Introducing KISS x Hello Kitty Two Unlikely Partners Rock Out in a Fun New Collaboration

“The hottest band in the world” meets the queen of supercute when iconic rock band KISS headlines with Sanrio Inc. and global icon Hello Kitty for an unexpectedly cute collaboration.  The Hello Kitty x KISS collection offers a mix of co-branded products that will appeal to fans of all ages, and will make its premiere in retail outlets nationwide in October, 2012.

“KISS and Hello Kitty Rocks. Over the past 40 years we have watched proudly as The KISS Army has crossed and come to include all generations and demographics. This co-branding is trailblazing and we have all been very excited about the collaboration of our 2 iconic brands from the beginning,” said Paul Stanley lead singer and co-founder of KISS.

“The collaboration between two very different iconic brands offers something unique an unexpected for fans of KISS and Hello Kitty”, says Janet Hsu, COO of Sanrio, Inc. “This is a collection of two unique and timeless icons that appeals to fans of all ages.

The ‘70s-era ‘classic’ KISS retro collection is ablaze with unexpected fun, including Hello Kitty taking on the classic KISS profiles. The younger set will love the supercute styling of the t-shirts and accessories, while adults will find the nostalgia pulling on their inner guitar strings. Two rock star Hello Kitty x KISS  t-shirt designs have been in Hot Topic stores and online since April as a teaser for the Fall collection launch which will include a something-for-everyone selection of bags, jewelry,  stationery, plush and of course, more must-have rocker Hello Kitty x KISS t-shirts.

Two overarching themes will include “Rock ‘N’ Roll / Rock Mood,” and “1976 destroyer / Street Mood.”  Each collection will be available at specialty retailers, including Hot Topic, and Claire’s, Sanrio.com and select Sanrio boutique stores.

The fun and quirky collaboration synchs with both KISS and Sanrio’s other buzz-worthy brand pairings, taking partnerships to the next level with a brand mash-up that will have crossover collector appeal.

Thank you Cinthya. n_n

Added to My Kittilicious Collection: Hello Kitty Head of the Class from Sephora

Oh boy! I recently added the Hello Kitty Head of the Class products to my kittilicious collection! *___* Who knew these cute items would make me miss school! o___O

I bet all the Junkies have already watched Sephora’s Hello Kitty Head of the Class Makeup Collection, but check it out again!

The 3-piece brush set is super adorbs — look at the Hello Kitty charms!

Detail shot! @___@

Head of the Class Bag is the purrr-fect makeup/pencil pouch to use when you go back-2-school! Geeky-chic? Adorably preppy? Whatever the style is — it is beautiful to me! n___n I love the black and white houndstooth pattern — totally classic!

This pouch features a cute embroidered nerdy Kitty face –@-@–

The zipper pull is Kitty-chan’s bow… The pouch also features red piping detail…

The inside of the pouch is lined with a different fabric and has a cute embossed pearly-pleathery rectangle sewn on…

Gold Bow Mirror Necklace… The kittitastic thing about this is that it is a cute fashion piece…

And a useful mirror that you do not have to carry around in your purse. So functional, isn’t it?

Nail Art Stickers… It is sweet that there are so many stickers in a pack — you can either do your nails a few times or share with a friend!

Head Of The Class Palettes + Compact Mirrors

I really adore the design on the packaging and the products…

The pink/white/gray colorway is so soft and feminine… And the bow is a fuzzy texture!

I love the houndstooth pattern because it is so classic — but I believe argyle pattern is just as classic!

This red/pink colorway plays a surprising twist on such a classic pattern.

And the nerdy glasses… How can you resist such a spectacle? n_~

Great eyeshadow color palette…

And can you believe the blush has the houndstooth pattern on it??

Kawaii, neh!?

One of my favorite colorways ever has to be the combination of black, white and a punch of red… Just like the packaging for black and white Head Of The Class Palette!

Top detail…

This is my single favorite item from the Head of the Class collection!

I usually wear more neutral shades (browns) but I am looking forward to wearing these colors on my next outing! Can any Junkie recommend a good tutorial for me? n_n

Side view… And I really like the fuzzy red bow…

Cuteness for sure!

Again, Sephora does a beautiful job with the packaging and as well as the product design! That can be a good + bad thing! Good — because who doesn’t love beautiful design? Bad — because then I have to keep everything — like a hoarder. o____O

Hello Kitty Head of the Class products are available online and at Sephora stores! ^__^
