Just hot off the heels of the Gucci x The North Face collaboration, the Italian fashion house releases another whimsical collaboration featuring the famous Japanese manga character, Doraemon. Adorned with ox horns (in celebration of the Year of the Ox), the adorable cartoon can be found on ready-to-wear, accessories, sneakers, small leather goods and even timepieces.
