Hello Kitty 35th Anniversary at On Pedder

Most of you by now would know who Hello Kitty is

Hello Kitty is one of the best-known fictional characters produced by Sanrio.
Designed by Ikuko Shimizu, the first Hello Kitty product, a vinyl coin purse, was introduced in Japan in 1974 and in the United States in 1976.
This simply drawn animated character has grown to become one of the world’s most identifiable brands.

This sought-after feline with her trademark bow, has through the years worked with many artists and designers in the worlds of design, art and fashion.

And now for all you Hello Kitty fans !

On Pedder, the Hong Kong-based designer accessories boutique, has partnered with Sanrio and Hong Kong-based creative agency AllRightsReserved for this ground-breaking project.

Launching an exclusive capsule collection by some of the industry’s most exciting accessory designers which is due to launch this Fall Winter season.

Many established and cutting-edge designers were commissioned for the Hello Kitty project, partnering brands include American Apparel, Anne-Claire Petit, Bugaboo, Casio, Christophe Coppens, Havaianas, Judith Leiber, Les Bijoux de Sophie, Linda Farrow, Milk on the Rocks, Repetto and Vabene.

I believe some of these names do ring a bell in your head.

On Pedder

The full collection is going to be unveiled for the first time at the On Pedder Takashimaya Shopping Centre,Singapore on 17 September 2009.
It will be open to the public and items will be available for purchase on the launch date itself.

I love this whole collection !! Really girly and feminine. The details in the Hello Kitty added to each product is all nicely crafted out and matches it item perfectly.

Bring your friends,family or your children down ! There's somthing for everyone :)
