How MSGM designers used Pixel features
To develop the line’s unique patterns, we provided MSGM's designers with Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro devices. The featured images on the clothes were shot around the Milan underground area using Long Exposure Mode and edited using Magic Editor.
Long Exposure Mode uses Pixel's AI camera technology to creatively add blur to capture the energy of the scene in front of you — simulating a traditional long exposure that blurs the motion of moving objects. Achieving this effect on traditional cameras typically requires a tripod, but our engineers found ways to make this more accessible to everyone and stabilize Motion Mode shots.
The images taken with Long Exposure Mode were then edited on the phone with Magic Editor. With Magic Editor, you can make complex edits without pro-level skills. Using a combination of AI techniques, including generative AI, the feature helps you make edits to specific parts of an image — in this case, objects in an underground metro station — so you have even more control over the final look and feel of your photo.
The Pixel devices became an essential partner for MSGM, offering a suite of AI-powered tools that allowed the designers to fully express their creativity. “Celebrating the intersection of fashion and technology is like a journey through digital time, a collection that reflects on the speed of our era,” says MSGM founder Massimo Giorgetti. “MSGM and Google Pixel converge to create not just clothes, but an expression of contemplation on the digital and the lost time we wish to redeem. Each piece is a fragment of digital memory, a nod to the past and a leap into the future. The collaboration extends beyond fabrics and stitches."
