Last month the Spring/Summer Collection of Supreme x The North Face dropped a new collection of sick new gear. The “Steep Tech Jackets” include a bright color blocking technology allowing the consumer to be the topic of discussion. However, when first seeing the image of the jackets, I couldn’t help but think immediately to something that was a trend throughout the 90s in hip-hop and fashion.
Tommy Hilfiger has been a brand to create trends and controversies across boards. However, the bright colors, though not as primary is very reminiscent of this past trend that is about 15 to 20 years old. There are clear differences, including the black lines separating the colors, the thicker and more expensive material, as well as all of the new bells and whistles The North Face includes in all of their high performance gear. But the Tommy jacket could have been a bit of inspiration to the duo when creating their own version. (Possibly the li’l cousin of Tommy?)
Moving on, tomorrow morning in store at Supreme’s NYC, L.A., London and Paris locations and online, the brand duo is set to drop new items in the collection including the “Steep Tech Crewneck,” short sleeve t-shirts and 6-panel hats that match the jacket seen above, hoodies, and pants. These items are set to coordinate with the vivid colors seen above.
Because this is not Supreme x The North Face’s first rodeo it is nice to see the difference they bring to every season’s style. This collection will be the 16th collaboration since they started in 2007 and are only rising in popularity. Though Supreme does not only team up with The North Face, their collections seem to be the most widely known and accepted among their skateboarding fans as well as their fashion savvy ones. This dynamic duo doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon.
If you haven’t copped already, don’t sleep on tomorrows pick ups!
