To mark Pride Month this year, Givenchy Parfums has showed its support for the LGBTQIA+ cause by launching an unprecedented project: creating an NFT.

The brand teamed up with London gallery owner and LGBTQIA+ activist Amar Singh, and artists Rewind Collective to create a digital artwork which have been sold for the benefit of the Le MAG Jeunes organisation.

It is an initiative which perfectly reflects the House’s approach: where disruptive creativity and innovation always go hand in hand with the values of respect and inclusion.

After venturing into the field of gaming by creating makeup looks for the video game Animal Crossing, Givenchy Parfums, accompanied by the creative music studio Like Fire and the Exhibition magazine collective, is now exploring the new world of NFTs.

It has officially become the first beauty brand to create an NFT, and use the innovation to spotlight an important cause.

Drawing inspiration from the House’s hallmarks, as well as the colours of Pride Month, this original virtual artwork was unveiled on the @givenchybeauty Instagram page.

The 1,952 copies were sold out in 2 seconds flaton VeVe, the largest mobile-first digital collectibles platform.

Founded in 2018, VeVe was created by collectors and for collectors to bring premium licensed NFT digital collectibles to the general public. With over 300,000 active users and 500,000 NFTs sold, it is the largest mobile-first digital collectibles platform.

In March 2021, VeVe committed to 100% per cent carbon neutral NFTs and provided $7+ million in grants to environmental nonprofits to raise money for causes through NFT promotions.

At the end of the sale, which took place from 21 to 26 June, the association Le MAG Jeunes received the 128,000 dollars raised.

This initiative is fully in line with Givenchy Parfums’ approach, which aims to promote a culture open to all types of diversity. The singularity and expertise of its employees are a precious source of creativity and innovation.

Givenchy Parfums ensures that all are included so that they are totally free to be themselves and can fully express their potential. Each talent is unique and the strength of the House relies on merging these differences.

Based in London, Amar Singh is known as much for his contemporary art gallery as for his activism in favour of the rights of women and LGBTQIA+ people. Involved in the decriminalisation of homosexuality in India, his country of origin, he makes the most of his profession as a gallery owner to assert his convictions: the Amar Gallery, founded in 2017, puts the spotlight on creators from the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as women artists.

In 2019, Amar Singh was ranked in the Forbes list of the ’30 under 30s’ for his contribution to art and culture.

For all these reasons Givenchy Parfums decided to commission Amar Singh and Rewind Collective for its Pride Month project. Rewind Collective creates digital works which question gender stereotypes and the place of minorities in art history.

Titled “Pride”, the artwork created by Rewind Collective for Givenchy Parfums is a series of animated portraits symbolising diversity, the assertion of identity and the fight for equal rights. Innovative photos, which the collective reinterpreted digitally in the colours of the Rainbow Flag, thus expressing Givenchy Parfums’ commitment to a more diverse, more inclusive, in short, more universal kind of beauty.

Alas, 10's Gladiators has gone as quickly as it came. Should make for a very wild garage sale, however.
