Ever since Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg renamed his company Meta, there has been increased interest and curiosity in the digital realm of non-fungible tokens or NFTs.

Collectibles of digital art, realistic avatars, their high-end accessories, clothing and even skin, NFT is one of the largest markets virtually with a business potential of billions. In fact, the NFT world has also seen the emergence of its first billionaires – the co-founders of the NFT platform OpenSea recently.

Moreover, it is no longer a domain reserved for tech wizards and gamers. Luxury fashion brands have partnered with NFT developers or launched their own NFT collections in the Metaverse.

From jackets, hats, limited edition bags and jewelry, these signature items are available to you, but only virtually.

Here are some luxury fashion brands that are succeeding in the metaverse

Gucci

The Italian fashion house’s NFT experience was launched in May 2021 when Gucci unveiled its first NFT-related product. Interestingly, it wasn’t really about fashion for its centenary celebrations. It is a four minute film, Aria, co-created by Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele and director Floria Sigismondi to accompany a fashion show by the former.

As part of the “Proof of Sovereignty” sale organized by Lady PheOnix, a digital artist, the film was sold for 25,000 USD by the art auction house Christie’s. All proceeds from the sale would go to UNICEF USA for COVID-19 vaccination initiatives.
This isn’t the first time Gucci has entered the metaverse. It had unveiled one of its first digital fashion product lines, and it wasn’t even considered an NFT.

The virtual version of the Gucci Dionysus bag was sold for 4,115 USD on the Roblox gaming platform, using 350,000 Robux currencies.

That’s not all. Robux currency is not a real cryptocurrency, which makes it invalid outside of the Roblox world. Likewise, since it is not an NFT, the virtual bag has no value outside of the Roblox world. Interestingly, however, this virtual bag was priced higher than the real-world product, starting at $3,400.

Louis Vuitton

A rather unique crossroads of fashion and games, French fashion house Louis Vuitton (LV) celebrated the 200th birthday of its founder by launching a mobile game called LOUIS THE GAME on August 4, 2021.

This is no ordinary mobile game. Integrated with 30 NFTs, the game tells the story of the mascot of the fashion house Vivienne. The wooden doll, bearing the flower monogram of the LV brand, accomplishes several quests along its journey through the long history of Louis Vuitton.

Made in collaboration with artist NFT Beeple, the collage art was worth an estimated $69.3 million. However, used NFTs are only part of the game’s collection and are not open for public sale.

This isn’t the first LV game to be produced. The fashion house debuted in the gaming arena in 2019, with the launch of endless runner. Featuring 16-bit retro style gameplay, the game was inspired by Virgil Abloh’s FW19 Runway collection.

Nike x RTFKT

Sneaker lovers can try on new pieces in the Nike lineup, but they can’t be worn in real life. Entering the virtual world of NFT, the sneaker giant acquired digital sneaker brand RTKFT on December 14, 2021.

Founded in 2020, RTKFT was co-founded by Benoit Pagotto, Chris Le and Steven Vasilev and is dedicated to blurring the lines between sports, gaming and activewear. In early 2021, RTFKT teamed up with popular crypto artist “Fewocious” and sold around 600 pairs of shoes, grossing a whopping $3.1 million in less than seven minutes.

RTKFT launched a virtual “trial” session of the sneakers on Snapchat, after which bidders could participate in the digital auction. The winners received the physical shoes, but the real coveted asset remains the digital ones.

Ever since RTKFT studios shared the news of joining the Nike Inc. family, its excitement has grown exponentially. Many of their virtual shoes have strong likenesses and are inspired by Nike signatures like Air Jordan 1 and Air Force 1.

“This acquisition is another step that accelerates Nike’s digital transformation and enables us to serve athletes and creators at the intersection of sport, creativity, play and culture,” said President and CEO. Nike executive John Donahoe in a statement. “We are acquiring a team of very talented designers with an authentic and connected brand. Our plan is to invest in the RTFKT brand, serve and grow their innovative and creative community, and expand Nike’s digital footprint and capabilities,” the statement read.

The first fashion brand to partner with online gaming fortnite, Balenciaga has offered to sell four signature items from its collection to serve as skins and accessories for in-game avatars.

The luxury fashion brand’s creative director, Demna Gvasalia, always has something new to offer and this time, blurring the lines between physical and digital, Balenciaga’s model has been transformed into a digital avatar called “Doggo”, who wears Balenciaga outfits in the fortnite arena.

