Final Fantasy characters get dressed in Prada clothes
Lightning, Noel, Snow, Sazh and Hope, characters of the latest version of the Final Fantasy video game have replaced their customary warrior outfits by looks of the Prada Spring/Summer 2012 collection. This claim could seem a nonsense but, actually, that is not sciencie-fiction; in fact, the video games and fashion industries -that so far had been very different and disconnected fields- are now collaborating; the reason is simple: The successful video game saga is turning 25 this year.
The most important characters of Final Fantasy XIII-2 have become models to participate as the stars of a photo shooting made by the masculine magazine Arena Homme+. “Our Spring issue focuses on a world of direction and escapism, and having a visually stunning video game franchise such as Final Fantasy work alongside us and a leading fashion brand like Prada to create something so unique is incredible,” Max Pearmain -editor of Arena Homme+- explained.
For this production, the digital images have been created by the Square Enix Visual Works studio in Japan, along with the designers of the characters of the video game. Yoshinori Kitase, Final Fantasy XIII-2 productor, has also expressed a view and apparently he is very satisfied with the final result: “The Final Fantasy series is known for its creativity and innovation; so working with Prada, a renowned fashion house with such beautiful clothing, was a very exciting opportunity. The images we have been able to create together are vibrant and unique”.
With this new partnership between fashion and video games, from now on all the fans of the saga will be able to see -through 12 pages of Arena Homme+- how their favorite characters pose like true models with T-shirts, checkered shirts, jacket suits, and laced shoes.
