New store is just as magical as the exclusive goods inside it. 

When it comes to filmmaking, Studio Ghibli is all about high levels of quality and perfection, and it’s the same when it comes to their collaborations. For their latest collaboration, though, the quality is on a whole other level, whisking fans off to the world of Spirited Away with a new collection from luxury Spanish brand Loewe.

To celebrate the release of the new range — their second tie-up, following the January 2021 Loewe x My Neighbour Totoro collection — a magical new store has popped up for a very limited time in Tokyo’s trendy Harajuku district.

The collection is all about “fusing exquisite craft with kaleidoscopic fantasy“, and that concept is reflected at the pop-up store, which is lit with hanging lanterns to look just like the fantasy world in the film.

The interior of the store also takes visitors on a journey into the world of Ghibli, with more lanterns, the iconic bridge, and a model of the train from the film, where models posed in items from the collection at the pre-opening event on 6 January.

A lot of thought has gone into the marketing for the special collaboration, with this video below showing some of the must-have items from the range.

Unfortunately, this luxury collaboration is one a lot of us can’t afford, but it doesn’t cost us anything to take a wistful look at the range! So let’s check out some of the stand-out items, along with their eye-watering price tags, starting with the handbags.
