Milan, December 28, 2022 – Prada announces the eighth installment of its Timecapsule NFT collection. The January 5 installment follows a successful 2022 campaign in which Prada has joined the Web3 community and opened its reach to new audiences, enabling unique experiences for NFT holders.
The latest installment of NFT is the 37th installment of the Timecapsule collection. To kick off the new year, the first three months will feature a series of T-shirts with special prints by Italian photographer Enzo Ragazzini from his archive of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Entitled INTERFERENZA OTTICA ART PRINT BY ENZO RAGAZZINI 1969, the January T-shirt will feature a design made in 1969 for Enzo Ragazzini’s exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London (ICA) with the optical interference technique, using mechanical devices of his invention (the “rotating plane” for circular patterns and the “rotating drum” for horizontal patterns). This work was subsequently digitized in 2017.
The front pocket of the poplin shirt bears Prada’s enameled triangle logo and a transfer on the back with the word “JANUARY”. Each shirt is accompanied by its own gifted NFT, which serves as an invitation to join Prada’s exclusive Crypted NFT community.
