UNIQLO x Hello Kitty 50th Anniversary
It’s not hard to tell Hello Kitty is a well-loved character, especially when brands like McDonald’s and Crocs release exclusive collaborations to celebrate her 50th anniversary. Joining the festivities is UNIQLO, which is set to drop a ’70s-themed UT collection on 25 March 2024, featuring Hello Kitty and her friends dressed up like her.
Fun fact: Hello Kitty was born in 1974, which is perhaps why UNIQLO is paying tribute to the ‘70s fashion trend in this collection. The Hello Kitty T-shirt in navy greets us with an outline of the Japanese cat in her signature dungarees, along with her name in a swirly font overlaid with a tie-dye gradient.
Hello Kitty fans who are also minimalists will adore the Hello Kitty T-shirt in dark grey. It features a small embroidery of Hello Kitty sitting on the front of the T-shirt, showcasing her adorable charm.
If pastels suit your aesthetic, the Cinnamoroll T-shirt in light blue might pique your interest. On the front, Cinnamoroll pays homage to Hello Kitty by sporting her iconic dungarees. And on the back, you’ll find a motif of the puppy peeking out alongside her name.
Kuromi is like that one friend who appears tough on the outside, but is a softie on the inside. She appears in this collection on the purple Kuromi T-shirt, featuring an outline of her and her name on the front, and a silhouette of her on the back with a tie-dye overlay.
If your wardrobe mainly consists of monochrome apparel, it doesn’t hurt to have the Kuromi T-shirt in white as your newest addition. The simple design features an outline of Kuromi in Hello Kitty’s dungarees, making it a versatile top to style.
Each T-shirt retails at $19.90.
