Top 5 Fashion & Luxury Brands NFTs Collections We’ve Seen So Far

Here’s a look at the top 5 NFT collections released by the most prominent luxury brands.

1. BVLGARI Singularity NFT

2. Dolce & Gabbana — Alta Moda Collezione Genesi NFTs on UNXF

3. Guerlain’s Cryptobees NFT

4. Gucci x Wagmi-San Collab: 10KFTK Vault Grail PFP Outfits

5. RTFKT releases Nike Co-Branded “MNLTH” NFT

The Italian luxury brand Bulgari launched an NFT collection inspired by its new Octo Finissimo Ultra watch, said to be the world’s thinnest mechanical timepiece. The watch carries a QR code engraved on the barrel’s ratchet-wheel, serving as a gateway to more content like interviews, making-of segments and virtual tour of the movement. Each of the ten owners receive an NFT to authenticate their purchase. The Octo Finissimo Ultra NFT released by the 137-year-old company is mirrored by the BVLGARI Singularity NFT.

The Collezione Genesi made waves, as a one-of-a-kind 9-piece collection designed by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for UNXD, a popular NFT Marketplace on the Polygon blockchain network. The collections are available in physical and digital form.

What has been dubbed the “Reaverse” project, Guerlain, the LVMH-owned beauty brand, now aims to link NFTs to biodiversity via its 1828 “Cryptobees” rewilding project located in the Vallée de la Millière nature reserve in France. The Reaverse is a blend of “real” and “metaverse” consisting of four levels of “rarity”, meant to bring nature back to life in the real world, blending biodiversity and the metaverse. Guerlain’s skincare range Abeille Royale features bee products.

Gucci is diving into the Metaverse in style, dropping the 10KTF Gucci Grail personalized virtual garment collection. Teaming Wagmi-san with Alessandro Michele, ad hoc outfits and accessories are now available in the digital shop 10KTF Gucci Grail. Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s creative director’s avatar, visits New Tokyo in the metaverse, creating two outfits inspired by the Gucci Love Parade and Gucci Aria collections.

MNLTH is an exclusive NFT collection that was airdropped to Clone X NFT holders. The RTFKT x Nike Dunk Genesis CryptoKicks are digital wearables revealed in May and “powered by DART X, or Dynamic Artefact Reveal Technology.” It was revealed that all MNLTH vaults contain a pair of CryptoKicks, a single Skin Vial, and a second MNLTH vault.

Why You Should Buy Your Patek Philippe Nautilus on nft.luxfi.io

The first step is knowing what to buy; then, knowing where to buy it.

The storied history of the Patek Philippe Nautilus (known in watch circles as the 5711), are well-known by horological die-hards and now, the luxury and celebrity communities have began favoring certain models of the 5711 at events like the Super Bowl and NBA playoffs.

Shopping for a Nautilus is as easy as browsing e-commerce stores like LuxFi where one can find a wide range of 5711s available for purchase.

And now, one of the most coveted watches in the world is the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-018 (with Tiffany dial), having re-established the Nautilus as something so rare that only celebrities are able to acquire it.

First worn publicly by Jay-Z, the Tiffany Blue 5711 is the final model of the Nautilus that will ever be released, after having been retired in 2021 after years of waitlisting turned the watch into a crowd favorite (albeit an utterly unattainable one).

 — @GQMagazine

Coming in 40mm, stainless steel, the 5711/1A-018 model is the much-coveted watch everyone is talking about. The reasons behind the retirement were detailed in the New York Times interview with Patek Philippe’s president Thierry Stern.

The announcement resulted in two final versions of the 5711, a green-dialed 5711 that premiered at Watches and Wonders; and culminated in a surprise collaboration between LVMH and Tiffany to release 170 blue-dialed, Tiffany-stamped Nautilus 5711/1A-018 timepieces that have now been worn by celebrities like Lebron James, Leonardo DiCaprio and others.

 — @HODINKEE

The Nautilus 5711/1A-018 has inspired the blue-dialed theme in similar luxury watches such as the turquoise-dial Oyster Perpetual Day Date 36, released in 2020 by Rolex and seen recently worn by Drake.

You can browse various versions of Nautilus luxury watches on LuxFi Marketplace.

Are You Ready To Buy Wearable NFTs?

PFPs, profile pictures based on blockchain, are the hottest things out there in 2022. Now, it’s time to dress them up.

