Gucci is now venturing deeper into the Metaverse, and it’s at the moment teamed up with Bored Ape Yacht Club creator Yuga Labs.

The luxury fashion house recently tweeted an image on Monday of a bottle that’s emblazoned with Gucci and Yuga Labs branding. The image in question also was seen in the trailer of Otherside, which is the upcoming Bored Ape-themed metaverse game designed for PC and mobile browsers by Yuga.

Gucci’s Tweet in Regard to This Development

“Continuing to explore the metaverse, the House comes together with YugaLabs,” reads, the tweet. “Stay tuned as a new narrative takes shape, blurring the boundaries between the physical and digital.”

The details on the specifics of the partnership still remain scarce at this moment, but a report from Business of Fashion states that the multifaceted deal is “meant to extend engagement between each company’s communities ‘by exploring the intersection between fashion and entertainment in the metaverse.'”

Yuga Labs Is the Biggest NFT Firm in the World

Yuga Labs as you should know is the biggest NFT firm in the world. NFTs, or nonfungible tokens, for those who don’t know are blockchain tokens that certify ownership of a digital good. Their proposed purpose simply is to grant digital goods the same property rights as physical items do. An NFT lets you sell an in-game costume, for example, just as you would be able to sell a real-life costume once you are done with it.
