Aesthetically Pleasing Human: That Poppy

Aesthetically Pleasing Human

Depending on your susceptibility to internet conspiracy theories, That Poppy, or, simply “Poppy” is either a J-Pop culture vulture or a satirical personification of the internet at large. Her short, strange videos typically depict a vacuous Poppy presenting the viewer with specific inquiries using a range of inflection and wording — it’s “Alice in Wonderland” meets ASMR.

Poppy also makes music and is currently touring. Her DC show at the Rock n’ Roll Hotel has already sold out to other weirdos also addicted to her carefully curated digital presence, produced in large part by her equally vacant counterpart, Titanic Sinclair. I should note there is a vague storyline within these shorts which includes a talking mannequin named Charlotte, an emotionally unstable houseplant and Tom Greene (????)

I implore you to save your investigation of Poppy until you have a solid four-five hours to spend in bed — this is one of those internet rabbit holes that will suck you right in. In the meantime, I’d like to dedicate the rest of this post to Poppy’s elaborate Kawaii-meets-Moschino style that is often impeccably executed. Muted hues, bizarre accessories and a true commitment statement embroidery come together to form her sartorial presence. Keep scrolling to see what I mean, then shop it for yourself!
