Lol with the exception of the rings and hoodies, I hardly see any connection.

Ditto. I'm not going to buy a tote bag just because someone draws Homura holding it.

(But oh god that pink backpack is so adorable gah)

The printed pattern on the bags and dress is from the Rebellion movie - it's the background of the spoiler[false world barrier].

If I was 20 years younger maybe I'd consider getting an ensemble. LOL. These are really nice.

I think the connection is that the style and color coordination of these "sort of" fit the characters based on their magical girl outfits. The styling I'd call "clean modern urban" (is there an actual name for it?) which I think fits the whole visual design of the show. And YES, these make me wish I were a "puella" so I could wear nice outfits like these (Kyubey, I'm ready to make a contract...what? guys can't?Booo)

The hoodies I want in my life. I like that there are little things with these type of clothing tie-ins that isn't too obvious in terms of relating to the visuals of the series.

Wow, they're soooo cute~! I wonder if they have an online store I could buy from, because I really want those hoodies from the second wave

It's cute, but too basic with barely a connection. The shoes from Super Groupies were perfect.

They're designs inspired by the characters, not necessarily having to be related to be directly related the series itself. If anytime they did something like this it had to have direct tie-ins to the series, everything would start to look a little samey.

TBH that's what I prefer! Clothes are a lot cuter with color schemes or motifs that match characters instead of just putting logos or grapics over everything.

I love Homura's outfits!! The skirt especially X3 I actually would really love to have the matching hoodie set I love how the stars are in the underside of the hoody! Esp if they come down all long like that would look cute with sum leggings.

This for the show where street clothes apparently don't exist.

(I like to imagine a middle school in Kasamino where the girls' uniform includes shorts, a crop-top, and a hoodie.)
