A new Supreme box logo t-shirt has surfaced in preview images from Virgil Abloh‘s “Figures of Speech” exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. The box logo swaps out the solid red background for three blocks of red, black and green, the same color scheme used in the Pan-African flag..
Given the t-shirt is on display in Abloh’s exhibit, one has to assume it’s a collaborative effort with Abloh, who has direct connection to Africa through his Ghanian parents. If the t-shirt is indeed a collaboration, it marks a first time effort between Supreme and Abloh, who’s spoken highly of the brand’s influence on him and his peers.
Images show the t-shirt as a stand-alone item and there’s also a poster on display in the exhibit showing a photograph of the 23-year-old Chicago rapper and producer Chief Keef (real name Keith Farrelle Cozart) wearing the t-shirt, signaling the possibility of a photo t-shirt as opposed to a straight box logo.
The “Figures of Speech” exhibit opens on June 10, 2019 and will run until September 22nd.
