Marc Jacobs just scored a major celebrity dressing placement. He's signed on to dress one of Japan's biggest pop stars, Hatsune Miku. She's a holograph.
According to the Telegraph, Miku is a 3D 'Vocaloid.' That means she has a computer generated voice and her image is projected using synthesizing technology to create a humanoid persona. Despite the fact that she's, you know, basically a computer, Miku routinely sells out stadiums and has a loyal fan base.
Miku's most recent project is a stage Opera called 'The End'--a departure from her normally pop song fare. To make the rebranding complete, Miku is also ditching her signature school girl outfit for something a little more grown up: Louis Vuitton checks.
Jacobs decided to 'dress' the star in several Spring 2013 Louis Vuitton looks for the dramatic animated opera. It's a pretty interesting sight to behold: You can watch the teaser for the show (below) or you wait for it to come to a theater near you. Apparently, 'The End,' which debuted in Japan in December, was so popular that it's going on the road first to Tokyo, then to Paris. We wouldn't be surprised if it eventually made its way to North America--but by then Jacobs will hopefully have a whole new wardrobe for her.
