The Loewe x ‘Spirited Away’ Capsule Collection Is Simply Magical
After their successful collaboration last year featuring My Neighbour Totoro, fashion brand, Loewe and Japanese animation house, Studio Ghibli are teaming up for the second team to launch a new capsule collection.
This time, they are celebrating one of the studio’s most iconic movies, Spirited Away, the 2001 animated epic which won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2003.
The collection features all of the movie’s favourites characters such as the young protagonist, Chihiro, the mysterious Haku and the sorceress Yubaba as well as the Kaonashi spirit with no face, Fly-Bird and the Susuwatari water spirits.
These characters take over the ready-to-wear pieces, blankets, scarves and canvas bags including Loewe’s iconic Amazona, Puzzle, Hammock, Flamenco and Totes.
Teaming up with the renowned Japanese animation studio, Loewe also introduces the pieces using the classic Japanese technique, boro, which consists of mended and indigo-dyed scraps patchworked together. This creates intarsia of Kasuri textiles and Anagram jacquard canvas on both the ready-to-wear pieces and bags.
Spirited Away is an ode to loyalty, friendship and resilience in the face of adversity as much as it is magical. It’s only right that Loewe artisans brought the characters to life, just as the movie’s spirits and legacy continue to influence pop culture today.
