The story of the bags born from the collaboration between Louis Vuitton and Supreme.
Fashion today is full of collaborations between different designers from similar fields or from very different domains. What matters is that each partner brings something interesting to the partnership and what really counts is the end result of the artistic exchange. In 2017, Louis Vuitton, the leading French brand, entered into what can be described as an unexpected collaboration with the New York brand Supreme. The two brands may not appear to have anything in common but the announcement they would be releasing joint designs left the fashion world reeling. It was what you could call in communications terms a master stroke. Here we have a combination of a prestigious House of luxury and a streetwear brand that started taking the world by storm in the early 2000s. The line of designs included clothing, and also accessories like the famous red and white bags.
A winning combination with a blend of styles.
The collection of clothing and accessories by the two brands came into being for the 2017/2018 Autumn-Winter season. The mix of styles was a brilliant combination of luxury and sporty. When you take a closer look at the bags from the collection, you can identify Supreme's codes with the famous monogram alongside the bright red colour. The hand of the House of Louis Vuitton is also present in the leather backpacks and travel bags with widespread use of the colour brown. Here, traditional French know-how and the codes of American popular culture are thrown in the mix together. It is the perfect opportunity for the two labels to broaden their focus and reach a whole new audience.

The collaboration between Louis Vuitton and Supreme ended up being cut short when Vuitton decided to close the pop-up stores before the dates initially scheduled. It comes as no surprise that the legendary bags born of the collaboration became even rarer than ever. Luckily, Vestiaire Collective gives you the chance to buy these hard-to-find pieces which were pure victims of their success.
