It was just last Wednesday that Louis Vuitton announced that its Supreme collaboration was set to hit more pop-ups across the U.S. and Canada, including Los Angeles and Miami, but we have some bummer news for hypebeasts ready to cash in on a glossy leather skateboard trunk. Late on Tuesday, the Parisian house's client services confirmed in an email to Hypebeast that the Supreme x Louis Vuitton collection "will no longer be sold in any stores or online." (A spokesperson for Louis Vuitton did not immediately respond to our request for comment.)

Meanwhile, a sales representative for Louis Vuitton's SoHo location in New York also stated to Hypebeast that the Supreme x Louis Vuitton drop that was planned for this Friday, July 14 has been canceled, as have all other U.S. pop-up locations.

This, of course, comes quite suddenly: It was only last week that Louis Vuitton confirmed that more pop-ups were coming to North America, after finding vast international success in cities like London, Sydney, Beijing, Paris, Seoul and Tokyo, the latter of which was forced to close early because it had run out of stock entirely. But in New York at least, the writing was on the wall: Back in May, the collaboration's New York location, planned for 25 Bond Street, was unanimously denied by Manhattan's Community Board No. 2, voicing a myriad of concerns, most savagely Supreme x Louis Vuitton's inability to "articulate how this product launch will benefit the community in any way." 

So far, Louis Vuitton has kept mum as to their rationale for canceling the future pop-ups and drops, but we'll be sure to update this post as we learn more. In the meantime, feel free to browse every short-lived piece from the collaboration below. And if you're really desperate? See what pieces are going for on resale sites, like Grailed, where you can cop the collection's signature fanny pack for $6,490. A steal!
