Curated.Works: Manga Legends – Saint Seiya

The Manga Legends series is finally coming to an end and for the third story, Cristian Gross and I have decided to look at one of our favourite mangas – Saint Seiya.

I have been a big fan of this manga since I was a kid and the 12 horoscopes part is always my favourite section of the story. I think having Athena and Seiya in Lanvin is a perfect choice as the womenswear really reflects the feminine side of the character, while the menswear adds an extra bold touch to Seiya. Now let’s read what Cristian has to say about these images.

” I think the characters in Saint Seiya are always too serious for me so I have decided to add a playful touch here. If you are a fan of this series, you should know Athena (Saori) is always in danger and constantly asking for help. I have decided to add a little humour by adding the jewellery pieces from Lanvin F/W 2013 collection on her and the words are somehow ironic to the character.”
