Louis Vuitton "A Passion for Creation" in Hong Kong

leave a comment »

Louis Vuitton has just opened a new art exhibit in Hong Kong to display some of the inspirational works (both direct and indirect) behind their line. The show is entitled “A Passion for Creation” and the Hypebeast team was on hand to get some exclusive pics…

Some oversized vintage movie posters with a light monogram print over them were plastered all over the Museum for the event.


Obviously there was plenty of Takashi Murakami, as he brings some of his print designs to life.

Stephen Sprouse works were also on display. I love that Sid Vicious piece.

Inspirational artists from all over the world were featured in the event, and many more pics of the show can be seen here.

Open until August 9th at the Hong Kong Museum of Art.

Louis Vuitton x Takashi Murakami Store in Tokyo

leave a comment »

As the collaborations and special releases continue from Louis Vuitton, there is now a new Takashi Murakami redesigned Omotesendo LV store in Tokyo




The Tokyo store was completely done over in Murakami designs, including a huge plush character as a center attraction. As you can see Murakami was there for the unveiling also.

Kanye West for Louis Vuitton Ads

with 2 comments

The much anticipated sneaker collaboration between Louis Vuitton and Kanye West is slowly approaching release, and Kanye has gotten together with photographer extraordinaire Steve Shaw for some promo shots of his own to showcase the shoe and style he is going for.




1. I really love that he has taken the direction in his own hands with some very nice promo shots. (Not that LV would have fucked it up or anything since their advertising is amazing)

2. Everything looks great. Got to get my hands on at least one of these models over the summer.

The Conference Board: Footwear

with 3 comments

I know, I know. We slacked again on keeping The Conference Board segment consistent. Well to make up for it, this time we decided to do the segment live on Twitter. That’s right, our Board of trustees had to tell us exactly how they felt in 140 characters or less. Here’s how it all went down.

Kanye West x Louis Vitton Sneakers

More Info:SwaggerDap

cocoachanel: the heel is pretty sick. while i appreciate the simplicity of the shoe, i’m not sure this should be Kanye’s 1st stamp
mfastow: I like them. Simplicity is nice. Do I gotta discuss the pricetag? These are probably 1 months ren
kennethcold: not. just too much for me. i’m more low key, so the solid blood red wouldn’t work for me
john_swaggerdap: (price out of mind) I love these. So clean n simple, and the “heel tongue” is just awesome design (*starts special savings account*)
sh3lldon: red kanyes are nice, but am i dropping the cash? most likely no

Nike Dunk Low Teen Wolfs

More Info:SwaggerDap

mfastow: I just got called Teen Wolf yesterday, so I have an affinity for these kicks. Reminds me of the ALife Wu kicks.
kennethcold: wow. i think i may be in over my head, haha. pass on these. no fur on my shoes is a general rule of thumb
john_swaggerdap: another Nike where it’s concept > execution. I like them for what they are but they’re not touching my feet.
cocoachanel: the Nike’s are a pretty hot concept. only thing is they are just a bit too clean to sell the werewolf image they’re going for.
sh3lldon: Teen Wolf was the shit and the concept is there, when im back in the UK these would be my snow kicks!

Nike Air Griffey Max 1 Retro

More info: Hypebeast

mfastow: Nice throwback joints. I’d probably wear it more to support Griff than for the fashion. They match my Marlins fitted(s).
cocoachanel: Yo! My older sister had these back in ’95! I loved these shoes! the colorway is perfect. a must cop for any sneakerhead.
kennethcold: i’ma go ahead & say cop on this one. i always like the Griffey’s. i could rock w/ these
john_swaggerdap: in the top 5 retros ever for me, I remember wanting these as a kid. BUT dont really mess with athletic kicks so I’d pass
sh3lldon: The AGM1 retros are killing it, must cop for me i’m a sucka for retros tho!

Nike x Coraline Dunks

More Info:SwaggerDap

mfastow: Nike lost. Stuart Little did not deserve this.
kennethcold: cop. these are dope, sans the rodent. that’s my only issue, lol. like the color scheme otherwise
cocoachanel: Nike? why was the doll needed. otherwise the shoe is dope as hell. love the patchwork. and the button detail is hot.
john_swaggerdap: i’m out to see Coraline on my birthday so I have a chance at these, tail n all. Wish the toe box wasn’t leather though
sh3lldon: Coraline Dunks are just not for me point blank!

Roc Star Ato Matsumoto Sneaker

More info: Hypebeast

mfastow: 1970 Atlanta Braves logo meets Jackson Pollock meets Vin Diesel in The Chronicles of Riddick. “Ralph!!” – Cheech Marin
kennethcold: cop. fuck it, why not? need somethin’ space age in the arsenal. always been a fan of a nice red & black scheme
john_swaggerdap: Yes. Even tho the solid color Ato’s are far superior I still like these. Little cheaper than the Kanye joints too!
cocoachanel: I like it. the idea is simple and the color and design are hot. plus straps are hot this season.
sh3lldon: solid colorway atos > roc stars! The gradient doesnt work for me

Me
Hmm…the Kanye’s I dunno. It’s a dope lookin shoe but not that dope. So the price killed it for that one. It’s a recession
I’m not coppin the wolves. If someone got um for me Id def’ly rock ‘um. I feel like the fur will keep my feet toasty during Syracuse winters…
The Coraline’s are a definite for me. Especially if I can take the tail off. But im rockin out with the toy mouse on um!!
The Ato’s?! Idunno.Im not scared 2 rock pink, But Im not definitely sold.I feel like if I let the straps wildout tho,im in there

Meezyy: Lastly, who’s taking the superbowl?!
mfastow: Steelers 27-17. MVP: Polamalu
cocoachanel: CARDS ALL DAY! yes the steelers defense is amazing. but kurt warner has the ill quick release. i say cards 20-14.
Kennethcold: Steelers all day homie!
sh3lldon: I can see anyway except Pittsburgh
john_swaggerdap: Cards, Underdogs FTW!

More Pics: Kanye x Louis Vuitton

leave a comment »

Here’s just a few more pics of The Louis Vuitton Don kicks for LV from the launch party in Paris this week.

Looks like this 1st model will come in 4 colors: Black, White, Red, and Beige (which looks to be the only 2 tone pair)

Ye and the man Marc Jacobs

The sneakers are set to release by June of this year and should be in the $600 range. They’re more or less the 1st true sneaker to be released by LV (not including the Chuck style Damier printed ones) so I’ll bet people are going to be rushing to grab these.

Start saving.
