Streetwear with distinct red colours mark the Louis Vuitton x Supreme limited edition collection released through LV stores worldwide last week.
The heavily-hyped collaboration between the French luxury brand and the hip streetwear label drew crowds all over the world when it officially went on sale after a short run of pre-release pop-up stores in major cities on June 30.
The products in the Louis Vuitton x Supreme collection range from a US$72,000 luxury red trunk and a $57,000 skateboard to more affordable items like sneakers – and even a bumbag at $2300.
Would-be buyers had to book non-transferrable appointments to choose a maximum of two items. In Singapore, people queued for more than 48 hours, with some shoppers hiring queue-sitters and swapping shifts to be sure of getting in the door.
Wiley entrepreneurs are seizing the opportunity for quick profits by reselling the limited edition items online.
