TruffleShuffle X Japan: Our Top Kawaii Clothing and Accessories!

If there’s one thing we can say with certainty here at Truffle Towers, it’s that Kawaii clothing and accessories have totally taken the site by storm and is shaping up to become a bigger deal than ever!

Over the last year, maybe even more, we’ve been slowly adding to our collection of Japanese Kawaii inspired designs including some exclusive Studio Ghibli clothing and super popular Polly Pocket bags and accessories. These have all quickly become some of our most-loved items and we’re sure they will be around for a long while yet!

Not in the loop? Originating from Japan, Kawaii (translated as ‘cute’ in Japanese) is a style that follows strong themes from anime and manga and is typically styled as bright, pastel colours promoting innocence and being totally loveable. What’s not to love about that?

Getting ourselves totally stuck into this cult sensation, we’ve created and collected some totally stunning Kawaii merchandise including some of our top picks below. Take a peep!

Exclusive New Gudetama X TruffleShuffle Goodies Now In + Giveaway!

Meet Gudetama, (pronounced goo-deh-tah-mah,) the latest character to join the Sanrio family!

His name is a play on “gude-gude,” which means lazy and “tamago,” or egg in Japanese and sure enough, Gudetama is an egg who, well… seems to lack the energy to do anything much at all. He’s whiny, always has a face of despair and can usually be found sleeping in his shell, curled up in a bacon blanket or taking a nap on a bed of rice. Talk about living the dream!

Already a huge fan favourite around the world, we’re so excited to share our brand new range of merchandise inspired by this deliciously downbeat role model. Because there’s a little bit of Gudetama in all of us right?

Inspired by the lazy eggs trademark poses and ultra lazy approach to life, our range of clothing, mugs, bags and homewares are the perfect way to add a touch of Kawaii cool to your daily life. Our Ladies Gudetama Panels Jumper has already been spotted on the awesome Marzia Bisognin (itsmarziapie!)

To celebrate the launch of our exclusive Gudetama goodies, we couldn’t resist a give-away to welcome this eggstremely adorable character to the site.

Thanks to the lovely folk at Sanrio, we’ve managed to get our hands on one of these brilliant Gudetama Wagging Talking Plush dolls.

Not only is it ridiculously cute but if you squeeze, tap or talk to him, he’ll wiggle and chat.

Plus on top of that, we’ve also managed to get our hands on a box of multi-sensory, magical marshmallows from the amazing Boomf.

And then last but not least, our lucky winner will score £50 to spend on our exclusive range of Gudetama clothing, gifts and home-wares.

Egg-cellent!
