EMBRACE YOUR EMOTIONS (EYE) NFT COLLECTION DROPS IN NOVEMBER
The HUGO BOSS NFT collection will launch in November. These are 1001 3D animated NFTs. HUGO is launching this collection in partnership with Imaginary Ones. Along with the NFT collection, a 360-degree metaverse experience is also a part of the launch. However, will the metaverse experience includes augmented reality is yet to be seen, but the speculation is skewing towards this trend.
The EYE NFT collection has a motive. HUGO BOSS wants to encourage everyone to embrace and connect with their emotions. Moreover, the NFT collection will have a message that all emotions, negative or positive, are valid. These are the expressions of an individual’s freedom. Hence, the expression of emotions plays a vital role in a person’s mental health and well-being.
The 1001 HUGO BOSS NFTs have different characters, and six characters will possess special attributes. However, five characters represent the everyday emotions a person feels. These are joy, fear, sadness, anger, and love. Consequently, HUGO BOSS is also forwarding a cause in support of Mental Health Day. However, the sixth character has a special mix of all the emotions.
Plus, these six characters will be auctioned, and the proceeds will go towards Youth Aware of Mental Health (YAM).
“The metaverse is an exciting new space for fashion brands. One that is rich with potential for HUGO. We are excited to partner with Imaginary Ones to deliver an NFT collection of beautiful 3D assets that enables us not only to further explore this virtual world.”– Miah Sullivan, Senior VP of HUGO BOSS
