Square Enix today announces that two brands from different realms: fashion and video gaming, have come together in the latest issue of Arena Homme+ where characters from the recent game Final Fantasy XIII-2 showcase Prada’s 2012 Spring/Summer men’s collection as part of the 25th Anniversary celebration of the Final Fantasy series.
In the latest issue of Arena Homme+ which goes on sale on Thursday 12th April, a cast of characters from Final Fantasy- XIII-2 including Lightning, Noel, Snow, Sazh and Hope are styled for action as they step out of their usual outfits and into Prada.
“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, Editor of Arena Homme+. “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.”
Yoshinori Kitase, Producer of Final Fantasy- XIII-2 added, “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.”
