The Louis Vuitton x Supreme Collab Looks eerily Similar to Something We have Seen before

It has been a few days since Louis Vuitton and Supreme took over fashion week. Their Fall/Winter 2017 (FW17) collection contained a slew of noteworthy Supreme branded pieces. This was the first time the streetwear brand supreme had ever been put on display during a formal fashion week. It’s safe to say that the fashion world turned upside down as the frenzy echoed loud throughout the industry — high-fashion and streetwear fans began salivating at the thought of being able to purchase the pieces in the near future.

Consequently, those fortunate enough to get an invite to the Louis Vuitton showroom in Paris would get a chance to see the items up close and personal. While things are pretty much still quiet in terms of official release date and locations, the collection is expected to roll out around the middle of the year. As for locations, all signs point to strictly to Louis Vuitton stores.

Take a look at some of the collection below.

In our opinion however, this collection seemed beneath Louis Vuitton. Sine when does a century old powerhouse like Louis Vuitton splash trendy streetwear logos all over their collection? Think about all the upscale places you would attend or the prestige you would want to command if you were wearing LV’s latest collection. Now you look like any other supreme hypebeast except your clothing cost $500 dollars more and is marginally distinguishable. Not to mention the blatant and disrespectful knock off of the style Dapper Dan perfected in the 90’s with LV’s design.

Take a look at some of Dapper Dan’s design below and compare them to the above Louis Vuitton x Supreme collection.
