Time flies so fast, and the hot summer has subsided, replaced by the chilling air of the autumn season where the leaves turn into warm red colors. Now we are just one month away from December, which means that winter is right around the corner. The weather has already become chillier, so we need to prepare ourselves to face the colder weather of the coming months. But how?
These official winter outfits from Studio Ghibli will be perfect for battling the cold weather of winter this year!
Japan’s Donguri Kyowakoku (“Acorn Republic”) is the retail chain for official Studio Ghibli merchandise that consistently releases special products for every season. For autumn and winter 2019, they've announced two new product ranges that will help keep our bodies warm throughout these seasons. Get ready to see characters from My Neighbor Totoro, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Kiki’s Delivery Service to be featured in these adorable outfits!
Now, Studio Ghibli comes to the rescue!
The first products announced are these adorable stoles designed for adults. Take a look at the picture above and you can see Soot Sprites, Jiji, and Howl’s fire demon Calcifer featured in the motifs. Just the thought alone of being wrapped up in one of these stoles while drinking a delicious hot chocolate is heavenly, don't you think?
Luckily, those who can enjoy the autumn and winter season with Ghibli-wear aren’t just adults, as the second product range is a series of products for all-ages, including children. This new collection is cute and stylish--and of course we can’t miss everyone's favorite Totoro featured in the designs.
No winter outfit would be complete without mittens, and that’s why Studio Ghibli also offers these gloves below as a part of their collection. And finally, a cute little drawstring bag with a matching design is here to complete the look!
If you’re a fan of Catbus but prefer them to be in your children’s or sibling’s wardrobe, you don’t need to worry since the collection also offers a Catbus version of the children's outfits. Even just by looking at them, we can feel warm already, right?
However, this collection is not only limited to outfits, since they also offer adorable pouches that can keep your phone or wallet safe. Just like the children’s outfits, you can choose between a Totoro or Catbus design--and they’re both as soft as they can be! They’re definitely a must for any Studio Ghibli fan.
