Supreme Collaborates With Blade and Gucci Mane for Its 2016 Fall T-Shirt Collection
“King of Graffiti” and Guwop.
Having just recently honored the late artist Dash Snow in a capsule range of decks and tees, Supreme pays tribute to yet another influential New York City figure in Blade. The Bronx native is widely regarded as one of the most influential graffiti writers of all time, whose penchant for painting subway trains (over 5,000 in total) earned him the title “King of Graffiti” in the early ’80s. Rather than appropriating known imagery or adhering to any particular style or trends, Blade employed an imaginative approach to his many works, playing with perspective, abstraction and geometry. For the fall Supreme has worked with the artist on a hooded sweatshirt, long-sleeve and short-sleeve T-shirts, skateboard decks, and a pin, all of which will be available alongside five new graphic tees, including one with Gucci Mane. Check out the full collaboration above and purchase any pieces from Supreme’s web store and New York, Los Angeles, London and Paris locations starting October 6. Stores in Japan will release the range on October 8.
