Gucci and cryptocurrency studies

The Italian fashion house released a series of NFTs in February in partnership with toy brand Superplastic. Other important names have also embraced digital fashion. Dolce & Gabbana introduced their NFT collection last September. German fashion house Philipp Plein, especially known for its flashy outfits, adopted cryptocurrencies last August. Meanwhile, back in April, the controversial designer behind the brand, Philipp Plein, predicted that his company would make around $16 million from crypto enthusiasts this year.


Gucci’s story is one of luxury, fashion and style. In 1881, Guccio Gucci founded his company as a saddlery store in Florence, Italy. His son Aldo later made the Gucci name a global brand. In 2000, Gucci was acquired by the French conglomerate PPR (Kering), which owns brands such as Balenciaga, Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen. Gucci has since become one of the leading luxury fashion brands, with more than 60 stores worldwide.

Bitpay plays an important role in crypto adoption by global brands like Gucci. The US-based payment provider allows numerous companies to accept payments with BCH, ETH, WBTC, DOGE, SHIB and stablecoins. One of the most recent developments we reported as the world’s largest watch manufacturer Hublot was accepting cryptocurrencies in partnership with BitPay. Hublot now accepts cryptocurrencies for luxury watches.
