London artist reimagined Little Miss characters as part of 45th birthday celebrations.
Sanrio is continuing to secure high profile collaborations as part of the 45th anniversary of Mr Men Little Miss, with the latest being with London artist, Charlotte Posner.
Charlotte – who is best known for her pop dolls – has reimagined the Little Miss characters and is selling 45 hand paintings.
“We are really excited to be working with Charlotte and love her fun interpretation of the Little Misses,” said licensing manager Sabrina Segalov. “While bright and colourful, they are in keeping with her fine art background.”
Charlotte explained: “I love working with and collaborating with brands, and when I saw Mr Men partnering with Upfest and the graffiti artist Cheo for their 45th anniversary, I wanted to be a part of it as well. Once I had the idea of combining my favourite Little Miss characters with my Posner Pop Dolls, I haven’t looked back since.
“My favourite part of the collaboration was seeing the last few stages come together so perfectly, and finally adding the Swarovski crystals! I am so happy with the finished paintings. I love the way the Little Miss characters work with my Pop Dolls.
“We have created 45 Limited Edition hand painted originals, which are collectables, and this project means a lot to me.”
