The brand’s latest foray into the world of Web 3.0 is a digital exhibition of exclusive NFTs.

Get your Ethereum ready; Alessandro Michele has teamed up with pioneering digital marketplace SuperRare to create a virtual art gallery as part of Gucci’s experimental online space, Vault. First conceived in 2021, the immersive digital platform will debut its first digital art exhibition, The Next 100 Years of Gucci. Said to be a celebration of the Italian brand's past, present, and future, 29 prominent digital artists, including Ignasi Monreal, eBoy, and VEXX, were commissioned to create exclusive NFTs to be showcased and auctioned off. While Michele has built the brand with his distinct vintage-inspired aesthetic, he's never been shy to adopt emerging technologies like augmented and virtual reality. Last year he released The Gucci Virtual 25, a pair of digital trainers that could only be purchased on virtual reality social platforms like VRChat.
