Step into Spring on a 90’s tip with the Supreme Spring/Summer 2018 lookbook. This first in the brands existence features an in-house suit, make that green too. The collection filled with an unsurprising variety of fabrics, colours and silhouettes are ingredients of street fashion that supreme have always been able to execute effortlessly throughout its whole career. Athletic urban sportwear, workwear and lavish informal outerwear is displayed throughout the lookbook.
The lavish suit has a satin, jacquard lining with a lightweight wool blend in three colours. The suit being modelled with a pair of beige wallabees by previously collaborated footwear brand Clarks finishes the look on a gangster setting. Supreme having previously designed some of the most sought after tracksuits in streetwear fashion, they deliver another array of appealing hoodies and trackpants. The tonal trackpant we think will be deemed the most popular that being of it’s simplistic design, multiple coloured warm up pants and a lakers yellow two piece tracksuit is a few of our highlight looks from the lookbook. Pieces from a collaboration with Puerto Rican artist and New York Subway Graffiti King, Lee Quinones are seen on a hooded Work jacket, a heavy denim trucker jacket and a pair of matching shorts. An official collaboration with hellraiser is seen on a long, all over graphic jacket and a repeated partnership with New York born and raised Schott NYC is included too. New York’s graffiti scene bleeding into its cultural cousins such as New York hip-hop and the skateboarding culture of New York is a free flowing ecosystem of creativity that has remained central to supreme and its character from its early beginnings.
Reminiscent of 90’s New York street fashion, an era whom supreme grew in an integral part of New York fashion and also best knowledgeable about, the 90’s decade styling and design reference is theme portrayed throughout. The brand released an attractive 90’s sports kangaroo pouched half zip jacket, pink polka dot work jacket, bright blue varsity jacket and our two favourites. A quilted patent vinyl work jacket and Studded leather jacket with supreme’s recognisable arc logo plastered on over the shoulders and a faux fur repeater bomber. All of which, would have been ideal in the wardrobe of Paid In Full’s Ace boogie.
The collection is to release in Supreme stores across its New York, Los Angeles and European locations – February 16th. In Japan, will be made available February 17th. Online releases is available on February 22nd.
