The latest issue of British fashion magazine Arena Homme+, on sale April 12, features characters from Final Fantasy XIII-2 showing off Prada’s spring / summer 2012 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, 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.”
“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 Yoshinori Kitase, producer of Final Fantasy XIII-2.
The magazine contains a 12-page feature on the line, with CGI images developed by Square Enix’s Visual Works studio in Japan.
