Louis Vuitton has cancelled its entire supreme collection just days before its scheduled for U.S. pop-up shops.
Louis Vuitton’s long-awaited Supreme collection was slated to hit pop-up stores across the U.S. and Canada later this week, but now it looks like hype beasts won’t get their hands on the collab after all.
In an email sent to Hypebeast, the French Fashion House’s client service revealed “the collection will no longer be sold in any stores or online.”
The abrupt decision comes just weeks after Vuitton announced its U.S. pop-up locations in Miami and Los Angeles.
Prior to its U.S. scheduled locations, successful pop-ups for the collaboration were previously held in London, Sydney, Beijing, Paris, Seoul and Tokyo.
Louis Vuitton has yet to comment on why the collection won’t launch in North America but it looks like your Supreme x LV skateboard dreams have officially been crushed.
Since its debut at Men’s Fashion Week back in January, Hypebeasts across the globe have been waiting to get their hands on the Supreme x Louis Vuitton collaboration.
The long awaited collection spanning from ready-to-wear to a skateboard is officially here to shop.
The pieces, however, won’t be available online or in Louis Vuitton stores but instead via eight pop-up shops around the world. Temporary pop-ups in Paris, London, Miami, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Beijing, Seoul and Sydney will offer leather goods, clothing, shoes, accessories and exclusive items offered only in the shops.
After a New York-based Supreme X Louis Vuitton pop-up store was unanimously denied by Manhattan’s community Board, the only U.S. locations to shop the collab will be Los Angeles and Miami.
The LA pop-up will be located at 833 East 3rd Street while the Miami location will be held at Vuitton’s Design District store.
The pop-up locations are scheduled to open on July 14th and it’s likely that stock will sell out soon after. Get ready for these pieces to take over the street style scene in no time.
