Hello Kitty x Dodgers Stadium Exclusives

I was lucky enough to make it to the Dodgers‘ Opening Day a couple of weeks ago — and what’s a trip to Dodger Stadium without Hello Kitty x Dodgers souvenirs!? Here are some stadium exclusives I have added for my kittilicious collection.

Sanrio Hello Kitty x LA Dodgers Stadium Exclusives

I love the Hello Kitty x Dodgers glasses — gotta represent with the blue! These are available for $28 inside the stadium stores or online for $24.99.

Hello Kitty Royal Tee is available at the stadium stores for $36. The design on the front features Hello Kitty thinking about the Dodgers.

I think the size runs a little big. This is a fitted shirt and I am wearing a medium (I usually wear large t-shirts).

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. =^_^=

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Holiday 2013 Collection is Almost Here!

Sanrio and tokidoki (my two all-time fave brands in the whole wide world) have teamed up for a brand spankin’ new limited edition collection! It’s more than just a fun design, this collaboration features a mix of both Sanrio and tokidoki characters. The lineup includes a variety of bags, suitcases, an assortment plushes, t-shirts, coin banks and much more!

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Holiday 2013 Collection Preview

It is the first collection of such a wide range of products to choose from available in U.S. that shines light not only on Kitty-chan + tokidoki characters (SANDy, Donutella, Dolce, Caramelo, Bambu, Sunny Day), but Kitty-chan’s Sanrio buddies too: Keroppi, Tuxedosam, Badtz Maru, My Melody, Little Twin Stars, Cinnamoroll, Pom Pom Purin, Kuromi… I hope I am not forgetting any cuties… Hangyodon! How dare I forget! o___O

It is true, Simone Legno has worked with other Sanrio Characters — remember Sanrio’s 50th Anniversary? But, this collection introduces way more product assortment…

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Holiday 2013 Collection Preview

Anyway, the artwork and design… I have seen the merch in person and it is SO FREAKIN’ KAWAII! It was hard for me to hold my tears in… Yes, *THAT CUTE*! :’) If any of my fellow Junkies know me — they understand how true that statement is! Back to the design… Simone and the Sanrio designers are too good at making things über cute!

The official launch is coming very very VERY SOON! *cross your fingers*

However, if you are a true Junkie, you have already started looking for pictures online since this limited edition collection was first announced on Sanrio.com!

Here are some lovely photos of the products — straight from Simone’s IG

The collection has been rolling out in select stores since last week. This adorably kawaii limited edition collection will be available online at Sanrio.com and tokidoki.it so keep checking the sites — you know I will be all over them! @___@

In the meantime, I wonder what my fellow Junkies are in love with… Are there certain products that instantly caught your eye and it’s a done deal — you *MUST HAVE* them in your life!? What are they?

So far, on my wish list… Pretty much everything! But the things I was drooling over last week (yup, I’m still a sucker for sweet and cuddly plushes and collectible vinyl figures):

Rock ‘n Roll All Nite: KISS x Hello Kitty Rock Out in a Fun New Collabo

Looks like we will be able to get our hands on some KISS x Hello Kitty merch very soon NOW! Yayayayayayay! As some Junkies already know, there have been a few things released before the official Fall launch (a couple of T’s at Hot Topic and some accessories from Claire’s)…

But looks like there is more to come with something-for-everyone selection of bags, jewelry, stationery, plush and of course, more must-have rocker Hello Kitty x KISS t-shirt!!! What tops my wish list? Well, I do have my hands on some small sized plush… My next loves from this collection are the POP vinyl figures! For me — a definite MUST-HAVE! ^___^

Kawaii apparel from Mighty Fine… And the two teaser T’s from Hot Topic…

Some KISS x Hello Kitty things from Claire’s

Here is the official press release:

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

More Hello Kitty Printed T’s at UNIQLO!

Hello Kitty is at it again at UNIQLO! This time,

A range of artists are breathing new life into Hello Kitty, the adorable feline character who has touched the hearts of people throughout the world since her 1974 debut in Japan

This group of printed T’s are more artsy than the first set of T’s that were released. Each T is priced at $19.90 and sizes run from XS – XL… Sill not available online… Wa-wa-wa-waaa T___T

KISS x Hello Kitty Teaser Tees Hit HotTopic.com

Just in case you have not seen the first couple of merch from the much anticipated Hello Kitty x KISS collabo, there are two tees that are now available online! These tees are teasers — the collabo will be in stores later this year… Fall, perhaps? n___n Thank kittyness for teasers — I dunno how some of us Junkies would survive! o___O

Hello Kitty Kiss Army Girls T-Shirt

Hello Kitty Kiss Girls Crop Tank Top — LOVE this one! The graphic is so iconic!! I hope there will be stickers of these faces. n___n

Here are some lifestyle images take from the launch of the KISS Golf Course in Las Vegas… Kawaii, neh? n_~

The über-adorable Julie Doll rockin’ it out!

