Two of the platform’s virtual ‘celebrities’ will be present in the Gucci Vault online concept store, a space recently developed by the luxury brand that allows for seamless collaboration and further brand exploration.

The partnership follows a number of virtual activations by the Italian label, which has released NFTs in the past including its Aria NFT. Its new chapter with Superplastic marks a further probing of the metaverse, hinting at more possibilities on the horizon.

Sales for the collection will begin on February 1 through Superplastic’s website.

In addition to the collaborative drop, Gucci will also be releasing its sixth edition of second-hand vintage pieces through Vault, each handpicked by Alessandro Michele and the house’s archivists.
