LOEWE is back with its second collaboration with Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli, a capsule collection that celebrates one of the studio’s most acclaimed films, Spirited Away. Inspiring dreaminess, progressive multiplicity, and kaleidoscopic daydreaming, characters from the film are brought to life on pieces of clothing, iconic bags, and small leather accessories.

An ode to loyalty, friendship, and stubbornness in the face of adversity, Spirited Away (2001) tells the story of a 10-year-old girl, Chihiro, getting lost in a magical forest and entering a world ruled by gods, witches, and spirits. Directed by Hayao Miyazaki – an undisputed master of the fantastic, and an inventor with the ability to reach life-affirming lessons by simply entertaining with captivating stories – the fantasy world is a magnificent escape. It is a parallel reality in which everybody can learn something in the most heartfelt and fulfilling of ways. 

Featuring all characters in the movie, the capsule collection sees young protagonist Chihiro, mysterious Haku, sorceress Yubaba, and then Kaonashi, Aogaeru, Otori-Sama, Boh and Fly-Bird, and the Susuwatari swarm all over on pieces of clothing, blankets and scarves, bags, and small leather accessories.

The iconic Amazona, Puzzle, Hammock and Flamenco are no exceptions. Figures are playfully rendered as jacquard, print, applique and patch, as well as leather marquetry or embroidery. LOEWE artisans have brought the characters to life through the added focus of tactility and three-dimensional forms.

The LOEWE x Spirited Away collection tells the tale of uplifting dreaminess, progressive multiplicity, and kaleidoscopic dreaming as the way forward and is available for sale at the boutique.
