Gucci’s Metaverse Expansion
Gucci’s NFT Collections
Gucci has been one of the most active fashion brands in the web3 space. In 2022, the company collaborated with Superplastic, a creator of animated celebrities and vinyl toymakers, to drop several NFT collections, including the final SUPERGUCCI NFT collection, Guccighost, which dropped in September 2022.
The company has also collaborated with leading artists, such as Miley Cyrus, to launch a Roblox-based digital wearable collection called Gucci Flora.
Gucci’s Metaverse Strategy
In September 2022, Gucci expanded its metaverse strategy with Gucci Vault Land, a new metaverse hub on The Sandbox. Furthermore, the company launched Gucci Town Hub on the same platform to create an immersive shopping experience for its customers.

Gucci’s latest partnership with Yuga Labs focuses on extending the engagement between their respective communities by exploring the intersection between fashion and entertainment in the metaverse.
While specifics of the collaboration are unknown, a representative from Yuga Labs has verified that it will be a long-term arrangement spanning multiple years. The first phase of this partnership is set to commence this week.
Gucci’s Future in the Metaverse

Robert Triefus, the CEO of Gucci Vault and metaverse ventures, said that the tie-up with Yuga Labs gives the Florence, Italy-based luxury fashion house an active role in Otherside and 10KTF’s continuing narrative.
Earlier, the corporation collaborated with 10KTF to introduce the Gucci Grail NFT assortment, comprising bespoke NFTs conceptualized by Alessandro Michele and produced by digital craftsman Wagmi-san.
