According to data submitted, the French luxury fashion house anticipates launching virtual goods, including perfumery, make-up, skin care preparations, and hair care preparations, and trading them in the metaverse and other virtual environments.

The Yves Saint Laurent joins a growing list of top luxury fashion houses that have continued to invest in the metaverse space. Last year in August, French luxury fashion house Hermes filled a similar trademark application to protect its name in the metaverse.

Other luxury fashion brands in the metaverse include Gucci, Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, and Dior Beauty, which collaborated with Emperia to launch a Christmas-themed virtual store last month. Last year, Paco Rabanne also teamed up with Selfridges to sell 12 ‘unwearable’ dresses as NFTs.
