Born in Tokyo in 1940, Nobuyoshi Araki started his career as a commercial photographer before turning to creative energies to a diary-like documentation of subjects that range from everyday life to Japan's underground sex industry. In addition to traditional themes, his exploration of erotica leans heavily on Kinbaku, the Japanese art of bondage. For Fall/Winter 2016, Supreme has teamed up with Araki on a Hooded Sweatshirt, Long Sleeve T-Shirt, Short Sleeve T-Shirt and a Zine featuring original photography.
The collaboration drops this Thursday, November 3rd, in-store at NY, LA, London and Paris, as well as online at supremenewyork.com. A launch in Japan follows on November 5th.
