Supreme has never shied away from controversy, so it's not surprising that the brand's newest collaboration features the creative output of Andres Serrano, the NYC artist most famous for a piece of work known as Piss Christ: a photo of a plastic crucifix submerged in the artist's urine. In the late '80s, the incendiary reaction to the piece included death threats and a congressional debate on US public arts funding. Piss Christ, along with two other pieces from Serrano -- Madonna & Child II and Blood and Semen II -- are featured on various apparel pieces: two Hooded Sweatshirts, Sweatpants and two graphic T-Shirts. Additionally, the capsule also includes a trio of classic Vans silhouettes: the Sk8-Hi, Chukka and Old Skool, all featuring Blood and Semen II.
The collection launches this Thursday, September 21, at Supreme's NY, LA, London and Paris stores, as well as online at supremenewyork.com. Availability in Japan follows on Saturday, September 23rd.
