Prada has decided to hire a few virtual models to show off its new duds. In the latest issue of British fashion mage Arena Homme +, characters from Final Fantasy XIII-2 are modeling Prada's 2012 Spring/Summer men's collection.
"Our Spring issue focuses on a world of direction and escapism, and having a visually stunning videogame franchise such as FINAL FANTASY work alongside us and a leading fashion brand like Prada to create something so unique is incredible," said Max Pearmain, Arena Homme+'s editor. "I've always been interested by the power of videogames and their place in society, and the amount of work that's gone into this project blows my mind. We're incredibly pleased with the result."
The CGI images of the characters and clothing were made by Square Enix's Visual Works studio. The character designers from the FF games also contributed.
"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," said FFXIII-2 producer Yoshinori Kitase.
A few images from the 12-page feature are below. The issue of Arena Homme+ goes on sale on April 12th.
