The Lulu Felice x NANA wedding dress collaboration continues KURAUDIA’s legacy of collaborating with the biggest fantasy titles. They are among many collaborating on Disney’s latest animated film, Wish, along with Spy x Family. Wish appears in KURAUDIA’s 9th partnership with Disney.
Yazawa’s NANA is one of the best-selling manga in history with over 50 million copies in circulation worldwide. The series ended One Piece’s streak of five consecutive years winning the title of best-selling manga in 2005. First published in Shueisha’s Cookie magazine from May 2000, NANA has been on hiatus since 2009, leaving fans patiently waiting for its return. The manga has been praised for its mature themes and compelling drama. Here is a new illustration by Yazawa, commemorating the wedding line:
VIZ licenses NANA in North America and describes the series: Nana Komatsu is a young woman suffering from a series of boyfriend problems. Moving to Tokyo, she hopes to take control of her life and leave all those troublesome accidents behind. She’s looking for love and hopes to find it in the big city. On the contrary, Nana Osaki is calm, confident and focused. She swaggers into town and proceeds to kick open the door to Tokyo’s underground punk scene. She has a dream and won’t give up until she becomes Japan’s No. 1 rock’n’roll superstar.
This is a story about two 20 year old women with the same name. Even though they came from completely different backgrounds, they somehow met and became close friends. Nana’s world is one bursting with sex, music, fashion, gossip and all-night parties.
