What is the biggest event for you that happened in 2009? Here I am not mean to list the world’s top 10 big events of 2009, although there is truly certain kind of official survey, instead, I am tend to explore at least one thing that is meaningful to you. To those Hello Kitty fanfare, no more event is important than Three Apple—the celebration exhibition in honor of Hello Kitty’s 35th anniversary. Since its debut in Japan 1974, the adorable cartoon image has won hearts of numerous fanfares, and it has long been an inspiration to artists and designers worldwide. Naturally during the big event there are won’t be short of special gifts, among which I love the Hello Kitty Collection released by the American Fashion brand “Judith Leiber” Particularly.
It is no exaggeration to say that each Judith Leiber Minaudiere is an achieved gift. This time Judith Leiber has made full use of Kitty’s iconic color implied meaning by using friendship red, cute pink, heartful yellow, wish green and sweet lavender. The message of each other is better reflected with the dazzling Australian crystal and refined Judith craftsmanship as well as unique innovation. Encrusted with multi-colored Australian crystals, the small Kitty gift shines like a super star with a big smile. This handbag collection is exactly what most young people had expected from Leiber. It was time for the brand to reshape its senior image to young clients. However, these chic designer bags are not designed especially for Hello Kitty’s young fans. One has to be a loyal fan of Kitty and Judith Leiber’s signature look as well to lavish huge amount of cash on a single bag. One thing is pretty sure that each single item is collectible.
This Judith Leiber collection is composed of five items, and the Red Bow Hobo bag is the most important one. It is the kind of Austrian crystal minaudiere featured with rounded silver plated top handle. The bag measures 6 inches wide, 3.75 inches tall and 2.5 inches deep. Surely it is going to be a timeless carryall with top snap closure accented with additional large crystal. This marvelous bag asks for huge sum—$3,995.00.
Pink Tulip is a rounded rectangle Austrian crystal cosmetic case highlighting a bright tulip pattern. The purse priced at $2,995.00 measures 5 inches wide, 3.25 inches tall and 1.75 inches deep. The bag features top snap closure and tuck in chain.
The third is the Retro Kitty—a curved oval Austrian crystal purse features top snap closure and tuck in chain. Measured 4.75 inches wide, 3.25 inches tall and 1.75 inches deep, it asks for $2,595.00.
The forth is a silver plated Austrian crystal compact that comes beautifully boxed with protective signature bag. This designer mirror measures 3 inches in diameter and asks for $495.00 in price. Would any one buy such a hefty rounded mirror, I doubt?
The last one is a cute key chain—the kind of silver plated Austrian crystal key fob that measures 1.3 inches in diameter. It is priced at $295.00. I will reserve my comment about the price. Luxury as luxury does.
