Alongside a collaboration with Levi's, Supreme will also drop a joint venture with the Bronx graffiti artist Blade tomorrow. The acclaimed graffiti artist got his start painting New York City subway trains in 1972 at the age of 15, and by the '80s he would come to be known as the "King of Graffiti," having painted over 5,000 trains in total. He eschewed trends and the appropriation of known imagery, and would go on to found the famed graffiti crew, The Crazy 5. For Fall/Winter 2016, Blade teams up with Supreme on a Hooded Sweatshirt, Long Sleeve T-Shirt, Short Sleeve T-Shirt, Skateboard Deck and Pin. Those items are joined by five new graphic tees, including the return of the "Sumo" motif, appearing on a pullover hoodie from earlier in the season, and another emblazoned with Gucci Mane's likeness.
The goods drop tomorrow, October 6, at Supreme's NY, LA, London and Paris stores, as well as online at supremenewyork.com.
Availability in Japan follows on October 8.
