BOSON and Tommy in the Metaverse
Founded in 1985, Tommy Hilfiger is one of the world’s leading clothing and accessories brands. After 37 years of success in fashion shows, the company launched its first digital-focused exhibition.
The brand will use Metaverse to virtually showcase its Spring 2022 collections, in addition to hosting a store-style digital retail platform. Here, consumers will have the opportunity to purchase NFTs for their avatars or purchase physical items from within the Metaverse.
With this, the fashion giant joins Samsung and Heineken as companies that have already created digital versions of their stores or products on the blockchain. This virtual shopping experience will be carried out in collaboration with the Boson Protocol, which explains the strong appreciation of its BOSON token.
This protocol works as a payment settlement layer for e-commerces. BOSON also enables the exchange of digital assets for physical products, services and experiences. In fact, the protocol will have an entire avenue dedicated to the trade of products for major brands.
This area is called Boson Portal – Fashion District and occupies an entire street of Decentraland’s space. The area is inspired by the famous Avenue Montaigne in Paris, where the world’s biggest brands are gathered. Some examples of stores present on site are:
- Louis Vuitton;
- Dior and Dior baby;
- Salvatore Ferragamo;
