As we have reported previously on the Dr Romanelli x Hello Kitty x Medicom Toy collaborative project, we see a new version of the Hello Kitty in a different colorway. The inspiration for this release is based on volunteers at hospitals sometimes referred to as Candy Stripers. The origin of the name came from the female volunteers traditionally wore red and white striped jumpers that were similar to sticky candy. Candy Stripers originated as a high school civics class project in East Orange, New Jersey in 1944 and the uniforms were sewn by the girls in the class from red and white fabrics provided by the teacher.
