Meow! Three Hello Kitty Collabs to Watch Out For This Season
The cat’s out of the bag and she’s taking over the world!
From supermarkets to boutique stores, Hello Kitty seems to be everywhere we turn these days. And these new collaborations (and a first-rate giveaway) prove it! This season, you’ll find everything from makeup palettes to gym gear at major retailers across the country. Maybe we should just get a full body HK tattoo and call it a day…
Hello Kitty fan or not, most gals would happily spend New Year’s Eve in a HK-adorned suite at Hotel Maison 140 in Beverly Hills. Maybe your guy wouldn’t particularly love the idea of opening his eyes to kitty walls and curtains, but if you can keep the theme a secret, so can we! Hurry to Sephora’s Facebook page for your chance to win a 3-night stay for you and one guest in the Hello Kitty Noir Suite and a host of new beauty products The contest ends on November 18, 2011. If you do win, remember your friends at Betty!
Oh, and while you’re at it, be sure to take a peek at Sephora’s brand-new Hello Kitty Noir collection. From nail polishes, perfumes, and shadow palettes to combs, mirrors, and makeup bags, we expect this extensive beauty line to cause a feline frenzy as the holidays approach. The best part? This is no ordinary Hello Kitty merch. In standard Sephora style, our tiny friend was given a fierce makeover that even HK naysayers will be hard pressed to critique.
Prices range from $10 for a bottle of polish to $69 for fragrance, with most items falling mid-range. You can splurge on a tres chic piece (or two!) at Sephora stores or online. Your makeup bag will thank you!
Sanrio’s most popular gal is even getting help from Forever 21. On Friday, November 18, 2011, shoppers will find this cool cat nationwide on the mega retailer’s racks and online. Including everything from women’s apparel and accessories to intimates and hosiery, the Forever 21 for Hello Kitty Exclusive Collection will make any fan purr with delight. Expect lots of sequined numbers, trendy bangles, graphic tees, and even a maxi-dress!
And the price points won’t break your Hello Kitty bank, either! Accessories start at only $3.80, and you can score a haute frock or sweater for under $30. We’re betting that more than a few of these items will score a place on holiday lists this season!
If sequins and frills don’t cut it, you can “Run With Hello Kitty” with the limited edition Asics x Hello Kitty collaboration at select Sanrio stores and online. This cat doesn’t look like she’d ever sweat it out at the gym, but at least she’ll help you look adorable while you’re panting on the treadmill.
With graphic running shoes and Hello Kitty-adorned tanks, capris, hoodies, and arm warmers (believe it) in baby pink and ice blue, you can ditch your drab gym gear and step into a world of cute! Released on November 15, 2011, you can pick up a hooded jacket for $110 or a pair of kicks for $150. The rest of the collection ranges from $25 for a cap to $68 for spandex capri pants. Sure, it’s a bit pricey for something you’re just going to break a sweat in, but clearly, the world simply can’t resist this kitty!
