“Once you’ve met someone, you never really forget them. It just takes a while for your memories to return.”

This is one of the most unforgettable lines on Spirited Away—one of the most beloved Japanese animated films of all time. Perhaps, a lot of people have resonated with Zeniba’s line, so much so that even though this classic movie—written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki—was created back in 2001, it remains top-of-mind when it comes to anime films.

Without a doubt, Spirited Away has etched its place in great anime, becoming a timeless subject of various creations through the years. The latest one is major luxury fashion house LOEWE, which collaborated with Japanese animation company Studio Ghibli for the second time around. Their most recent tie-up has brought forth a capsule collection inspired by the award-winning masterpiece.
