Maserati collaborated with Hiroshi Fujiwara to launch a special edition of Ghibli Fragment in Japan. Mr. Fujiwara himself is a world-renowned streetwear designer. He is the founder of Fragment Design and is known as the godfather of Japanese street culture. More about him, later.
There are two versions of Fragment-Ghibli Operanera and Ghibli Operabianca. The two-tone duo are based on GranLusso variants, one in bright/opaque black, the other in bright white and opaque black. Only 175 special edition models are produced in the global market.
Unique exterior decorations include the Fragment logo on the grille, 20-inch Urano matte black wheels, the special Fragment logo on the C-pillar, and the “M157110519FRG” code on the fender, just below the iconic three-sided air duct. The first four characters represent Ghibli’s ID code, and the following six digits represent the date when Mr. Fujiwara and Centro Stile Maserati touched the base (November 5, 2019). The last three letters are an acronym for Fragment.
Inside, Ghiblis mixes high-quality leather and Alcantara upholstery, with contrasting silver inserts for vertical stitching, trident embroidery on the headrest, and Ghibli and Fragment on the seat. At the same time, the seat belt is dark blue.
The launch of the Ghibli Fragment version will add a capsule series, with a limited number. The series will be available through Maserati official channels.
Now, Mr. Fujiwara is the pioneer of Tokyo street culture in the 1980s. He is also one of the first DJs to introduce hip-hop music into the country. As a producer and musician, he has worked with many international artists. Like you see?
