Looking Gucci: Bored Ape Yacht Club Member Alexis Ohanian Wore Gucci Koda Cufflinks To Met Gala
Met Gala was anything but boring earlier this week as an early investor in Yuga Labs wore Koda cufflinks to the star-studded event and announced baby number two!
Bored Ape Yacht Club member and Reddit Co-Founder, Alexis Ohanian wore a Gucci designed outfit that was inspired by Yuga Labs' metaverse, Otherside, to this year’s Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City.
“At the #MetGala, @alexisohanian wore a Gucci tuxedo with silk bow tie. He completed his look with a customized brooch and cufflinks by Gucci, in partnership with @yugalabs,” Gucci tweeted last night. “The pieces, made in sterling silver, feature "Blue," a Koda character from Yuga Labs' metaverse Otherside. Photo by Anouk Klapp.”
The sterling silver pieces that Ohanian wore to the Meta Gala appear to be the same, or very similar, to the physical KodaPendants that Voyagers were able to purchase from Gucci during the House’s Otherside Relic KodaPendants drop last month.
Following the event, Ohanain shared a photo of himself with his wife, Serena Williams, at the Met and announced that they are expecting their second child!
“Mama & Papa love this parenting-thing, so we're back at it," Ohanian tweeted. “and @olympiaohanian is gonna be the best Big Sister—she's been asking & praying for this for a minute. #MetGala”
The Bored Ape Gazette congratulates Alexis and Serena on their second child and will continue to follow all things Gucci! Stay tuned for updates!
