On April 24th, AKB48’s Sashihara Rino (19) made a surprise appearance at Shibuya109 to promote and sell collections from her collaboration brand with Samantha Thavasa, ‘Honey Sassy’.
Sashihara was appointed for the brand’s muse (or image model) back in February. Amongst other image models from famous celebrities to models, such as another AKB48 member Itano Tomomi (20), Sashihara decided to promote her brand with, “In this [collaboration], I created a design for a bag that is easy-to-use, so please use it!” and confidently introduced the feature of her collection.
She also participated as a cashier in this event and said, “I come to Shibuya109 a lot, and it’s a weird feeling to have my own designs lined up in these stores. But I am extremely happy,” and expressed her excitement.
In related news, a CM for Honey Sassy is planned for broadcast on the very same day of her solo debut single, “Soredemo Sukidayo”, on May 2nd.
