From Longchamp and Pokémon, to LeSportsac and Hello Kitty, the past year has witnessed some of the most iconic luxury cartoon duos to date. With Chinese New Year just around the corner, Gucci is celebrating yet another iconic whimsical cartoon character: Doraemon.
The Italian powerhouse’s new collection ushers in the Year of the Ox with a dedicated capsule featuring manga’s iconic earless robot cat, first imagined by Fujiko Fujio in the 70s. Splashed across 50 limited edition pieces – ranging from coats and jackets to an assortment of fun accessories including bucket hats, bags and slippers – Doraemon brings a welcome pop of blue to the brand’s classic monogram pattern. Gucci’s eclectic neo-Romantic style and manga’s nostalgic whimsy is a hybrid none of us knew we needed.
