To celebrate six years of collaborations, Louis Vuitton and Takashi Murakami created “Superflat First Love.”

“Superflat First Love” is a cartoon short created by Takashi Murakami, with many hints of Louis Vuitton scattered throughout. From the animal design to store placement, there is a good marriage of animation and advertisement.

Done in only a way this duo could, the video is a must see for anime fashion fans.

Implications - Japanese anime has had a significant international influence, especially those characters and series that crossed over into mainstream North American consumer culture, like Sailor Moon and Hello Kitty. As a result, fashion, accessory designers, artists and other entertainers are inspired by these iconic characters.
