For half a century, a very fashionable (and oddly British) feline named Kitty White has been charming generations via animated series, school supplies, video games, music albums, comic books and more. And to celebrate 50 years of the adorable global phenomenon, Nordstrom will unveil a fittingly cute Hello Kitty-themed pop-up shop in its New York City Flagship.

Starting today, June 27, and available through summer at Nordstrom NYC (225 West 57th Street), as well as three additional Nordstrom locations (Century City in Los Angeles, Domain Northside in Austin and Downtown Seattle) and Nordstrom.com, the pop-up will highlight exclusive collaborations featuring Hello Kitty and her closest pals, with women’s and men’s apparel, accessories, home and entertainment goods, beauty items, plush toys and even pantry staples.

“A powerful symbol of friendship, kindness, and inclusivity for the past five decades, Hello Kitty has touched countless hearts worldwide.
