Update: A late add for week 12 includes Supreme x Champion five-panel hats, plus a restock of beanies and mechanix gloves.
Week 12 will also include a collection of sunglasses, which include five silhouettes: The Royce, Eclipse, Palladium, Comet and Alton. All frame are handmade in Italy featuring lenses with anti-reflective coating.
Original story below.
Supreme‘s week 12 spring 2017 drop has been revealed, and in sync with Donald Trump firing the FBI director, the Obama-themed merchandise arrives to remind us of simpler times when everyday didn’t feel like an Edvard Much “Scream” painting. If you want some backdrop on the Obama print, you can find it here. Basically, it has roots in Obama’s visit to Ghana, back in 2009.
What are this week’s hottest items? Obviously, all the Obama merch, but especially the anorak. That’s been the hot silhouette since Supreme and Stone Island cooked that up in a 2015 collabo. That said, every Obama piece is going to fly out of the store. Color-wise, both are great, but the maroon shade is clearly the move.
The other item receiving a lot of mentions is the terry logo hand towel in black, red and white. Its dimensions are 46.5 by 14 inches so think of it more as a long face towel as opposed to something you could bring to the beach.
The long-sleeve “Supreme Truth” t-shirt hasn’t been mentioned much on social media, but that is clearly the next best item after the Obama merch. It’s a cool design that has timeless appeal since it’s a known fact that the truth never expires. (We see how you paired the timing of that item with Obama, Supreme.)
Other items of interest? The pinstripe baseball jerseys in four colors are cute if you enjoy wearing your love for Surpreme front and center, though the fact that they’re 100 percent poly is a turn off.
There is of course a Supreme collaboration with Levi’s included in week 12, but color us unmoved by it.
These items drop on May 11th at the Los Angeles, New York, Paris and London stores at 11:00 local time and online at 11:00 AM EST. Everything happens at Supreme’s Japan stores two days later on May 13th.
Sidenote: According to rumors, there will soon be a second New York store, located in Brooklyn. Not in time for this drop though.