With the momentum collectively swinging toward mass-adoption of blockchain assets globally, we must wonder: what place will PFPs have in the growing global web3 landscape and what will luxury fashion brands in particular have to say about PFPs and digital wearables?

A PFP NFT (non-fungible token) is essentially digital artwork used to represent a character or personality; it is shoulder-length, often hand-drawn and often reflecting various “human” traits. Usually created as a collection minted (i.e. spawned) upon a common theme, they come with different levels of rarity and complexity.

Celebrities, luxury, fashion and athletic brands, plus TV, tech and startups are all on-board, and with a preponderance of phygital products rapidly coming to market, PFPs are now firmly established as key markers of success for a growing collective of NFT collectors and crypto communities. Some of the most popular PFP communities are CryptoPunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club, both of which have garnered the attention of major celebrities.

Owning an NFT, usually as an ERC-721 token (the Ethereum-based NFT standard at the moment), means you are one of the select few who can claim membership in that community. Financialization of NFTs is now possible; one way is collective bidding, exemplified by PartyBid ; another is fractionalization; and finally, NFTs may be now used as collateral for loans.

Undoubtedly there is both cultural and symbolic value in participating in these collective, blockchain-based interactions. Holding a PFP lets people signal their status and also embrace a community while engaging in artistic expression (activities that otherwise would not be possible).

Identities merge with digital depictions of “real” people, and the intersection of personal adornment, image, community and personal preferences are now forming a new web3 arena where PFPs may be “dressed” using NFT wearables.

Nifty Tailer, a web3 project, lets owners create derivative NFTs wearing fresh “clothes” for their PFP. These “digital garments” are the latest trend in what is quickly becoming a very “phygital” movement, creating some powerful and highly-imaginative collaborations.

NFTs have now sauntered far beyond a speculative gamble or new investment tool; they are becoming a part of our socially-connected lives, representing a deep connection to the nascent web3 universe that is accessible to anyone with a smartphone.

So significant are PFPs that Visa bought an NFT for its historical collection of globally-significant financial instruments, with Visa also creating a mentorship program for NFT creators.

The brand Champion Athletic revealed digital apparel and accessories to NFT holders of the Non-Fungible People series, allowing holders to upgrade by burning their original NFT (and in the process freshly mint a new NFT) in exchange for a new Champion apparel; the same series and burning method has been embraced by luxury watchmaker Louis Moinet, allowing for holders to retain the standalone NFT watch if they wish.

 — @LouisMoinet

Puma recently partnered with CatBlox, and Gucci has continued the company’s dive into the metaverse with an upcoming 10ktf collaboration that involves illustrations, storytelling, PFPs, NFT accessories and a virtual (floating) world. This burning method, used to mint new PFPs, is not used by metaverse powerhouse Roblox, however it could be on the way, as currently the project’s use of digital clothing does not utilize NFTs — though Roblox does allow users to layer their clothing, much like real-life.

 — @CatBloxStudios

That same PFP image could also be used to transact, socialize, and shop.

It is still early but we now see a clear convergence of web3 communities with PFP-hype; while it now takes mere weeks for NFT projects to gain massive followings and impressive volume (e.g. goblintown), it is still not an easy-entry for many wishing to participate, with many hurdles for (worthy) whitelists and much uncertainty about which projects are truly worthwhile.

Contrasting these gambles in pre-minting are the certaintitudes that present themselves if and when major brands and retailers get involved in a movement; this is what is now occurring, with shopping and socializing transforming themselves into digital-first experiences, and customers using PFPs by default.

Marketplaces such as OpenSea, Gem.xyz and others are paving the way for innovative asset-backed platforms such as LuxFi to move the dial even farther forward, allowing consumers to browse, buy, sell and borrow against their real-world NFT and product twins, choosing from exclusive globally-recognized retailers and luxury designers verified by LuxFi.

The wearable NFT revolution is indeed upon us — buttressed and supported by PFPs — and with the door open to anyone willing to step in. Just be sure to bring your blockchain wallet if you plan to participate.

2022-06-08 14:01:35

Are Brands Ready to Dive Into the Metaverse?

Web3 is here to stay.

Mass adoption of crypto is beginning to take shape, and while not without hurdles, we are finally seeing adoption within increasing orders of magnitude. As it currently stands, a high level of technical aptitude is needed in order for an individual to utilize crypto in their daily lives. It is also true that many people will only embrace blockchain once others they know decide to participate.

