    I have only just caught up on the news that Louis Vuitton and Supreme have collaborated for a collection of designer goods. I must admit, I was taken aback; I didn't see Supreme and Louis Vuitton fitting together. I had thought they had very different brand images. Though I can definitely appreciate that Louis Vuitton's image has modified over time, as they appeal towards the 'hype' end of the market.

    I've linked a few sources, browse whichever you see fit. Some information is also available on the Louis Vuitton website.

    What are your thoughts on the collection? And the collaboration?

    I wish I could rep you for this.

    This has tainted my image of Louis Vuitton. I used to adore them - not sure how I feel about the brand now. It is a shame really.

    Wow, it's so disappointing.

    Is that what they call stylish nowadays? It looks vulgar and cheap. It's basically cheap design with huge brand names written all over the place.

    The red canvas with white LVs is vulgar in itself. But slapped with the supreme logo, it becomes an awful caricature. It looks like a ridiculous counterfeit good.

    Agreed guys.

    Supreme wearers are the worst kind of people. I hate brands like Supreme that have no rich history yet they make exclusive 'collections' that generate massive queues from teens in London who then log on to 'wavey garms' to trade a £70 white t shirt with a logo on it.

    Disappointing from LV.

    It's all hype. All these brave teenage boys will be trying to buy anything with 'Supreme' written over it and try to re-sell it at 'rape' prices :naughty:

    It can be the most ugly item and these people will happily hand over their parent's card details in the hope of making 50 quid to buy another tacky tracksuit. Preach?

      True. The concern here is over Louis Vuitton's image primarily though. I was considering purchasing more from them in the future, in fact soon. But this has made me reluctant to do so. I am gearing towards other designers now, a shame considering the sentimental value I held for Louis Vuitton. I wonder how many other consumers are feeling the same way?

      In all honesty, a far better shout than purchasing from this try-hard and nauseating collection.

      They are seriously monstruous and the entire collection seems like a bad joke. The world is so messed up, people would simply buy anything with an enormous logo on it.

      Designers clearly don't even put any effort into their pieces anymore cause social media clearly manipulated the entire world into thinking this is what "cool people" wear. :lol:

      I can see why LV did this, to boost their sales by appearing "cool". However, it certainly taints their image by deigning to collaborate with a hipster brand.

      This collection looks tacky af.

      That is EXACTLY it! :toofunny:

      I've always thought Louis Vuitton looked pretty tacky tbh. Separate the naff all-over print from the LV name and it looks pretty crap. It's not a particularly nice print, and it's literally all over everything they make.
      I disagree, Louis Vuitton's classic monogram print is iconic and never looked tacky to me. I used to associate it with class, which drove my passion for the brand:

      LV is overpriced and ostentatious.
