21 Unexpected Fashion Collaborations

From Fashionable Tech Jewelry to Fancy Floral Sneakers

— October 27, 2014 — Fashion
Unexpected fashion collaborations can yield the most stunning, unforeseen results.

Collaboration is a pillar of creativity; to refresh and innovate, you must introduce some new blood every once in a while. The Simpsons Hello Kitty collection, for instance, was the unlikely collaboration between Sanrio and Twentieth Century Fox. The capsule collection honored Sanrio's 40th anniversary as well as The Simpson's 25th.

If you though fashion and cartoons were an odd mix, what about the collaboration between high-fashion retailer Saks Fifth Avenue and Saturday Night Live? It doesn't seem like couture and comedy have much in common, but the collaboration lead to the Key for a Cure collection. The looks in the charitable collection were inspired by iconic SNL characters.
