Virgil Abloh's First Louis Vuitton Collection Is Selling Faster Than the Supreme Collab Did
Ahead of its official worldwide launch on January 18, Virgil Abloh‘s debut Louis Vuitton collection is already flying off shelves at the brand’s Tokyo pop-up — to a degree that it’s selling out even faster than the Kim Jones-led Supreme collaboration did back in 2017.
According to WWD, the Parisian fashion house’s chief executive officer Michael Burke explained that the temporary store in Tokyo already outsold the Supreme collection by 30 percent within two days since its opening. In hopes of getting their hands on the highly anticipated collection, over 1,000 people queued up in front of the Harajuku pop-up.
Speaking of the collection’s mega success, Burke shared that the white leather Mini Trunks, transparent and iridescent Keepalls and tailored apparel are among the most sought-after items from the Spring/Summer 2019 range.
