If you concern yourself primarily with women's designer fashion, you might not be familiar with Supreme. The legendary American streetwear brand inspires lines down the block whenever it restocks its stores, and its legions of fanboys snap up everything from hoodies to Supreme-branded bricks. (Yes, literal bricks. Supreme's fans transcend parody.) For Fall 2017, the world's biggest streetwear brand has joined forces with the world's biggest luxury brand: Louis Vuitton.
Louis Vuitton x Supreme debuted on LV's men's runway in Paris last week, and the collaboration goes far beyond the pieces bearing Supreme's famous red and white logo. (Although, fret not, there are plenty of those too.) The collaboration has its own red and white version of the iconic Louis Vuitton monogram, which appears on both trunks and the trunk-inspired Etui iPhone 7 case, as well as a monogram-free conventional camouflage print and the Supreme logo tonally embossed on black and brown Epi leather bags and accessories.
The collaboration also includes ready-to-wear and shoes; check out all of Vogue's behind-the-scenes photos of the collection below. The magazine also reports that, true to Supreme's elusive nature, different pieces from the collaboration will be dropped in different colors and locations, and at different times.

I love it when I'm right. I think most people do--the eventual confirmation of our own certitude about the world is deeply gratifying and almost soothing. Even when it's just about bags. Today, it is just about bags, and more specifically, the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini Backpack.
I liked this bag immediately after it debuted with the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 collection, and I had a feeling its popularity would rise steadily over time. LV seemed in no hurry to overexpose the design or push it into celebrity hands, and the simple, sporty modernity contrasted with the traditional monogram felt like a winning combination.
Hate to say I told you so, but: I told you so. The line has expanded in the 11 months since I initially sung its praises, and although all the sizes have enjoyed celebrity interest in that time (as you'll see below), it seems like the smallest version--the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini Backpack--is the one winning at the moment. Both Rihanna and Bella Hadid have carried it in the past week, and I have a certain suspicion it will spread more in the months ahead.
Check out three versions of the Palm Springs Mini currently available, as well as all the other celebrity spottings we've made from the line.
