In honor of New York Fashion Week, I’m unearthing this awesome high concept Tumblr: Pokemon x Fashion. Creator Francis Phommisai, a 23-year-old Zara merchandiser in Ontario, creates cool montages by embedding vibrant Pokemon characters into high-fashion editorial spreads for different brands like Prada, Hermes and Miu Miu. The Kenzo team even tweeted about the Tumblr, amused seeing their collection next to Pikachu and Butterfree.
At first, it may strike as an odd pairing actual vibes well considering how influenced designers are by Japanese pop art.
Phommisai told the Daily Beast earlier this year that Jinx was his favorite Pokemon, if only because she is the most fashion-forward.
“What other Pokémon could rock blonde hair and pink lipstick? Also she’s one of the only Pokémons who wear clothing—I guess you would say the other ones are naked,” he said.
