Virgil Abloh‘s first Louis Vuitton collection marks a milestone in the history of streetwear, and according to WWD, Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke has reported that in the first 48 hours of LV’s Tokyo pop-up, Virgil Abloh’s debut SS19 collection has already outsold the iconic 2017 Louis Vuitton x Supreme collection by 30 percent.
With about 1,000 people queued up to be among the first to buy, Burke said that there is “pure unadulterated desire” at play and cited a “particularly strong demand for tailored ready-to-wear, mini trunks in white leather and transparent and iridescent weekend bags,” on speaking of the success of the Harajuku pop-up.
If you’re planning to cop, we’ve compiled the price list for Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton SS19 collection here, and with retail prices ranging from $290 up to $78,000 for the LV Male Courier 110 trunk, it’s safe to say that the resale market for these items will be sold for much higher.
Worldwide availability of the entire LV SS19 collection will debut at Louis Vuitton boutiques on January 18.
