Global lifestyle brand Sanrio and internationally recognised footwear and apparel brand Converse have teamed up to create Hello Kitty x Converse, a collection of footwear, sportswear and accessories for fans of all ages. The collaboration combines two iconic brands that celebrate self-expression and originality. Hello Kitty x Converse will arrive just in time for back-to-school – making its debut on sanrio.com and converse.com as well as global retailers on August 16.
The Hello Kitty x Converse collection fashions three of Converse’s most celebrated silhouettes – the Chuck Taylor All Star, Chuck 70 and One Star – into must have styles for the multi-generational fans of both brands. Sizes are unisex and range from kids to men’s 13. All sneakers have custom designed graphics and logos, polka dot printed lining and come with a second set of laces in an all-over Hello Kitty print.
Highlights from the Hello Kitty x Converse apparel collection include the white and red short sleeve Football Tee with the Hello Kitty Converse graphics on the left chest and red bow on the sleeve; the black Pullover Hoodie with Hello Kitty chenille patch resting on top of a kanga pocket, an oversized bow on the hood and Hello Kitty printed down the sleeve. Accessories include a Phone Pouch for any size phone, with detachable Hello Kitty pins; Mini Duffle Bag in an all over Hello Kitty print and black/red polka dot Cross Body Bag with Hello Kitty accents.
