1. Description of the Collection
Cryptocouture is a collaboration between cryptoartists. It is inspired by the old-school haute couture ateliers of Paris, in particular Christian Dior, but with a surreal, space-age metaverse twist. Oculardelusion initiates the fashions in VR, sculpting them in Tilt Brush. She then sends the files to y0b who translates them into the wearables concepts. Ilan Katin does the fine tuning in 3D to ensure their optimization and compatibility. Each dress concept becomes a collectible not only as DCL wearables but also in a series of tokenized media including video, still images and VR scenery files so that the owner can experience the dress in several layers of experience.
2. Design Concepts
Each of our sets of wearables will consist at least of a dress (upper and lower body). Each dress will also come with matching hat or headpiece, neck jewelry, brooch, shoes, and so on, depending on the design. The wearables can be mixed and matched with other sets. We encourage playful self-adornment.
