Hello Kitty at the Hello Kitty Forever launch in Shibuya, Japan on Nov 8
It's almost here! Sanrio has once again teamed up with Forever 21 this holiday season for an exclusive Hello Kitty Forever collection that's set to arrive in stores this Friday, November 16!
Hello Kitty meets Versace?
After last year's successful collaboration (so successful, in fact, I wasn't able to snag anything because it was already sold out), they upped the ante for an even more ambitious collection, that will mark the clothing retailers first foray into the home accessories market. Hello Kitty Forever, which launched last week at a Forever 21 store in Shibuya, Japan, will feature classic Sanrio characters including Hello Kitty, Chococat (holla!), Badtz-Maru, and more, and is fused with bold colors and pop prints to create a series of pieces for those striving to be on the cutting edge of feline fashion.
Hello Kitty Forever features over 110 different styles, ranging in price from $4.80 to $29.80. Selections include women’s apparel, lingerie, swim, shoes, handbags, jewelry (co-designed with Onch Movement), accessories, travel and home, so you can create the house of your dreams -- or of your significant other's nightmares.
I pieced together an array of pictures taken from press releases and Hello Kitty's Facebook page to get a better look at the collection, that's bold in terms of patterns and color, yet stylish and subtle in the placement of the iconic cat. Items will be available online and in-stores starting tomorrow, however based on the experience I had last year, I would encourage you to shop online if there's a specific piece that catches your (cat) fancy.
