Brand: Supreme x Yohji Yamamoto

Season: FW20

Key Pieces: It's a toss up between the leather work jackets or the floral graphic knit sweater in slide #5.

Release Date: September 17 (EU and USA), September 19 (Japan).

Buy: Supreme

Editor’s Notes: Another day, another collaboration — but finally, one with some promise! The new surprise drop from Supreme features collaborations with Peter Saville, Sancheeto, Yuuka Asakura, and esteemed Japanese designer, Yohji Yamamoto. Obviously this line-up is huge, but as the New York streetwear bastion has been known to knock high-end fashion collabs out of the park, this should follow in the footsteps of its past collections with Jean-Paul Gaultier and Louis Vuitton (FW17).

Within the forthcoming release, you'll find some sure-fire cops such as premium white puffer jackets, classic parkas with graffiti-like details, a floral sweater (a piece of premium Grailed resell estate) shirts, hoodies, crewnecks, T-shirts with original Yamamoto sketches, and a beanie.

However, the first thing that springs to mind when Yamamoto is mentioned is usually his signature loose and black tailoring, along with his avant-garde aesthetics, and his Y-3 sub-line. Supreme have succeeded in finding an organic connection to Yamomoto's reputation as a master tailor with a new addition to Supreme's suiting line: An all-black wool suit, which — with an arresting graphic patch on the back — looks like it'll be eaten up by high-fashion aficionados and Supreme fans alike.

Elsewhere, the collection includes leather outerwear, and even though it is just a red/black leather jacket with Supreme branding and a YY signature (aka not the most creative collaborative design) these outerwear pieces certainly stand out thanks to the slick design of the graphics on the back.

We would have loved to have seen some of Yamamoto's chilling archival graphics from FW91 make an appearance, as seen below, but perhaps we'll hold out for another collaboration.