As individuals begin to envelop themselves in new Web3 opportunities, we are (as of now) yet to fully see how brands will develop their metaverse-based products. Brands must now make difficult decisions as they consider what direction they will choose in embracing Web3, and their choices will surely affect a wide range of stakeholders.

What are the major signals and which key indicators will businesses and major global brands ultimately decide to follow, as they begin to embrace Web3?

It is June 2022 and Apple has just retired the iPod, a product of a bygone era that defined how we think about and use new technology; iPods changed our culture and completely redefined what personalized digital experiences could be. Just as Steve Jobs took “a thousand songs” and put them in our pocket, we will likewise soon see world-changing blockchain innovations come to fruition, with major brands leading the way (and quite possibly funding all of it, too).

When major brands make moves, the ripples are felt instantly, around the world. That means once brands decide to take on the metaverse and put resources towards its development, there will undoubtedly be massive repercussions emanating from such Web3 speculation.

The decisive moves brands will need to make about their involvement in the metaverse will start as simple yet imaginative speculation, with metaverse experimentation supported by large financial funding, well-defined company structures, and well-established protocols — these elements are, in their totality, the key to hyper-charging everything these brands choose to put their hands on.

Brands must ask themselves a multitude of questions before they can properly decide what direction they will take in Web3, including:

How does a blockchain function? What do smart contracts allow companies to do? Is bitcoin the future world reserve currency and store of value? Will Ethereum stay on top as the go-to layer 1 for building on top of? Will Web3 completely transform how we use the internet and how we communicate? Will it eventually change how we transact?

Will Web3 forever shift how we trade (sell) our own labor (i.e. how we work)? Will the metaverse change how we reward behavior? Will it change how we convey thanks and gratitude? Will it change how we vote and how we govern? Will it change how we think of risk and how we conceive of “gambling”? Will it change how we shop, how we sell and how we support ourselves?

In order to answer these questions, brands must place themselves in an existential Web3 universe — they must imagine how their brand will be perceived in a metaverse that is not controlled by any one party or platform; a new blockchain-based habitat whose rules are defined by consensus rather than (dollar-based) market mechanisms.

Brands must put themselves in the story, as they write their new Web3 novels for the masses — this is the new standard for achieving brand presence and for claiming intellectual property in the metaverse — that is, they must actually create something that has real value, in order to succeed; innovation wins here every time.

With an NFT, brands can offer their fans a “tangible” piece of their production and concurrently can give consumers a new line of products grounded in blockchain fundamentals.

Brands will surely embrace the metaverse in direct correlation with the benefits they perceive to their own cause — that cause being of course: to make money.

As global arbiters of power, brands are in prime position to experiment and test out novel ways to apply blockchain core fundamentals to their company and then see the effects of their efforts to bear fruit. Major brands bring with them massive budgets and financial apparatuses which are already finely tuned from innovating in web2 over the last 20 years.

With Web3, brands could quite likely lead the way in building the future metaverse.

Brands must constantly find new buyers; they must discover and secure a constant stream of new followers in order to grow in today’s global markets.

So, who will brands look to for guidance and advice? What models will brands follow when it comes to ideation and brainstorming? What does a healthy roadmap look like for a brand’s journey into Web3? Who is the Web3 consumer they are targeting and what personas will these future customers possess?

Further — how do these metaverse buyers compare in total lifetime value (TLV) vs. the normal consumer? Where exactly will the most robust and most active blockchain ecosystems develop and what property is worth securing, prior to that development?

Brands must reconceive of what “property” means to them, and make decisions about how to plan to protect their creative endeavors. This is already beginning to happen (look at ENS domains), and crypto asset management platforms are innovating every day, offering new ways to safeguard and protect ownership.

With these developments however, we are also encountering more subtle questions gravitating around things like intellectual property, inheritance, community and copyright.

The most exciting thing about major brands’ (forthcoming) embrace of the metaverse is that, because of the massive resources and well-oiled production engines these brands already possess, they are in a perfect position to design, produce, test, and refine a myriad of new methods for taking blockchain technology to new heights.

The power and resources behind a single brand — including their successful Web3 campaigns — will very likely stand to be the shift ultimately needed to finally drive mass adoption of blockchain tech.

So, what will brands decide to do and what will they ultimately say “yes” to within Web3? Most importantly, how will brands use Web3 to grow their businesses and change the course of crypto in the process?

