Balenciaga or Prada: What Will You Be Wearing on Meta?

Balenciaga or Prada: What Will You Be Wearing on Meta?

These digital garments were modelled by Chen’s and Zuckerberg’s Meta 3D avatars: Chen looked svelte in a Prada tank top and skirt from the Italian luxury brand’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection, previously modelled by Euphoria’s Hunter Schafer, while the Facebook founder ventured beyond his hoodies and nondescript shirts to flaunt a Balenciaga motorcycle suit and Thom Browne tailoring.

“Digital goods will be an important way to express yourself in the metaverse and a big driver of the creative economy,” said Chen on Instagram, before sharing that more fashion brands will be added to Meta.

Being cheaper (and therefore more accessible) than the real thing is part of the appeal of Meta’s fashion offerings, but so is the ability to “wear” them across various Meta platforms, including Facebook, Instagram and Messenger. Whether anyone actually does will be seen in the weeks to come, as the Meta Avatars Store launches in the US, Canada, Thailand and Mexico.
