5 Cool Collabs

There are a whole bunch of really cute wishlist-able collaborations available now just in time for the holidays.  Here are a couple of my current favorites, with images of a few of many products from their lines.  I don't own anything from these collections, but I can dream.

Tokidoki x Sanrio

I absolutely love both Sanrio and Simone Legno's work.  For the longest time, I was under the impression that Tokidoki was designed by a woman, but I was wrong!  Simone Legno is actually a really cool dude.  In his own words, “Tokidoki is the hope, the hidden energy that everyone has inside, It gives us the strength to face a new day and dream about something positive and the hope that something magical will happen to us.”  So it's very fitting that he worked with Sanrio for a new line of products including bags and plushies that can be found here.

Tokidoki x Sanrio Characters 8" Plush: Cinnamoroll, $28.00

Tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Handbag, $75.00

Onch Movement x Sanrio

Sanrio is on a roll this season with a second amazing line of products designed by artist Onch Movement.  Onch has done some work with Hello Kitty previously through his line with Forever 21.  His jewelry is always really cute and unique.  I have followed him on social media since discovering his work and he seems like a genuinely kind person which makes me like his designs a million times more.  Although I anticipated these products being a bit more out there than they actually are, I think they are still very cute and a lot easier to wear for every day compared to some of his past creations (eg. bacon bracelet).  His Sanrio products are available for purchase here.

Onch x Hello Kitty Necklace: Candy Chrome Bow, $66.00

Onch x Hello Kitty Necklace: Dear Daniel, $125.00

Takashi Murakami x Shu Uemura

Takashi Murakami is by far one of my favorite artists.  Japanese artist Murakami created the art movement "superflat" which has continued to inspire younger generations of artists.  He previously did a line of bags with Louis Vuitton but that was a good couple of years ago.  Murakami is back with a high-end line of makeup products, inspired by magical girl anime, through Japanese brand Shu Uemura.  I really wish I could try some of these but I have no idea where to even find this in a physical shop in the US.  However, they are available online here.
Heart-full Pink Parallel Eyes and Cheek Palette, $69.00

Lip and Cheek Fun-tasy (5 colors), $25.00

Meadham Kirchhoff x TopShop

I wasn't always huge into fashion and I still don't even know most of what is going on.  Meadham Kirchhoff caught my eye recently and I was 50% upset that it was inaccessible and 50% pleased that it's hard to find because it's quite expensive.  Someone heard my prayers and  now this TopShop collection is a thing that I was really excited for, cried about once I saw the prices, decided to go to TopShop during my lunch break and play dress up instead of making any financially irresponsible decisions.  They didn't have a lot of it in stock in the store and it does seem many items have sold out online already.  The one dress I tried on was really cute but it fit weird  because it was definitely made to be worn by a person with a small chest.  It was also so see-through that I can't even post a picture of myself in it.   Probably all for the best though.  Shop for it here.

Rainbow Print Pleated Skirt, $90.00

Red Glitter Mac, $400.00

Dylan's Candy Bar x LeSportsac

LeSportsac always has really cute prints that I feel like mostly slip under the radar.  I noticed these cute prints while walking past their SoHo store and was shocked that it was the first I was seeing of this collaboration because they are largely covered with images of candy and how is that not exciting?  Shop it here.

LeSweet Tote with Pocket in Sugar Stash, $128.00
DCB Voyager Backpack in Candy Spill, $168

That's all I have for now. I hope you thought these products were as cute as I did.  Let me know if you get your hands on any of these things.  I am interested to hear all about it, especially how the Murakami makeup is.  I guess I will probably never know.  (◡‿◡✿)