Additionally, three more fortnite avatars get a makeover with Balenciaga – Banshee is seen in a tiger stripe bodysuit; Ramirez wears a sequined top paired with a pair of ragged jeans; while Knight receives Balenciaga armor boots with a hoodie and shorts.

But what if you lose the hoodie or someone steals that coveted asset? Do not worry. Reports suggest that Overpriced.™ will give the buyer a new code and the old code will become invalid for sale.

Ten of these tech hoodies were sold for USD 26,000 on the NFT Block Party marketplace platform in its first auction on April 13, 2021 and the remaining 25 were offered to industry influencers. music and fashion.

Launched by James Zwadlo of Impossible Brief and Chris Levett (the creative team behind the Patrick Mahomes NFT), along with Leighton James (of electronic music production duo Adventure Club), Overpriced.™ aims to bridge the gap between technology and the clothes.

Monday’s “ruling confirms what we’ve been saying from the start – that Amazon’s intimidation and interference has kept workers from having a say in whether they want a union in their workplace – and as the regional director said, this is both unacceptable and illegal, ”RWDSU President Stuart Appelbaum said in a statement.

Unsurprisingly, Amazon doesn’t see it that way. In an email, Amazon spokesperson Kelly Nantel said the NLRB’s decision was a disappointment.

“Our employees have always had the choice of whether or not to join a union, and they overwhelmingly chose not to join RWDSU earlier this year,” Nantel said. “It is disappointing that the NLRB has now decided that these votes should not count. As a company, we don’t think unions are the best answer for our employees. Every day we empower people to find ways to improve their jobs, and when they do what we want to make those changes – quickly. “

The company statement rejects the value of work organization in general, saying Amazon’s goals of empowerment and job improvement are harder to achieve. “with unions in the middle. “

“The benefits of direct relationships between managers and employees cannot be overstated – these relationships allow the voice of every employee to be heard, not just the voice of the privileged few,” said Nantel. “While we’ve made great strides in important areas like Compensation and Safety, we know there is a lot we can continue to do better, both in our distribution centers and in our offices. , and that’s our goal – to work directly with our employees to continue to improve every day. “

It is possible that RWDSU the effort had an effect despite its loss in Alabama, as Amazon announced wage increases for 500,000 workers soon after. In any case, there will be a new election, with the date and method to be determined.

Microsoft sells ugly minesweeper-themed sweater

Ugly sweaters, it seems, are a profitable business. Tech giant Microsoft recently joined the list of companies entering the ugly sweaters market this holiday. The Ugly minesweeper-themed sweater, valued at $ 74.99, is sold out in all available sizes, from small to 3XL.

This isn’t Microsoft’s first rodeo in the ugly sweater game. Last year he published a ugly window themed sweater in which every product sold benefits the Girls Who Code non-profit organization.

What we still think about

1000

This is the number of stores under the Popshelf banner Dollar General plans to build by the end of fiscal year 2025. The concept launched last year as a means of reach middle-income commuters in an atmosphere of treasure hunting. Executives are already excited about the sales and margins generated by the stores.

Dollar General is set to add 50 Popshelf stores this year, and the company said it plans to nearly triple the total number of its Popshelf stores next year. All in all, the company sees 3,000 possible locations under the banner – but that’s only a fraction of the massive expansion (on top of an already massive footprint) Dollar General is planning in the years to come.

97.2%

How much is it Allbirds’ net loss widened in the third quarter compared to the previous year. While sneaker brand DTC was able to increase its net revenues by 33% and 40% compared to last year and 2019, respectively, making a profit remains a struggle, which many other brands online are grappling with. .

Allbirds, however, continues to build on its offline presence: in the third quarter, the brand opened four stores, bringing the total number of stores to 35.

What we watch

Toys R Us’s latest comeback

Toys R Us is making – another – a comeback in brick and mortar. This time it’s in the form of a new two-story flagship store in the American Dream Mall in New Jersey. The store is slated to open in mid-December and will feature experiential gadgets like a double-decker slide and ice cream parlor. This will be the first new store in the United States under WHP Global, which bought a majority stake in the toy brand reconstituted this year.

It will also be the only Toys R Us store in the United States for now, since two pop-up stores that the Toys R Us brand have opened in joint venture with b8ta closed earlier this year. In addition to the flagship, Toys R Us also teamed up with Macy’s for about 400 shop-in-shops inside the latter’s department stores. Will this Toys R Us comeback hold up?

Gucci is reissuing its legendary version of the Cadillac Seville. It will just be much smaller this time around.

