Studio Ghibli Loewe Collection: Shop the Best Pieces

Studio Ghibli has had a successful run in the coveted fashion world but it’s coming to a (temporary) close with one final collaboration with the Spanish luxury house Loewe. Following capsule collections inspired by Hayao Miyazaki’s “Spirited Away” and “My Neighbor Totoro” comes one more limited-edition lineup, this time inspired by “Howl’s Moving Castle.” The collection dropped exclusively on on Wednesday and will hit on Feb. 2.

What’s great about the Studio Ghibli x Loewe collections is that you don’t have to be a super-fan to find a versatile piece that you can make room for in your closet. While there are some arguably kitschy items that only avid devotees will appreciate (like this $15,000 Frankensteined Moving Castle bag), there are also some staple tees and accessories with more subtle nods to the beloved Miyazaki film (this flaming orange Calcifer button-down is already in our carts).

“Howl’s Moving Castle” is one of Miyazaki’s favorite creations and one of the most commercially successful films in Japan. Loosely based on the 1986 novel of the same name, the anime follows a young girl, Sophie, who gets hexed by a witch into aging prematurely until the famous wizard Howl uses his magical powers to save her.

Moments from the cult classic make their way into the clothes in a variety of ways. Scenes are printed in the lining of tweed jackets; characters such as Sophie, Howl and Heen are embossed and embroidered on everything from scarves to coats; and the fire demon Calcifer even inspired Loewe’s new scent with smoky notes of incense, patchouli, roasted hazelnut and cardamom.
