Supreme has tapped the services of British artist Neville Brody for a number of cut-and-sewn apparel pieces in the New York brand’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Armed with a graphic arts degree from the London College of Printing, Brody first received recognition through his record cover artwork and his involvement in the British independent music scene in the early 1980s. His reputation was later established through his magazine work, highlighted by his tenure as the art director of The Face, for which he honed a distinctive typographical style that went on to influence designers worldwide. That sensibility is clearly seen in his contribution to Supreme’s upcoming apparel range, seen on a stellar fishtail parka adorned with stylized “Riot” text. It’s a design that’s repeated on a simple graphic tee, all-over pocket tee and 6-panel cap, while an accompanying Slam tee and crusher hat are adorned with Brody’s original artwork and typography. The capsule is rounded out by the Arrested Hooded Shirt, available in four individual colors. Many of the pieces will be in stock at Supreme stores in New York, L.A. and London when the shop re-opens this Thursday.
