Square Enix has teamed up with Prada to have characters from Final Fantasy XIII-2 model some clothes from the 2012 Spring/Summer men’s clothing collection in the April 2012 issue of Arena Homme+.
As part of the “Final Fantasy” series’ 25th anniversary, a cast of characters, including Lightning, Noel and Snow, trade their usual outfits for Prada in the issue, which goes on sale on April 12th.
“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 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.
