After last week’s Nike release, this week sees Supreme drop another much-hyped collaboration. This latest collection has the New York-based brand working with Akira, the cult Japanese manga series that ran from 1982 to 1990. Unsurprisingly, London’s Supreme fans turned out in force for this drop, with the Japanese graphics being particularly popular.
The most in-demand pieces from the drop included the soccer shirt, the hooded sweatshirt, and the T-shirts — all of which were part of the Akira collaboration and featured original artwork from the series and film’s creator Katsuhiro Otomo. Aside from apparel, Supreme’s London fans also went for the “Syringe” and “Neo-Tokyo” skate decks that released as part of the Akira collection.
As always, we went down to the launch to check out which pieces were the most popular, and how London shoppers were styling this week’s drop. For more from the collaboration, check out the short video that was released by Supreme and Akira earlier this week.
