In what is perhaps one of the most bizarre collaborations The Sims has ever done, perhaps even beating Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats stuff pack, Maxis and Moschino have announced a collaboration – the Capsule Collection.
Moschino is an Italian clothing company which has partnered with Maxis to be able to create this new collection, available from Saturday 13th April, and could be viewed as a slightly late April Fools joke.
In a variety of photo shoots that have been released to promote the collaboration, they mix the world of The Sims with the models promoting the #MoschinoXTheSims collaboration. Real people in the world of The Sims 4.
“The Sims and Moschino collaboration is exciting for fans of both brands as it brings together two industry leaders both known for a celebration of individuality. This capsule collection will feature iconic motifs from The Sims reimagined as Moschino Couture pieces such as a Plumbob bathing suit, a Freezer Bunny cell phone cover and a Uni-Lama T-shirt. These special items highlight the freedom of self-expression and creativity that both the Moschino brand and The Sims franchise are known for. One item from the capsule collection, a Freezer Bunny hoodie, will also be released after the event within all of The Sims current titles including The Sims 4, The Sims Mobile and The Sims FreePlay”
I will admit, some of the designs that have been floating around on social media and discussed in the quote above do spark my interest. In particular the ‘Uni-Lama’ T-Shirt, which seems like a huge hint at a university expansion pack… or perhaps I am reading too much into this.
If you are excited for this then you will be able to pick these up at Moschino boutiques and from their website. There will also be future in-game announcements relating to this collaboration in all current Sims titles – The Sims 4, The Sims FreePlay and The Sims Mobile – as we head into the future also.
I don’t think these are the sort of clothes that I will be picking up, but it’s interesting to see The Sims team collaborate with different brands and try different things. I think, at least for me, the photos of models posing in The Sims 4 is extremely bizarre. It’s creative, but it’s also strange.
To whoever decided that would be a good idea, I have one thing to say…
