In anticipation of Supreme‘s Fall/Winter 2019 collection, which drops later this month, the streetwear giant has given eager fans another sneak peak at the upcoming drop. The photo, above, doesn’t give away much, but we see a new striped Supreme tee and matching hat paired with navy cargo pants. The hat marks the brand’s first coy teaser of the highly-anticipated accessories line.
Last week, Supreme took to Instagram to announce the imminent arrival of its Fall/Winter 2019 collection alongside a teaser of a denim jacket that appeared to reference iconic British band, The Smiths. Check it out below.
Carrying a distressed denim appearance, the reverse of the jacket features a photograph of an American marine in the Vietnam War above the words “Supreme is Love.” This image is the same as The Smiths’ 1985 studio album, Meat Is Murder, which saw the words scrawled across the helmet.
Those words were adapted from “Make Love Not War” which originally featured on the image when Emile de Antonio used it in the 1968 documentary, In the Year of the Pig.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Supreme has tapped The Smiths for its collections. Back in 2016, the skate brand issued a Spring Summer campaign using Morrissey as its face. The Smiths’ front man, however, wasn’t pleased with how it turned out.
When the SS16 campaign launched, Morrissey said, “I apologize enormously for the enfeebled photograph of me issued this week by Supreme. The shot was taken in October 2015. I considered the photograph to be fit only for a medical encyclopedia and I pleaded with Supreme not to use it.” Read the full statement here.