My recommendation to the Junkies: You need two tees of the same graphic (four tees total for both designs) — one to wear as a regular tee and another to DIY fringe like the models have done!

Hello Kitty Love Bandit by Mighty Fine

The Hello Kitty Love Bandit is here — and it seems that she is stealing everyone’s heart! I know she got mine, has she stolen your heart with this design!? n_~

Mighty Fine actually released these cute tees at the end of last year (yes, I am late on sharing the news) but I saw these back in stock (and a couple of new ones added?) and wanted to share with my fellow Junkies who missed it during the first time around!

Bandit Lineup ($25) womens basic fitted crew neck tee, 100% cotton in vintage gray — definitely my style!

Standing Bandit ($25) womens basic fitted crew neck, 100% cotton, heather red. Kitty-chan is

sneaky like the Hamburglar and the Cookie Crisp bandit…. but so much more kawaii!

You know what’s funny? When I first saw this design, I immediately thought about the Hello Kitty x McDonaldland promo in which my fave plush was Kitty x Hamburglar!

I like Love Bandit Head ($30) too — it’s a loose fit scoop tee that’s made of 100% cotton. It’s awesome that Mighty Fine is: 1. making more fashion tops for us Kitty lovers as opposed to just the basics and 2. the cost isn’t drastically more.

Sitting Love Bandit ($30) womens loose fit cropped tee, 100% cotton, heather gray.

My *fave* top (the one that totally stole my heart) is Hello Kitty Bandit Sac o Love! Love the design on this one SO much! The graphic looks distressed on the burnout material of the fabric, which is 50% poly 50% cotton, and it’s $25, which is the same as the fitted crew neck tee from this line. Kawaii, neh?

These are currently *WEB EXCLUSIVES* so make sure you don’t miss out! Find more Hello Kitty cuteness at Mighty Fine! n__n

Hello Kitty Printed T’s at UNIQLO!

Waaaa!!! Hello Kitty appears on UT T-shirts to launch UNIQLO‘s largest global flagship store in New York City! I hope UNIQLO builds a flagship store in L.A. — especially if they will sell these kawaii Hello Kitty t-shirts! Well, I guess it’s a good thing I can order online if I really *NEED* a t-shirt of two. <– I got too excited for a moment! Actually, UNIQLO USA does not offer e-COMMERCE at this time. T___T So I guess all the Junkies in NY have totally lucked out! I am super *jelly* because I also heard that there were special bags featuring Kitty-chan during the launch event which took place last week!

ALSO, what is so *amazing* about Hello Kitty at UNIQLO is that Kitty-chan is part of a special project, Hellosmile Project,

UNIQLO is a proud supporter of Hellosmile, a project committed to educating people about the prevention of cervical cancer through the sales of T-shirts featuring Hello Kitty, the project’s main character.

Here are the designs featured online — all of them are short sleeve, size runs from S – XL, and each t-shirt is priced at $29.90.

Kawaii, neh? Do any of my NY Junkies want to shop for me? n_~

Mighty Fine x Sanrio Web Exclusives: Steampunk My Melody!

Mighty Fine has been working hard to keep us Junkies supplied with the cutest tees adorned with Kitty-chan and her friends! The latest and greatest features the lovable My Melody! And in a steampunk attire!

This design is obviously super kawaii! (and it totally reminds me of the time I attended a Bday event at The Edison in downtown)… Anyway — really cute + fun!

Steampunk Melody is available in Junior sizes S – XL and you can choose between white or heather grey *both are cute so it might be a tough decision to make* n_~

Yay for Steampunk Melody Mens! Not really sure why, but there are more colorways for the dudes — choose between cream, silver or white. Sizes available: S – XXL.

Both mens + womens tees are 100% cotton and are available exclusively on the web for $25!

And rumor has it — there might be a couple more steampunk designs coming out soon! Make sure to keep your eyes glued on Mighty Fine!

Thanks Nicole! n____n
