminded me of just how awesome she is, and now I plan to spend the week hooked on her specific brand of sugar pop.
Quick internet research reveals that while her music is incredibly catchy, Kyary became famous for her style first. I have been so accustomed to label-created Japanese pop monsters, that I was truly surprised by this young ladies drive and originality. Her Harajuku candy coated style is truly of Harajuku itself, and perhaps it is that heartfelt joy that makes her childlike pop farce feel idealistically well intentioned.
Her success in Japan is only increasing, and hopefully Toy Joy will soon have some Kyary-branded goodness on the shelves! (Teaser)
