A couple of days ago, we were talking about Prada designing for the Italian Olympic Sailing Team. If that was mostly because of Prada’s CEO (Miuccia’s husband, Patrizio Bertelli) passion for sailing, I’m really curious where this unusual collaboration with Final Fantasy (the famous RPG game) came from!
In short: Prada designed the costumes for Final Fantasy’s 25th Anniversary’s characters. To bring even more attention on the FF fashion matter, the game characters lined up for a pictorial in Arena Homme+ with clothes from Prada’s Spring Summer 2012 men collection (there’s an entire press release on that matter here). Call me conservative, but this editorial is as creepy as possible! I have nothing against couture gaming, but CGI fashion pictorials work against my style. Completely. But maybe that’s just me. How do you feel about CGI (computer generated imagery) pictorials in fashion magazines? (if Final Fantasy is what you’re looking for, you can buy your copy here)
