Alasdair McLellan, Kate Moss for Supreme, 2012
In April 1994, Supreme opened its doors on Lafayette Street in downtown Manhattan, becoming the home of New York City skate culture. At its core was a group of neighborhood kids, skaters and local artists who became the store’s staff, crew, and customers. Over 25 years, Supreme has expanded from its New York City origins into a global community with 11 stores worldwide and an even larger network of friends and family that make up the fabric of the brand.
To commemorate its 25 years, Supreme will release a Swarovski® crystal Box Logo T-Shirt and Hooded Sweatshirt. The Hooded Sweatshirt features 1,201 Swarovski® crystals and the T-Shirt features 1,161 crystals. The crystals are applied by hand in New York City.
Available in-store NY, Brooklyn, LA, London, Paris and online April 25th.
Available in Japan on April 27th.
Tabboo! for Supreme
American artist and performer Tabboo! was born in Leicester, Massachusetts in 1959. While attending art college, Tabboo! met fellow students including Nan Goldin, Jack Pierson and David Armstrong — a group of friends and collaborators known as the Boston School. Relocating to New York City’s East Village in the early 1980s, Tabboo! performed regularly at the drag-punk Pyramid Club. He designed the club’s humorous, subversive advertisements — as well as record covers for Deee-Lite and Book of Love — with an expressive style that has become his signature.
This fall, Supreme has worked with Tabboo! on two Hooded Sweatshirts, two T-Shirts and a 6-Panel Hat. The Tabboo! group will be available along with five new Fall T-Shirts.
Available in-store NY, Brooklyn, LA, London, Paris and online September 20th.
Available in Japan on September 22nd.
