Hello Kitty, Opal's historic license, celebrates her 45th anniversary this year!

Opal, the French eyewear manufacturer, started manufacturing and selling Hello Kitty glasses in 2006, more than 10 years ago.
Historical license of the eyewear manufacturer, the Hello Kitty collections has taken a huge part in the development of Opal.
Indeed, for 45 years, the character’s notoriety has remained firmly rooted in the little girls’ imagination.

The Hello Kitty eyewear collection

The collection of frames is a blend of tradition and modernity.
While some concepts use the codes of the Kawaii universe with Japanese motifs, others assume a more casual style.
The added value of the collection lies here, at the crossroads between a deep territorial history and a haute couture style.

The anniversary box set in limited edition.

This year, to accompany the birthday, Opal is offering a collector’s box set. This jewelry box serves as a case for two pairs of glasses: an optical frame and a sunglass frame. A ring bearing the effigy of Hello Kitty completes this pretty “limited edition” box set.
