Add this year’s GBL line of Studio Ghibli shirts for adults to your casual and stylish collection.


“American casual style” brand GBL is well known for incorporating beloved Ghibli characters and designs into fun adult fashion. The brand’s first set of Hawaiian shirts in 2020 featured fabric designs inspired by “My Neighbor Totoro” (1988) and “Kiki’s Delivery Service” (1989).

This year’s new line in the series is inspired by “Porco Rosso” (1992) and “Princess Mononoke” (1997). It includes four different items that come in two styles each for a total of eight unique designs. First, the “Porco Rosso” style features a blue background reminiscent of both the sky and the ocean, important settings in the film about an Italian WWI fighter turned pig. Glimpses of aircraft such as the Savoia S-21 and the Curtiss R3C-2, as well as the Hotel Adriano, are recurring in the fabric pattern.

Second, the “Princess Mononoke” style features important character designs such as San, Moro, Yakul, Okkoto-nushi (the boar god), Yamainu (the mountain wolf) and the charming kodama tree spirits on dark brown background. It’s the perfect time to celebrate this particular film, as next month will mark its 25th anniversary since its release.

Here are the four items in this year’s range in a bit more detail.

Hawaiian shirts / 12,980 yen each

GBL’s popular Hawaiian shirts are made from 52% cotton and 48% rayon, making them soft to the touch and suitable for sensitive skin. They are available in four unisex sizes of small, medium, large and extra large.

Hawaiian shirt dresses / 19,580 yen each

In a first for the clothing brand, this year’s collection features Hawaiian shirt-style dresses.


The removable waist straps will definitely come in handy on days when you want to eat a really big lunch.


Kinchaku (drawstring bags) / 3,520 yen each

For a bit of traditional Japanese flair to enhance your next outing in a Ghibli-themed yukata, you can instead jump for a kinchaku drawstring purse. Each purse measures 32 x 37 centimeters without the shoulder strap.


GBL’s 2022 Hawaiian line is on sale in the GBL store at the Miyashita Park shopping complex in Shibuya, at the Shinsaibashi Donguri Kyowakoku in Osaka and in its online shop.
