Ever since its opening in April of 1994, a New York institution for 15 years, Supreme has not only been the embodiment of New York’s downtown culture while also playing an integral part in its constant regeneration, but it has created a brand known for: quality, style and authenticity. As a major influence in New York’s constant regeneration, it too has regenerated from a once skate/urban-centric look, to now a more polished and mature outlook. And for Fall/Winter 2009-2010, Supreme has once again metamorphosed into a brand that defies all odds and perceptions.
This season’s collection saw well over 30 different pieces (and not including the special collaboration with American classics like Hanes, Disney, and Buck Ranger). Although there was no particular inspiration behind this collection, it can be safely declared that this was a collection designed for the masses. Despite the fact that Supreme has its roots and culture within the skate/urban landscape of New York, the brand continues to convey its maturity and appreciation for design with pieces such as their wool pea coat and their cold weather bomber made from premium leather. With that said, with pieces such as the waterproof Rip Stop Parka and their ever famous Varsity jackets, they will always ensure that they never forget where they came from. The result is a collection that aims to appease both the suit wearing fashionistos in Yorkville, to skateboarders on the streets of Queen West.
The most intriguing pieces from this season:
- Hands-down their mid suede desert boot in a variety of hues. They can be paired with both a suit or some dark denim, and look equally stunning for both looks.
- Their entire outerwear collection, as it runs the gamut of different looks and cuts. From the Barbour inspired waxed cotton jacket, the pea coat and the technical layer jacket, Supreme’s mission is to keep you warm this season.
- Their button-ups. They are getting better and better every year as the cut of the shirts are improving with time.
- Of course, their staple crew neck sweaters, hoodies and accessories. They are all just Supreme classics.
