Do you remember waking up early every weekend just to tune in to Saturday-morning cartoons with a bowl of cereal in your hand? And when the only worry we had was missing our favourite shows because we slept in? Those were truly the simpler days we wish we could indulge in today if not for our busy schedules! But luckily for us grown-ups, we get to relive them (well, in a way) as fashion brands are collaborating with our favourite childhood cartoons, comics, anime – you name it, making us feel all sorts of nostalgia and excitement just like how it was during our younger years. These collections not only bring a smile to our faces but add a playful twist to our wardrobes while showing off our most-loved cartoon characters. So, if you’re getting bored of your basic tees, scroll down below to see what’s in store this season:

1. H&M Divided X Popeye

Who can forget the ever-iconic, spinach-eating sailor from our childhood? Collaborating with the classic animated TV show, Popeye, H&M Divided has released a new collection exclusively on Zalora that’ll let you relive those carefree memories (and maybe of eating that not-so-popular leafy greens – which you might’ve even come to love by now!). Not shying away from colours, the styles incorporate the cartoon’s icons and notable logos onto a bright yet calming palette from shades of teal to light purple, beige and white. With joy-inducing pieces that range from sailor tops to oversized and cropped tops, dresses, shorts and skirts that tie the whole collection perfectly, you’ll be spoiled for choice!

Shop the collection (priced between RM39.95 and RM149.95) here.

2. Levi’s X Felix the Cat

Levi’s has us ‘feline’ excited over its Fall/Winter 2021 collection with Felix the Cat! Playfully exploring the idea of Felix in college, the American brand has launched a collegiate-inspired collection collaborating with the famous cartoon titled ‘Felix the Graduate’. Putting a spin on university-themed styles, the collection brings preppy college styles and ‘90s streetwear together with a range of modern shapes and silhouettes from half-and-half tops featuring rugby stripes and an embroidered Felix patch, university hoodies with Felix graphics and classic Levi’s trousers with a twist. Besides that, look out for accessories like a reversible bucket hat, carry-all tote and duffle bag, along with a reversible web belt to pull your whole look together! If all of that sounds exciting to you, you’re in luck as the collection drops today in all Levi’s stores and online.

3. Monki X My Little Pony

It’s raining cuteness with Monki’s capsule collection inspired by My Little Pony! From playing with the popular toys and video games to watching the franchise cartoons, we now get to wear them on our sleeves, literally. While we’ve seen other My Little Pony collaborations in the past, we’re quite excited for this one as it marks Monki’s first-ever license fashion drop. Ranging from apparel to accessories like belts, caps and keychains, the limited-edition capsule collection features My Little Pony graphics against pastel bubblegum hues we love! With key pieces that include a matching mesh top and briefs, acid-wash jeans and tie-dye tees, it’s not hard to fall in love with the charm that My Little Pony exudes.

Look out for the collection (priced between RM23 and RM150) in Monki stores.

Fans of Pokémon will get to indulge in two different art styles with Uniqlo as the Japanese retailer is teaming up with two talented artists for its ‘Pokémon Meets Artists UT (Uniqlo T-shirt)’ collection. Working together with Meguru Yamaguchi, a Brooklyn-based artist well-known for his chaotic-like brush strokes, and James Jarvis, a celebrated British artist who injects cartoon-styled looks into his artwork, the joint collaboration presents a line-up for both adults and kids that feature the characters in the artists’ signature touches separately. Consisting of tees and sweatshirts, this collection is perfect to show off your personality – whether bold or playful – and love for the popular series!

Shop the collection (priced between RM39.90 and RM59.90 for kids, and from RM59.90 to RM79.90 for adults) here from early November 2021.

5. Pomelo X Disney

If you loved the previous collaborations with Disney Princesses a few months back, you’ll be happy to know that the franchise is expanding once again with Pomelo! With a limited-edition collection launching next week, you’ll get a chance to play rebel or royal as the range boasts a 29-piece line-up of tops, bottoms and caps adorned with icons from Disney Princesses – think Ariel, Cinderella and Snow White, alongside Lady Tremaine, Maleficent and Ursula. Taking inspiration from millennial maximalism and elaborate streetwear trends, expect to find looks with voluminous sleeves, ruffles, raw finishing and slit detailing that add a romantic, feminine touch with a cool rebellious appeal.

Shop the collection (priced between RM75 and RM175) on Pomelo.com, in store at 1 Utama or on the Pomelo App via iOS and Android from 29th September 2021.

The Peanuts gang is joining forces with yet another fashion brand, and this time it’s Pomelo! Created by Charles M. Schulz in 1950, your favourite characters like Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the bunch from the popular comic strip are emblazoned onto Pomelo X Peanuts’ limited-edition collection. Featuring a monochrome and earth-tone colour palette, the lovable characters are spread across pieces like blazers, cropped cardigans and tops, matching co-ord sets and many more that can be effortlessly paired with your existing wardrobe!
