Nishikawa Mizuki aka Mizukitty, the number one model for the popular teen magazine“Popteen”, is collaborating with “gonoturn” to produce orginal Mizukitty designed masks.

“gonoturn” is a popular Japanese Mask brand that concepts “Cute and Justice” as their brand motto. Their products are capturing many of the Japanese teens with its unique and original kawaii design masks. To widen their recognition to the world, “gonoturn’ is opening up pop up stores in both Laforet Harajuku and Shibuya 109, the most popular shopping districts for young females.

Mizukitty is beyond thrilled to collaborate with the new and exciting brand, as she stated “Gonoturn is known to design cute masks, and it has been such an honor creating 3 fabulous new mask designs for them!”

Each of Mizukitty’s masks will be released every month starting from this October. The first design will be a checkered, bear shape design. The second will be a one and only collaboration of Mizukitty, Hello Kitty and Gonotan. And the final design will have a print of a toy poodle to look like Mizukitty’s pet dog when wearing the mask.

“ The design of the toy poodle was inspired by my pet. The fluffiness of the mask will be the perfect warmth for this coming winter! I also love how I’ve mixed elements of what I love with Hello Kitty to create a unique design. It’s gonoturn’s first time producing a checkered printed mask, and I think it I’ve created fashionable masks that will suit everyone!”, said Mizukitty when asked about her designs.
