🚨 When Dolce & Gabbana shimmied into the metaverse, little did it know it was walking right into a digital disaster! 🌐💥 The Italian luxury fashion house recently launched a collection of NFTs on Ethereum, promising buyers a tantalizing blend of “digital, physical, and experiential benefits.” But what followed was a sartorial saga worthy of a runway show. 💃🕺

The Bungled Delivery: A Fashion Faux Pas

Imagine spending $6,000 on NFTs that come with virtual outfits, only to find out they’re about as useful as a sequined swimsuit in a snowstorm. ❄️👙 That’s precisely what happened to Luke Brown, a disgruntled customer who filed a lawsuit against Dolce & Gabbana USA. ⚖️

According to Brown, the NFTs arrived a whopping 20 days late, and when they finally did, they were stranded in a metaverse platform with “barely any users.” 🕰️📉

But the fashion fiasco didn’t end there. Token holders were left twiddling their virtual thumbs for another 11 days before they could even use their digital duds. Apparently, Dolce & Gabbana forgot to secure approval from the metaverse platform beforehand. Oops! 😬 It’s as if they sent out invitations to a gala but forgot to book the venue, resulting in 97% losses for the fashion giant. 📉💸
