These are the words used by Jonathan Anderson, creative director of Loewe, to describe the spirit thanks to which the new collection of clothing, leather bags and accessories is born: “In these times we need feelings that warm our hearts. When I think of a movie that offers this kind of comfort to both children and adults, that movie is “My Neighbor Totoro”. The story of Mei and Satsuki’s friendship with the magical Totoro and his friends, the soot spirits that can only be seen by children who love them, thus relives in graphic prints, allover prints, jacquard and leather inlays, but also in hand painted motifs or pompom details. The way how the characters are represented on leather accessories, using the inlay technique on leather, is particularly fascinating. Through this process, the Totoro characters appear on the iconic Loewe bags, such as the Puzzle, Balloon and Hammock models, as well as on small leather goods, while the meticulous weaving technique typical of tapestries is experimented on tote bags. The collection also expresses the bond shared by Loewe and My Neighbor Totoro with nature, as well as work and craft techniques, declined in their respective language, shared with Studio Ghibli.
