Every time Gucci collaborates with another brand, the world has a lot of good stuff to adorn. This time the ‘lot of good stuff’ comes in the form of a 40-piece capsule collection that stars the 2112-born cat-type robot Doraemon. The Gucci x Doraemon capsule features a motley of products with the Japanese manga and anime series fictional character as its mascot on the classic GG monogram. The line will consist of a vast series of clothing and accessories available for both men and women, among which we already have our favorites. The GG monogrammed coats, jackets, shorts, numerous short-sleeved T-shirts, track pants that are adorned with Doraemon motifs throughout are extremely adorable and a winner for us. In addition to the monogram, Gucci’s iconic green and red stripes run down the sleeves and hem and are seen in the handbag and wallet collection too. The capsule collection is completed with the inclusion of Rhyton and Ace sneakers bearing the stamp of the cute manga character and a phone case and 40mm Dive watch.
This collection’s timing is pretty on point, too, as the collaboration celebrates Doraemon’s 50th anniversary and wholeheartedly welcomes the upcoming Chinese New Year, with lots of auspicious red and gold tones. The team-up was first revealed through a series of accessories in the luxury house’s Cruise 2021 collection and is available for pre-order in many countries, including Japan, UK, and the USA, and via the house’s web store.
