Regardless of whether you’re an art buff, Disney fanatic, or an outdoor enthusiast, there’s a collection that’ll tickle your fancy

2021 may not be off to a good start, but a slew of luxury fashion houses know just the way to make things better: collaborations! From the surprise Loewe x My Neighbour Totoro collection that let you embrace your inner child to fifth installation of the Dior Lady Art project, check out the exciting pieces to add to your wardrobe:

Loewe x My Neighbour Totoro

With everything that's currently happening right now, Loewe has partnered up with Studio Ghibli on a My Neighbour Totoro collection that offers a cute distraction from the real world. In a statement by the brand, creative director Jonathan Anderson says, “When I think of a movie that affords me that kind of solace, speaking just as directly to a child as it does to an adult, that movie is My Neighbor Totoro. Anyone who has seen Hayao Miyazaki’s 1988 masterpiece cannot possibly forget it. The story of Mei and Satsuki’s friendship with the magical Totoro and his cohorts, the mischievous dust bunnies, who can’t be seen by adults but only by the children who love them, is truly touching.”

The collection features ready-to-wear pieces, bags, and accessories that are emblazoned with iconic characters and landscapes from the film, and regardless of your pick, they’ll let you embrace your inner child.

The North Face x Gucci

Travels may be banned for now, but that isn’t stopping us from wanting to snag a piece from the The North Face x Gucci collab. The partnership channels and celebrates the spirit of exploration, and the collection perfectly fuses both brands’ designs. Case in point: The down jacket that’s covered in ’70s florals or in the emblematic GG prints, maxi down skirts, utilitarian backpacks and belt bags, hiking boots, and more. For those who’d like to amp things up, you can also find a sleeping bag and a tent in the line-up.

Coach x Disney Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring

Following the release of its collection with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Coach has unveiled a Disney Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring capsule collection that brings three American icons together. “Ahead of its time when it was first made, this art feels so timely today as we can celebrate and appreciate the diverse work of great creators whoever they may be, without social boundaries. As my collections over the years have shown, I love Disney and I love Keith Haring, so this collaboration makes for my ultimate treat,” explains creative director Stuart Vevers in a statement.

Keith Haring’s series of vibrant Mickey illustrations can be spotted on ready-to-wear separates including men’s and women’s outerwear, tops, and more, but the glove-tanned leather bags topped with Mickey’s ears will definitely be a crowd favourite.

Louis Vuitton x Urs Fischer

After working with Urs Fischer on the Artycapucines, Louis Vuitton has tapped the Swiss visual artist on another “transversal artistic collaboration”, and you don’t have to be an art buff to appreciate the designs. This round, the collection highlights the creative’s playful take on the French Maison’s iconic monogram—one that’s done with a technique called “memory sketching”. The painterly logos can be found on a wide range of pieces, and they’re available in black-and-white, and black-and-red hues.

Dior Lady Art #5

Every year since 2016, Dior has invited different artists around the world to reinterpret its iconic Lady Dior bags, and this year, it’s no different. For the fifth instalment, the French fashion house has given Bharti Kher, Chris Soal, Claire Tabouret, Gisela Colon, Joel Andrianomearisoa, Judy Chicago, Mai-Thu Perret, Olga Titus, Recycle Group, and Song Dong carte blanche. The result? A collection of intricately and artistically designed bags that brought the Lady Dior to new heights. Judy Chicago’s eye-catching iridescent take, in particular, is one of our favourites.
