Attention Aku fans! The cryptonative NFT will come to the fungible world via the Aku x Paper Planes 9Fifty Snapback hats, which are being produced in collaboration with Paper Planes, the famed New York based fashion brand that combines culture and streetwear fashion.
According to the announcement, a limited run of only 350 of Aku x Paper Planes 9Fifty Snapback hats, and they will be available exclusively to Akutar holders.
The limited run Aku x Paper Planes 9Fifty Snapback Hat is black with a green undervisor, features the embroidered Paper Planes logo alongside Aku graphic details on the front, removable Paper Planes and Aku logo pins on the crown, and additional Aku artwork on the right side.
Created by artist and former MLB player Micah Johnson, Aku was launched in February 2021. Since then, the digital explorer has since become the first NFT to be optioned for film and television projects, as well as the first NFT to travel to space. Aku is a conduit to empower the next generation of astronauts, explorers and dreamers.
The original Paper Planes Hat has become highly coveted within the streetwear community, often referred to as the “The Crown.”
The Aku x Paper Planes collaboration is significant as it is only the second Paper Planes crown in history to allow a partner’s design to be featured alongside the Planes logo on the front of the hat, as past collaborations usually leave their imprint on the designated hallmark right side of the hat.
“Paper Planes and Aku both remind us to dream and aim to inspire us with the confidence and patience to pursue greatness in achieving our dreams,” comments Summer Watson, President and Co-Founder of Aku.
We’ve been mission aligned from the beginning, and excited to be able to share the piece of history this collab will represent.” – Summer Watson, President and Co-Founder of Aku.
