NFT drop of original designs by Cristóbal Balenciaga on July 21st

New York, July 19, 2022 — Lorenzo Riva, artistic director of Balenciaga in the early 80s, announces the NFT collection “Cristóbal Balenciaga: To the Moon”. The NFTs were inspired by Riva’s collection of 8,300 original, never-before-seen designs by Cristóbal Balenciaga.

Cristóbal Balenciaga became famous for his powerful, unique designs and quickly established himself as the “master” of haute couture. From humble beginnings as an apprentice to a local tailor, Cristóbal later became known in the fashion world as a pioneer of innovative shapes in his clothing. In the 1950s, among other things, the sack dress and the cocoon coat were introduced, which are now very popular among women. The name Balenciaga is now considered the epitome of fashion and is associated with revolution and modernism. Many of his concepts still have a great influence on the fashion world today.

Fortunately, Cristóbal passed on his original designs to Lorenzo Riva, Balenciaga’s artistic director in the 80s. Riva and well-known Web3 companies such as Art Consulting, the curators of Riva’s Balenciaga collection; Art Vein, an NFT platform for visual arts; Animal Concerts, a Metaverse entertainment company; Cointelegraph, the leading crypto-digital media organization, which designed and created the artworks; and NFT, a leading NFT marketplace, have teamed up to bring this stylish digital NFT collection to life. These receive the same attention to art that Cristóbal’s original forms once had in vogue.

Romano Ravasi, art consultancy partner and curator of the Collezione Lorenzo Riva, said: “With ‘Balenciaga to the Moon’ haute couture enters the metaverse. The project enters with the extraordinary elegance of the 50s. Contemporary art is the place of pollution and we are delighted to encourage this dialogue between past and future. The past must be preserved and the future nurtured with treasures from our glorious past.”

Fashion continues to evolve on Web3 and participants are invited to get a piece of history. This NFT project will have mystery boxes for public random coining from July 21, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. EST. The NFTs are revealed immediately.

Haute Couture meets Web3

There will be 10,000 unique pieces in total, and collectors can uncover NFTs of varying rarity when minted. So there is a surprise when revealing each NFT.

Of course, a project of this caliber also needs equally exciting rewards. That’s why the project partners have ramped up the rewards, offering select buyers the chance to receive Balenciaga clothing, gift cards for high-end designer brands, and even Cristóbal’s 70-year-old drawings. In addition, some NFT owners will receive roster spots for upcoming Animal Concerts NFT Drops and access to special gifts such as Live and Metaverse concert tickets and more.

In addition, the project group also highlights 50 exclusive Balenciaga “Haute Couture” examples, which are extremely rare and therefore the most valuable among them.

Interested participants can also receive haute redeemable with the NFTs, an unmatched value and a community that sets new standards. The price is set at $100 for each coin on NFT.

To attract participants to the Web3 world working with digital collectibles, the team entices first-time buyers with many benefits. These include a roster spot for future Balenciaga NFT drops with Lorenzo Riva, as well as roster spots for planned NFT drops for animal concerts and special gifts. In addition, the Animal Concerts team has put together a host of incentives, rewards, redeemable and useful post-drop benefits to ensure owners of the Cristóbal Balenciaga: To the Moon NFTs enjoy the longevity of a healthy, community-focused project.
