Louis Vuitton Unveil Lightning From Final Fantasy As Their Newest Model
Because using real people is so 2015.
The world of modelling just got that little bit more exclusive thanks to uber label Louis Vuitton, who have revealed that the face of their SS16 range won't be a real person at all and instead will be Lightning, who you probably know best as a character from Final Fantasy XIII.
While the overlap between the super rich lovers of LV and those who are avid fans of the gaming franchise reated by Square Enix might be pretty slim, it's an interesting move from the brand's creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière.
Having just revealed the first campaign images and teaser trailer over on Instagram, he's once again been showing off his fascination with virtual worlds that exists only within our computers by choosing the FFXIII protagonist as his latest protégé.
Naturally the soft pink leather jackets and embellished handbags from the spring campagin look edgy af with Lightning and her dusky rose locks wielding them like some sort of weapon and it's got us pretty excited to see the full set of ads they've been working on.
The idea behind it is to mirror the idea of reality becoming fanstasy, which was evident in the brand's SS16 show at Fashion Week last season. If you missed it, you can check out the full collection below:
Well if that doesn't prove that fashion is utterly badass, we're not sure what will.
Let us know what you make of LV's latest model with a tweet over @MTVStyleIntl way.
