Are you or your honey looking to add a little feline flair or cat fashion to your New Year’s Eve attire? Japan LA, a unique shop inspired by pop culture in Los Angeles and Japan, has teamed up with Sanrio to create a cute collection of Hello Kitty-inspired neckwear.

The swanky ties and bow ties come in handsome boxes and are 100 percent silk. They’re available in a variety of classic prints with some added kitty flair. Be the talk of the party in pink and purple plaid, or delight in Hello Kitty faces floating in a sea of houndstooth and polka dots. I hear they’re appropriate to wear to work, especially if your boss is Business Cat and you’re angling to get a raise!

Also: Do you think it would be cool for Hello Kitty to make her boyfriend, Dear Daniel, wear a tie with her picture on it?

If you’re in the Los Angeles area, stop by Japan LA’s Melrose Avenue store to check out the hot accessories, or visit the website to get your feline fancies online.
