There never seems to be any dearth of Hello Kitty items in the world; the famous cute cat has had her face on everything from trains to wine but the fans truly can’t get enough. Italian handbag makers Furla have created a Hello Kitty collection that captures the cutesy pink aesthetic of the cartoon character.
According the brand this collection connects the East and West by bringing the famous Japanese character to a range of iconic Italian bags. The collection features bags, wallets, card cases, key rings, and cosmetic cases in hues like pink, white, red – and the notably: navy blue.
A promotional video reveals Hello Kitty exploring the various regions of Italy from Bologna to Venice and Naples, and the concept carries through to the handbags which feature flowers from Japan and Italy like daisies, hibiscus flowers, cherry blossoms and lotus blooms.
You can choose from a range of cross body bags, pouches, purses and keychains. We love the Metropolis bag in Toni Blu, because the deep navy hue feels non-traditional for Hello Kitty and looks less cutesy than the others. But all things considered, this collection is definitely for those who gravitate towards sweet and adorable accessories and motifs. Given the high demand for Hello Kitty items, these will probably fly of the shelves, so buy now before you have to pay double price on eBay.
