As a brand, Donguri Closet focuses on the strong heroines of Studio Ghibli’s memorable films and provides trendy goods for image-conscious fans. We've seen dresses modelled on Kiki's outfit in the movie "Kiki's Delivery Service," and even Calcifer's bacon and eggs from "Howl's Moving Castle" in earring form.
Now for those interested in interior design, the brand has released two Studio Ghibli-inspired candles. The stylish and minimalist design is perfect for a bright and modern interior, and are the perfect way to add a low-key anime flair to a Ghibli fan’s room.
The two designs each focus on a different beloved film from the iconic animation studio’s back catalogue, "Kiki’s Delivery Service" and "Whisper of the Heart."
The Kiki candle has a citrus scent and the holder features a quote from Kiki’s letter to her parents written in English plus an illustration of the protagonist herself.
The "Whisper of the Heart" version, which has a berry fragrance, stars Baron Humbert von Gikkingen. Known as ‘The Baron," he’s a character in both "Whisper of the Heart" and "The Cat Returns." The quote incorporated into the design is the line that The Baron says to Shizuku when he appears in her dream.
The gel candles are transparent and contain various dried flowers, fruits and other pretty decorations, and once the candle itself has been fully burned up, the aesthetically pleasing holders can still be reused as ornaments.
If you think either of these would be the perfect addition for your room, they can be found at Donguri Closet, or in selected branches of Donguri Kyowakoku with a Donguri Closet Corner, for 2,700 yen (plus tax).
