The NFTs minted for the (b).STROY x Givenchy collaboration were created by FELT Zine, the experimental Web3 artist collective, in partnership with Matthew M. Williams, Brick Owens and Dieter “Du” Grams.
"FELT Zine collaborators are directly influenced by talents like Matthew M. Williams who allow us to create freely and see our aesthetics and interests reflected at the highest level of art and fashion. With Givenchy, we are actualizing our inspiration in real time while making a Web3 contribution to the House's heritage," said FELT Zine founder Mark Sabb, an artist, curator, and creative technologist.
"Brick and Du are longtime friends who share my vision of fashion as an inclusive space for experimentation and expressing personal style. Together, the three of us focused on creating streetwear with unexpected treatments that resonates beyond fashion and enters the realm of contemporary art on the street and in Web3," said Givenchy Creative Director Matthew M. Williams.
