UPDATE: Louis Vuitton Singapore announced that a raffle or ballot system will be applied for purchase of Louis Vuitton x Supreme collection. More details below.
There’s no doubt which fashion giants would be named responsible for the collaboration of the year. A 7,500-strong crowd formed a snaking queue in Tokyo, 2,000 in London and 1,500 in Sydney — and it was only the morning after luxury behemoth Louis Vuitton broke the news that six pop-up shops dotted around the world would carry its Fall 2017 collaboration with cult streetwear label Supreme.
Mere hours later, pieces from the partnership popped up on sites such as eBay and Grailed for thousands of dollars more than their original prices. Throw Louis Vuitton into the hyped Supreme culture, and this is what you get. Louis Vuitton x Supreme is clearly the ‘It’ partnership of 2017.
Singapore’s turn is just around the corner. Taking place this weekend, there’s a few things you need to know from the much-anticipated drop. First, the queue unofficially started last Friday, 7 July, with around 50 people in line. We’re not kidding – hypebeasts are called hypebeasts for a reason.
Second, queue slots are being sold for S$3,000 a pop and a roll-calling queue system was launched on Carousell with warnings that line-cutters “better think twice.”
Thirdly, Louis Vuitton just announced that a raffle or ballot system will be applied. Queueing for raffle registration will be held the day before the drop. As overnight camp-outs are no longer necessary and luck is all you need, may the odds be ever in your favour.
Here’s all you need to know from Louis Vuitton x Supreme’s drop on our sunny shores.
