Fawn over this new My Neighbor Totoro x Loewe collection avail from 8 Jan

That feeling when your worlds collide is truly unparalleled. I remember when Taylor Swift came out with the song ‘Exile’ with Bon Iver, I think I died with happiness right there and then. The sentiment is no different with this “My Neighbor Totoro” x Loewe collection set to launch 8 January 2021.

Even if you are a casual watcher of Studio Ghibli films, you must know one of its most famous and whimsical films, My Neighbour Totoro. A sweet-natured film about two sisters who move to a new house and befriend a friendly rabbit-like forest spirit named ‘Totoro’ and go on adventures together. Needless to say, as an avid watcher of Ghibli films, this is a collaboration that warms the cockles of my shopaholic heart.

In the Loewe collection, they take the iconic characters of Totoro, those magical soot balls and even mini totoros are plastered in this collection. I have my eye on the Small Totoro Hammock Drawstring bag in classic calfskin and linen (£2,100 ~S$3,762.42). Apart from the practicality of a backpack, the illustration of Totoro is just too adorable to bear.

There are classic Loewe shapes given the Hayao Miyazaki makeover, like this Mini Dust Bunnies Puzzle bag in classic calfskin (£1,700 ~ S$3045.77 ) which feature Loewe’s iconic Puzzle Bag. The cuboid shape and geometric lines make this bag a wardrobe staple, but with the soot balls all over, it’s perfect. Think of it as an everyday bag with just that touch of whimsy.

Just to show how much you love My Neighbour Totoro, this cosy and over-the-top Totoro Crafty Tree sweater in mohair and wool (£1,300 ~S$2,329.12). Seeing as we have all this rainy and cloudy weather lately, you could be curled up with a piping hot bowl of fish soup and this Loewe sweater. Doesn’t that just sound amazing?

Well, I’ve only scratched the surface of this “My Neighbor Totoro” x Loewe collection, and you can take a look at the rest of the collection here. It’s a new year and maybe, its time to treat yourself to some Studio Ghibli.
