Kawaii! Loewe's new Totoro collaboration is one for fans of
the classic anime

Collaborations between fashion houses and nostalgic cartoon characters
have been all the rage recently. Gucci dropped a Mickey Mouse collection
for Chinese New Year in 2020, and just last week unveiled a Doraemon
collaboration. Longchamp also recently launched a Pokemon collection,
while Balenciaga collaborated with Hello Kitty.

 

Spanish luxury house Loewe is now jumping on the bandwagon with
a collaboration with Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli. The Loewe x
My Neighbor Totoro capsule collection takes inspiration from
the much-loved 1988 tale, creating a cute and chic collection of leather
accessories and ready-to-wear items.

 

The collection was a result of Loewe’s creative director Jonathan Anderson’s
“longing for heartwarming feelings”, the brand said in a press note. 

 

“When I think of a movie that affords me that kind of solace, speaking just

as directly to a child as it does to an adult, that movie is My Neighbor Totoro.
Anyone who has seen Hayao Miyazaki’s 1988 masterpiece cannot possibly
forget it,” Anderson said.

 

Indeed, nothing brings out feelings of nostalgia much like the animations
we grew up with. 

 

The collection features the iconic characters and the fantasy world they
inhabit. The mischievous fuzzy dust bunnies and the adorable round Totoro
are interpreted as prints, allover prints, jacquard intarsia and leather
marquetry.

 

These characters also feature on the surface of iconic Loewe bags such as
the Puzzle, the Balloon and the Hammock, as well as on small leather
accessories such as pouches, cases and wallets.

 

 

The whimsical motifs are also crafted onto T-shirts and sweatshirts,
which take on a youthful colour palette.
