Shiba Inu’s apparel collaborator John Richmond teased his new SHIB-themed collection via his official Twitter handle. The post came with a blue-haired caricature donning a jacket with the meme token inscribed over it.
Richmond, an accomplished fashion designer from Italy has been a long-time SHIB supporter. The two formed a collaboration in February 2022, and he began displaying attires with Shiba Inu themes at various design shows, including Milan Fashion Week, which took place in September 2022.
Apart from boosting Shiba Inu’s popularity, Richmond also directed his energy on enticing members of the SHIB community.
The fashion designer asked the SHIBArmy to offer fresh suggestions for improving the SHIB X John Richmond clothing line last year.
During these interactions, the English-Italian designer also created many versions of SHIB-themed T-Shirts, while incorporating some of the recommendations.
In his long career, Richmond has worked with many celebrities, including critically acclaimed artists like Madonna, the Rolling Stones, and Gwen Stefani.
The Manchester-born designer only recently began focusing on Web3. The new strategy is a result of the ideals decentralization delivers to the global community, he claimed.
Another factor that drew him closer to Web3 innovation was that it reminded him of the iconic 80s punk rock trend. According to Richmond’s tweet, he found a lot of similarities between the two movement
“Just like the punk rock movement of the UK in the 80s, it represents a powerful energy and a desire for change,” explains the renowned stylist.
Shiba Inu Army Was Ecstatic Due To This
Even though John Richmond has previously worked with a star-studded cast, he just made a magazine cover with Snoop Dogg for Vogue Magazine public. The well-known Hip Hop artist infused the world of fashion with a touch of the West Coast.
The SHIB Army was ecstatic when Snoop Dogg was featured in Vogue Magazine because his rebellious street attire perfectly complemented John Richmond’s plan to experiment with various styles.
In response, a few SHIB Army troops tweeted Shytoshi Kusama, the game’s lead creator, asking whether Snoop Dogg could perform in Ryoshi Plaza or Bark Park.
In the end, Shiba Inu’s developer team’s planned Web3 project is called SHIB: The Metaverse. However, Shibarium’s Layer-2 scaling solution must first be made available before SHIB: The Metaverse may go online.
