The Fashions and Art of ‘Persona 3’ Designer Shigenori Soejima
By David Brothers
I grew up on cape comics, where fashion is largely a simple and backwards affair. That’s not a problem, exactly, so much as a result of the focus of superhero comics. Characters wear things like loose t-shirts, ambiguously baggy jeans, and no-name shoes at home, and fantastic costumes when they’re out and about. There’s a distinct lack of modern — or even acceptable — fashion in a lot of the books I grew up reading, so now I can’t get enough of great — or at least wearable — fashion in my entertainment.
On sale later this month from UDON Entertainment, Persona 3: Official Design Works is a collection of design material for the video game Persona 3 by Shigenori Soejima. Soejima definitely knows his way around fashion. After the jump, we’ve got an exclusive preview and some quick thoughts on exactly why his work is so nice.