The fashion house has partnered with Hot Wheels to help transform the luxury sedan into a 1:64 scale model as part of its 100th anniversary celebration. And unlike the original, which is practically impossible to find these days, you will be able to buy the miniature classic online from the end of the month.

Gucci first teamed up with Cadillac in 1979 to give the Seville, the automaker’s answer to German luxury cars of the day, an essential injection of Italian style. And that’s exactly what the house did, adding a number of eye-catching designs including a vinyl top with the interlocking ‘G’ patch, gold piping along the seats, a special badge, and an embellishment. Gucci hood in gold and matching wheel emblems.

This die-cast model, which is Hot Wheels’ first collaboration with a fashion brand, is based on the 1982 model of the sedan. This was the second-generation Seville, introduced in 1980, so it has the distinctive razor-back rear and is finished in glossy white. Although it was scaled down to 1:64 scale, you can see all of the Gucci details that made the car so special. It also comes with an authentic Gucci box and cover.

“This epic and unexpected collaboration between Gucci and Hot Wheels reinforces the fact that toys are a canvas that reflects pop culture, fashion and design,” said Richard Dickson, president of Hot Wheel’s parent company, Mattel, in a statement. “We are thrilled to celebrate and honor Gucci’s incredible 100th anniversary with an artistic rendition of a limited edition Hot Wheels, reinforcing the importance of toys as art. “

The Hot Wheels x Gucci Cadillac Seville goes on sale Oct. 18 on the Mattel Creations website and at a number of the fashion house’s stores, including in New York City, London, Milan, Seoul and Tokyo. The commemorative model will be limited to just 5,000 units and will cost $ 120. It might sound like a lot for a scale model, but trust us, it could be a lot more expensive.

Hollywood has a long history of bringing iconic cars to the screen, from Doc Brown’s DeLorean and the Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1 to the Transformers and the Weasley family’s flying Ford Anglia. And Jada Toys has recreated all of these iconic vehicles – and many more! – for his Hollywood Rides diecast collectibles series. Now, the company is offering even more to collectors with a new site called Next Level. Thanks to Next Level, fans can get their hands on exclusive, limited-edition vehicles, starting with the Batmobile pictured above. We chatted with Jada Toys CEO Bill Simons about the launch of Next Level, what fans can expect from the platform, and more!

The Pop Insider: What motivated Jada to launch Next Level? Also, how would you describe its purpose and what collectors will find there?

Bill Simons: The name Next Level describes it well in that we bring our collectibles to the Next Level. Collectors will find limited edition offerings in vehicles and pop culture figures. The idea originated at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic when Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC) was canceled, and we decided it was time to bring this execution in style in a direct collector to the consumer (DTC). format.

PI: Jada has a long history of offering collectible vehicles inspired by pop culture. What makes these Next Level vehicles different from other Jada offerings?

BS: The main difference will be that Next Level products will be premium, with more detail and premium packaging. There will be a unique tooling specific to Next Level, as well as a special decoration for the bestsellers of all time.

PI: Looking at the Batmobile and Batman from 1989 in particular, what sets this version of the Batmobile apart from others that Jada has offered?

BS: This is the third Black and chrome batmobile from the series. The first two being the 1966 and animated versions, both of which were in black chrome and were sold out at SDCC. This is an all-time best-seller example that has received a high-end decor and packaging treatment. This is the first product to launch on Next Level, and it was originally slated for SDCC 2020. However, when that was canceled, we wanted to find a way to offer our fans the option to add it to. their collection and continue the series. .

PI: What can fans expect in the future of Next Level? Are there any additional license partners you can share and will all Next Level products be scale vehicles with numbers?

BS: So far, we have launched four products on Next Level. In addition to the 1989 Batmobile, we had three 1:18 scale Fast & Furious vehicles with working headlights and taillights, as well as a figure of the character who drove those cars. These are completely exhausted. The next offering from Next Level is a 6 inch Frankenstein action figure from Universal Monsters that comes with an operating table. This is my favorite item so far to come out on Next Level, and the packaging is gorgeous. We are currently preparing the new Batmobile which will be featured in the 2022 film The batman. We will be expanding the Black Chrome series to include this model next year.

PI: Would you like to add anything else about Next Level or Jada Toys in general?

BS: We have some very exciting launches planned for the second half of next year. Jada joined the Simba-Dickie-Group in 2018, which gave us access to incredible product lines. We are currently working on three projects which will be a collaboration with our brand Hollywood Rides and the famous German die-casting company Schuco. It will be a whole new tooling and will bring a level of detail and precision to Hollywood Rides never seen before.
