Luxury fashion giant Gucci has just announced its partnership with Yuga Labs to explore the intersection of fashion and entertainment in the metaverse. This exciting collaboration is just the beginning of a multi-year strategic partnership that will see Gucci taking an active role in Yuga Labs‘ Otherside metaverse offering.
Gucci’s venture into the NFT world began with its branded outfits for Yuga Labs’ 10KTF project. The luxury fashion brand is now set to become a major player in Otherside, Yuga Labs’ gamified, meta-RPG universe. The first activation of this partnership is set to happen this week and will give us a glimpse of what Gucci’s participation in Otherside will look like.
Robert Triefus, the chief executive of Gucci Vault & Metaverse Ventures, stated that this partnership will give Gucci an active role in Otherside and 10KTF’s continuing narrative. Gucci’s participation in the metaverse is no longer just an experiment, but a pioneering move into the Web3 and NFT industry.
Gucci’s Vision for the Metaverse

Gucci Vault’s Gucci Grail NFTs, minted on the Ethereum blockchain, offers a unique and personalized experience envisioned by Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele, and crafted by none other than Wagmi-San.
