Dolce&Gabbana and UNXD launch the DGFamily NFT
Dolce&Gabbana, unveils the launch of DGFamily, an exclusive NFT (Non-Fungible Token) community in collaboration with UNXD, a curated marketplace for luxury and digital culture.
In a series of tweets, the famous Italian fashion brand also describes the presence of 3 beautiful boxes available for the DGFamily drop, which bring increasing rarities and benefits for the owners. There are 3 variants and they are the Black, Gold and Platinum boxes.
All it takes is to be a member of the DGFamily to purchase exclusive D&G NFTs and become a holder of benefits in both the physical universe and the metaverse. This will include access to exclusive drops and collaborations, both digital wearables and physical products, as well as access to an exclusive series of digital and physical Dolce&Gabbana events.
In this regard, Dolce&Gabbana stated:
“For Dolce&Gabbana, fashion has always been a merging of worlds that are very distant from each other, and new technology has inspired the vision of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana from the very beginning. The new DGFamily NFT community represents the digital equivalent of one of the cornerstones of the brand’s DNA: the idea of family, a community of people who find themselves united by shared passion and values. Dolce&Gabbana is thrilled to be able to extend this idea at the basis of its history beyond the boundaries of physical reality: when technology is at the service of people and their dreams, it becomes an even more powerful tool”.

Dolce&Gabbana and UNXD are thrilled to really lean into the NFT community and create something truly special.”
The second milestone of the Italian fashion brand’s NFT journey
Dolce&Gabbana’s decision to launch the DGFamily community follows a bit of what happened in August 2021 with the launch of its first NFT collection, the “Genesis Collection”.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the two co-founders of D&G, personally designed the objects represented by the NFT inspired by Venice, wanting to link their creative work from the physical to the metaphysical world.
The collection then saw record sales, reaching an impressive $5.65 million for the nine NFTs, which will also be usable in the metaverse to show off D&G’s designer clothes online.
