Supreme 每一季總不乏出挑話題設計,剛剛發佈的 2017 春夏系列中,採用美國前總統 Barack Obama 肖像作為印花的數款單品便迅速引起了關注和討論。而這一設計背後又藏有什麼故事呢?經常在 Instagram 上分享和普及各種 Supreme 信息的 @supreme_copies 早前就揭開了靈感來源。2009 年 Obama 訪問非洲國家迦納,當地人民為表示歡迎,便將這位時任總統的肖像圖案印在名為「Kangas」的傳統織物之上,並結合了不同色彩、印花以及包括意為「歡迎」的「Akwaaba」字樣。隨後這一設計還「進軍」美國,尤其在紐約 Harlem 颳起一陣流行,演員 Victoria Rowells 在同一年更身穿一條 Obama 印花的「Kangas」禮裙亮相 Emmy Awards 紅毯。由此可見 Supreme 今季從「Kangas」汲取靈感,延續其傳統設計,將「Akwaaba」替換為「Supreme」,呈現於人氣單品 Anorak、襯衫和運動褲之上,從中亦流露著些許政治意味。

With the preview and lookbook released today, I figure it’s time to cover at least one piece revealed today- or should I say piece(s). We arrive at perhaps the most interesting collection of the entire season, the ‘Obama,’ series (which consist of a pair of pants as well). This isn’t the first time Supreme has payed homage to Obama with a graphic (although many aren’t aware), and in this day and age the collection only makes sense. We date back to 2009, Obamas first year in office. The then new President visits the African country of Ghana. To commemorate the visit, locals produced many ‘Kangas,’ a traditionally large piece of textile, riddled with vibrant patterns and political graphics, made to be worn (exemplified bottom right.) What has since been replaced with ‘Supreme,’ once said ‘Akwaaba,’ – meaning ‘Welcome.’ At the time, dresses and button-downs alike were made of the print, making their way into the US and specifically Harlem (exemplified bottom left). Actress Victoria Rowells memorably wore a dress of the textile the same year to the Emmy Awards. Interesting to see Supreme with a more recent reference, as well as take their own hand at the pattern with one of their more recently popular articles, the Anorak.
