I feel so sorry for the models who really did wear the clothes in the original photos. I imagine the conversation going something like this.
Model: "This is great! I'm going to be in a Prada ad! This will really help my career. Thank you so much!"
Prada Rep: "Yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaah, about that - um, there's going to be some digital post-production on this."
Model: "Oh, yeah, this stuff gets Photoshopped all the time, I know."
Prada Rep: "Well, we won't be Photoshopping you, exactly."
Prada Rep: "See, it goes like this..."
When I read the someone was making a Final Fantasy brand of clothing I wondered why technicolor, over designed monstrosities would be shown. These clothes actually look pretty normal. Don't get me wrong, their art style has its place; that place just isn't the real world.
This is so incredibly dumb, I almost can't believe it's real. Then again, I'd be lying if I said this was the worst idea I've ever seen executed by a horribly misguided multinational corporation.
Also I'm with everyone who expected this to be some kind of far out experiment in high fashion. Considering what I've seen of high fashion, I figure it couldn't hurt to let the FF art team take a stab at real life clothing for a change.
