Here they are, the Hello Kitty men t-shirts; created by Nendo.
You can read what means each design, they are really original!
Numbers and symbols associated with math formulas were used to spell “hello kitty”, with “＝∞” simultaneously expressing “infinity” and “Kitty’s ribbon”
The design serves as a reference for Kitty’s height as equal to 5 apples, which are placed next to a scale.
The design features dictionary extracts with the definitions of “hello” and “kitty”, highlighted in pink and yellow to represent Kitty’s ribbon and nose respectively.
The graphic uses insect specimens to form Kitty’s face, which emerges if one looks from a distance. The red butterfly represents her ribbon, the black Japanese rhinoceros beetle and the stag beetle her eyes, and the scarabaeid beetle her nose.
Using Mondrian’s characteristic abstract compositions involving primary colours as a motif, one can somehow strangely discern Kitty’s face due to her distinctive colours.
The design features an x-ray image revealing Kitty’s skeleton, shedding light to her mysterious internals.
Since her debut in 1974, Hello Kitty has been subtly evolving through the years, incorporating design trends concerning her contours, three-dimensionality and facial features. The design draws attention to Kitty’s continuous evolution, by superimposing her on the classic illustration depicting human evolution.
