This new NFT collection is called NXTG3NZ with the aim of connecting both the real and digital worlds and is intended for the Z generation that does not separate the two spaces.
The brand seeks to appeal to the next generation of fashion, as, the 3 in G3NZ symbolizes the focus on Web3 technology, while the Z represents Gen-Z, the 10-25 year old social group that has already embraced digital culture such as accessories to metaverse, NFTs and cryptocurrencies.
