Tomorrow, November 14, Supreme will be releasing a limited-edition collaborative capsule together with the estate of Chinese-American artist, Martin Wong. Wong is credited for uniquely blending social realism with visionary art, further stretching our awareness of his subjects.

Martin Wong is also known for having designed sets, props, and flyers for radical queer performance art troupes, The Cockettes and Angels of Light. Born and raised in San Francisco, he moved to New York City in 1978. While there, Wong documented the vibrancy and desolation mid-80s Loisaida life. He then moved back to San Francisco in 1994 after learning that he tested HIV positive. During his final days, he painted works depicting the Chinatown of his youth, before passing away from AIDS-related complications in 1999 at the age of 53.

Well suited to Supreme’s slightly ostentatious representations of reality, the Martin Wong collection consists of a Schott NYC leather varsity jacket, rayon shirts, a long-sleeved top, a hooded sweatshirt, T-shirts, a beanie, and two skateboards. Select items will be available beginning November 14 in Supreme stores worldwide, and online at supremenewyork.com.
