|Le Tigre: Roxie Sweetheart X Scarlett|
Here at HYPER we love all things kawaii, but there's one of us who loves it a little bit more than everyone else--and that's our kawaii star Scarlett! That's why we asked her to team up with Roxie Sweetheart, the brainchild brand of designer and entrepreneur Michelle Lauren Hirst, to come up with a design that combined Michelle's creative talents with Scarlett's love for the super-cute. Together, they came up with a mood board (below) that brought together some of Scarlett's favourite colours, childhood memories, and animals. Key words were pastel colours, Sylvanian families, lions, Lolita fashion and cute food.
This mood board was transformed into Le Tigre, a super-sweet smiling tiger character surrounded by fluffy pom poms. Says Michelle, "When I was first approached by Hyper Japan about doing a collaboration with Scarlett I was very excited! I love Scarlett's super sweet Lolita style and Japanese street style influences a lot of Roxie Sweetheart designs and illustrations. I started the collaboration by creating mood-boards, then did sketches, and worked on these using computer aided design. I wanted to create something bright, unique and fun - just like Scarlett!"
Scarlett's delighted too--"I absolutely LOVE the design! Michelle is such an amazing artist. The little hearts on the ears and nose are so cute, and I love the pom poms! It looks wonderful".
