I was checking out UNIQLO’s site and noticed new Hello Kitty printed t-shirts (yes, there are a few that feature the Little Twin Stars and My Melody)! Guess what else I noticed? UNIQLO now lets users shop online — so you do not need to go to UNIQLO to pick up these kawaii tops! This is great mostly for a lot of Junkies who are not in NY or San Francisco!
These short sleeve puff t-shirts are 100% cotton and retail for $19.90 USD and you will be happy to know that UNIQLO will donate a portion of the proceeds from all UT Sanrio merchandise to the United Nations Population Fund, via the Hellosmile Project.
Here are the latest styles…
One last piece of good news: there are some sale items! @____@
Thanks to fellow Junkie *Lauren G*, guess what I found out!? @____@ I would have heard the news sooner or later, but sooner is always great for some kittilicious news like this! Yayayayayay!!! The Hello Kitty x Vans summer 2013 collection is here!
Can you believe the collaboration between Hello Kitty and Vans started only two years ago? (They should have totally linked up way before). As usual, the footwear, apparel and accessories are totes cute! And as always, I have a few things on my wish list (I would say everything is on my wish list but I live in a pretty small apartment and have no storage space at this moment). T___T If only I had Mariah’s walk-in closet! *___*
I love all the designs of the shoes — my only questions are: What happened to the hi top? How about the slip-on? I really love the slip-on — too comfy — I wear mine everywhere! *UPDATE* Vans.com has updated their online shop with more kittilicious products — photos and links added to the bottom of this post!!
All the t-shirts are 3/4 sleeve t-shirts. The fabric is 100% cotton and the sizes run from XS – XL. Each t-shirt is priced out at $19.90 — not bad… I also super love the model image used for this collection — the model is so edgy with her pink mohawk! And look at that make-up! @____@ All that edge and bad-@$$ attitude juxtaposed with dear sweet My Mel! ^___^
Here are the designs:
I just realized that my fave designs are not the ones which strictly feature Kitty-chan! Here are my fave three from this release… Looks like I will be out about $60 if I walk into a UNIQLO store! $__$
Yayayayay!!! Sanrio and Forever 21 are bringing fans another exclusive collection! I’m sure the overwhelming popularity of last year’s collection enabled more kitty-awesome-ness for this year, i.e. more fashionable apparel + accessories at reasonable prices and even kittilicious bedding! ^__^
According to Teen Vogue, this collection will launch November 16, 2012 and the items will be priced between $5 to $30.
I was thinking that the new Vans x Hello Kitty collabo would launch around Back-to-School time… This is one of those times when I am happy to be wrong. n___n
I have a lot to say about this collection… Let me start by stating that I do like this collection better than last year’s collection! There is more variety in the items that are available… And I am head-over-heels-in-love with one of the designs! <3 <3
I freakin’ *LOVE* this pattern on Hello Kitty Authentic Lo-Pro in Black/Red! It’s so bright and colorful… Kitty-chan is sporting a red/white polka dotted bow… there are bears and hearts in the pattern! And you can’t go wrong on black, right!? n_~
A closer look at the pattern!
The soles are pretty plain… I do wish there was some design on the bottom… But I do know that the mold to make a kittitastic design would be costly… which would result in more expensive footwear for the Junkies… But I can always dream, right!? n_~
Close-up detail of my fave design/pattern from the Summer line! @___@ Seriously, if these designs sell well, I hope Sanrio will think about using this design with other products — Loungefly maybe? or Nakajima line of bags/purses/wallets…
You can pre-order now at Sanrio.com or order online at Vans.com… Or if you cannot wait, go to your nearest Sanrio Boutique or Vans location! I see that many Junkies have already scored some of these items! *jelly*!!
*Note: The Hello Kitty Slip-On, Infants is super *adorbs*! I do not have a baby… But I feel like I may need to get one for one of my plushie! o___O
