Hello Kitty x Playboy Collaboration at Colette

Hello Kitty x Playboy Collaboration at Colette France

Ooooh-la-la! Kitty-chan is sexy in this collaboration with Playboy! Who would have imagined these two companies working together?

One has been around 40 years, the other for 60 years, but they had never met until now.

This just happened now thanks to colette‘s idea of gathering the two most iconic characters of the world: Hello Kitty, who was born in England on November 1st 1974, and the American Playboy bunny, which was imagined by art director Art Paul for the January 1954 issue of the magazine founded by Hugh Hefner. They got married for the span of one evening and a series of collector items made for colette: Charvet embroidered bow tie, Caron‘s cygnet down powder puff, Sleepy Jones t-shirt and boxer shorts, a pair of Happy SocksYazbukey mirror, Leica C digital camera, X-Mini portable speakers, Beam 2C Xoopar smartphone back-up battery, Case Scenario iPhone 5/5s case, Papelaria paper cupcake and many goodies: Bernard Forever fake tattoos, Haribo mouse marshmallow, Bic lighter and 4-colour pen, Farkel dice set, mug… with custom shopping bags especially for the event!

Kinda cool, right? Check out the beautiful product photos below… The prices in this collaboration ranges from $1.38 USD – $1,269.88 USD. They are available exclusively at Colette. My fave pieces are the mug, mirror and iPhone 5/5S case. =^_^=

Added to My Kittilicious Collection: tokidoki x Hello Kitty Holiday 2012

One of the most kawaii collabos that Sanrio does is the collaboration between tokidoki and Hello Kitty! That sounds like a completely biased statement considering where I work… However, I have strong supportive evidence:

  1. Hello Kitty x tokidoki x 7-Eleven Hong Kong Collectibles!
  2. tokidoki for Hello Kitty Best Friends Collection
  3. tokidoki x Hello Kitty Figures!!
  4. tokidoki x Hello Kitty Plushies, Oh My!
  5. tokidoki for Hello Kitty on gotochikitty.com
  6. tokidoki Fro Hello Kitty 2009!
  7. Things From Mom… tokidoki x Hello Kitty
  8. tokidoki x Hello Kitty
  9. tokidoki For Hello Kitty

If history repeats itself, that means the latest tokidoki x Hello Kitty collection is über kawaii overload!

    

tokidoki x Hello Kitty Leopard Hoodie Plush ($28) features Hello Kitty as a leopard with a removable hoodie. This limited edition plush comes in a pink dust bag… Pretty collectible item, right? I have a couple of plushes from previous collections that came in a similar dust bag (different color).

Awww, Leopard Kitty is winking! n_~

The plush material is super soft! And look at her hang tag! It is a die cut tokidoki diamante sporting Hello Kitty’s signature face (mouthless)…

Side view…

Back detail…

Adios’ face is embroidered on Hello Kitty’s bow – a nice tokidoki touch!

Embroidered pink star on Kitty-chan’s ear…

There goes Kitty’s hoodie…

The leopard has whiskers coming out of the hoodie, as opposed to being sewn onto the hoodie — just wanted to point out that little detail. And yes, Kitty does have eyelashes in this form!

Here is the print detail of the leopard’s heart spots… Lovely, aren’t they?

This would not be a collabo without tokidoki’s heart and cross bones logo! The gold thread embroidery is pretty tight. n___n

There’s that cute hang tag, again!

tokidoki x Hello Kitty Donutella Phone Jack ($6) is a must-have item in my book! *Unless you only have an iPhone 5! x_X But the great thing about this is — you can stick it in your music player or other smartphone — not just for iPhones! The earphone jack mascots come in cute packaging — which shows off the adorable allover pattern featuring some of my fave tokidoki characters: Donutella, Carina, Adios and Ciao Ciao, Siberia…

I love Donutella because she is so sweet! Ears made of donuts! Ahhhh!!! n____n

Actually, she is so adorable that I got jacked when I showed my Momma this weekend! o___O I offered it to her after showing her how cute it looks on her phone… And how it’s good to have as decoration as well as keeping the inside clean.

Frosting on top of her head!

Side view…

Back detail…

tokidoki x Hello Kitty Jeweled Leopard Pentokidoki x Hello Kitty Jeweled Donutella Pen and tokidoki x Hello Kitty Jeweled SANDy Pen are the cutest writing utensils featuring the super cute allover pattern and kawaii Hello Kitty head charms dangling from the top! The pens are available for $8 each.

