Earlier this year during Louis Vuitton‘s 2017 fall/winter Paris Fashion Week runway show, artistic director Kim Jones unveiled its collaboration with streetwear powerhouse Supreme. Including a range dipping in both apparel and accessories, everything from button-up shirts and scarfs to rucksacks and trunks could be found decorated with both Supreme’s box logo and Vuitton’s world famous Monogram.
And it was only days ago that listings for the Supreme x Louis Vuitton pop-up stores stared being announced, with the first being Sydney, Australia. As one can imagine, the masses were drawn to the streets, each vying to get a piece of this highly-coveted collaboration. Check out the photoset above straight from the coast city. It looks like plans are underway for a Supreme x Louis Vuitton pop-up store — at least according to a New York City street sign.
The notice, posted by Faran Krentcil, a contributing editor over at Elle, advertised a community meeting where locals could voice their concerns about proposed “street activities” from June 29 to July 2, hosted by “Louis Vuitton/Supreme” fo
a “(Product Launch)” at 25 Bond Street between Lafayette and Bowery. Read More : Louis Vuitton’s New Monogram Moment
Since then, however, GQ has reached out to LV’s client services departments in Dallas, Texas and San Francisco, California, with both branches insisting the collection is not cancelled, but it will not be arriving by the predetermined date.
As GQ points out, the forthcoming locations could possibly be delayed due to the selling out of Louis Vuitton x Supreme product, but either way, this is obviously good news for those who hope to land some of the goods in the future.
In April, rumors abounded that the hyped Supreme x Louis Vuitton collection would be launched via three pop-up events in New York, LA and Miami on June 30, which looks increasingly likely to be true.
As Fashionista point out, 25 Bond Street is a condo building which doesn’t quite fit the “street activities” description, though the community board might be referring to the mammoth lines could very well take over the whole of the LES if this event goes forward. Either way, let’s just hope SoHo residents give the pop-up their blessing. As always, check back for more information.
