It's contemporary art meets '90s iconography.

— will be sold as moving, digitized videos. In von Unwerth’s Supermodel Series, five famous images taken in the late ‘80s and ‘90s are transformed into animated artworks via NFTs, or non-fungible tokens. “Non-fungible” means the digital items are unique and one-of-a-kind, and thus cannot be replaced. The works will be auctioned off by celebrity NFT platform

on October 21, and can be purchased using the cryptocurrency Ethereum. What a time to be alive. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Cryptograph (@cryptographco)The photographs come to life in the new collection, which blends contemporary artwork with classic ’90s iconography. One of the images of Schiffer, taken in 1988, was featured in a now-famous Guess campaign, where the model sports a one-piece bathing suit, choker and cowboy hat — now reimagined with the water around her, glistening. Another 1998 shot from the series shows Schiffer staring down the camera with her hair in a perfectly tousled up-do, the strands framing her face seemingly blowing in the wind.

Also featured is the iconic 1995 image of Kate Moss slouched in a movie theatre chair, donning square frame glasses and carefully placing her fingers on her lips. The animated NFT shows blurred lights moving behind Moss, while sparkles dance along the frames of her eyewear.

The collection has two enchanting Naomi Campbell NFTs, including a 1995 image of her in bedazzled mouse ears and a 1991 shot of the model looking past the camera seductively while holding a corded telephone (remember those?) with sparkling Coca Cola cans in her hair in lieu of rollers.

For the Supermodel Series, a percentage of the proceeds will go towards UNICEF, Imperial Health Charity and Fashion for Relief, an organization founded by Campbell in 2005.