If we wish to find out, we must first buy our ticket, as spectators and participants alike.

NFT Retail Spaces

Retail NFT spaces are becoming more popular. For example, you can now buy a ticket to Coachella and receive your entry pass as an NFT. Gary Vee (who is that?) just hosted VeeCon, bringing together many of the biggest names and projects in the global NFT space. The physical and digital are merging, via a massive amount of activity in retail spaces using NFTs.

So now you’re wondering: what are the top NFT retail projects in blockchain?

Scan the list below to find out how in-real-life activities — and the web as we know it — are being completely redefined using NFTs and blockchain-enabled retail spaces.

The most promising retail space NFT crypto projects are:

Designer Fred Segal has created a new NFT experience called Artcade in his Los Angeles store, and is teamed with Subnation gaming to sell digital fashion that also exists in real life. Segal’s LA storefront will display Metagolden’s latest line of fine jewels + crypto, and Segal’s in-house Streaming Studio offers live podcasts plus esports gameplay.

“Fashion, as we know, loves to have its cake and eat it, too, and there is starting to be a world in which retailers allow a customer to nab an outfit in person and score its digital twin. “What we’re looking forward to is that if you walk into Fred Segal and you buy a Fred Segal hoodie or a collaboration with one of our partners, you could possibly buy the NFT version of it and dress your avatar in it,” ~ Fred Segal owner Jeff Lotman.

Infinite is a company out of Brooklyn, NY creating blockchain collectibles in physical form.

A project started by YouTuber Alex Becker and his crypto friends. It’s quickly become one of the most exclusive and fastest-growing avatar NFT projects around. The project has many facets and continues to release new features to participate.

Becker’s game follows a storyline of the famous Akira and Mange Series in post-apocalyptic Japan, however this time, your character has new powers and abilities, and those happen to be worth something in this game.

You can find the Neo Tokyo Identities NFT Collection on OpenSea.

Harvey Nichols has launched a new retail concept space for blue-chip NFTs, inside their Hong Kong store.

They have created the HN NFT Vault, existing as a semi-permanent retail space, in which customers can use crypto as payment. Harvey Nichols has also dropped a Clone X avatar release with RTFKT.

A web3 experience for the real world, the project lets you eat with your best friends, either in the metaverse, or face-to-face, thanks to these “culinary” smart contracts. The 90-day pop-up has now become a fixed establishment.

Investing in Bitcoin or a Hermès Bag?

When you buy a luxury fashion handbag — let’s take the Hermès Birkin as an example — you are buying more than a bag. You’re buying the firstly the name. You are buying the brand and the signature look associated with that model. You are buying a piece of the brand, a physical manifestation of societal value and utilitarian aesthetics. Your bag is an asset tied to the world of fashion and high culture, representing the standard by which other bags are judged. You now own an authentic product which can be resold in secondary markets, and because of the blockchain, your asset can viably be used in the metaverse.

The Hermès Birkin is a cornerstone of luxury production, a globally-recognized image which carries value across borders. It is a key piece in a cultural puzzle which has yet to be fully defined — that is, the bag itself contains a verifiable market value, however the social significance is something that is more difficult to model accurately. It is the real and perceived social value which truly makes a Birkin a worthwhile investment, as there is no single entity controlling its eventual price. It is this new connection to rapidly-evolving global blockchain ecosystems which makes a luxury handbag even more worthy of consideration for investment, as the digitalization of luxury goods is in increasing and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) now support the authentication of ownership and continued (accurate) valuation for limited edition products like the Birkin.

 — @sunchartist

Luxury brands are beginning to accept cryptocurrencies en mass, and decentralized finance (DeFi) is opening doors for buyers to collateralize their assets in various ways; known as asset-backed NFTs, these digital twins are giving buyers an advantage which cannot be replicated, as their prized possessions are backed up by the immutable blockchain ledger, and therefore can be verified (and resold) instantly with no intermediary.

So the question now becomes: should I buy a Birkin bag, or should I buy Bitcoin instead? The two are obviously not mutually exclusive, however they are similar in many ways, and our goal — to understand the differences between the two assets — is worthwhile, as it allows us to have better information in deciding what kind of asset-class we wish to handle, how much exposure we wish to have, and where the market is going.

