A long line of people have been camped outside The Galleria, some for days, to get their hands on items from the Supreme x Louis Vuitton collection pop-up shop. But the event has been canceled.
As of Wednesday morning, there were still about two dozen people in chairs and tents sleeping outside, waiting for the pop-up shop that is unlikely to happen on Friday. LV officials sent an email to Hypebeast saying the collaboration between the French luxury fashion house and the New York streetwear label Supreme “will no longer be sold in any stores or online.”
It appears the collection, which debuted at Paris Fashion Week in January, was only available to those who had been able to stop by one of the eight pop-up stores worldwide (L.A., Sydney, Tokyo, Beijing, Paris, Seoul, London and Miami) during the first week of July. But given its popularity, many in the fashion world are betting a new round of pop-up shops will pop up in the future. It is not known at this time if Houston is one of them.
