With its rise in luxury fashion, streetwear is now set to dominate the world of fine art. One example is the impending sale of a Supreme x Louis Vuitton Malle Courier Trunk by Heritage Auctions. Crafted with premium Gaboon wood, lozine leather trimmings, golden brass locks, and adorned with LV’s signature monogram, the upscale item is surely more of an art collectible than an accessory. The trunk is just one of 17 rare items from the streetwear giant, alongside other collaborations in the auction house’s upcoming “Urban Art” sale.
