JW Anderson and xydrobe Create an NFT of Harry Styles' Colorful Knit Cardigan
The British pop star’s wardrobe enters the metaverse.
The former One Direction member wore the kid-core knit last February during a live performance on The Today Show. Clever TikTok user Liv Huffman, known online as @lilbittylivie, crocheted her own version, not only sparking a viral trend but an overwhelming demand for the cardigan.
Available for auction, the playful jumper is a digital masterpiece. Taking over 300 hours to create, VFX artists built each individual piece of yarn in 3D before weaving them together to perfectly replicate the intricate patterns, recreating the man-made imperfections present in the physical garment.
The xydrobe auction for the platform’s first Archive Collectible is open now online until Tuesday December 14 at 2:00 p.m. EST (19:00 p.m. UTC).
