Famed for their excellent animation movies, Studio Ghibli have moved into the world of high fashion with the release of these limited edition souvenir jackets which celebrate two of their most iconic motion pictures – namely, My Neighbour Totoro and Ponyo – and for fans of striking outerwear, it doesn’t get much bolder or more vibrant than these cracking jackets from Studio Ghibli.
The Studio Ghibli Limited Edition Souvenir Jackets are a celebration of the anniversary of the releases of these movies (Totoro thirty years ago and Ponyo ten years ago) and there is a visual impact to these jackets that really is second to none and will turn heads aplenty this autumn and winter. These fantastic themed bomber jackets are an offering from the studio’s fashion brand GBL, and each one boasts some mighty eye-catching embroidery which have plenty of nods to each film.
Take Your Pick
Both these visually impactful jackets from Studio Ghibli have their merits and you’ll probably take your pick based upon which of the movies that you prefer. The Totoro jacket boasts a black with brown and beige ribbed collar and hemming and one of the movie’s most beloved characters, Catbus, is embroidered on the back along with the text ‘NEKOBASU’ and ‘Running like a GALE’. The chest and sleeves have yet more super cool, embroidered motifs from the film and is a real head turner.
Similarly, the Ponyo jacket from Studio Ghibli also has plenty of embroidered motifs, but this time comes in a blue and coral colourway, which is a knowing nod to the nautical setting witnessed in the movie. The text on the back of the jacket says, ‘PONYO HAS COME’ and has a sense of the sea that is synonymous with the movie and will make for a vibrant choice of outerwear for the next few months and beyond.
Studio Ghibli’s My Neighbor Totoro and Ponyo souvenir jackets (which will retail at approximately $270 each) have been on the shelves for just a few days now and are already selling rapidly so if you want to show your love for the magical movies of Studio Ghibli, you’ll need to move quickly to secure one for your wardrobe.
