Sailor Moon and Anna Sui release accessory line for the anime’s 30th anniversary

The limited edition of this accessory line features eight different accessories like handkerchiefs, pouches, and shopping bags. 

We predict that the handkerchief will already be a bestseller. The first features Anna Sui’s iconic rose and the spiral moon rod against a striking violet background. The butterfly motif also showcases the symbolic colour of the 10 Sailor Scouts. Meanwhile, there’s another handkerchief in pink featuring Sailor Scout pens, and another lavender hanky that elegantly presents the silhouettes of all the 10 Sailor Scouts. With all these signature Anna Sui colours — like pink, purple, and black — fans can either go for a soft or tough style. 

What’s more, there are Sailor Moon x Anna Sui hand towels. The handkerchiefs cost ¥2,000 each, while these hand towels cost ¥1,000 each. 

Need a new pouch to store cosmetics, toiletries, and other basic necessities? Get a load of these Sailor Moon pouches that are — you guessed it — in Anna Sui colours of purple and black. The zippers are in the shape of a butterfly (another Anna Sui symbol), and the central illustration represents the 10 Sailor Scouts. These pouches cost ¥4,000 each. 

Lastly, the Sailor Moon and Anna Sui shopping bags are eco-friendly and simply perfect. They come with a small pouch to store the bags when not in use. They also bear similar Sailor Moon designs to the handkerchief set, but the back of these shopping bags are decked with Anna Sui’s iconic butterflies. You really get the best of both worlds with this accessory line!