There is much to be understood about Bitcoin, particularly as an asset that can now be easily bought and sold and which has continued to rise in value (every 2 years). It is by-far the most-talked-about and debated asset in the world today, one which many call the “most advanced store of value in the history of our species”.

 — @saylor

Indeed, Bitcoin harnesses blockchain technology and has shown (the world) just how powerful blockchain networks can be in enabling us to transact freely. Bitcoin portends the truly free markets which authors have postulated about and expounded upon for millennia; it presents grand opportunities for trade and novel ways to engage in exchange. It is (at once) a store of value and a bartering piece, arguably a superior means of exchange compared with anything else.

You can now buy practically anything with Bitcoin, and soon Bitcoin could become the world’s reserve currency, as traditional fiat is subject to inflation and government interventions beyond one’s control.

 — @cryptoMoJoe

The ability to borrow against one’s Bitcoin is now easier than ever, and as a technological invention, Bitcoin stands to be the marker by which all other assets will be judged going forward.

As to the question then of whether one should choose to buy Bitcoin or choose to buy a Birkin bag — well, that is a personal choice that deserves careful thought and research, considering the manifold ways which one can use either asset in today’s web3.0 landscape. Both assets have the (proven) capacity to rise in value, and both assets represent much more than a name or title.

Together, both Bitcoin and Birkin represent a new type of asset-class which is now being traded in newly-designed marketplaces, merging the physical and digital, and harnessing energy in newfound ways, allowing individuals to decide — at any given moment — what a worthwhile investment looks like to them.

These assets have created a new form of freedom, in the sense that the freedom to choose is grounded in the knowledge that these items do in fact “belong” to them, and what belongs to you is assuredly your property, digitally and physically.

It is now time to choose; Bitcoin or Birkin?

Gucci to Begin Accepting Crypto as Payment In-Store

It’s an exciting day when a major luxury brand announces that it will begin accepting cryptocurrencies at its flagship stores. That is precisely what has the fashion world talking this week, as Gucci has taken a major step forward as they embark upon a new journey for their customers and store staff.

Gucci will begin with 5 stores in the United States; its Wooster Street store in New York; its Rodeo Drive store in Los Angeles; its Design District location in Miami; its Phipps Plaza location in Atlanta; and at the Shops at Crystals in Las Vegas. The pilot will extend later in the summer to all North American locations.

The stores will accept 10 major cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Wrapped Bitcoin, Litecoin, Shiba Inu, Dogecoin, and five major stablecoins pegged to the US dollar.

To prepare staff, Gucci parent company Kering has created an in-house game with the help of creative agency Al Dente, in order to educate employees on web3, as a response to customers who are NFT collectors expecting special perks, rewards, airdrops and more from Gucci.

Gucci has been an early adopter of web3 technology, as evidenced most recently in their exclusive NFT collaborations. Gucci’s Discord server, Gucci Vault, just announced that two of its major NFT projects — SuperGucci and Gucci Grail — will be entitled to special pre-order rights for upcoming Gucci collections.

 — @10KTFshop

Gucci joins a list of other luxury brands building a strong presence in the metaverse and web3; in March of this year, Off-White publicized their intention to accept payment for purchases in crypto in their London, Paris and Milan stores; similarly, Phillip Plein has already begun accepting crypto payment and has an NFT gallery connected to corresponding digital wearables in the metaverse space known as Decentraland. Gucci is also developing land in Decentraland, and was the first luxury brand to release an NFT collection.

 — @gucci

The move by Gucci, and more recently by Phillip Plein and Off-White, represents a major milestone in the adoption of blockchain-derived technological advances, and such decisions only work to strengthen and enhance the work of companies such as LuxFi in our efforts to bring equitable payment systems to the luxury goods market. Payments on LuxFi NFT Marketplace can be made entirely in crypto. Learn more www.nft.luxfi.io.

Physical Asset NFT Marketplaces — At the intersection of global trade & commerce.

Physical, asset backed NFT are a crucial development within the crypto-sphere which is now spawning new marketplaces for every type of trade and investment opportunity imaginable.

As the use-cases increase for NFTs, the need to trade in physical assets remains consistent, as physical assets are still required to live. Property is being redefined with the rapid increase in crypto-adoption as we are at a crossroads as high-value items are being created and circulated in fraudulent manners, leading to a mergence of NFT technology with such goods.

