A JEWEL OF A CELEBRATION FOR THE 1ST ANNIVERSARY OF MIKIMOTO FLAGSHIP STORE AND THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF HELLO KITTY
It’s one year ago that the Flagship store of Mikimoto opened its doors at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands and, as if that alone isn’t one celebration to raise a glass of bubbly to, it’s also time to celebrate 40 years of the iconic Japanese pop culture sweetheart, Hello Kitty.
By way of celebration, these two Japanese icons have created an unprecedented collaboration and the Mikiomoto x Hello Kitty Celebrations will bring a high-fashion collection, some very sophisticated designs and pieces of one-of-a-kind high jewellery designs.
Mikimoto x Hello Kitty Collection
These 10 designs are a true reflection of the Mikimoto superior craftsmanship and the collaboration with Hello Kitty. This Japanese Collaboration Collection sees a cute and playful side to each and every sophisticated pearl.
The silver bangle featuring Hello Kitty’s face shape is by far the sweetest bangle we ever did see. Priced at S$1,140.
Pendants have matching earrings and Mikimoto x Hello Kitty fans can choose 18k white gold with either Akoya Pearl or South Sea Pearls with a choice of red, yellow, blue enamel signature ribbon designs. Priced at S$1,440 (necklace and S$1,380 pair of earrings).
The sophisticated string of pearls necklace stays classic but adds in the iconic Hello Kitty ribbon at their centre. Priced at S$8,840, S$33,000 and S$37,000.
Mikimoto x Hello Kitty High Jewellery
This jewel of a celebration sees us spellbound by six one-of-its-kind Mikimoto x Hello Kitty High Jewellery creations. Especially for the Mikimoto Flagship store 1st Anniversary, these 6 Hello Kitty High Jewellery pieces were flown into Singapore and we were lucky enough to feast our eyes on them recently.
The stunning statement-piece Tiara uses Akoya pearls, onyx and diamonds meet with strawberry shaped ruby lockets to give this Tiara a romantic and elegant design. Hello Kitty and her Dear Daniel hide inside the lockets while being surrounded by bejeweled florals as well as a dazzling three-carat diamond.
Necklace, Choker and Hair Accessory all feature the Mikimoto craftsmanship in their strings of Akoya pearls and Hello Kitty is shown with onyx eyes, white and yellow diamonds and, of course, her signature ribbon is present in each piece using rubies.
Finally, but by no means least, the Mikimoto x Hello Kitty High Jewellery creations give us one-of-a-kind bracelet and brooch. Both are inspired by Spring season in Japan and feature Akoya pearls, rubies, diamonds, mother of pearl and corals embedded into red and white plum blossoms. Hello Kitty’s face and her ribbon are masterfully interwoven to blend and appear perfectly in these 2 exclusive pieces.
Mikimoto x Hello Kitty Collection necklace and earrings adorned with diamonds to depict the Hello Kitty ribbon are priced at S$12,600 and S$22,000. Mikimoto x Hello Kitty Collection is at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, takashimaya and Centrepoint.
