A New Book Explains Supreme’s Visual References

Looking at the inspiration behind iconic pieces.

By //Fashion

One of the standout features of Supreme collections is the cultural references throughout the collection. For Spring/Summer 2018, for example, the New York label had “Alphabet” pieces similar to work by Erté as well as nods to artists Richard Estes, Lee Quinones and Daniel Johnston in its collection.

These visual references will now be the subject of a new book, compiled by the brains behind the @supremecopies Instagram. The 120-page book follows the same formula as the Instagram account, with Supreme pieces pictured alongside the inspirations and reference points for pieces from throughout the brand’s archive. Supreme Copies: The Book is available from Amazon now.

In other Supreme news, the brand recently gave £50,000 GBP to Southbank Skate Park.
