The fresh new idol group FRUITS ZIPPER, created as a part of ASOBISYSTEM’s KAWAII LAB project, is aiming to introduce Japan’s ever-growing idol culture to the world. The producer of the group is model and celebrity Misa Kimura, who is also the general producer of KAWAII LAB. A lover of idols for years, Kimura previously served as the leader of the idol group Musubizm.
The group’s name combines FRUITS, meaning “to bear fruit,” and ZIP, meaning “to give energy.” Under the concept “from Harajuku to the world,” FRUITS ZIPPER will transmit what they call “NEW KAWAII” from Harajuku, an area known for fashion and individuality, to their growing global fanbase.
