Kidrobot just announced a jewelry collaboration with designer Tarina Tarantino. The goods will debut in Kidrobot and Tarina Tarantino's Soho stores on July 30 and range from $65 to $975. We couldn't think of a more fitting designer for Kidrobot to make jewelry with. Tarantino has designed a Barbie doll and Barbie-inspired jewelry and famously gave Hello Kitty pink hair in 2002 (an image she still uses in her jewelry designs), and she's earned a cult following with her bright, shiny creations. Not to mention she calls her L.A. headquarters "The Sparkle Factory."
Following up Kidrobot's recent colorful, toy-inspired handbag line, the new collection includes necklaces, bracelets, earrings, charms, rings, and wallet chains that all feature a Kidrobot character, plus Tarantino's signature Swarovski-crystal embellishments, Lucite beads, pearls, silk ribbons, and cast-metal pendants. We're eyeing the drop earrings with angry-looking bunnies smoking cigarettes and sticking out their tongues. Aww, cute and tough! See those and more after the jump. Sharon Clott
