Another week, another Hello Kitty collaboration. Possibly the world’s most famous mouthless feline, she celebrates her celebrity with this limited edition collection with Swarovski. A total of 10 different pieces are available, including the Swarovski + Hello Kitty Minaudiere (shown above) that retails for SGD1180. Pricey? Yes, but let’s not forget it is covered from end to end in crystals, save for the Hello Kitty’s face that’s a piece of varnished leather adorned with black and yellow crystals for the eyes and the nose.
Other leather goods in the collection include a coin purse, a card holder and a bag charm.
As far as jewellery is concerned, you’ll be spoilt for choice with pieces like earrings, charm bracelets, necklaces, rings and the like with prices starting from SGD170 a piece. Love the Swarovski + Hello Kitty Crystal Pendant Necklace that’s sitting pretty on the model? That’s SGD225, by the way.
Still not impressed and looking for something that’s truly one of a kind? Look no further than the Swarovski + Hello Kitty Limited Edition 2011 (does this mean there will be more collaborations next year?), a work of art that has around 19,636 painstakingly hand-applied crystals on its body. Using crystals in different shades to give it that special shimmer, only 88 pieces are available worldwide and it retails for SGD15,000.
Check it out (as well as the rest of the collection) at Swarovski ION Orchard from September 2011 onwards.
