Design by Raf Reyes: Emiko Morikawa, a shy girl, struggles to escape her pop idol image. Lingering pressure from her past as a performer hinders her progress 🔝. As she enters a darker realm, Emiko encounters a distorted virtual reality that blurs fantasy and obsession. The piece delves into the frightening world of celebrity fandom, questioning if Emiko can let go and be true to herself. Her journey mirrors society’s obsession with appearances and our fascination with celebrity culture 🤲🌟.

Slightly loose sleeved, relaxed|boxy fit. Heavyweight 410gsm premium cotton polyester mix blend/strand fabric, made with a super combed cotton blend to achieve the softest handfeel producible. Red satin silk luxe lining all throughout/inside, making the garm slip on and off very easily + SOOOOO COMFY!!!

Interior satin label sewn to leave no stitch marks at the back.
