LOEWE collaborate with Studio Ghibli for a second time, creating a capsule collection of one of the studios most acclaimed films; Spirited Away - the 2001 animated epic which secured director Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli a number of prizes. The film is an ode to loyalty, friendship and stubbornness in the face of adversity. It is magical.
The LOEWE x Spirited Away collection features all of the movies most iconic characters. From the young protagonist Chihiro to the sorceress Yubaba and Kaonashi, the spirit with no face. These characters swarm across ready-to-wear, blankets and scarves, as well as appearing on leather and canvas bags including; the Amazona, Puzzle, Hammock and Flamenco, in addition to other small accessories.
Through tactility and three-dimensional form LOEWE artisans brought the characters to life, using the classic Japanese technique known as 'boro' which consists of mended and indigo-dyed scraps patchworked together to create intarsia of Kasuri textiles and Anagram jacquard canvas on the ready-to-wear and bags. Shapes are loose and relaxed, with oversized cardigans, jumpers, culottes and t-shirts. The result is quite simply; a wearable movie.
The campaign images shot by Juergen Teller feature a unique cast of individuals; Singer and Performer Dua Saleh and Models; Kit Butler, Hyunji Shin and Mica Arganaz.
The collection will be available for purchase from the 7th January 2022 on loewe.com
