Fans of Studio Ghibli’s My Neighbour Totoro, you’re in for a real treat. Spanish luxury brand, Loewe has just unveiled a new capsule collection and it features your favourite grey furry creature. Set to debut this January, the range incorporates iconic and adorable characters from the cult favourite film and whimsical backdrops on Loewe’s bags and ready-to-wear pieces.
Now if you’ve watched the film back in the day, you’d be well familiar with the adorable characters and the beautiful plot that we’ve come to love. A cultural landmark beloved by children and adults, this meaningful collaboration celebrates the values shared by LOEWE and My Neighbor Totoro, with their love for nature, the outdoors and a sense of perpetual invention. Besides, what better way to show your love for the film than by wearing it, right?
Here, the band of wood spirits and the fantasy landscapes that they inhabit are skillfully interpreted as prints. Meanwhile, both Totoro and the Soot Spirits take centre stage in this collection — with Loewe’s Crossbody bags and classic Hammock bags featuring Totoro on the front. Exuding a distinctively youthful air through four main motifs, expect loose volume and relaxed silhouettes that come in the form of T-shirts and hooded sweatshirts to jumpers and culottes, and even biker jackets.
