Once considered 'only for children', the anime culture has grown exponentially over the years.
More and more brands are tapping into anime as a source of inspiration, with designer brand Coach being the more recent one with their pretty cool 'Naruto' collection
And now, a skin care brand has follwed suit and we have to say, it's pretty cool too.
Unfolding the legend
Just in time for the holiday season, SK-II has unveiled their brand new, anime-inspired PITERA™ Facial Essence Treatment bottles.
And they look absolutely gorgeous. Take a look:
These limited-edition bottles was designed by a Brooklyn-based Japanese artist named Fantasista Utamaro
, who said that he wants to “capture the world’s love for Japanese culture” through his colourful manga-inspired SK-II bottles.
Pretty cool stuff, we have to say.
Not only that, to promote these limited edition bottles, SK-II also released a short film featuring imma
, a Japanese virtual human; actress Haruka Ayase
; singer-songwriter Leah Dou
and supermodel Behati Prinsloo Levine
In the clip clearly inspired by an anime, we follow imma as she gains superpowers in a fantastical journey.
Hey, maybe she can join the Marvel Cinematic Universe after this!
