Digital fashion company SKNUPS partners Dolce and Gabbana, raises $3.5 million

Digital fashion collectibles startup SKNUPS has raised $3.5 million in a pre-seed funding.

The contributions came from Redrice Ventures, Blue Wire Capital, and Adelpha.

SKNUPS also announced a deal with Dolce and Gabbana, to introduce their styles into online games.

SKNUPS, pronounced “skin-ups” was founded in 2020 but launched in stealth open-beta mode in December 2021.

The brand has since collaborated with up-and-coming fashion designers, but the Dolce and Gabbana partnership is its first major brand collaboration.