These physical items have historically been listed on marketplaces that require a login or signup to initiate any trading; this is also true of NFT marketplaces contained physical items, and today we are seeing an emergence of platforms catering to this dual-purpose trading sphere — allowing both the physical item and the matching NFT twin to be bought and sold in tandem. This is revolutionary, as not only do these NFTs have an authenticate, physical, real-world placemarker (the actual item itself) but the NFT also allows its owner(s) to benefit from their ownership in novel ways.

The idea of ownership is a crucial idea to understand, as it is changing now with the property rights to digital products being interconnected with the social, cultural and governmental values present in each sphere of relevance. Examples include LuxFi NFT Marketplace, with asset-backed NFTs minted on decentralized blockchains such as Ethereum, allowing owners to hold their goods in secure custody and to use their NFT investments as collateral.

The “original owner” of an NFT is an important idea here too, because these items are minted once and forever, emblazoning themselves into existence with no copycatting possible, a fact that has far-reaching implications for many industries.

Owning an NFT means you are part of the club, a verified member of a project, as membership is established and carried on by owning certain NFTs in your wallet. This means the marketplace for certain categories of NFTs are becoming extremely popular (art, gaming, designs, etc), thus creating an effect that is tribal and community-focused, giving power to creators and owners alike, and allowing new mechanisms of support and patronage to grow organically within the boundaries of a user-friendly digital marketplace.

We are only at the beginning of what will surely become a new marker in global trade, as physical and digital property rights evolve and people research, compare and trade these goods in new ways and on new platforms built for those audiences. Further development of NFT usages will surely see physical products intertwined with the digitalization of shopping and retail experiences, and as global certifications and licensing begin to progress in adopting blockchain technologies (smart contracts), there will be a plethora of user-friendly platforms that offer open market trading in whatever goods or services one desires.

Learning how these new technologies work is crucial, and activities like testing new marketplaces, shifting funds to new wallets, seeking out better rewards, and finding communities you identify with — these will be the actions necessary to participate.

With a good amount of focus and concerted effort, anyone can learn and engage in this web3 revolution and obtain the physical and digital goods they want and need.

Discover new ways to trade, a variable e-commerce experience containing physical and digital goods traded instantly, securely, and with no barriers.

What has been dubbed the “Reaverse” project, Guerlain, the LVMH-owned beauty brand, now aims to link NFTs to biodiversity via its 1828 “Cryptobees” rewilding project located in the Vallée de la Millière nature reserve in France. The Reaverse is a blend of “real” and “metaverse” consisting of four levels of “rarity”, meant to bring nature back to life in the real world, blending biodiversity and the metaverse.

Why You Should Buy Your Patek Philippe Nautilus on nft.luxfi.io

The first step is knowing what to buy; then, knowing where to buy it.

The storied history of the Patek Philippe Nautilus (known in watch circles as the 5711), are well-known by horological die-hards and now, the luxury and celebrity communities have began favoring certain models of the 5711 at events like the Super Bowl and NBA playoffs.

Shopping for a Nautilus is as easy as browsing e-commerce stores like LuxFi where one can find a wide range of 5711s available for purchase.

And now, one of the most coveted watches in the world is the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-018 (with Tiffany dial), having re-established the Nautilus as something so rare that only celebrities are able to acquire it.

First worn publicly by Jay-Z, the Tiffany Blue 5711 is the final model of the Nautilus that will ever be released, after having been retired in 2021 after years of waitlisting turned the watch into a crowd favorite (albeit an utterly unattainable one).

 — @GQMagazine

Coming in 40mm, stainless steel, the 5711/1A-018 model is the much-coveted watch everyone is talking about. The reasons behind the retirement were detailed in the New York Times interview with Patek Philippe’s president Thierry Stern.

The announcement resulted in two final versions of the 5711, a green-dialed 5711 that premiered at Watches and Wonders; and culminated in a surprise collaboration between LVMH and Tiffany to release 170 blue-dialed, Tiffany-stamped Nautilus 5711/1A-018 timepieces that have now been worn by celebrities like Lebron James, Leonardo DiCaprio and others.

 — @HODINKEE

The Nautilus 5711/1A-018 has inspired the blue-dialed theme in similar luxury watches such as the turquoise-dial Oyster Perpetual Day Date 36, released in 2020 by Rolex and seen recently worn by Drake.

You can browse various versions of Nautilus luxury watches on LuxFi Marketplace.

Are You Ready To Buy Wearable NFTs?

