Rose of Versailles' Oscar, Andre Promote British Trench Coats
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Oscar and Andre are taking some time off from the French Revolution to model Aquascutum trench coats. The British "luxury brand" has price points to match Marie Antionette's budget with coats costing as much as US$1,250. The ads featuring Lady Oscar and Andre were put up throughout Japan.
A special site will also launch on September 12 with an exclusive manga chapter. The story, which visitors can read for one month, follows Oscar and Andre as they search for Marie Antoinette after she goes missing in London. When they discover that she's alright, the group decides to take the opportunity to have a holiday and see the sights. Aquascutum stores will also distribute the "The Rose of Versailles × Aquascutum -London no Kyūjitsu-" chapter as a booklet starting on September 16.
The site also notes a special collaborative "motion movie" will debut on September 28.
