Virtual clothing has become an art like existence here , The blessing of the concept of the meta universe also pushes it to the wind . Reporters noted that , Every virtual garment sold has a design concept 、 Create a story 、 Inspiration source and exclusive name, etc . In the business publicity , Most will mention the metauniverse , And said that people can really own something in the virtual world , Become its sole owner . More Than This , Each virtual garment is basically set with the selling time and quantity , Most will not exceed 100 pieces .

The purchase method of virtual clothing is relatively simple , There are basically no restrictions on buyers ,“ There is no need to consider the figure 、 Size ”, Virtual clothing can realize an exclusive fashion blockbuster . In general , The Seller issues a fixed-time limited sale notice on the platform , After the buyer has photographed the virtual clothes he wants , Just select a photo matching the clothing requirements and send it to the seller or upload it to the platform , You can wait “ Wear ” On the virtual clothing .

at present , Most businesses stipulate that each suit of clothes can only be worn on one photo . Shell finance reporter saw , The official launch of the little red book “ Virtual fashion buyer's shop ”, New products will be announced every Friday , The lowest price of the latest phase III virtual clothing is 19 element , The highest price reaches 1280 element .

Shell financial reporter tried to buy a virtual jewelry designed by students of Beijing Institute of fashion , limited 30 Pieces of , It will be sold out after only ten minutes . After purchase , The product appears on the account of the reporter xiaohongshu R-Space Space , But to wear, you need to send your real photos to the designated mailbox . In actual experience , Seller's commitment 7 Give feedback within working days , The reporter 2 Days later, I received a photo of wearing this virtual jewelry .

“ There's a computer , Can use software , You can basically enter the industry .” Virtual clothing brand METACHI founder 、 Chinese Pioneer designer Zhang Chi told shell finance reporter , Now most virtual fashion designers are students of fashion schools , Even game company employees who have no idea about clothes , A designer who has transformed traditional fashion design like himself , Maybe only 1%.

The shell finance reporter combed the introduction of the virtual fashion designer on the platform and saw , Many students who have just graduated or have not graduated from major fashion design colleges .

LIV I am a graduate student of Guangzhou Academy of fine arts , Research “ The application of non wearable materials in fashion design ” Direction , The outbreak affected her to go out for inspiration . until 2021 year , Virtual clothing concept fire ,LIV Found a new direction ,“ Virtual clothing full of sense of technology and visual impact , Instantly washed away my aesthetic fatigue ,DNA Surging —— I realized , This is definitely mine Spiritual Oasis( Oasis of inspiration )!” She told the shell finance reporter .

LIV The first set of clothing from the idea to the realization of commercial realization , It took nearly half a year .“ Now xiaohongshu has opened a trading platform , New entrants can quickly cash in .” She said , The early investment risk in the field of virtual clothing is small , One computer can do it , Most of the expenses are time and marketing costs .

In the secondary market , There is no shortage of virtual clothing without price . Shell financial reporter found , Many players cut prices all the way after consigning virtual clothes , There are also cases where the sending price is lower than the buying price .

The rise of virtual clothing hype , And become a currency symbol on the digital collection platform , Compared with the aesthetic significance of clothes , Buyers began to pay more attention to the future appreciation potential and the degree of popularity .

Every investor expects to be a pioneer , Can press potential stocks . What is the measure of price ?

Get together “ Rush to eat ”,

Virtual clothing or “ Utopia ”?

Virtual clothing appearance time , Before the metauniverse .2018 year Amber Jae Slooten Created the first virtual clothing brand .

“ Clothes have two functions , Practical and expressive , But what if we separate the two ? I see a future , There we will re plan the space , You can express yourself , But it will not harm the earth .”Amber Jae Slooten Once explained the value of virtual clothing .

The market is hot , Traditional fashion clothing brands 、 Big Internet companies have entered the Bureau , Independent virtual clothing brands emerge in endlessly .

2019 year 5 month , First digital garment “Iridescence Rainbow Dress ” Born on the Ethereum blockchain , The transaction price is 9500 dollar . thereafter , With the concept of the meta universe out of the circle , Virtual clothing has become a new trend .

6 month 17 Japan ,Facebook(Facebook) Founder Zuckerberg said , is Facebook、Instagram and Messenger And so on , Users can buy virtual clothes for their avatars . The brands introduced at the beginning include Balenciaga 、 Prada and Tom · Brown et al .

Virtual clothing once existed in the concept , In the concept of meta universe, there is a space for ground extension . Combined with the NFT Market growth and epidemic impact , Many fashion brands are increasing their size , In addition to the early virtual fitting ,3D Display, etc , Also held a virtual clothing show 、 Cross-border cooperation 、 Design special clothes for virtual people, etc .

