Weekday launches digital drop Artifact 001 with The Fabricant
Weekday has previously explored AI, avatars, AR-filters and virtual experiences. Now together with pioneering digital fashion house The Fabricant they venture into digital collectibles. The limited-edition drop Artifact 001 consists of 300 pieces in the shape of two digital collectibles; a one-of-a-kind pair of sunglasses in black and white.
The design inspiration comes from stalactites and stalagmites; the mineral formations that take thousands of years to take shape. It’s an exciting clash to bring something extremely old and organic into a digital layer we’ve only just started to scratch. I mean who knows, a digital collectible might outlast your average stalactite…

Artifact 001 goes live June 13 at 5pm CET at thefabricant.com.
To become the youth destination of the future we have to be progressive but also entertaining. We want to collaborate with forward thinkers and find innovative ways to engage with our community. In a Weekday way of course. I believe this is a great example of that, amazing sunnies!
