I’m so there! Yes, I’ll be wearing my brand-new JapanLA Rilakkuma cardigan, an early Christmas gift from my sweetheart.
On Saturday, December 7, the magical world of Rilakkuma returns to Los Angeles to celebrate Rilakkuma Sparkle Holiday at The Well in downtown Los Angeles.
Join Rilakkuma and friends for the plushest Kawaii event of the year. Created by SAN-X, Rilakkuma is one of Japan’s most popular characters, and this year marks a decade of Rilakkuma’s “bear in relaxed mood” lifestyle of eating, sleeping and listening to music.
Rilakkuma fans of all ages will be treated to an assortment of special surprises, shopping and holiday cheer.
Discover the season’s most sparkling gifts, cute clothing and sought-after stocking stuffers at JapanLA’s pop-up shop at The Well. Curated by Jamie Rivadeneira, the space will be filled with an assortment of delightful Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori treasures including collectible mugs, markers, notebooks, stickers, socks and many more glittering gems for your shopping list.
A fashion show will illuminate the night, featuring Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma as the stars of the show. The event will highlight JapanLA’s adorable new Rilakkuma apparel collection of Bodycon dresses, cozy cardigan sweaters, and colorful spandex leggings. Goody Two Sleeves will release a rainbow of new tops onto the runway and disguise yourself as Rilakkuma or Korilakkuma in Kigurumi Shop’s fluffy fleece onesie costumes.
The Well’s backroom will be transformed into a shimmering Rilakkuma wonderland with a holiday tree centerpiece and kaleidoscope of vibrant Rilakkuma wall projections. Capture the fun at Rilakkuma’s themed photo booth, and experience Rilakkuma’s favorite activity, relaxation, along with The Lolita Girls, sets by DJ Miss Glitter, savory Takoyaki TANOTA and Sushi Pirate food trucks, POPwater, Sapporo Brewery and Kurosawa Sake by Pacific International Liquor, Inc.
