The heroes from Final Fantasy XIII-2 go from questing to modeling stylish clothes.
Well, this is something you don’t see every day. In a rather unique collaboration, Square Enix has partnered with male fashion magazine Arena Homme+ to feature several Final Fantasy XIII-2 characters modelling the latest fashions from Italian label Prada.
Lightning, Snow, Sazh and others will showcase several selections from Prada’s upcoming 2012 Spring/Summer collection, and honestly, if you thought they looked odd in their normal get-up, there’s something even more surreal about seeing these monster-fighting heroes decked out in men’s casual outfits designed by a high-end European clothes line.
“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,” stated 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.”
Those interested can pick up the issue in question on April 12th, or order it through Amazon.
