According to the press release, the specialty luxury collection will focus on the deep-rooted artistic traditions of Venice`
The first concept of the collection is inspired by a dream of designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana called “L’abito dei Sogni” or “Dress from a dream”. More NFTs from the Collezione Genesi collection will be unveiled in the weeks leading up to the famous Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria, and Alta Goilleria show. All will be exclusively auctioned on UNXD.
