Loewe Creative Director Jonathan Anderson reimagined some of the most recognizable characters and scenes from animation Howl’s Moving Castle across ready-to-wear, handbags and accessories.
“The world we are living in needs a counteract: not as an escape, but as a different outlook,” Anderson said in a statement. “This, to me, is what Hayao Miyazaki’s animated films for Studio Ghibli are about: a commentary on the moment and an alternative to it, always heartfelt, fulfilling, full of fantasy and sentiment.”
The collection retains Loewe’s distinct feel, featuring many of its signature styles, from its Puzzle to the Amazona. There’s also a selection of small leather goods, like intricately crafted keychains and wallets, as well as a scented candle, jumpers, jackets and shirts, all with special raffia or feather appliqués and homages to key characters like Sophie, Howl, the fire demon Calcifer, Markl, Heen, Turnip Head and the Witch of Waste.
