piranha - the eyes have it.

Coco Chanel Moon!

I found some rather awesome art while wandering around the Internet today...

“Domo Arigato” as a series takes a look at the paralleled cultural influences of early childhood many of us have experienced and or have seen exhibited today. Classic Japanese cultural icons are infused with luxury branding brilliantly creating an conversation around the identities of the youth today.  -- design collector

Sailor Moon meets Coco Chanel

Artist mago:   Whether Sailor Moon, Son Goku or Pokemon – all these Japanese anime figures were a big part of our childhood.

Mago’s biggest inspiration for this project was to combine classic Japanese anime characters with luxury brands like Gucci, LV or Chanel to show the brand affinity of the Japanese culture.

The series is also strongly influenced by Mago’s unique illustration style he created over the past few years that is characterized by a strong love for details.
