Miku Hatsune Outfit Created by Marc Jacobs
UPDATE TO OUR PREVIOUS ARTICLE: Here
When someone thinks of Miku Hatsune, Louis Vuitton would probably be the furthest thing away from the subject they could imagine. However, Louis Vuitton’s Marc Jacobs acted as Miku’s wardrobe manager for the first Vocaloid opera, The End which started its tour this past Thursday.
Miku’s main outfit for the event was a checkerboard two-piece outfit and was inspired by Louis Vuitton’s own 2013 Spring/Summer collection. However, the outfit was met with mixed reviews from the fans as they complained that the outfit made Miku unrecognizable. This response was met by the creation of a life-size statue of Miku in that outfit (Not really, but they just happened one after another). Even though Miku is only 16, the statue portrays her as a full-fledged adult to fully complement the two-piece.
The opera is just as trippy as many of Hatsune’s MVs and has just finished its Tokyo tour. It is scheduled to be in France this November. Keiichiro Shibuya, the guy behind this whole event, has aimed to create the first opera without any human appearances. The opera will be without any human musicians, stage actors, and singers which will all be replaced by Miku and Vocaloid with a story being represented entirely by computer generated images. Hopefully the idea gains traction so we’ll be able to witness a modern technological spin of classic mediums of performed arts.
Here’s a trailer for the opera:
