In the latest instalment of what has become a seasonal drop, Supreme team up with Vans once again to reimagine two classic silhouettes for Autumn/Winter 2016.
The release consists of the skate ready Authentic Pro and Sk8-Hi Pro, both arrive with Vans' signature checkerboard pattern updated with subtle Supreme logo branding, applied to the entirety of the upper of the Authentic and to the lateral panels on the Sk8-Hi. Both pairs are offered up in classic blue, black and red colour options with contrasting cream checks and stark white side stripe branding and sole unit. As with all of Vans Pro models, the styles have been upgraded with performance features such as the Vans UltraCush HD sockliner and vulcanized outsole, while a robust canvas and premium suede dresses the uppers.
The Supreme x Vans 2016 AW16 collection will drop in-store at the brands London, Paris, NY and LA locations, as well as online, this Thursday, October 20.
Supreme pay homage to fellow New York native and one of the worlds most influential and celebrated graffiti artists - Blade in their latest release.
From the early age of just 15, Blade has been prevalent on the street art scene, busy dubbing on NY's subway in the early 70's, by the 80's he had already earned his title as "King Of Graffiti" with over 5,000 trains bearing his work. Throughout his career Blade's work has remained unique, maintaining a traditional approach towards lettering and characters, with imaginative designs focused around perspective, abstraction, and geometry. Blade was also responsible for founding iconic graffiti crew 'The Crazy 5'.
For their latest drop, Supreme deliver a five graphic tees, one focused around the notorius Gucci Mane, as well as a hoody, long and short sleeve tees, skateboard decks and a pin, all of which featuring artwork from Blade himself.
The collection will be available at the brands London, Paris, LA and NY locations, as well as online, from Thursday October 6th.
Another week has gone by and another Thursday Supreme drop is on it's way, this time linking up with iconic reggae artists Barrington Levy and Hyman "Jah Life" Wright on a capsule release.
The project focuses around the emerging dancehall reggae sound of the late 1970's/early 1980's, and the coming together of the New York and Jamaican scene thanks to pioneering producer Hyman “Jah Life” Wright and a renowned young vocalist named Barrington Levy. This period in time and that particular partnership would go on to propel reggae and dancehall on to the global stage, transcending way beyond its previously exclusive Jamaican audience, breaking down barriers along the way.
The collection itself references iconic imagery from the era, drawing inspiration from notable albums such as "Bounty Hunter", "Englishman" and "Robin Hood”, and applying original artwork from the partnership's works across tees, tank tops and pull-over hoodies, which are available in various seasonal colour options.
The Supreme x Barrington Levy & Jah Life will be dropping at Supreme's London, New York, Los Angeles & Paris locations, as well as online, on June 16th.
Supreme and ANTIHERO follow up their 2014 collaborative capsule release with an extensive collection for Summer 2016.
The release is definitely one of Supreme's more obvious ventures, for two camps who have given so much and share such a storied history in skateboarding to come together makes perfect sense, and the collection provides a tangible representation of both brands free wheeling attitude. The diverse collection is comprised of staple silhouettes including tees, hoodies and sweaters, alongside more considered items such as short-sleeve shirts, lightweight outerwear and workwear style bottoms. A hybrid logo design featuring ANTIHERO's iconic eagle reworked with a subtle Supreme box logo detailing features throughout, as well as 'The Pope/Slayer' design on select pieces. The cohesive release is rounded off with four deck designs, again featuring the hybrid logo and Pope logo, while all pieces in the collection follow a rich colour palette of yellow, red, green, black and white.
To celebrate the release, long-time collaborate Will Strobeck has put together a short clip featuring ANTIHERO's Andy Roy, Raney Beres and more, hanging out and skating through the city. The Supreme x ANTIHERO Summer 2016 collection will be launching at the brands London, NY, LA and Paris locations, as well as online, from June 2nd.
To celebrate the brands further expansion in to Europe with the opening of their Paris store, Supreme and long time collaborator William Strobeck have dropped a new 10-minute clip dubbed “Pussy Gangster”.
The video, which features additional footage from Johnny Wilson, follows riders Sage Elsesser, Sean Pablo, Tyshawn Jones, Na-Kel Smith, Kevin Bradley, Ben Kadow, Jason Dill, Mark Gonzales, Greg Cuadrado, Vincent Touzery and Kevin Rodriguez, through the streets of Paris and shredding the increasingly popular République spot, which has breathed new life in to the cities skate scene in recent years.

Having been the subject of the hugely popular Nike SB x Supreme collaboration back in July last year, Nike's classic GTS tennis silhouette returns as part of a main line release.
The early 90's tennis shoe was reworked in to five stand out colour ways, all with original features in tact for the Supreme collab, which celebrated the shoes popularity amongst the skaters of the era. As you can expect with any Supreme drop, the collab was met with a great response and pulled the modest silhouette back in to the limelight of both skateboarders and sneaker lovers across the globe.
Looking to capitalise on the new found popularity of the GTS, Nike have released the shoe in a simplistic black/white colour option, featuring a durable canvas upper with hardwearing suede overlays on the toe and heel. Tonal lacing and a small embroidered swoosh logo on the side panels complete the simplistic look of the shoe, all of which sits on top of a contrasting white rubber outsole which features Nike's signature Zoom cushioning.
You can pick up the Nike SB Zoom GTS over at Flatspot. now.
Time for the internet to go into meltdown once again as Supreme unveil their latest collection for Fall/Winter 2015 in this lookbook featuring team rider Sage Elsesser.
The coveted skate/streetwear imprint continues to develop their staple designs as well as introducing several new experimental styles that perhaps pull away from the brands renowned ‘streetwear’ aesthetic, drawing subtle influences from a variety of subcultures throughout. I always find myself struggling for words to write about Supreme releases as in the most part, the scale and quality speaks for itself. You know that you’re going to get originality, you know theres going to be the hugely popular box logo design worked in somewhere and you know that the collection will be met with mixed reactions, despite selling out in no time. Unfortunately for most, your favourite piece might be out of reach and unless you’re super quick or super lucky, you will struggle to get hold of the most wanted styles from the collection. Regardless, this collection is too good not to share as Supreme give us another reminder as to why its considered one of the most desirable brands on the planet.
The simplistic lookbook highlights 23 different looks, pulling key styles from the comprehensive range. The outerwear selection takes centre stage with a diverse selection of silhouettes and stand out pieces including the ‘Justice For All’ fishtail parka, embroidered pull over anoraks with tonal branding and the colour blocked hooded jacket. The expected graphic tees, box logo sweaters and flannel shirting bulk out the release, sitting alongside some of the more interesting pieces in the quarter zip pullovers, argyle knits, minimal turtle neck tops and white full length dungarees. The collection is rounded off with a healthy selection of headwear that utilises several logo designs and a variety of premium materials. To accompany the mainline release, the Fall/Winter collection also sees new offerings from regular collaborators including Champion, Playboy and Schott NYC, as well as an imaginative array of accessories from skate hardware to crowbars.
The Supreme Fall/Winter 2015 collection will be arriving at the brands London, NY and LA locations on the 20th of August, and will be available online as the webstore reopens on August 27th.
