Her image can be found on anything you can imagine, from the predictable to the not-so-predictable: surfboards, motor oil, an air purifier, kitchen gadgets, fine jewelry, light bulbs and toilet paper. “You could be born in a Hello Kitty maternity ward,” said Dave Marchi, a spokesman for Sanrio, the Japanese company that created Hello Kitty in 1974.

It’s sort of the Angelina effect,” said Erin Flaherty, beauty and health director for Marie Claire magazine, referring to the lip-endowed Angelina Jolie.

     
  • Kimono’s evolution reflects changing Japan Oct 23, 2014 6:00 AM
    It’s difficult to imagine a more eloquent symbol of Japan than the deceptively simple, T-shaped kimono. Traditional yet ever changing, the kimono has evolved dramatically over the past 150 years. Its story encompasses the evolution of weaving, dyeing and embroidery techniques, as well as Japan’s aesthetic, social and even political history. “Kimono: A Modern History,” on view at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art through Jan. 19, 2015, is a tour de force in textiles.
