While the exact designs of the first release are still under wraps, Gucci hinted that the NFTs will feature the famous SuperJanky figure “within ten different whimsical scenarios inspired by Gucci Aria,” a fashion film by renowned directed by Floria Sigismondi showcasing Gucci’s F/W 2021 collection of the same name, designed in collaboration with Balenciaga.
The Gucci Aria film was released as an NFT last year, and was sold via Christie’s auction for a final bid price of $25,000. Gucci’s other ventures in the metaverse include a virtual Gucci Garden experience in May 2021 on online game platform Roblox, where users can buy and sell virtual items.

Remember: this Roblox purse is not an NFT and thus has no value/use/transferability outside the Roblox world-yet it’s worth more than the physical one.
