The Unlikely Collab: Supreme x LV
Kim Jones unveiled the most monumental collaboration of the decade on the 19th of January, Supreme x Louis Vuitton.
For some, this came as a surprise. But for the most prominent streetwear influencers, they were given a heads-up and could prepare themselves for this pivotal moment in fashion history. What surprised everyone however, was the sheer size of this epic collection. We are in an era where the fashion climate favours collaborations, so it is no surprise that these two brands operating at the top of their game, joined forces.
Let's rewind to the year 2000, when a LV and Supreme collaboration was far from possible. For those that remember, LV sent Supreme a cease and desist letter for copying its logo.
This collaboration is extremely exciting for fashion enthusiasts, because not only does it show that big labels are now willing to work with labels they once considered 'outlaws' but it also proves the most unexpected things can happen in fashion. I think this collaboration is a perfect symbol of today's fashion culture; innovation and forward thinking.
