Some well-loved manga characters defining many a childhood past have been updated with elements of European couture in this new project by Mago. The Russian-born Germany-based designer and illustrator currently works as the Art Director of Parasol Island in Dusseldorf while finding the time to freelance on projects like “Domo Arigato.” Meaning “thank you very much” in Japanese, the online exhibition is inspired by Mago’s love for Japanese anime figures and his passion for fashion luxury brands. The series features detailed reworkings of Astro Boy, Mega Man, Sailor Moon, Son Goku, Hello Kitty, Totoro, Super Sonic, Doraemon and Pokemon with visual aesthetics borrowed from brands including Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Martin Margiela, Gucci, YSL and even Stussy.
