Sneaker collabs just keep getting better. The latest exciting street drop brings together the popular star Hello Kitty and the cult sneaker brand Converse. The brand will release a Hello Kitty footwear and apparel collection that will make your inner child smile from ear to ear. The cartoon character makes an appearance on a variety of pieces, making this collection a real treat for all Hello Kitty obsessives.
The world’s famous brand Hello Kitty has teamed up with the independent graphic and illustration label Lazy Oaf for a limited capsule collection. Both brands are known for their cute, childish designs. Hello Kitty is popular among the little girls and the adults. The Lazy Oaf is known for their fun designs inspired by the Japanese popular culture. The collaboration was a true pleasure for the Lazy Oaf’s Founder Gemma Schiel because she is a huge fan of Hello Kitty.
The 16-piece limited capsule collection is an astonishing mix of cute girly designs in an adult version. If you thought that you are too old to wear Hello Kitty, this collection will change your mind.
The baby pink color that is every girl’s favorite plays the main role in the collection. One of the most adorable pieces in this line is the frilly denim jacket with cute ruffles on each sleeve. The signature pink Hello Kitty bow is embroidered on the pockets on each side.
Lazy Oaf designed the cutest heart shaped pocket bag with the Hello Kitty logo embroidered in the center of the bag. The lovely bag will look perfect paired with the baby pink frilly denim jacket.
Denim is definitely the main fabric in the collection. The adorable denim pinny dress has a massive pocket on the front with a pretty Hello Kitty embroidery. The super cute adjustable straps with interesting prints are the most noticeable detail in this design.
Speaking of denim, fans of Hello Kitty definitely won’t be able to resist the white A-line denim skirt with Hello Kitty’s face all over the front part of the skirt.
The collection is not all about cute pink stuff. The Hello Kitty x Lazy Oaf Collection includes a pair of bow Gingham trousers reserved for the coolest gals.
The brand Lazy Oaf has multiple fun pieces to offer. Their cool sweaters that carry interesting messages are one of the most eye-catchy designs. There is a multicolored oversized sweater with big black letters that say “Boring’ embroidered on the back as well as pastel blue one with the phrase “Problem Child’ also embroidered on the back.
The collection drops on June 15 and will be available for purchase in stores and at the Lazy Oaf’s website. The prices aren’t cheap but at least you know that you would be the only one in the room wearing these fun, unique designs.

Hello, Hello Kitty, play with us today‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë¬¨‚àÇ. It certainly is a sunny day in Hello Kitty land and we are ecstatic to hear the latest news about the brand and OPI joining forces to bring us nail lacquers that are worthy of being placed on our nails. The funniest part is that we can find every last shade of pink imaginable in the OPI x Hello Kitty 2016 nail polish collection along with a few other much needed hues. Fabulous beauty collections are a dime a dozen of late but we cannot help but turn our heads towards anything Hello Kitty, and when that involves OPI, our interest is most definitely piqued.
The line has 8 different shades of pink, the most adorable one launched to date. We are obsessed with all things Hello Kitty and are certainly not the only ones. Her favorite colors will be used to decorate our nails come January 2016 and we simply cannot stand the excitement. There are 12 limited edition lacquers in the line-up, along with their matching gel shades, the bottle tops expected to be covered with her adorable kitty face that has made so many a childhood happier and more loving. It will certainly stand out from the rest of the lacquers stored in your drawers!
There are a whole lot of the Hello Kitty merchandise on the markets. There are even stores dedicated to the brand and nothing more, stores full of costumers we notice day in and day out. The lacquers are to be available for $10 USD, making them affordable yet still desirable. The colors are gorgeous as we have noticed, but what will really make you ooh and ah are the names of each hue that you can choose from: these include everything from “You Can Never Have Too Many Friends’ to “Small Plus Cute’ slogans that really make us yearn for more.
They will be available in January in Ulta, so you have a good amount of time to figure out which colors fit you best. Of course, if you are like us, you will want to spend $120 and grab them all, adorable cat tops and all. It will certainly bring a smile to your face on the days that you are feeling down!
