The last time Louis Vuitton and Supreme had a run-in, the former sent the latter a 'cease & desist' letter in 2000 against the streetwear label's LV monogram-inspired shirts. The fallout resulted in the forced recall of the collection, which, in turn, lent instant cult status to these now 'rare' pieces that can fetch more than real Vuitton merchandise on resale sites.
17 years later, Louis Vuitton and Supreme have finally harnessed their combined power to deliver a collaboration of double-branded styles from logo tees, hats, leather bags and trunks to skateboards (that come with their own monogram trunk, of course) that debuted alongside the Mens Autumn Winter 2017 collection that showed in Paris earlier this week.
“You can’t have the conversation of New York men’s wear without Supreme right now, because it’s such a massive global phenomenon,” explained LV men's Creative Director, Kim Jones.
The collection will be available in Louis Vuitton boutiques later this year. We suggest putting your name on a wait list, like, yesterday.