Hello Kitty is so cute as a pink leopard… And as Donutella… And definitely as SANDy!

Looks great individually…

They all look cute as a group too! n_~

tokidoki x Hello Kitty Jeweled Purse with Chain Strap ($60) is my favorite bag from the entire collection! This is the perfect purse for a night out — very fashionable and flashy — I’m pretty sure I will get many compliments carrying this around. It is too cute not to get any attention, right? n___n The purse features a printed allover pattern on top of black PVC leather with gold details throughout! I am not worried about the print fading because I have the tokidoki x Hello Kitty SANDy Mini Bag and the print has stayed on perfectly!

This purse features the gorgeous allover pattern and has really great hardware details! tokidoki’s heart and cross bones logo emblem sits front and center on the purse. It also features the golden Hello Kitty heads that double as clasps! That detail is an oh-so-clever-way to mix form and function! This is the only purse that has this hardware detail — which makes it special in my eyes!

Here is the back detail…

Top view…

Bottom view… The bottom panel is in a different finish than the rest of the PVC leather on the bag — nice subtle contrast to add more interest to the purse.

Side view… Check out the structure…

The inside is lined with a limited edition black and white pattern that goes along with the overall theme of the Holiday 2012 collection — bling/chains/jewels! *___* There is also a small pocket — I will probably use it for my id and credit card. There is also a printed tokidoki for Hello Kitty patch stitched on the inside.

I love this purse because it is versatile — it has the long gold chain so you can wear it on your shoulder when you feel like it…

The gold chain clips into a hoop too…

Which means you can take the gold chain off completely and use the purse as a clutch!

Also — the purse is made pretty well… Here is a close-up of the print quality — colors are registered perfectly on my bag and the stitching looks very intact!

Über kawaii overload, right!?

All products reviewed were donated to my kittilicious collection. They are available online at tokidoki.it, in-store at tokidoki Melrose location and Santa Monica location, online at Sanrio.com, at select Sanrio Boutiques, and in-store at JapanLA!

Kawaii Hello Kitty Stationery

I love my Hello Kitty stationery. Actually, I love any stationery from Sanrio… Mostly Hello Kitty! n_~ I am always adding to my kawaii stationery stash… And finally made time to take some pix and share with my fellow Junkies! So… Here are my latest additions… n___n

Not really stationery o_O but I did add a very cute Hello Kitty x Friends With You figure to my collection. I LOVE her outfit!! Where can I get a hat like that for my big head? n___n

Plastic Hello Kitty id card holder… I don’t even need this but I fell in love with the design + colors…

Pink leopard Kitty notepad…

Inside detail…

It seems that I cannot resist the stationery items which include die cut characters!

Especially when they are from Sanrio Japan (you can tell by all the Japanese writing)…

Look how cuuute Kitty and Mimmy are!!! @___@

And they have outfits so you can give your friends a little note and dress up Kitty and Mimmy… Reminds me of when I was younger and LOVED playing with my paper dolls…

Cinnamoroll + friends were super adorable too… could not resist…

Try and tell me this is not cute… o___O

Also decided that I can never have too many notepads… So added the Hello Kitty and My Melody ones below…

The front sheet is a plastic material and there are cutouts of paperclips (I will use them as bookmarks tho)…

There is also one sheet of stickers inside the notepad…

And several designs included in the notepad…

After all, variety is the spice of life! n_~

Isn’t it kittitastic to see the old school vintage graphics?

So sweet to see Kitty and Mimmy together!!

I usually stick with collecting Hello Kitty items… But Sanrio is so darn good at making cute stuff! There is no way I can only be a fan of one character! Kitty-chan will always have my heart… But this My Melody design… *Adorbs*

I super love the colors… Here is the page of stickers…

And My Mel and her friends are so kawaii…

Awww… She is sleepy… ZzZzZz…

Hello Kitty origami notepad!

Cute papers inside… Metallics and patterned…

And cute papers to fold…

These are cool because you can write notes to your friends and then fold into something special!

Instructions are in Japanese but there are lots of photos and lines printed onto the papers…

Hello Kitty writing utensils (yup, I said pens — in a fancy way)…

The pink leopard design is cute and I like pens… Good enough reasons to add to my collection, right?

