For Supreme‘s continuing Spring/Summer 2019 collaborative releases, the New York-based brand has teamed up with French designer Jean Paul Gaultier. The news was unveiled last week with a small preview, and today you can have a look at the whole collection, and the surprises are many.
Jean Paul Gaultier’s career started in 1970s, debuting his first collection in 1976. He became known in the fashion industry as the “enfant terrible” – French for “unruly child” – for his unique usage of materials, skill and sharp tailoring.
During his career, Gaultier created costumes for huge names like Madonna during her Blond Ambition tour, and has become known for his unique and unconventional creations. This important event marked his career in a very positive way.
And today for the look-book, Supreme has tapped Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon to model the stand-out pieces from the range. She is wearing printed pants with the message “Fuck Racism”, an homage to Gaultier’s original “Fight Racism” collection from the ’90s.
For Spring/Summer 2019, Supreme and Jean Paul Gaultier have collaborated on a 17-piece collection. The range includes a Double Breasted Blazer, Cargo Suit Pant, Cargo Suit Vest, Double Breasted Plaid Faux Fur Coat, Reversible Backpack MA-1, Printed Trucker Jacket, Rayon Shirt, Printed Jean, Hooded Sweatshirt, Sweatpant, T-shirt and Schott® Leather Holster.
As mentioned before, one of the surprises is the bold accessories that complete the collaboration like belts and sunglasses and two pairs of floral Vans – the Chukka Pro and Era Pro. Last but not least, the exclusive Le Male fragrance in its iconic torso-shaped bottle will release as a part of the Jean Paul Gaultier collaboration.
Look for the collection release on April 11 online and in stores in NY, Brooklyn, LA, London and Paris. Supreme’s Japanese retail stores will release the collaboration on April 13. Check out the Spring/Summer Collection here below.
