I don’t know if as a child they ever took you to the cinema to see one of your favorite cartoons. To me yes: I was in the mountains, the cinema only had one room and the film was one of the most famous anime that the Western world has ever loved. It was a film from Studio Ghibli, a Japanese animation film studio that from the 1990s began to give European children a different flavor than they were used to. The cartoons were “different”: the plot did not undergo drama, the pace was slow, calm, calm. There was no need for any hustle and bustle to attract attention: the characters lived their own lives and from small daily adventures they learned the mysteries of life.
Loewe is a solid company – it doesn’t need any fuss to get attention. It is approaching its 175 years of life, establishing itself as one of the longest-running and solidest luxury fashion houses in existence. But stable does not mean immobile: innovation is the engine of the most fascinating creations. So, just days before the new year, Loewe announces the release of their first Anime Capsule Collection.

The anime they will be inspired by is one of the souls I was talking about above, one of those that first brought that different flavor of calm, elegance, youth and light-heartedness typical of the East: My Neighbor Totoro, an anime created by the Studio Ghibli at the turn of the 80s and 90s.
My Neighbor Totoro talks about travel, new discoveries, friendship, inclusion and adventure: important concepts for Loewe, which creates each piece of this collection focusing on the harmony and tenderness of youth.
The collection includes jackets, sweatshirts, t-shirts and leather accessories, such as bags (in various models, including shoulder bags, backpacks and buckets) with the most famous characters of the film drawn on them.
The LOEWE x My Neighbor Totoro capsule will be available starting January 8, but you can register here to participate in the early launch of the collection with limited access.
