VALACLAVA Unveils First-Ever Premium Call of Duty® Collectibles Collab
Next-generation gaming premium apparel giant VALACLAVA ® announces its first fashion drop in partnership with Call of Duty ® , bringing four ultra-rare collectible garments to fans physically and digitally. The collection officially launches on October 14, 2022, with an early access list available now at collection.valaclava.com.
The partnership includes the release of sleek gamewear apparel, including t-shirts, trousers, jackets and hoodies, with just 300 units of each piece being produced. This is Call of Duty’s ® first high-end collectible partnership, commemorating Modern Warfare II, launching October 28, 2022. Garments will range from $200 to $800 USD.
VALACLAVA ® is a next-generation clothing company intersecting fashion and gaming and colliding the real world and metaverse through web3. Designed and developed in Portugal, these pieces are built around premium craftsmanship and one-of-a-kind materials that are environmentally sustainable, including certified and locally-produced organic cotton, and are digitally profound. Each item has digital properties as well – when consumers buy a physical piece, they get the digital version sent directly to their inbox as a product passport, gaining access to the VALACLAVA community where they can connect through physical and digital events around streetwear. In addition, each piece is tagged with scannable tags that unlock a custom digital platform that is a first in the fashion industry, revealing the authenticity, provenance, material traceability, rarity, and ownership of each piece.
“This unique partnership will give dedicated Call of Duty fans the chance to take part in a unique offering that melds the highest levels of gaming with a thoroughly modern line of clothing,” said Daniel Siegel, Activision Publishing’s Vice President of Licensing. “Gaming continues to evolve well beyond the playable experience,” Siegel said. “Call of Duty, in particular, leans heavily into both the social connectivity and cultural relevance of the franchise through unique content and collaborations.” Siegel added, “This reflects the multi-faceted interests of this broad and growing community.
