Customer Sues Dolce & Gabbana Over NFT Delays

An aggrieved customer has filed a class action lawsuit against Italian fashion brand Dolce & Gabbana and digital assets platform UNXD, alleging delivery delays of non-fungible token (NFT) products that resulted in a 97% loss of value.

According to Bloomberg, Luke Brown spent $6,000 for Dolce & Gabbana’s “DGFamily NFTs,” which combine digital and physical assets with unique privileges and experiences within the brand’s ecosystem.

Moreover, the NFTs were delivered over a week late, causing their value to plummet by $5,800. Additionally, a set of “outfits” for the NFTs, intended for display in the metaverse, faced further delays. These delays extended to 11 days after the initial delivery.

Lawsuit Allegations

Brown’s class action suit, representing all affected customers, alleges that Dolce & Gabbana and UNXD failed to meet their promises at the point of sale. The delays were reportedly due to Dolce & Gabbana’s failure to obtain approval for the accompanying assets from the UNXD NFT platform. The total number of affected customers is currently unknown.

Implications for Hybrid Markets

This case highlights the challenges faced by brands transitioning from physical to hybrid digital markets. Physical products, like fashionable clothing, operate in markets distinct from digital assets, often with minimal correlation.

The Dolce & Gabbana NFTs were created on the Ethereum blockchain, which supports the world’s second most popular cryptocurrency. Furthermore, as Cointelegraph noted, Dolce & Gabbana NFTs have previously sold for millions of dollars. These factors may impact the lawsuit’s outcome.

To sum up this legal battle could set important precedents for managing and delivering digital assets. It could impact the handling of their physical counterparts in the evolving NFT market.
