HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., June 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Claire’s is unleashing a whole new dimension of its partnership with Hello Kitty with a creative campaign, exclusive collection and year-long activations that bring Hello Kitty’s legacy to life like never before. Featuring exclusive product drops, in-store celebrations, CGI-centric digital takeovers, social media moments and more, Claire’s ambition is to share the messages of friendship, kindness, and self-expression with fans worldwide.

Launching today, the “Hello Kitty, Hello World” campaign creates an immersive celebration honoring the global icon, cementing Claire’s as a go-to destination for all things Hello Kitty in her 50th anniversary year.

“Hello Kitty, Hello World” is a surreal and colorful world brought to life by 3D artist Kirill Emelyanov and infused with exclusive Hello Kitty Claire’s products to ignite the anniversary celebration. Throughout the year, Claire’s will continue to add to the excitement as the one-stop-shop for all things Hello Kitty, celebrating with new moments, product launches and programming.

“For the past 50 years, Hello Kitty has been a globally recognized representation of kindness, friendship, and self-expression, the values that Claire’s has championed over the past six decades,” said Claudia Lima-Guinehut, Claire’s EVP and Chief Merchant Officer. “As a longtime friend of Hello Kitty, we’re proud to honor the beloved character and share her message around the globe.”

The first exclusive Hello Kitty Claire’s product drop is now available to consumers featuring an array of red and white products and accessories, including hats, purses, jewelry, backpacks, water bottles, phone cases and more. In true Claire’s fashion, customers can also get pierced with exclusive Hello Kitty earrings as a part of the brand’s leading piercing experience. This product line will be followed by several more exclusive collections featuring Hello Kitty and her friends.

2024 marks a milestone year for Hello Kitty, and her 50th anniversary celebration includes offering her fans supercute and limited-edition products. It wouldn’t be complete without a celebratory collection sold exclusively at Claire’s,” said Jill Koch, SVP of Brand Management and Marketing at Sanrio. “Both Hello Kitty and Claire’s have inspired creativity and personal style for generations, and we are happy to be celebrating this incredible anniversary together.”
