What does Sephora, Herschel, Converse, Puma and Levi’s all have in common? They’ve all done a collection with Hello Kitty!
I’ve had a thing for Hello Kitty for years now. I don’t what it is about the cute little cat with no mouth, but whenever a brand comes out with a collab with the popular Sanrio character, I just go nuts (and I’m not even a cat person!). In honour of Hello Kitty’s 45th birthday, Levi’s is the newest brand to take a crack at a capsule collection featuring the cutie and it’s super kawaii!
The Hello Kitty X Levi’s collection dropped on August 1 and features a number of items in the line, including jeans, a denim jacket, t-shirts, a fanny pack, and more. In fact, if you’re totally digging the current ’80s and ’90s trends, then you’ll love this.
I received a couple items from the collection and instantly died of cuteness as soon as I opened the package. There’s a few different t-shirts to choose from, but I’m totally into the Levi’s x Hello Kitty Ringer Tee, which is a white t-shirt featuring red bands along the neckline and sleeves, with an image of Hello Kitty holding a Levi’s sign. They also have another tee which is black and features Hello Kitty with her friends standing on top of the Levi’s logo.
Another stand-out item from the collection, and the one I just had to have in my wardrobe, is the Levi’s x Hello Kitty Dad Trucker Jacket (C$148). This oversized denim jacket is one of Levi’s more iconic items and features a fun Hello Kitty twist! On the back there is a giant “Hello Kitty” logo across the back with some patches of HK and her mouse friend on the front. I have another Levi’s denim jacket already from the HBC collection they did a couple years back (or was it last year?) and it’s one of my favourite jackets. I have the Hello Kitty one in a small, but I do recommend sizing down since it fits large (the small is oversized on me). My HBC one is an XS and find it fits perfectly (with even a little room in that one as well).
If you wanted to complete the collection and go Hello Kitty crazy, the brand also released a pair of their iconic denim featuring motifs as well. The Levi’s x Hello Kitty Ribcage Straight Ankle Jeans (C$178) is the brand’s highest high rise pair with a classic straight leg. These special-edition ones feature a red leather patch at the back waist, as well as bow patches on the legs and Hello Kitty and friends patches on the pocket area.
In addition to clothing, the collection also features a bandana, a fanny pack (or as they call it, a “sling”), and a tote.
If you are Hello Kitty crazed like me, then you definitely need to pick up some of these items before they sell out (some already are). Also, Levi’s in other countries have a couple more items as part of the collection, but honestly, the standout for me is definitely the denim jacket since it’s a staple piece with a fun little twist (and totally show-stopping!).
You can find these items in your local Levi’s store, Levi’s online, or Hudson’s Bay. Act quick though, I know this collection is gonna sell out!
Are you planning on picking up any items from the Hello Kitty x Levi’s collection?
