You can now buy Porco Rosso’s sunglasses

Studio Ghibli may or may not be in the business of making movies anymore, but it is now firmly in the business of making replica sunglasses for its 22-year-old movie about a WWI fighter ace who’s also a pig. Ghibli has teamed up with a Japanese sunglasses manufacturer for two pairs of official Porco Rosso sunglasses, based on the 1992 movie of the same name. They come in two styles: the $480 “Period Piece Model”—which, as the name suggests, is made using period-appropriate material—and the “Standard Model,” which is made of plastic. Purchasing either of them will definitely make you look like a cartoon pig fighter pilot, for whatever reason you might have to want that.
