Video games and high fashion might seem like strange bedfellows, but Prada and Final Fantasy got together to see if they could make some magic happen.
The Italian fashion house styled characters from the insanely popular video game franchise in Spring 2012 menswear for a spread in Arena Homme+ Magazine.
The result? I say: creepy. I prefer to see fashion modeled on real humans and not CGI characters, thank you very much. But I might not be the best judge, since I find video game characters to be pretty creepy in general, no matter what they're wearing.
But I've got to hand it to Arena Homme+ for pulling together this collaboration: even though gaming culture and fashion seem like they would be diametrically opposed to each other, there might be a good amount of overlap. I can't think of other industries that believe as much in the power of fantasy as these two unlikely friends, video games and fashion.
