Louis Vuitton Teams Up With Supreme for Fall 2017 Men’s Bags and Accessories That are Sure to Sell Out

If you concern yourself primarily with women’s designer fashion, you might not be familiar with Supreme. The legendary American streetwear brand inspires lines down the block whenever it restocks its stores, and its legions of fanboys snap up everything from hoodies to Supreme-branded bricks. (Yes, literal bricks. Supreme’s fans transcend parody.) For Fall 2017, the world’s biggest streetwear brand has joined forces with the world’s biggest luxury brand: Louis Vuitton.

Louis Vuitton x Supreme debuted on LV’s men’s runway in Paris last week, and the collaboration goes far beyond the pieces bearing Supreme’s famous red and white logo. (Although, fret not, there are plenty of those too.) The collaboration has its own red and white version of the iconic Louis Vuitton monogram, which appears on both trunks and the trunk-inspired Etui iPhone 7 case, as well as a monogram-free conventional camouflage print and the Supreme logo tonally embossed on black and brown Epi leather bags and accessories.

The collaboration also includes ready-to-wear and shoes; check out all of Vogue’s behind-the-scenes photos of the collection below. The magazine also reports that, true to Supreme’s elusive nature, different pieces from the collaboration will be dropped in different colors and locations, and at different times.

This collaboration is genius. Whether the collection is aesthetically pleasing or worth the money is up for debate of course, and it’s a matter of personal taste. I like it, despite it being nothing like my personal style; I’d totally buy and use the heck out of the Supreme logo duffel bag.

But the young and moneyed (and older hip people like Pharrell) are going to LOSE THEIR MINDS over this partnership, a perfect intersection of streetwear and high fashion. And I predict a TON of frenzied copycats and knockoffs, like with the LV Multicolore monogram in the 00’s.

The color and style of the bag is great. The word “supreme” stamped on it ruins the bag. Crass. Total misfire. Yes, it will probably sell, but I wouldn’t want to be seen with a man who thinks it cool to carry such a tacky bag (my husband has LV, Fendi, and Burberry messenger bags, so I’ve got nothing against man bags)

I agree. Again the “lets slap something on top and call it new” design approach. Dreadful. And what’s the point of a gigantic S-U-P-R-E-M-E??

It’s not my taste but I appreciate the fact that this collaboration will be very popular with some elite shoppers. It shows great confidence for two iconic fashion empires to merge so boldly in one collection. Aside from the Supreme collaboration, the runway show also featured amazing bags and accessories made of epi leather and monogram canvas. Those looked phenomenal! Kim Jones is really an artist!

I love it! This collab transcends basic aesthetics and delves into the question of cultural value. What makes things newsworthy? What is the price tag for desire? I was about to consign Nicolas Ghesquiere’s LV to a disciplined tasteful high fashion era, but he knows how to be provocative too.

This is not from Nicolas Ghesquiere but from Kim Jones.

This is for sure geared towards a younger audience. Anyone familiar with the brand Supreme is aware that it is a highly sought after street brand with demand so high that it’s a business just finding it and reselling it. This collab is genius and a money making dream. Getting any Supreme item at retail is tough. Getting a hand on one of these items will take money, a plan, and luck.

No way. It’s look to me just a kitsch .Nothing more.What gone be next collaboration? Old Navy? Yellow colors with large OLD NAVY logo? After green with some other logo? It looks like Kim Jones does not have any of his own ideas and taking easy way. One more collection like tat will kill LV ,man’s line at list. As someone write before ” next collection at Target”
Complete CRAP.
