New partnership between mintNFT and fashion house Balmain to design a new fashion campaign using NFTs and the metaverse.
Balmain’s new fashion campaign together with mintNFT
The co-founder of the mintNFT platform, James Sun, and the creative director of French luxury fashion house Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, have announced the launch of a new NFT campaign, curated entirely by Sun’s company and increasingly focused on Web3 and the metaverse.
Founded 75 years ago by Pierre Balmain, the fashion house has always stood out for its originality and non-conformism in its collections. These particularities have, where possible, become even more accentuated with the current creative director Rousteing, who is always very attentive to new technological innovations.
Specifically, the NFT platform, which as the name suggests helps companies issue and sell a token on the blockchain, has announced that it will launch a new Non-Fungible Token exclusive to the fashion house. Both James Sun and Rousteing shared the news during the opening of the Balmain shop in New York on 12 May.
Rousteing told reporters :
“I’ve never aimed to simply be cool. Instead, my goal has always been to ensure that this house’s designs are timeless. A designer needs to create collections that are tied together by a unifying thread. And it’s important to never break that thread—because the moment that happens… well, it means that you’ve failed. It means that you haven’t been able to extend a clear vision and advance a distinct aesthetic”.
