The main character, Porco Rosso, from the classic Hayao Miyazaki animated film, gets his personal headwear crafted for the real world. The first piece is the Porco Rosso Flight Cap, a staple cap he wears when boarding his crimson “flying boat” the Savoia S.21. This cap is made from premium cowhide from Himeji, has handmade goggles, and has a lining that’s stamped with official Porco Rosso branding.
Second is the Crimson Pig Porco Rosso Hat, a hat that our hero often wears with a trench coat and sunglasses. This fedora is made from fine-grained merino wool, is hand-dyed, and has an extra tall crown. Priced at ¥66,000 JPY and ¥22,000 JPY (approximately $600 and $200 USD) respectively, the CA4LA Studio Ghibli Porco Rosso capsule is made-to-order and will take up to three months to deliver. Those interested can head to CA4LA’s dedicated webpage.
