What happens when vintage clothing mixes with Web3? The famous designer Sean Wotherspoon gives us his answer with his vintage digital wearables collection, created for his new brand, MNTGE.
Vintage Clothing in Web3
Founded by Sean Wotherspoon, Nick Adler, and Brennan Russo, MNTGE will unveil its first collection on March 22nd. The launch will consist in a custom token-gated experience where users can unlock their trunks – already available on the secondary market. They will then reveal one of four digital vintage garments – 70s Denim Jean, Denim Jacket, Granny Sweater, and The Beach Tee. Additionally, one of three specially designed “inks” (the Living Plant Ink, Shroom Ink, and the Sunflower Ink).
Each MNTGE + Sean Wotherspoon collection holder will be able to either store their digital wearable and ink as is, or, press the garment and the ink together to create an enhanced garment. The new digital wearable will fuse the construction and detail of the original with a nature-inspired animation. It will also increase its rarity – which will be dictated entirely by the community of holders, depending on how many press the two together.
One day before the launch, on March 21st, a documentary series will be released. Called “Let’s Form Group”, it features a behind-the-scenes look at MNTGE co-founders as they work to create the brand.
