Leaked images leads consumers to believe a possible collaboration between French designer Louis Vuitton and streetwear giant Supreme is happening.
Louis Vuitton Artistic Director, Kim Jones, posted an image late yesterday to Instagram teasing a possible collaboration with the two respective brands — then deleted it. Screen caps were captured of the image and shortly after the deletion leaked mock-ups of Supreme x Louis Vuitton pieces appeared on IG. One particular piece was seen at a LV fashion in Paris which featured the classic monogram and a mash-up Supreme sticker branded with a ‘Whatever’ smiley face.
The collaboration would mark a complete turnaround for the two brands following a legal dispute in 2000 after Supreme released an unauthorized skate deck incorporating its logo into Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram. Supreme recalled all items, but the feud was so bad the French label even demanded that all of the decks be incinerated, according to Complex.
