Retro fever is on full display in the upcoming Supreme and Nike fall drop. Announced on Monday, the collection will feature a wide array of colorful outerwear staples popular in the streetwear scene.
Among the items available are a reversible anorak and pants, both featuring a transparent nylon ripstop and a nylon taslan reverse side. Also available are the vintage-style cotton-fleece crewnecks and sweat shorts, as well as the Dri-FIT®️ poly soccer jersey, all outfitted with a jewel appliqué Nike logo for good measure.
The product shots released on the Supreme website on Monday give a good taste of what’s to come. The pieces, featured in photos both dressed up with cargo pants and jewelry, and dressed down with slippers and sweatpants, prove just how versatile the collection is, and how timely the staple pieces are as we transition to fall.
Although no sneakers will be released with this collection, sneakerheads everywhere are still being given something to satiate their hype fantasies, as Louis Vuitton announced last week that they have signed their first skateboarder. Jamaican-born celebrity skater Lucien Clarke will collaborate with Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton to release the brand’s first-ever skateboarding shoe. Although the marriage of hype and luxury is not a new concept, this is arguably one of luxury fashion’s first forays into the skateboarding world.
In the meantime, the attention stays on Supreme in the days leading to the fall drop. As Supreme fans everywhere gear up for the highly-anticipated release this Thursday, we’ll be hitting the resale sites to see just how much they go for the second time around. The collection will be available on September 3rd, and available in Japan on September 5th.
