Due to launch on 8 January, the Loewe X My Neighbour Totoro collection was designed by Loewe's fashion director Jonathan Anderson to provide a sense of safety and solace.
The line-up includes bags, wallets, cardholders and a phone case adorned with beloved characters from the Studio Ghibli classic My Neighbour Totoro like Totoro, Chibi Totoro and the little soot sprites.
"The connection between Loewe and Studio Ghibli is this mutual love of craft and artisanal techniques, expressed in our respective languages. The connection between Loewe and 'My Neighbor Totoro,' on the other hand, is the mutual connection with nature, the world outdoors and a sense of perpetual invention," - Loewe.
The designs are transferred on to the bags using elaborate craft techniques such as marquetry where leather pieces are manually fitted into a mosaic.
Besides these leather goods, there's a range of shirts and hoodies with designs inspired by the beautiful animated landscapes in the film that evoke a sense of tranquility.
The collection will also have luxe Totoro-themed homeware, colourful t-shirts and whimsical bag accessories.
The Loewe x My Neighbour Totoro Capsule Collection will be available online and in-stores from 8 January 2021.
