At this point what people need aren’t more virtual reality headsets and a metaverse. Instead, a wise investment would be blackout shades so they’d stop seeing what’s in the news.
Ready or not, check out a virtual Mark Zuckerberg wearing low-rise jeans and visible underwear, because that’s what the metaverse seems to be all about.
Meta will launch an online store where you’ll be able to buy Balenciaga, Prada or Thom Browne outfits. Not for yourself but for your digital avatar, which you’ll use on Facebook, Instagram and Messenger.
The news of this launch came in a livestream where Eva Chen, the director of fashion partnerships at Instagram, showed off what types of digital clothes you could expect in the metaverse.
The example? Zuckerberg wore the pants that gave everyone nightmares back in the early 2000s: a low waist that revealed more than it should and flared pants that soaked up every puddle in your path.
According to Meta, this is a fresh fit.
Then again, this is the company that thinks we want to spend our days in the metaverse.
No thanks for me, I’d rather go back to drowning my Sims!
