Fresh off the back of its latest VF Corp-certified collaboration with Timberland, Supreme is once again making headlines thanks to its ever-enduring commitment to being the dominant force of creative partnerships.
Reddit forums and Instagram pages have been alight with speculation over the past weeks, with rumors circulating about a Fall/Winter 2021 collection from Supreme and Junya Watanabe. While it seemed clear the drop would definitely be arriving, no one quite expected it to be hitting shelves so soon.
For those who aren't familiar with the Japanese designer, Junya Watanabe began his journey into the industry through his attendance at Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo and subsequent patternmaking apprenticeship at COMME des GARÇONS shortly after graduating in 1984.
Watanabe would go on to debut his eponymous collection in 1992.
Junya has made a name for himself throughout his career with an innovative approach to construction and silhouette, cited heavily for his use of modern, technical materials.
Through his global renown, he has become somewhat of a cult icon, a status reinvigorated thanks to Kanye West's recent track titled "Junya."
For the collaborative collection, Supreme looks to the extensive Junya Watanabe COMME des GARÇONS MAN’s archives, inspiring a head-to-toe range that blends the iconic DNA of both brands.
The collection consists of a Schott® leather peacoat, GORE-TEX denim parka and matching pants, patchwork puffer jackets, and cargo pants alongside a selection of streetwear essentials like tees and beanies.
You know the drill. Supreme x Junya Watanabe COMME des GARÇONS MAN lands this Thursday in-store and on Supreme's website.
