The M3TALOVE Outfits

Victor Weinsanto

Inspired by the unique character and personality of each LIGHTSUM member, French fashion designer Victor Weinsanto created a cool collection of fun, bold, and colorful outfits.

Victor Weinsanto launched his namesake brand in 2020 after two years with Jean Paul Gaultier, where savoir-faire, craftsmanship, and freedom were ingrained in his creative process. A former professional dancer, Victor brings his love of performing arts into fun, colorful and cabaret-themed presentations. He finds inspiration in live entertainment and art as well as history, architecture, and music. 

Weinsanto and BNV worked side-by-side with the LIGHTSUM members to capture their individual style and personality in the final avatar and looks. “My idea was to connect to the LIGHTSUM spirit—each girl has such a strong personality, and that was really inspiring to me,” saidWeinsanto, who bonded with the band both through creative online-conversations and in-person in Los Angeles during KCon in August 2022.

“It is a great honor for us to collaborate with Victor Weinsanto, who is a rising star in the fashion industry. The experience with NFTs and fashion through this collaboration was mind-blowing and so much fun! The designs are all reinterpreted in Victor’s and our own style, and we all presented our own opinions and joined in from the planning stage,” added LIGHTSUM.
