With another week we have yet another installment of our product drops series. Leading the list is the release of Supreme‘s newest Spring/Summer 2020 offerings, along with Palace‘s collaboration with Jean Charles de Castelbajac.
Week 17 from Supreme returns to its major collaboration series, tapping the estate of the late Leigh Bowery, referencing Bowery’s true club kid at heart reputation. The special range is comprised of two hooded sweatshirts, a button-up shirt and one T-shirt with artwork of Bowery courtesy of Jim Krewson, Fergus Greer and Michael Costiff with a portion of proceeds going to benefit Visual AIDS, a New York City-based arts organization that assists artists living with HIV/AIDS, and engages with contemporary HIV issues through the arts.

GALLERY DEPT. Stop Being Racist T-Shirt
Founded by GALLERY DEPT. founder/creative director Josué Thomas, the platform and initiative was born out of a call to action, a sign of resistance against personal experiences as well as in opposition to systemic racism. Supporting and educating disenfranchised and underprivileged youth, SBR intends to impact lives and insightfully offer an alternative vision that can help youth prevail through strained racial tension and oppression
Available in two colors, the T-shirts are centered around the bold logo of STOP BEING RACIST. The simple yet important motif is screen printed on the front of the base tops which have been washed at GALLERY DEPT. shop in Los Angeles, CA for a vintage feel and look.

Coming together once again, the special range builds on JCC’s signature poetic writings and artistic illustrations in rainbow hues. “For the second chapter of Palace and JCC, I have joined the energies of these elements (signs and symbols) to design a strong, pop and powerful capsule for the urban life,” says Jean Charles de Castelbajac.
Throughout the upcoming collaboration, the duo explores the mysterious meanings of signs and symbol with the playfulness and cheerful nature of Pop Art. Leading the range is a set of classic Tri-Ferg hoodies marked with JCC scrawlings, along with a button-up shirt and knit crewneck sweater that express an array of evocative illustrations. The T-shirts available in red, green, blue, yellow, grey and white, continue both the Tri-Ferg decoration and playful illustrations.