This pen is my fave right now! I actually keep it in my purse because I like using this at work and when I am out (like at the post office or want to write some notes).

The design is kittilicious! And the other amazing thing is the gel grip! So comfy to write with!! n___n

That’s my stationery stash for now… I was able to find all of these goodies at my fave Sanrio shop — Sanrio JVP in Little Tokyo! Thanks for letting me share! =n_n=

Hello Kitty Fun Pattern Collection

Saw this new collection on Nakajima USA… And oh boy! Do I likey! n___n

Strictly going off of the product images, I adore: backpack, coin banks and iPhone 4 case. I hope I can get to Sanrio JVP soon to check out this collection! @____@ The pattern is very fun and super cheerful with all these colors!

Here is the Hello Kitty Fun Pattern lineup…

Waaaaa, kawaii, neh!? @__@ *SO* freakin adorable!! n___n

Sanrio x Re-ment Hello Kitty Colorful Bunny Ice Cream Cones

I am super happy that I finally got my *MUST-HAVE* Hello Kitty Colorful Bunny Ice Cream Cones! And yup, Sanrio x Re-ment is still K-I-L-L-I-N-G me with the cuteness! @___@

Just FYI, these are MUCH cuter in person! n_~

*Sigh* … Now I am hungry for some sweets! n___n

Sanrio x Re-ment Hello Kitty Bunny Ice Cream Cone Pens!

Seriously… Sanrio x Re-ment collections is *K-I-L-L-I-N-G* me!!! When I saw these Hello Kitty Colorful Bunny ice cream cone pen/keychains, I just thought, “OH BOY! I am not even sure *WHAT* the *CUTEST* thing about this set is!” (and usually, I have a pretty good idea)… o___O

Is it the cute colorway? Is it that Kitty-chan is an ice cream cone? Maybe it’s Kitty dressed up as a bunny? Or is it that her bunny ears are made of sweets (biscuits/waffles/cookies)!??? I do not know the answer yet… But the sure thing is that this trio is kittilicously kawaii! For real! n___n

This set will be released on July 7, 2011. It *IS* on my watch list on eBay — about to be pre-ordered because these are total *MUST-HAVE* items for me!

Hello Kitty Prezzies from Idea Network LA Buddies

I was interviewed by Idea Network LA last year and the crew was sooo sweet to me! They totally hooked me up properly with some Hello Kitty sweetness — straight from Japan! *___*

As always, the best gifts seem to be the ones that you have no idea is coming to you! I also love when it comes in a Sanrio bag!!! And possibly, it is even more special because it is the 50th Anniversary themed bag!? n__n

I received a couple of pens *sorry so blurry*

Super cute candy bow wash towel

And what could be in this bag!? @___@

Waaa! Kawaii!!! A Hello Kitty plushie!! =n_n=

I also got a new pair of chopsticks and a tenugui, cloth to wrap the chopsticks in…

Domo arigato Idea Network LA!

I am pretty sure you have already checked out Nakajima USA’s November calendar and took special note of the Day After Thanksgiving sale! I just received an e-mail reminder so I thought I would share with my fellow Junkies!

Just a *few* things from the Hello Kitty Mosaic collection that are on my wish list… n_~

How can I not get one of these pens!? You understand the cuteness value in them, right??? I am mostly feeling the white, purple and pink Kitty headed pens… But I do like the blue one too…

This is not a must-have item for me since I have something very similar… But I am a *sucker* for the cute die cut carrying cases…

Big super soft and cuddly plushie! I believe it is huger than my head! o___O I am supposed to slow down on the plush collection… But how can I help it!?

This sequins coin purse is obviously on my wish list because it is kawaii bling!

I cannot fit into this hooded robe… x___X But just wanna put it out there that if it came in adult size, I would more than likely NEED to own one! n___n

Slippers!!! I wonder if they have them in adult sizes… Hmmm…

I already have a die cut rug like this… So why would I get another one!? You know how it is… Junkies always tend to want multiples of the same thing! o___O Somebody please agree with me so I don’t feel crazy.

I have really wanted this Hello Kitty laundry hamper for a while now… Thinking about having this in my room for months! I am just a little tight on space as it is… Worth it? Should I just get it now and use it later? Decisions… Decisions…

I am keeping my fingers crossed for the Holiday Gifts to be 25% off too! I sure hope Kitty’s bag is big so I can stuff a lot of merch in there!!! @___@
