The Space Pirate.
A success from the '80ies, the space pirate is an unforgettable character: his long-limbed figure, the cloak, the black patch on the eye and the scar on his cheek have all become popular and recognizable details. On his spaceship, called Arcadia, Harlock throws himself on a solo mission to defend the Earth. Despite the traps and tricks organised by his enemies, he always manages to escape. A story with an happy ending, but full of drama, action and unexpected twists.
Values and symbols.
Harlock is an anti-hero with a deep understanding of the people around him. An outlaw who dreams to save the world from its cruel destiny. Humans have become slaves of themselves and of the progress they created which has taken them away from friendship, love and nature. Captain Harlock becomes the model of a man who is true to himself and to his values and who is ready to die for them: a unique figure that cannot leave the public indifferent. A romantic figure with a special charm and surrounded by important symbols: his flag (the Jolly Roger) which signifies the freedom he so strongly defends. The spaceship Arcadia which stands for a community, a family rather than just a place. All these elements and many more are contained in the "vintage" style guide extension which will enable to translate the popular hero into fashion and high-end lines of products.
