This year, Hello Kitty turns 35! It’s an amazing achievement for a cat – but nothing is impossible for the world-famous, ever-fashionable Japanese ambassador of cute, Kitty.

La Foret Harajuku, Tokyo’s youth fashion mecca, is celebrating Hello Kitty’s anniversary in a big way. Now through September 23, La Foret Harajuku will wish the Kitty a very happy birthday with special events, as well as a literal rainbow of new and exclusive products.

During the anniversary celebration, 40 popular LaForet brands will debut Hello Kitty goods prominently featuring Kitty’s trademark bow in red (for Friendship), pink (Cute), yellow (Heartful), green (Wish), and lavender (Sweet). The bow can be found on t-shirts, bags, tank and skirt sets, pajamas, dresses, key chains, hats, and more.

  1. I really want those Black Peace Now shirts with the striped long sleeves. :D

  2. this stuff is so cute but can you only buy this in japan?

  3. tokyo

    Most – maybe all – of this stuff is exclusive to LaForet in Tokyo. A few times a year LaForet does these kind of events, where they have many of the shops in the department store create exclusive items on one theme. They did it with some of the same brands for Space Invaders last year.
