The world’s most popular virtual pop idol just gotten herself a new fan – fashion designer Marc Jacobs. In her latest operetta The End, virtual “Vocaloid” Hatsune Miku is in a head-to-toe outfit created by Louis Vuitton and the brand’s artistic director, Marc Jacobs. Worked along side stage director Toshiki Okada and digital music composer Keiichiro Shibuya, Jacobs decided to start-off Miku’s costume design with Louis Vuitton’s iconic Damier pattern as his base. After a process of elimination, Jacobs and his studio submitted an illustration, one with a one-of-the-kind two-piece Louis Vuitton dress in black and white Damier pattern.
However, it wasn’t till last night when Louis Vuitton unveiled the final design at The End‘s premiere in Shibuya’s Bunkamura Orchard Hall. Hosted by Frédéric Grangie, President and CEO of Louis Vuitton Japan, the red carpet gathering saw the likes of VERBAL, his wife Yoon, Mademoiselle Yulia, artist Masaki Yokobe, and a life-size mock-up of Hatsune Miku herself. The End will be playing till next month with a scheduled concert in Paris’ Theatre du Chatelet Opera House at the end of this year.
