The case for another round of Supreme x Louis Vuitton grows stronger by the day, with recent whispers hinting at a Fall/Winter 2022 release date for the latest installment of the collaboration. Plus, it'd be a natural follow-up to the Louis Vuitton Air Force 1 drop.
On March 11, leading sneaker leaker PY_RATES trumpeted that a second Supreme x Louis Vuitton collaboration is "coming soon."
Backed by a follow from the late Virgil Abloh himself, PY_RATES is presumably one of the more trustworthy gossip mills.
Who knows, perhaps they even got a little earworm from the LV creative director, considering his expected creative involvement in the forthcoming Supreme x Louis Vuitton collaboration.
After all, the page was the first to announce Off-White™'s Nike Dunk Low "The 50" months ahead of Abloh's announcement.
Admittedly, Abloh did initially dismiss PY_RATES' horrid colorway mock-ups but didn't actually deny the outrageous release of 50 dunks, 'cuz that part was accurate.
Anyways, PY_RATES didn't expound on details about Supreme x Louis Vuitton 2.0 but the news was swiftly picked up by other leakers across social media.
The news, if true, raises many questions. The biggest one, of course, is: "Was the new collab ever under Virgil Abloh's supervision?"
But could Abloh really make more Supreme/Vuitton magic happen?
Well, it's not so far-fetched to think, given how prolific the late creative director was. The man basically redefined the word "collaboration," after all.
Highsnobiety has reached out to Louis Vuitton for comment.
While I pray Py Rates' "coming soon" means a 2022 release, who knows when (and even if) we'll see the Supreme x Louis Vuitton sequel.
It's not hard to imagine that a new collab between the two being even more legendary than the first, with Supreme back in its 2014 bag and Abloh's impact lingering at LV.
Plus, Supreme x Burberry brought back release brawls and block-by-block lines. Can you imagine the madness that a new LV Bogo tee would bring?
