So the rumors were true! Louis Vuitton has teamed up with New York City street wear brand Supreme for their Fall/Winter 2017 line.
The luxury street wear collab includes bags, a baseball jersey, and a jacket printed with a jumble of LV monograms and the Supreme logo.
Luke Leitch, who does many of the men’s runway reviews for Vogue, reports that the smaller leather goods will sell for 200 to 300 euros (roughly $212 to $318) while bags and backpacks will retail for 1,500 to 3,000 euros (roughly $1590 to $3180). While the price of the bags may be way out of Supreme’s typical price range, it’s not anything out of the norm for a Louis Vuitton shopper.

Chairman and chief executive officer, Michael Burke says, “It’s just forward-thinking. People don’t really expect those sorts of things and I think that’s what’s nice. Actually, I think it’s the modern thing to do. Everyone’s talking about it and no one’s doing it, and we’re doing it.”
