Massive Attack is the latest band to join Supreme‘s expanding list of musical muses, with a new collection inspired by the band’s 1998 Mezzanine album artwork slated to drop this week.

Inside the range, the album’s signature beetle motif plants itself atop a selection of soccer jerseys, button-downs and shorts. Across a color wheel of black, light blue and white, the 1990s iconography receives a present-day residency on Supreme’s modern silhouettes. Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja, who created the original insect design, is credited as creative director for the line.

The band confirmed in a tweet that they had no part in the brand’s tribute designs; however, they did give Supreme consent prior to their creation.

“The Supreme Mezzanine range was planned and designed without consultation let alone ‘collaboration’ with Massive Attack,” they wrote. “The band are not stakeholders and have no commercial interest in the project. They gave consent as an act of ‘tribute’ to Nick Knight.”

Previously, Supreme has crafted capsules in collaboration with a multitude of bands and artists, including The Velvet Underground, Marvin Gaye, Public Enemy, The Misfits and My Bloody Valentine, among several others.

The brand’s Massive Attack-inspired collection is scheduled to drop on June 17 on the brand’s webstore.

Elsewhere, Supreme unveiled four new frames for its Spring 2021 sunglasses collection.