PFPs, profile pictures based on blockchain, are the hottest things out there in 2022. Now, it’s time to dress them up.

With the momentum collectively swinging toward mass-adoption of blockchain assets globally, we must wonder: what place will PFPs have in the growing global web3 landscape and what will luxury fashion brands in particular have to say about PFPs and digital wearables?

A PFP NFT (non-fungible token) is essentially digital artwork used to represent a character or personality; it is shoulder-length, often hand-drawn and often reflecting various “human” traits. Usually created as a collection minted (i.e. spawned) upon a common theme, they come with different levels of rarity and complexity.

Celebrities, luxury, fashion and athletic brands, plus TV, tech and startups are all on-board, and with a preponderance of phygital products rapidly coming to market, PFPs are now firmly established as key markers of success for a growing collective of NFT collectors and crypto communities. Some of the most popular PFP communities are CryptoPunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club, both of which have garnered the attention of major celebrities.

Owning an NFT, usually as an ERC-721 token (the Ethereum-based NFT standard at the moment), means you are one of the select few who can claim membership in that community. Financialization of NFTs is now possible; one way is collective bidding, exemplified by PartyBid ; another is fractionalization; and finally, NFTs may be now used as collateral for loans.

Undoubtedly there is both cultural and symbolic value in participating in these collective, blockchain-based interactions. Holding a PFP lets people signal their status and also embrace a community while engaging in artistic expression (activities that otherwise would not be possible).

Identities merge with digital depictions of “real” people, and the intersection of personal adornment, image, community and personal preferences are now forming a new web3 arena where PFPs may be “dressed” using NFT wearables.

Nifty Tailer, a web3 project, lets owners create derivative NFTs wearing fresh “clothes” for their PFP. These “digital garments” are the latest trend in what is quickly becoming a very “phygital” movement, creating some powerful and highly-imaginative collaborations.

NFTs have now sauntered far beyond a speculative gamble or new investment tool; they are becoming a part of our socially-connected lives, representing a deep connection to the nascent web3 universe that is accessible to anyone with a smartphone.

So significant are PFPs that Visa bought an NFT for its historical collection of globally-significant financial instruments, with Visa also creating a mentorship program for NFT creators.

The brand Champion Athletic revealed digital apparel and accessories to NFT holders of the Non-Fungible People series, allowing holders to upgrade by burning their original NFT (and in the process freshly mint a new NFT) in exchange for a new Champion apparel; the same series and burning method has been embraced by luxury watchmaker Louis Moinet, allowing for holders to retain the standalone NFT watch if they wish.

 — @LouisMoinet

Puma recently partnered with CatBlox, and Gucci has continued the company’s dive into the metaverse with an upcoming 10ktf collaboration that involves illustrations, storytelling, PFPs, NFT accessories and a virtual (floating) world. This burning method, used to mint new PFPs, is not used by metaverse powerhouse Roblox, however it could be on the way, as currently the project’s use of digital clothing does not utilize NFTs — though Roblox does allow users to layer their clothing, much like real-life.

 — @CatBloxStudios

That same PFP image could also be used to transact, socialize, and shop.

It is still early but we now see a clear convergence of web3 communities with PFP-hype; while it now takes mere weeks for NFT projects to gain massive followings and impressive volume (e.g. goblintown), it is still not an easy-entry for many wishing to participate, with many hurdles for (worthy) whitelists and much uncertainty about which projects are truly worthwhile.

Contrasting these gambles in pre-minting are the certaintitudes that present themselves if and when major brands and retailers get involved in a movement; this is what is now occurring, with shopping and socializing transforming themselves into digital-first experiences, and customers using PFPs by default.

Marketplaces such as OpenSea, Gem.xyz and others are paving the way for innovative asset-backed platforms such as LuxFi to move the dial even farther forward, allowing consumers to browse, buy, sell and borrow against their real-world NFT and product twins, choosing from exclusive globally-recognized retailers and luxury designers verified by LuxFi.

The wearable NFT revolution is indeed upon us — buttressed and supported by PFPs — and with the door open to anyone willing to step in. Just be sure to bring your blockchain wallet if you plan to participate.

We eliminate counterfeiting while minting an NFT on a multi-chain blockchain network, with a focus on luxury assets that hold value well and have a high resale value. Leveraging our big data intelligence system and unique algorithm for automated data collecting and data processing, the value of each NFT on our platform is backed by real-world data.
