Produced by studio TMS Entertainment and streaming on Crunchyroll outside Asia, Bananya revolves around the lives of tiny playful cats who live in bananas. The titular character has a lifelong dream of bathing in chocolate with all of his banana cat friends. Until then, Bananya and his pals are trying to live their lives as best as they can in a normal household.
The Gucci x Crunchyroll Bananya collection features women’s apparel, including cotton T-shirts ($550), sweatshirts ($1100), and hoodies ($1250). Available in white, black, green, and pink, these clothing pieces are adorned with signature Gucci graphic stylings and adorable illustrations of Bananya, his three younger siblings called the Bananya Bunch, and Tabby Bananya.
The collection also includes Bananya x Gucci Rhyton sneaker for women ($890) and Bananya x Gucci Ace sneaker for men and women ($690). Both shoes feature a cute graphic of Bananya and Tabby Bananya sitting in their respective bananas.
Rounding up the collection is a number of jewelry pieces, including a Bananya Bunch brooch ($450) made with fabric and colored crystals. There’s also a chain necklace ($970) in metal with gold finish featuring a Bananya pendant crafted with enamel and crystals.
The entire Gucci x Crunchyroll Bananya collection is now available for purchase on Gucci.com and in select Gucci stores worldwide.
“Anime is a pop culture mainstay and our new collection with Gucci celebrating the eternally adorable Bananya is just another example of the power of this medium to transcend categories,” said John Leonhardt, head of consumer products at Crunchyroll, in a statement. “We are thrilled to be working with Gucci to bring this playful collection to fans around the world.”
This isn’t the first time Gucci has featured an anime series in one of its collection. Earlier this year, Gucci welcomed the Chinese New Year with a capsule collection based on Doraemon. The luxury fashion brand also released a range of special items based on the anime series Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure in the past through a collaboration with its creator Hirohiko Araki and Spur Magazine to mark the reopening of the brand’s Shinjuku store in Japan.
