Louis Vuitton gets into luxury digital collectibles
Louis Vuitton’s iconic and storied trunk is launching into the metaverse. In this new voyage, so to speak, the French fashion house is carving out a space on Web 3.0 to house digital collectibles within the VIA Treasure Trunk. It’s basically a luxurious NFT. Through ownership (which comes at a cost of €39,000), you will have special access to new products and experiences that will be revealed through immersive launches at regular intervals throughout the year. What’s more, each of these very exclusive Louis Vuitton goodies — quantities will be limited to just a few hundred — are unique and, like a tangible trunk, come with a key to secure it.
