Needless to say, the season’s most coveted menswear items carry Louis Vuitton and Supreme logos. There’s been so much buzz about Louis Vuitton’s autumn/winter 2017 menswear collectionshown in Paris this February, which featured items created in collaboration with streetwear giant Supreme.
“People might say that I’m just jumping on the [streetwear] bandwagon, but it’s part of my DNA,” says Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton’s menswear artistic director, in an earlier interview with us. “[The collection] has probably freaked a lot of people out, but in a positive way.”
Louis Vuitton’s Hong Kong website posted an update on the collection earlier today, allowing fans to register for appointments to buy the limited-edition items.
Once the appointment is confirmed, it won’t be transferable and it only allows a one-time entry. Each guest can purchase up to two Louis Vuitton x Supreme products.
The products, ranging from T-shirts to sneakers, include an ultra-luxurious trunk that retails for HK$565,000 as well as a skateboard that sells for HK$455,000 a pop.

The limited-edition Louis Vuitton and Supreme collaboration items were pre-launched on June 30 in Miami, Florida, Los Angeles and other pop-up locations worldwide, including Sydney, Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Paris and London. Fans camped out for days at global pop-up stores to get the haul of the year.
In Beijing, the pop-up store was in the city’s artsy 798 area. The pop-up spots, however, are now closed.

Louis Vuitton also launched a campaign on Wechat in China for fans to try their luck at getting their hands on the collection.
The products are highly sought-after, due to their limited quantity, and are reportedly fetching a much higher resale price. One of the hit items – a box logo hoodie – is fetching up to US$25,000.
