NYC Council Denies Supreme x Louis Vuitton Pop-Up Proposal
The city of New York has denied the proposal for a Supreme x Louis Vuitton pop-up shop to be held at 25 Bond Street. News arrives following a public hearing on May 8 and a full board meeting held by Manhattan’s Community Board No. 2 on May 18, ultimately stating, “Therefore Be It Resolved that CB2 Manhattan STRONGLY recommends DENIAL of the Louis Vuitton/Supreme (Product) Launch, Bond St. between Lafayette St. and Bowery to be held from 6/29/17 – 7/2/17.”
The denied proposal was unanimous, as five Bond Street residents were also in attendance at the public hearing to verbally portray their “strong disapproval,” coinciding with “many emails” sent to the Community Board office from like-minded residents “expressing their outrage that such an event was being proposed for this quiet street.”
In addition, Supreme was unable to present any type of management plan for the much-anticipated release, which is expected to draw over 1,000 customers.
And also according to the Community Board, Supreme has a history of violating NYC permit requirements for at least four unauthorized events in city parks.
As for now, Louis Vuitton has yet to comment on the denied pop-up proposal.
