Move aside Kate Moss, there is a new top dog cat in town… With a registration day of November 1st 1974 by her creator Yuko Yamaguchi, Hello Kitty will be celebrating her 40th birthday in the company of another icon, the Playboy Bunny. Conceived by Playboy art director Art Paul for the January 1954 issue, the world’s most famous bunny has come to symbolize a pop cultural revolution, much like how Hello Kitty propagated the Kawaii subculture around the globe. Surprisingly, however, the two most recognizable caricatures never collaborated till now. Thanks in part to Parisian boutique colette and proprietor Sarah Andelman, née Lerfel, who curated a collaboration collection featuring the two. Along with both iconoclasts, the limited collection includes exclusive items made for colette, such as:

Hello Kitty x Playboy x Happy Socks
Hello Kitty x Playboy x Sleepy Jones T-Shirt
Hello Kitty x Playboy x Charvet Bow Tie
Hello Kitty x Playboy x Yazbukey Mirror
