Mick Jagger and David Grohl, leaders of the Rolling Stones and Foo Fighters, announced the sale of an NFT with an unprecedented song that the two recorded together, called “Eazy Sleazy”, which accompanies a digital art created by the artist Oliver Latta, known as “Extraweg”.
Now it is the turn of digital parts to have their sales leveraged with the NFT. Every day more fashionable, after the launch of major brands such as Gucci, with his 50 reais digital sneakers, and pieces for the Pokémon GO avatars, it is time for the ‘crypto artists’ to benefit from the sales of digital clothing with the NFT.
After several sales of digital arts, a virtual sweatshirt was sold to an anonymous buyer for £ 19,000 on the digital art marketplace blockparty.co.
The piece, from the streetwear brand Overpriced, has no characteristics that make it different from a physical coat: black, with a printed QR code and the neon green “fuck your money” graphite.
The brand describes itself as creators of “fashion for the cryptographic generation”. In fact, using digital parts, and paying high prices for it, is still a favorite of this generation. Overpriced also has the mission of bringing debates about the pricing of art, inspired by the motto that “the value is in the eyes of the beholder”.
Co-founder Leighton James told the Hypebeast: “We are a group of artists who seek to create fashion-inspired art cryptography that aims to challenge the conceptions of what is luxury fashion”.
For James, non-fungible tokens are a means of authenticating the pieces. “NFTs provide a unique way for artists to designate what is real and what is authentic. Our customers are buying unique wearable art that no one else in the world has. ”
If the sweatshirt is stolen, lost on the internet, damaged or sold, the part codes will be invalidated and a new jacket will be sent to the owner, bringing authenticity to the part.
