[UPDATE] March 19, 2018 5:52 p.m. ET: We reached out to D&G for comment and here’s what they said, “Thank you for reaching out regarding this, we do not have any information or comments.”
Take that as you will, but it’s definitely not a “no, this isn’t happening.”
Read our original story below.
Different Supreme leaker accounts posted a rumor that Dolce & Gabbana and Supreme could be collaborating on a collection for FW18. Stefano Gabbana, co-founder of the Italian fashion label, added fuel to the fire by reposting several of the leaker accounts’ Instagram posts, igniting speculation online.
Gabbana re-shared a post from the account @boxlogosupreme, adding a crown and heart emoji. It initially read: “Just signed off on earlier this week, Supreme will be collaborating with Dolce and Gabbana for the Fall/Winter 2018 season. Expect a nice collection with multiple pieces priced at the normal high-end range.”
Earlier, Gabanna re-shared a post from @supreme_leak_news which read: “Rumors have been spreading of a Supreme x Dolce Gabanna collab recently. We are unsure if it’s going to be true but what would you make of this? What sort of items would you like to see?” This time, Gabanna added a trio of love heart emoji.
There are doubts, however, as to the validity of the statements even after Gabbana shared the “news.”
Due to his reputation on social media as a bit of a mischief maker, it’s impossible to say whether this collaboration will happen or if Gabbana is just trying to get a reaction out of his followers. Additionally, rumors have swirled for a while that Supreme is opening a store in Milan, which is probably where this story comes from. It’s likely that some people are speculating that the potential new store would be launched on the back of a collaboration with a Milanese brand.
Supreme has not yet released a statement and it is unlikely that they will until the story is formalized – if there is anything to formalize.
If it is true, this would mark the next step in Supreme’s venture into high fashion, following the brand’s wildly popular Louis Vuitton collection that dominated headlines in 2017.
