Global entertainment brand, Superplastic, has announced the final instalment of its Gucci collaboration, so holders of its infamous SUPERGUCCI collection may find a welcome surprise lurking in their wallets.
Back in January, the venerable fashion house teamed up with the insatiable Web3 company. Together they launched a highly stylized NFT featuring Superplastic’s on-point digital character, Jankey, resplendent in Gucci’s trademark designs. Now, Jankey’s partner in crime has arrived on the scene in the shape of a tremendous airdrop.
Those holding one of the original NFTs at the time of the snapshot will see their wallets graced with the new collectible. Therefore, completing the anarchic duo as they prepare to inflict their own brand of mayhem on the blockchain. In addition, holders will also qualify to redeem a high quality handmade ceramic sculpture direct from the Bitossi factory in Italy.
Paul Budnitz, CEO of Superplastic, said that the brand has 10s of millions of followers, and to partner with Gucci, one of the most recognizable companies in the world, was an exciting collaboration for both companies.
The SUPERGUCCI collaboration marked Gucci’s first foray into Web3, one that has led to the company accepting cryptocurrencies at its physical locations and partnering with NFT marketplace SuperRare on a curated digital art collection. Superplastic, for its part, has not been quiet either, collaborating with Yuga Labs to create vinyl Bored Ape Yacht Club toys.
One interesting announcement that occurred with the final SUPERGUCCI NFT drop is that another Gucci NFT collection will debut in October. Guccighost, as the company is calling it, has few details, but given its spooky name and the timing of the collection, it may perfectly align with the coming Halloween season.
