Control Bear Laforet 「コントロールベア キャラクター ラフォーレ原宿」

Control Bear is a concept character from Graniph, a well-known Japanese designed T-Shirts brand.

Control Bear

This cute bear comes with a twist of black humor since he can take off his own head.  Behind this cute and unexpected bear, the artist communicates his message “you control everything, be strong-willed and don’t be controlled by others or just follow what others expect you to do.

Control Bear

I’m not sure about that message but the character is cute and very Tokyoish. The brand offers a wide range of products from T-shirts to stuffed animals, Iphone cases, key chains, tote bags and more.

ちょ〜かわいい!!! ❤
