UPDATED July 12, 5:06 pm:
The Supreme x Louis Vuitton collection may not be cancelled after all.
GQ is reporting that they heard from LV client services people at the company's Dallas and San Francisco locations that the collection will still be available...at some point. They confirmed, though, that it will not be happening on the originally-scheduled date of this coming Friday, July 14. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
Original story below:
On Tuesday night, Hypebeast broke the news by publishing an email sent by LV’s client services. The message read: “Regrettably, this collection will no longer be sold in any stores or online. However, please visit our social media channels and website for updates.”
The cancelation comes just a week after the LV x Supreme pop-up event was rumored to arrive at additional North American cities this Friday. People in cities like NYC, Houston, Honolulu, and Vancouver have spent the last week lining up in the hopes of getting their own LV x Supreme gear.
We’re sure most of them won’t take the news too well.
It’s not immediately clear why the collection will no longer be available.
The initial LV x Supreme pop-ups launched in late June in Seoul, Tokyo, Beijing, Paris, London, Miami, and Los Angeles. Though there were initial plans to set up a shop in NYC, the Manhattan Community Board No. 2 rejected the proposal back in May. Fashionista reported that it was a unanimous decision primarily based on the large number of expected of customers. Residents expressed concerns about crowd management and how sidewalk closures would affect access to their homes.
