If you’re still under a rock and haven’t met this merger, please meet the Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Autumn – Winter 2017 collection. This is where longevity meets the limelight – where LV intersects with Supreme New York.
At this juncture, it’s safe to say we’ve officially moved on to the next great generation of fashion – perhaps in its early stages, but very much worth the attention. The irony is how much this generation is less high fashion and much more street style. In my opinion, we can attribute that push over the edge to the emerging millennial generation that’s currently influencing the style world.
The Autumn-Winter 2017 collection graced the runway in Milan and unleashed its version of leather dad-hats in relaxed business casual attire – if that’s even a thing.
Yet, if silk men pajamas could intertwine with a tailored two-piece suit, we now have Supreme LV.
The way the concepts melt together are just too easy breezy. Oversized luggage pieces as well as versatile crossbody satchels and modest Hobos, all of which well represented their mixed monikers. What I love the most is that neither designer takes from the other. Each designer adds more luster to the other already polished legacy.
Not only does this collection pay homage to the always-on-the-go mentality of our current society, but the lax and versatile if it. The sleek, loose-fitting, city-chic, busy yet cool looks are right on trend. There’s no doubt that many men across the globe will splurge for a weekender bag from the collection at least.
As unpredictable as it may seem – but necessary – street style may finally be revolutionizing high fashion.
Looking at the bond between Louis Vuitton and Supreme, this dynamic dyad most certainly will make history. Within days of the fashion show in Paris revealing the collection, the LV x Supreme accessories are popping up in Instagram posts and Pinterest boards everywhere.
From the looks of things, the pair hit the nail on the head merging the infamous monograms and styles together on classic pieces.
We can see the pleasant clash of designers on everything from T-shirts to bags and trunks. I’ve fallen in love, especially with the trunks. I’d say that comes from just a love of Louis, though. Anyways, while we can expect this new trend of street fashion to bubble up, we might expect nothing less than for it to monopolize the industry. Trust me, all I can say is, “Do pass go. Do Collect $200.” If you don’t believe me? See what other people have to say about the collection. Trust me, “Do pass Go. Do Collect $200.”
Or, at the very least grab yourself an accessory, for Heaven’s sake!
Call me biased, but I know what I see. I see a timeless brand, teaming up with a new age trendsetter to make history.
