Got a Hello Kitty fan in your life? You might want to race down to the Herschel Supply stores to cop these fresh drops.

Everyone’s favourite feline is back with yet another kawaii collaboration! Teaming up with the beloved Sanrio character for their Spring 2019 collection, Herschel Supply is dropping an exclusive range of backpacks and fanny packs that are way cuter than you’d imagine.

Featuring a magnified print of the pop culture icon at the forefront of its designs, the classic Herschel Supply Nova silhouette gets the Hello Kitty treatment in three different sizes and colourways – Black, Cameo Rose and Highrise – complete with her signature red bow strategically placed on the top handle. If backpacks aren’t really your thing, you can get your Hello Kitty fix with the Fifteen Hip Pack which can be clip-fastened around the waist or over the shoulder for a casual street-chic look.

Herschel Supply and Hello Kitty – name a more purr-fect duo, we’ll wait.

The Spring 2019 Herschel Supply for Hello Kitty Collection is available exclusively at Herschel Marina Square #02-160, Singapore 039594.
