Good news, Hello Kitty fans: fashion powerhouse NYLON Magazine is collaborating with Sanrio. This means that new clothes and accessories featuring your favorite characters are about to hit the market, and you’re probably going to want all of them. The collection is a mix of fun, quirky, adorable, and Tumblr-cool vibes. It’s kind of a throwback to younger days of feeling the urge to buy absolutely every piece of Hello Kitty merchandise available (which is, uh, impossible), and the pieces are perfect for summer.
This nine piece collection is launching Tuesday, May 30, so start begging your parents for their credit card number now – or just use your own if you have one, you independent woman, you. The collection includes Hello Kitty, obviously, but it’s not only HK exclusive. It also includes Little Twin Stars, Badtz-Maru, and a new character called Gudetama (which I think is an egg). Even if these names mean nothing to you, you’re going to love the pieces, especially if you were already a fan of everyone’s favorite cartoon cat. They aren’t just cute in a little-kid way, they’re also kind of cool and trendy. This is probably because Sanrio worked with Marissa Smith, the Senior Fashion Market Editor over at NYLON, and anyone who writes about fashion for NYLON is automatically stylish, obviously.
The collection focuses on lots of wearable sportswear and athleisure pieces that are comfortable and fun with a cheeky retro vibe you won’t be able to resist. They’re being sold exclusively at the NYLON Shop online (which features a lot of unique items, if you’ve never looked at it), Sanrio’s website, and in select Sanrio stores. Most of this collection is affordable, too, with prices that range between $29 and $110. Want to get a peak of what’s coming so that you can figure out what you’re gong to buy?
My favorite piece is this insanely cute Gudetama tee that says “not today” and features what my face looks like basically all the time:
This obviously looks great with denim, but you could also dress it up with a cute skirt for something different.
I am extremely into this Gudetama halter:
The low v-neck makes this shirt weirdly sexy for something with the design of a sad egg all over it, but I’m into it.
This matching crop top and skirt set looks like the most comfortable thing ever:
Wear them together or apart! The skirt adds a fun vibe to whatever top you pair it with, while I could see myself living in that crop top all summer.
The Hello Kitty bomber jacket is everything:
Just when you thought bombers couldn’t get more fun, this came out. It’s great for chilly summer nights and to wear throughout fall.
This Little Twin Stars tee is probably the cutest thing in existence.
And can we talk about these Hello Kitty shorts? Because they’re perfect.
It’s hard to see this Little Twin Stars hat, but it’s worth looking at anyway:
Wear this with everything. Also, please try the bold lipstick these girls are rocking.
If you love everything you just saw, get in line. It goes on sale Tuesday, May 30, as a reminder, and it’s definitely not going to be around forever. I know I’ll be snagging the Gudetama tee and the Little Twin Stars hat.
