For those with a love affair for fashion and manga characters, you'd be delighted to know about Gucci's Doraemon collaboration. The collaboration was first seen during Gucci's 12-hour-long live-stream 2021 Resort Wear Epilogue collection fashion show in July 2020 featuring Doraemon designs on tote bags to commemorate the adorable cat robot's 50th anniversary.

First introduced in the 70s in a Japanese manga series written by Fujiko Fujio, Doraemon is an earless robotic cat who travels back in time to aid a boy named Nobita Nobi. Since then this jovial robot cat has been one of the most iconic Japanese characters and was even appointed as Japan's first 'anime ambassador' in 2008 by Japan's Foreign Ministry. 

The Doraemon x Gucci Epilogue collection features over 50 items, including jackets, shirts, coats, track pants, sneakers, shorts, a watch, sunglasses, bags, and a card case, in Gucci's classic monogram pattern with Doraemon prints and accents.

Items from the collections are priced at $1,600 to $48,000 depending on the product. If you're interested in getting a hold of these quirky items, the Doraemon x Gucci capsule is currently available for pre-order via Gucci's Hong Kong online store. Once you order, the delivery is estimated between January 12 to March 12, 2021.
