Hello KittyHello Kitty

She is 5 apples tall, love making cakes, and collect all the little cute things. She has lovely parents and lots of friends, with whom she loves to play and cycling. Her name is Kitty White and she capsized the heart of the fashion world…

The famous little white cat was born in 1974 in the Sanrio company, Japanese company specializing in creating cute characters that illustrate children’s products. It is the designer Ikuko Shimizu who draws it, and it is far to imagine that Kitty will become a fashion icon.

Kitty is seen giving a British pedigree because British culture was popular with Japanese girls at the time. Its name comes from a cat from Alice in the famous novel by Lewis Carroll, “Through the Looking-Glass.” However, it is part of Japanese heritage since its design is inspired by the “Maneki Neko” (“cat beckoned to the hand”), cats bring good luck in popular belief.

The little character was originally reserved for a very young audience. The first product bearing the image of Hello Kitty was a small vinyl purse, but the kitten we saw also appear on toys, pens and other gadgets.

In 1976, Hello Kitty is a registered trademark, and Sanrio gradually built a whole world to the character. We see in situations increasingly diverse: flying a plane, on a dolphin, doing sports … Similarly, Kitty’s parents are appearing and his grandparents, and a gaggle of friends and pets. With all these people, the cat can make his first appearance on the screen: in 1981 released the film “Kitty and Myrtle’s new umbrella” followed in 1988 of the television cartoon “Hello Kitty’s Fairy Tale Theater”.

Thus, gradually, it becomes popular. The young and old are affected by good humor and joy of life it conveys, and some say that its success is linked to a detail well thought its lack of mouth. One can thus give it its joys and sorrows of the moment, and it becomes a “sympathetic” character, which shares our emotions.

In the early 2000s Kitty reaches the level it is today, when the fashion Kawai ( “cute” in Japanese) takes possession of the European streets: the looks are japonisent, corsets and strokes of puffed skirts, capes, parasols, and platform shoes.

In this context, the pussy is launching its line of ready-to-wear: here illustrating T-shirts, dresses, sweaters, while a wardrobe composed of well thought basic, taking a Japanese look under his influence. The line Hello Kitty rage very quickly because each article is a product of excellent quality, fashionable and elegant, with a touch of fantasy thanks to the childlike character. In fact, the line is a real concept, another way to dress life, which quickly has many followers.

Kitty becomes a fashion item advocated proud emblem of the population girly and small concentrate Kawaï attitude. Many VIP’s wear on their clothes, as is the case of Mariah Carey and Cameron Diaz or Irina Lazareanu. The same singer Lisa Loeb dedicate a song to him: “Hello Lisa.”

Fame Kitty is now global, and in 1983 became ambassador for UNICEF. Sanrio is issued in 2003 the “Top Brand with a Conscience” by Medinge Group of Sweden for the message of joy and friendship that has given vocation to pass. It even appears in 2004 on Mastercard US Legend Credit Inc., in order to teach girls to consume.

Meanwhile, the continuous mode is infatuated with the little character, which multiplies collaborations. In France, Victoria Couture produces jewelry in gold with the image of Kitty and affix it on a line ready-to-wear, she quickly adds accessories, shoes, umbrellas and underwear glamor. The brand even opened a Parisian boudoir Place des Victoires totally dedicated to the little pussy pink bow.

Similarly, Kitty joins American Apparel to appear on a variety of t-shirts, signs a licensing agreement with Inditex (owner group Zara ) for future collection, then she takes a new turn by creating a makeup line in collaboration with MAC Cosmetics. But the pussy really reached his peak in June 2008, when Vogue devotes all its Japanese edition, where she wears the creations of the last parade Dior: here adoubée fashion icon.

At 35, Kitty has done an admirable course: cultural phenomenon of global scope, it covers more than 22,000 products, and represents half the income of Sanrio, which has become the official logo…
