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.
