This collaboration seems to be special because of two reasons: the first one is that they offer some perfect designs for spring, the second one is that Supreme has shown us again that it is a brand that can make the craziest collaborations with brands totally out of the Streetwear.
SUPREME X BARBOUR
Supreme was created in New York in 1994. The brand used to create clothes and accessories for skaters. Therefore, Supreme focused its business model on this sport and on their riders. But, in 2015 the Brand changed because of Hypebeast’s beginning.
This collaboration includes designs of coats, bum bags, hats, and caps, in three different colours: black, orange, and a bold leopard print. The collection was only launched online on May 7th.
SUPREME X LAMBORGHINI
Another Supreme’s collaboration that surprised everyone was with the Italian car brand Lamborghini. This cooperation reminds us that the fashion industry has no limits. The designs were launched last April and they consist of three different colours: black, neon orange, and neon green. All of them based on the three most iconic models of the car brand: The Lamborghini Devil, the Lamborghini Winnower, and the Lamborghini Bat.
The collection is made up of jackets and t-shirts with Lamborghini’s logo at the back, hockey t-shirts with the logo at the front, coveralls in the three colours and snowboards.
SUPREME X NORTH FACE
The cooperation between Supreme and North Face RTG has been a surprise too. Last March, the collection for outdoor and extreme weather sports was launched. It is a mix between North Face’s knowledge of making outdoor sports garments and Supreme’s streetwear touch.
The collection consists of the RTG jacket as the main garment with a waistcoat with pockets that can be worn separately. These jackets are available in four colours: red, green, yellow and black. All of them have been made by GORE-TEX. Moreover, in the collection can be found some sweatshirts and fleece t-shirts in many colours, bags, gloves and, even, ski masks.
SUPREME X LOUIS VUITTON
In 2017 Supreme stirred up the fashion industry with its collaboration with the luxury House of Louis Vuitton. In 2016 this cooperation started to be rumoured. In the Louis Vuitton Autumn/Winter 2017 men’s collection the models wore designs that shocked the fashion industry. Moreover, these designs became obsession pieces of the streetwear: bags, scarfs, or shirts, among others. All of these garments with the two most important logos of the fashion industry at that moment, making its pieces popular in the Hypebeast community because of the ‘box-logo’. The collection was a mix of Streetwear and classic designs like raincoats or cardigans.
SUPREME X SWAROVSKI
In 2019, in honour of its 25th anniversary, the streetwear brand decided to launch a new and unexpected collaboration. It was with the jewellery brand Swarovski. The result was the simple Supreme t-shirt in white with the logo on the front, but in this case, the logo was covered by 1.201 Swarovski crystals. Once again, Supreme knew how to mix streetwear with the luxury of other fashion brands, without losing its position in the Hypebeast market.
SUPREME X JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
Also in 2019, Supreme announced a new collection: The Gaultier Supreme. It consisted in a collaboration between the streetwear brand and the French luxury brand Jean Paul Gaultier. In the picture posted on Instagram by Supreme, the name of the collection could be appreciated on the buckle of the belt as well as the style of the collection: a mix of the punk style of Gaultier, who loves the Pop-Art aesthetic, and the characteristic streetwear touch of Supreme.
SUPREME X COMME DE GARÇONS
Supreme doesn’t stop showing us that the union between streetwear and luxury fashion brands is possible. Another example is the collaboration with the Japanese brand Comme de Garçons. The result was the expected and characteristic touch of Supreme, the ‘box-logo’, on t-shirts, hoodies, and sweaters with the iconic CDG typography.
The collection follows a pattern and it is that in most of the garments we can appreciate the asymmetry and the duality. With these two concepts, the collaboration has created a powerful and enigmatic visual effect. Moreover, the designs don’t lose the characteristic Supreme streetwear touch with graffiti prints in some of the garments.
SUPREME X LACOSTE
Collaborations between Supreme and Lacoste are something usual. They did it in 2017, in 2018 and last Autumn in 2019. But the collection launched in 2018 was something special because of its retro inspiration in the 90s.
The brand Lacoste was born in 1933 as the result of the association between the French tennis player René Lacoste and André Gillier. The brand’s designs started to be worn by tennis players, such as the typical Lacoste polo. This polo has been the distinguishing mark of the brand.
The 2018’s collection was inspired by the hip hop trend of the 90s: velvet tracksuits in many colours like blue or pink, or velvet polo shirts, among others. Moreover, both brands have designed many jackets inspired by the typical college uniform of the 90s with Lacoste’s logo and the names of the two brands in the back.
SUPREME X STONE ISLAND
In 2014, Supreme started to collaborate with the brand Stone Island. Since then, both brands have surprised everyone with their collections. In 2019 they did it again: they launched a new collection with technic details and rigid and flat lines inspired by the battlefields.
In the collection, we can appreciate sweatshirts, trousers, and accessories like hats or waistcoats, among others. The garments’ colours have been obtained by the dyeing technique ‘Dust Colour’, which makes the clothes look unique.
In conclusion, Supreme has no limits. It is the most important brand in the streetwear market, but it has known how to collaborate with some of the most luxurious fashion houses like Louis Vuitton or Comme De Garçons. Moreover, Supreme has also cooperated with brands that have nothing in common with the fashion industry. All of these demonstrate that fashion has no limits.
