Luxury Fashion Brand Loewe Has Released a Spirited Away Collection
Since the movie premiered more than two decades ago, many scenes from Spirited Away (2001) have become iconic. Now fans can wear images from Hayao Miyazaki's magnum opus as luxury fashion items. As Nerdist reports, the Spanish design brand Loewe has launched a line of high-end clothing and accessories inspired by Spirited Away.
Loewe's new Spirited Away collection captures the gorgeous hand-drawn animation from the Japanese film in tactile statement pieces. Scenes of the young protagonist Chihiro running through a garden or sitting on a train are available as sweaters, bags, and T-shirts, as seen below.
The brand highlights other fan-favorite characters as well. No-Face appears on a lambskin biker jacket, and the whimsical soot sprites decorate scarves and beanies. Haku, the bathhouse chicks, and the pint-sized forms of baby Bô and Yubaba's bird also get their own items. You can view the full line here.
Most products in the collection are pricier than what the average Ghibli fan may be able to afford. A cotton T-shirt will set you back $650, and an embroidered wool sweater costs $6400. Even less-expensive items like the beanie and a branded candle are priced at over $200. After browsing the luxurious apparel, you may decide that seeing the iconic imagery of Spirited Away on your screen at home is a better deal. Here are some facts about the Studio Ghibli masterpiece to read before your next watch.
