A New Beginning for NFTs and Fashion
We are Cult&Rain.
This is the first of many (hopefully) posts. We know this space is architectural and there is no blueprint, that’s why we’re here and doing this. We’re terrified and invigorated at the same time.
Firstly, we like to think that in the most volatile market in history, when constant change is the name of the game, innovation and creativity will prevail and the capacity to roll with the punches has always been our mantra. We are here today because we believe in change and there is a new way forward, especially for fashion brands. No one goes into business to lose money, so our every intent and ounce ha of energy is to give everyone something new and unexpected. We are here to stay, we’ve invested our personal money and there is no Plan B. It may not be perfect but it’s ours and we’re grounded in solid values and high quality execution.
Essentially, we’re creatives at heart. We love art and it will always remain that way. And that is our promise to the community.
And so ……
WELCOME TO THE FIRST LUXURY FASHION CRYPTO HOUSE. CULT&RAIN is a disruptive digital fashion brand merging innovative NFT art with exclusive high end physical redeemables.
We’re so psyched today as it marks the launch of our website. It’s been blood sweat and tears to get here and honestly we’re pinching ourselves everyday when we see how far we’ve come. We think the website is pretty badass, and we’ve strived to incorporate new ideas and innovations, while staying true to our roots. Check it out www.cultandrain.com
We come from the antiquated fashion system having spent too many years in meetings, talking about everything and nothing. We were all done with the parasitic corporate energy and wanted something more, something different, and so Cult&Rain was born.
And our vision is simple. CULT&RAIN is the first luxury fashion house born from the crypto universe. C&R is the triangulation of Web3, Fashion & Art tied together by luxury physical products.
So What Are We Doing?
Cult&Rain will launch with a highly collectible Genesis Drop, comprising 2000 4K animated NFT’s matched with 2000 trend-setting luxury sneakers. The Genesis Drop is made for crypto enthusiasts who have an affinity for stunning 3D NFT artwork and cutting-edge design. Bridging the gap between digital and physical, each NFT is tied to an identical pair of ‘Made in Italy’ luxury sneakers valued at over $1000, sourcing the finest materials and fabrication through C&R’s coveted Italian supply chains.
Who Are We?

We’re locking in the last artist now and will reveal the quartet very soon ! Stay tuned.

There is so much more to come. We’re excited for the future and more importantly to shape it forward with you. What gets us super psyched is the future is in our hands, and knowing we are in this together. We’re in for the long road, and the adventure that comes with, whatever that will be. Our journey to this point has been filled with so many emotions — rejection, accolade, confusion but mainly “what the f$ck are you talking about?”.
We’re sure the weeks ahead will be twist after turn but we promise transparency and authenticity, and hopefully smooth sailing. Whether you’re in or watching from the side, give a ‘fist bump’ for a taking on ‘an adventure of a lifetime’
