Kawaii sweets motif
3/Sept/2008 on air
If you are looking for some kawaii confectionery¬†motif¬†accessories¬†or fashion, just go to Harajuku.
Te To Te is a nail chip shop in Harajuku, where they have 400 different designs available¬†and sweets motif is the¬†best selling.¬†¬†Each part costs 30-150yen¬†and they are so popular among¬†high¬†teens. With such nails we cannot even remove contact lenses, but they just don’t care.¬† They use some cotton buds instead.
Sweets accessories originated in Q-POT.¬† The brand has been well known over the country, since it was dealt in Shinjuku Isetan, and since 2007 salon de chocolat in Paris,¬†it opens stores overseas. Working girls in their 20′s and 30′s¬†are the frequent buyer of Q-POT. It’s easy to imagine that having sweets motif¬†goods¬†at hand gives us a feeling of relax and healing.
Q-POT is designed by¬†a man, Mr. Wakamatsu, in love with sweets.¬† His way of thinking is kinda similar to girls,¬†when he says he’d be happy if he¬†can wear kawaii¬†macaroon¬†even after he eats up the real one. (He’s so cute 31 years old!)