Shell financial reporter noticed , Balenciaga passed a VR The game was released 2021 Fall collection . Nike acquires virtual sneaker design company RTFKT, And with Roblox Cooperation launched “ Nike paradise ”Nikeland Virtual experience . Gucci (Gucci) Created a time limited Gucci Garden Exhibition virtual space .

“ When I first said to make virtual clothes , People around me think I'm crazy .” Zhang Chi thinks , Even now , The recognition of virtual clothing in the fashion circle is still not high , The entry of a fashion brand is more like an early taste ,“ No matter whether it can develop in the later stage , But we have to get in , This is the concept of fashion itself ”.

Besides traditional fashion brands , More independent platforms and brands focusing on virtual fashion appear . From a global perspective , There has been a Mo、DressX、Tribute Brand、RTFKT Brands such as , Through and fashion brands 、 Designers and technology companies , Explore more possibilities of virtual clothing .

DressX It is a pure digital fashion international e-commerce store , Its founder once said in an interview that , To create a digital wardrobe in the meta universe . While giving full play to the value of the virtual clothing itself, it also has NFT Platform cooperation , Created DressX NFT The store . Reporter's observation , At present NFT The clothes in the store are not interchangeable with those in the original mall , That is to say, not every piece is DressX All the products purchased in the mall have NFT attribute .

however , Virtual clothing takes a step , The voice of doubt has never stopped ——QQ Show , You can't touch them, and they all become groove points . Besides , Virtual clothing is compared to P chart ,“ Could have robbed money directly , He also sent you a picture .”“199 Buy a picture ?”“ I didn't think I would buy skin for myself ”, Many netizens regard it as a new way to cut leeks .

LIV Tell shell financial reporter , The wearing diagram of virtual clothing is not as simple as it looks , After the merchant receives a photo , First of all, we need to simulate the alignment in the computer according to the action of the characters 、 Environment rendering and post detailing , To achieve a realistic wearing effect . However, the photo synthesis of some virtual works is not good enough , At a glance, it looks very “ false ”, This leads people to think that virtual clothing is P Stickers on .

The shell finance reporter browsed the works of various platforms and found , Due to the different technical levels of merchants' rendering , The quality of virtual clothing is also uneven , Including part of the virtual clothing can not fully fit the characters 、 Hair goes through clothes 、 Blurry edges, etc .

stay LIV It seems , Although the threshold of virtual clothing is low , But want to do well , It still takes a lot of time to polish the details of the version 、 Adjust the proportion 、 Pay attention to the tailoring process , Make it look like a real dress , Instead of just stacking the rough products of technological elements ,“ The essence of virtual clothing is aesthetic output .”

Zhang Chi agrees with this ,“ No understanding of beauty , It's not good . in addition , Imagination and knowledge and understanding of the times are important .”

Xia Yuedong reminded me in an interview with shell finance reporter , Now the biggest problem of virtual clothing is concept hype , The bubble is very big , It is easy to cause huge losses to individuals , It is not too much to think of it as a gamble .“ A large number of low-quality works are also filled with them , These works have no value at all .”

“ Environmental protection 、 Efficient 、 freedom to create ”, These concepts have been mentioned repeatedly in the virtual clothing publicity . Xia Yuedong said , People need to understand that the value of virtual creation lies in the quality of the work itself , It is not the concept that determines its value . The foam will burst one day , This scene is similar to the hype about air currency in those days 、 MLM money .“ Customized design works for personality , This may be the greatest value and significance of virtual clothing .

Zhang Chi thinks , Virtual clothing is still in its infancy , It is too early to talk about problems and chaos .“ Now the future of the whole virtual clothing is unknown , No one has ever succeeded in virtual clothing , So you don't know how big the market is , But it is this unknown that inspires people .” He has many expectations for the future of virtual clothing , The first thing to do now is to believe , You can't stop doing it after twoorthree years .

In the blueprint drawn by the brand , The future virtual clothing can appear in the motion graph 、 Video platform 、vlog Bloggers and video calls 、 Games, anywhere . Besides , The threshold for ordinary people to wear luxury brands is lowered 、 Private custom clothes appear 、 Clothing waste is reduced .DressX Virtual clothing has been upgraded from static to dynamic , For example, the ribbon dancing with the wind 、 Flowing patterns, etc , But it still stays at a relatively early stage .

“ Whether the emerging digital collection platforms in China comply with the regulations , There is no explicit provision in the current law , However, if the sale of digital products is based on the attributes of its virtual currency , On suspicion of breaking the law . Besides , It also depends on whether the platform has obtained relevant qualifications , Whether the nature of the digital collection trading platform makes the digital collection financial 、 The tendency of securitization .” Zhaohu, a partner of Beijing Zhongwen law firm, told the reporter of shell finance .
