Coming off the back of a Rap-A-Lot Records and Dr. Martens collaboration, Supreme has finally unveiled its latest COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT project for the 2017 spring/summer season. The collection takes inspiration from Stephen J Shanabrook‘s set of ads for COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT’s 2010 spring/summer campaign, where the conceptual artist borrowed from his own collection of work titled Paper Surgery.
We are presented with a comprehensive lineup that consists of a lightweight polyurethane-coated fishtail parka, cotton gabardine suit, rayon shirt, hooded sweatshirt, tees, coin pouches, wallets and finally, a Nike Air Force 1 Low. The Nike sneaker comes as a surprise when previous collections with the Japanese label yielded collaborative Vans and Timberland products. However, the Air Force 1 Low offering retains the minimal aesthetic of the classic model but slathers it with a bold print along the sides, as well as the sole. Moreover, the sneaker will see a later release date in May rather than dropping alongside the apparel.
The collection will be available at Supreme’s New York, Los Angeles, London, and Paris locations, as well as its online store for these regions on April 13.
