She has already taken the next move as a pioneering virtual K-POP artist by collaborating with CHARLES & KEITH to create a space where fashion, music, and technology can come together. The brand is expanding its presence in the metaverse by opening the doors to its virtual world, CHARLESKEITHHAUS, on virtual real estate platform The Sandbox from 13 to 27 March 2023. Modelled after its Spring Summer 2023 campaign, CHARLESKEITHHAUS offers an immersive and entertaining way to experience the brand’s universe. Every detail in the house is curated to reflect the spirit of the new collection. All of these elements come together to encourage experimentation and foster a community of fashion lovers.
Inviting exploration, guests can look forward to in-game quests like quizzes and locating a secret room to redeem a digital wearable of this season’s must-have item, the Petra Curved Shoulder bag. The rooftop will also feature a runway where visitors can see the new collection in “real” time. Special guest APOKI is throwing a rooftop party and will be playing some of her hit singles. Besides her performance, look out for APOKI’s coin hunt, where she will be guiding guests along as they embark on her quest.
