Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 2, 2009 â€“ Hip young fashionistas rejoice, as a new partnership announced today brings Rocawear, the famous lifestyle apparel brand co-created by the legendary Jay-Z, to virtual worlds, social networks and online games including Outsparkâ€™s Project Powder. Project Powder takes players to a snowboarderâ€™s paradise where they can customize their characters and accessories, race against friends and pull off jaw-dropping stunts on the finest snow in the galaxy.
â€śOur online games and relevant user base provide great engagement channels for the right celebrities & brands. Weâ€™re excited about working with Rocawear, one the leading and hippest brands out there. Partnerships like these deliver the types of experiences and unique content we continuously seek to offer our community,â€ť said Wilson Kriegel, Outspark Vice President of Business Development.
The Rocawear virtual items, based on current and prospective physical Rocawear products, are now available from the Project Powder Pro Shop, accessible at http://store.outspark.com/projectpowder and within the Project Powder game.
The partnership was made possible by Virtual Greats, which connects celebrities, artists, intellectual property owners and brands with a new generation of fans, unlocking value through digital representations of real-world content in online communities. The deal marks the first time merchandise from Virtual Greats will be available in massively multiplayer online games. Rocawear will also be the first apparel brand to license its intellectual property for distribution in online communities via Virtual Greats, building on Virtual Greatâ€™s existing strength in celebrity, entertainment, and sports IP.
â€śWith a line of trendsetting products ranging from childrenâ€™s clothing to loungewear to sunglasses, Rocawear is the kind of lifestyle brand that is ideally poised to capitalize on the desire of online consumers to express themselves with fashion,â€ť said Dan Jansen, CEO, Virtual Greats.
