Sanrio x 64 Colors Collection Debuts at BoxLunch
Sanrio, the global lifestyle brand best known for beloved Hello Kitty pop icon, has partnered with philanthropic pop-culture gift store BoxLunch to debut a playful offering of apparel, accessories and home goods featuring retro-inspired designs from artist duo 64 Colors.
64 Colors mixes the texture of screen-printing with the smoothness of flat blocks of color to achieve an aesthetic that is all their own, and a perfect complement to the unique graphic style of beloved Sanrio characters Hello Kitty®, Deery-Lou®, My Melody®, Kuromi® and Chococat®. Sanrio and 64 Colors first collaborated at ‘Three Apples', the exhibition in Los Angeles, CA, celebrating Hello Kitty's 35th Anniversary ; this is the first time Sanrio & 64 Colors have developed a collection that will be available to fans of both brands.
Highlights from the Sanrio x 64 Colors women's apparel and accessories assortment include super-soft graphic tees with front and back character detailing, delicate jewelry, and a mini backpack and matching wallet featuring an apple & milk bottle all-over print, from accessories manufacturer, Loungely. The unique and adorable collaboration also includes an assortment of home goods including drinkware, a kawaii vanilla-scented ‘Super Hero Hello Kitty' air freshener, character sticky tabs and milk box notepad, all featuring the artwork of 64 Colors. The Sanrio x 64 Colors collection retails from $7 to $60 USD.
To celebrate the launch, BoxLunch and Sanrio will team up for a fun- filled afternoon at the BoxLunch Irvine Spectrum store in Irvine, CA, on Saturday, July 7 from 12 to 3 PM. Activities include a first look at the collection, limited edition mini posters to the first 100 customers, treats from the Hello Kitty Cafe, and appearance and photo ops with Hello Kitty herself.
