Balenciaga unveiled leather handbags sporting the iconic feline Hello Kitty at the recent Paris Fashion Week.

Balenciaga’s Spring/Summer 2020 show, which took place on Sept. 29, is the fashion house’s first since designer Demna Gvasalia left streetwear brand Vetements and took over as creative director.

Inspired by the European Parliament, the blue spiran runway was accompanied by foreboding music and cold gusts from the air-con unit, Dazed noted.

This is not the first time Hello Kitty has made it to the designer runway.

Last year, creator Sanrio teamed up with Italian brand Furla for a collection of cosmetic cases, printed handbags, and wallets, according to Nylon.

As of this writing, the Hello Kitty x Balenciaga handbags have not yet released in stores. 

Balenciaga’s full show is available below:
