Megumi Kakomoto (CSUN ’11) created Wes Anderson Special Collector’s Edition as student project back in 2011 as part of a packaging class assignment. It wasn’t until recently that it surfaced up to our attention and we simply have to feature it.
“I always liked Wes Anderson films – how they were very stylized. The stories, certain camera angles they use, specific font used, character developments etc. I wanted to capture that whole look & feel with the packaging, so I decided to use the suitcase as a container – which you can see in the “The Darjeeling Limited”.
Once you open the suitcase, you see all the different pieces of clothing inside – each costume represents a film. Included within each individual films are 2 discs; the film itself and a CD soundtrack.
It is a great set if you are fan of Wes Anderson for sure!”
