From the always-adorable Hello Kitty to LA's own punky Tokidoki, the style set clearly has an obsession for all things cute. Returning to the scene are big-faced British cartoons Mr. Men Little Miss, who were recently snapped up by Sanrio (no surprise) and are fêting their capsule collection with celeb-loved LA tee line Junk Food Clothing in West Hollywood this weekend.
Taking place this Saturday from 2pm to 6pm at Ron Robinson Fred Segal, the open-to-the-public party celebrates the eternally expressive characters' U.S. re-launch with family-friendly festivities, sweet treats and plenty of shoppable giftables. Guests can enjoy free nail art by celeb manicurist Katie Cazorla and even score flipbook snaps with the iconic storybook stars themselves, who are no strangers to designer collabs.
Plus, partygoers who spend $25 or more on the collection get a special goodie bag. Stoked for it? Reminisce your fave Mr. or Miss personality here and shop select goods online soon here.
