Anyone can stop by the virtual concept store today and learn more about Gucci's heritage through immersive gameplay.
Gucci has brought luxury fashion into The Sandbox metaverse
Renowned Italian fashion house Gucci has made a deeper foray into the metaverse by launching its own virtual space - Gucci Vault Land - in The Sandbox realm.
To begin with, Gucci Vault is an experimental online space envisioned by the firm's creative director Alessandro Michele. It hosts a careful curation of rare vintage Gucci pieces alongside exclusive NFT artworks, limited-edition styles, and other items from selected brands.
From October 27th to November 9th, users with The Sandbox account can hop into this experimental virtual concept store and experience the Vault at 360° through a compelling storyline. Guests who complete in-game quests will also stand a chance to win SAND tokens.
It's worth mentioning that the virtual experience is open to everyone. By immersing themselves in the colorful world of Gucci and picking up tasks such as restoring a vintage Gucci bag in the Vault Vintage Lab, visitors can earn Gucci Vault Boxes as raffle entries to win SAND and digital collectibles. Notably, there are 500,000 SAND up for grabs, to be split evenly among 10,000 lucky winners.
How to access Gucci Vault in The Sandbox
Those who are looking to hop into the virtual Vault must first create an account on The Sandbox website and install the Alpha launcher on their PC. Once done, log in to the website and search for Gucci Vault under the "Events" tab below.
Clicking the "Join Now" button will take you to a separate page containing further instructions to complete in-game quests. However, only KYC'ed users can receive their prizes after the event.
Along with the virtual experience, Gucci has launched a series of Voxel-based NFT assets, now available on The Sandbox marketplace. Here's a quick look at the magical world of Gucci Vault:
