When it comes to animated films, there's nothing as artful and soulful as Studio Ghibli's repertoire. The Japanese animation studio has been producing hard-to-forget works since 1985, so it's only proper that their new line of merchandise comes with a very vintage look. GBL, the studio's apparel brand for adults, dropped a new set of 22 stone-washed shirts based on nine of their classic films, including My Neighbor Totoro, on June 12 through their online store.

The 2020 summer collection boasts the theme "used feeling," according to the studio's Japanese-language website. "It has a soft feel and vintage feeling like old clothes," they added.

The shirts, which look very minimalist, are a nod to Studio Ghibli's defining films from the '80s to the 2000s, including Castle in the Sky (1986), My Neighbor Totoro (1988), Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989), Porco Rosso (1992), Whisper of the Heart (1995), Princess Mononoke (1997), Spirited Away (2001), and Arrietty (2010). There’s also one inspired by Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (1984), which was technically produced even before the studio was founded but has always been considered a Ghibili work.

The 2020 GBL T-Shirt Collection is available on GBL's website. Each shirt is at 4,880 yen (roughly P2,200). GBL also plans to open a permanent store in Miyashita Park in Shibuya.
