British fashion label JW Anderson has unveiled new bags inspired by South Korean anime series “Run Hany.”

The accessories, which appear to be a collaboration project as part of the brand’s new season collection, come in at least three colors -- blue, orange and white -- according to a recent post on Instagram.

In another photo, one bag has a picture of the face of the series’ main character Hany, along with the JW logo in orange.

“Not long till the show,” the caption reads, with a hashtag referring to the anime.

The show, which centers on a teenage girl in Seoul who grows as a professional runner despite obstacles, was one of Korea’s most popular TV animation series in the late ’80s. It is based on a cartoon series published from 1985-87.

JW Anderson is a fashion label founded in 2008 by Jonathan Anderson, who is from Northern Ireland.

In January, Spanish luxury brand Loewe made headlines after unveiling its collaboration featuring “Spirited Away,” the Oscar-winning anime film from Japan’s Studio Ghibli.

In a similar move, Italian luxury fashion house Gucci also collaborated with Disney for its Mickey Mouse collection in 2020.
