Finally, some detailed photos of Louis Vuitton and Kanye’s collabo. This is said to be “one” of the five designs that are being worked on and will be available this upcoming June. The price tag? Who knows, but rest assured…its probably swinging towards the higher-end of the consumer population. But time will tell. Here’s the official press release via NiceKicks & Hypebeast
PARIS â€” Marc Jacobs and the Louis Vuitton men’s studio director Paul Helbers have some design competition this season. Kanye West, who was sitting front row at the Vuitton show, has designed a line of five LV sneakers. Only one design, above, was featured in the show â€” a monochromatic midtop with no frills, save for a quilted flap in the back, all the easier to tuck pants into. â€œThe inspiration came from a jacket with a huge collar in the movie â€˜Dune,’ â€ West says. â€œMost sneakers focus on the tongue, so I wanted to do something different.â€ West knows whereof he speaks: he says he has no idea how many shoes he owns, but he does know that he routinely needs to send shipments off to storage. The LV-meets-Kanye kicks will be available at Louis Vuitton stores in June.
