Supreme x Louis Vuitton
High fashion hits the streets
This month’s debut of the Supreme x Louis Vuitton collaboration feels like seeing two favorite friends meet and get along famously. Revealed at the Louis Vuitton Men’s Autumn/Winter 2017 Fashion Show at Le Palais Royale, Supreme x Louis Vuitton is full of unexpected combinations that somehow go together just so. Six handbag styles are included in the collection, along with a backpack, holdall and messenger bag. Denim baseball jerseys, jackets and scarves are printed with a mix of LV monograms and the Supreme logo, plus a red Louis Vuitton trunk can be had with a monogram skateboard and matching tool kit to match.
Creative director Kim Jones has been dropping heavy hints at the idea of a possible design partnership, and now he’s finally talking: “I just feel that the strength of their graphic versus the strength of the Louis Vuitton graphic, and that kind of Pop Art feeling, it works together perfectly,” Jones has commented. He’s got that right—these two are a perfect match. See for yourself in the Louis Vuitton Men’s Autumn/Winter 2017 Runway Show video, above.
