Lolita Singer Luna Haruna Announces Surprise Solo Live Performance at Most Recent Concert
Tokyo singer and lolita fashion model Luna Haruna finished her premium solo summer concert at SHIBUYA TAKE OFF7 on August 4. The concert title Lupa and Aries no gastronomie was named after her single Lupa to Aries which was released earlier this year in June and is so far only available on streaming services. Haruna performed once in the afternoon and once in the evening with a live band. She performed a total of 28 songs, including some brand new hits.
She launched into her concert with her hit songs Stertear, Kimi Iro Signal, Stella Breeze and Overfly. She then performed her two new fairytale-themed songs Lupa to Aries and Kaiten Mokuba live for the first time.
Afterwards, she turned to her fans and said:
“I challenged myself to something completely new this time. I want to show you all a side of me you have never seen before.”
What the fans heard next was an unexpected surprise.
She announced that she will be performing at Mt.RAINIER HALL SHIBUYA PLEASURE PLEASURE, Tokyo on November 16. The venue, packed with fans, could not contain their excitement, responding to the glorious news with cheers of joy that echoed throughout the entire room.
Her recent release Kaiten Mokuba follows the same fairytale theme as Lupa to Aries. The beautiful harmonies created by the strings pierce through the strong and pressing beat of the song. This gothic fairytale song is appropriately titled Kaiten Mokuba (Carousel) to further emphasise the distorted feeling of being spun around in endless circles. Luna is an artist who represents the lolita scene for lolita fans worldwide. This fairytale video is where her true self comes alive. Her new, mysterious visuals are a fusion of lolita fashion and Alice in Wonderland themes.
Luna Haruna Music Video: Kaiten Mokuba
The head-spinning music video shows Luna in different lolita fashion outfits. Each outfit explores the depths of a different character from Alice in Wonderland. Watch Luna spin her way through five Alice in Wonderland-themed lolita dresses including the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and of course, Alice.
Luna will also be singing the theme song for the upcoming anime film Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend Fine, which will premiere on October 26. This isn’t the first time Luna has been involved in the Saekano anime series. She performed the theme songs Kimi Iro Signal and Stella Breeze, which were the TV anime’s first and second anime openings respectively.
The anime film opening will be written by Miku Sawai, who wrote the lyrics for the TV anime’s first and second ending theme songs Colourful and Sakura Iro Diary respectively. Miku Sawai and Luna Haruna have become massive sensations in the news for their anime hits. Just what kind of chemical reaction will unfold when these two heroines collaborate on the anime film’s opening theme song? Please keep your eyes peeled for future updates.

New ‘Ways of Telling’ Exhibition Unravels People’s Narratives in Artistic Ways
‘Ways of Telling’ Venue Photographer: Kioku Keizo
The Ways of Telling Exhibition is now open at the Shibuya Koen-dori Gallery in Tokyo. The focus of the gallery is to closely inspect how people ‘tell,’ or communicate with others. Human beings often depend on hearing or seeing as ways to get information, but there are many other ways to express thoughts and emotions, from paintings and photography to video creation. The exhibition highlights different attempts to receive and express invisible ‘narratives,’ and visitors will have to rely on their imagination to understand each piece.

Exhibition Space Design – Hideyuki Nakayama Architecture / Photo: Takashi Kato
Eight artists have contributed to the exhibition, each utilizing a wide variety of mediums. Hideyuki Nakayama, the architect behind the exhibition space, wanted to encourage visitors to use their imagination. “A building is a place that has been given a name and a fixed purpose, but I tried not to see it that way. I wanted it to feel like a different place for each guest. I hope that the space will overlap with the underlying purpose of the exhibition, in a way,” he explains.
Bringing together both the seeing and the blind, a special book club was established as a place to discuss each person’s ‘way of seeing’ when it comes to art. In the exhibition space, Rinko Kawauchi’s book Hajimari no Hi, containing images and thoughts captured by blind individuals during the book club, will be displayed in both words and other mediums.
Ways of Telling
Running: October 9, 2021 – December 26, 2021

#GucciGardenArchetypes Exhibition Held for Brands 100th Anniversary, Explores Brands’ Archetypes and Vision
To celebrate the brand’s 100th anniversary, Gucci will be hosting the ‘Gucci Garden Archetypes’ exhibition in Tennozu, Tokyo, between September 23 and October 31. The exhibition reflects the vision, aesthetics, and inclusive philosophies of creative director Alessandro Michele, as shown through advertising campaigns throughout his years in the position.
An Archetype refers to something that many things have been based on, and Gucci’s advertisement campaigns are exactly that – the Archetype to Gucci’s world.
The exhibition features astronauts, aliens, horses, angels, and more motifs that were featured in venues throughout the world, from Tokyo to Los Angeles, and even Paris’ May Revolution in 1968. Visitors are whisked away on a spectacular journey through Alessandro Michele’s kaleidoscopic vision. You will also discover the music, art, journeys, and pop culture that inspired Gucci’s campaigns.
Exhibition director Alessandro Michele spoke, saying “I thought it would be interesting to invite people to join me on this six year journey, experiencing a dazzling world of fantasy and surprises. From there, I decided to create an immersive world that people could jump into through the advertisement campaigns. After all, it is the campaigns that best represent my vision.”
The exhibition is made up of multiple spaces built using cutting-edge technology, sophisticated craftsmen, and innovative interior design. The studio was designed by Archivio Personale, who has transformed Alessandro Michele’s vision into a narrative space.
As you enter the venue, you’ll discover a control room, seemingly behind the scenes of the first exhibition as photos of Michele’s campaigns are projected onto screens. Each room is based on a different theme, connected by aisle to recreate the diverse and wonderful world of Gucci’s campaigns.
The Gucci Beauty room is full of screens at different angles, each showing footage from a lipstick collection campaign with the phrase “for the bold, the bright, and the beautiful.” The room dazzles those entering with the smile of punk singer Dani Miller, which is said to have overturned beautify standards in the cosmetics industry.
The Gucci Bloom room is a floral paradise with its rich, floral scent. This campaign featured actress Dakota Johnson, feminist artist and photographer Petra Collins, and Hari Nef, a transgender actress and model, as the protagonists, each hiding away in an imaginary hidden garden. The three charismatic and unconventional women perfectly reflect Michele’s vision of modern femininity.
The 2018 pre-fall collection campaign paid homage to the young people who participated in Paris’ May 68 movement to mark the 50th anniversary of the event, using graffiti to add depth to the atmosphere.
The room featuring the 2018 Spring/Summer campaign features visuals by Ignashi Monreal, who is known for his elaborate and expressive artwork, covering the walls and ceiling with a giant mural.
The room for the 2016 Fall/Winter collection takes you to Tokyo, using thousands of sequins across the walls to recreate Tokyo, a city that shines even at night. Meanwhile, the 2017 Fall/Winter room will take you all the way to space, with otherworldly creatures, aliens, and astronauts, all introduced in a Natural History Museum inspired diorama style.
The 2018 Fall/Winter room reflects the world of an eccentric collector, with shelves covering the walls from floor to ceiling. There are countless collectors items, with cases of butterflies, cuckoo clocks, colorful plushies, and even a number of Gucci GG Marmont bags. There are even set spaces, such as the 2016 Spring/Summer campaign which was set in the toilets of a 1980’s club in Berlin and the luxurious modern villa from the “Party of a Lifetime” cruise collection campaign in 2020. Head behind the scenes and traverse deeper into this maze-like space, riding the Los Angeles subway to return to Alessandro Michele’s very first campaign in 2015 Fall/Winter.
Lose yourself in the world of Gucci’s advertising campaigns with this immersive space!
