Artist Francis Phommisai is combining two pop culture fascinations into one amazing virtual photo series. The project, dubbed pokexfashion, combines high fashion and gaming in hilarious and fabulous images depicting designer ads from fashion houses like Gucci, Alexander Wang, and Balenciaga being hijacked by Pokémon. Here are some of our favorites.
We're definitely seeing a lot less Pidgeys on this Tumblr account than we are on Pokémon Go, so that in and of itself is a welcome relief. Not to mention there is just something very chill about seeing artsy, unattainable fashion ads being totally bombarded by something so fun and easily accessible. This was definitely the mash-up we needed to jump start our Monday.
What do you think of the series? Any Pokémon you wish you would have seen? Be sure to check out more of Francis's work.
