A few weeks ago, legendary fashion house, Prada, revealed it would close out 2022 with a holiday NFT time capsule that included a collectible and a sweater. Now, the eminent clothing firm will ring in the new year with another Time Capsule drop heading to the blockchain on January 5, 2023.
Here’s what we know:
The latest NFT drops #37 in the Timecapsule collection will present a series of shirts featuring prints by Italian photographer Enzo Ragazzini from his Sixties and Seventies archive.
Titled “Interferenza Ottica Art Print By Enzo Ragazzini 1969”, the January shirt will feature a design made in 1969 on the occasion of Enzo Ragazzini’s exhibit at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London with the optical interference technique, using mechanical devices of his own invention. This work was digitized in 2017.
The shirt’s front pocket features the Prada logo and a transfer on the back with the word “January.” Each shirt comes accompanied by its own gifted NFT, which serves as an invitation to join Prada’s exclusive Crypted NFT community.
Prada will sell 50 shirts featuring these designs, with accompanying NFTs, from January 5, 2023. These NFTs, like those from previous drops, offer exclusive perks for their holders, not just for sentiment’s sake.
In this case, those who hold the NFTs get access to Prada’s Menswear Fall/Winter 2023 fashion show in Milan. To buy these NFTs, users must join the Prada Crypted discord channel and become verified holders.
