Since first appearing in the SS21 lookbook, the Supreme x Jamie Reid collaboration has certainly been divisive. Treading on the more, umm, political side of Supreme’s vision, the Jamie Reid collection will definitely get you noticed. Over the past few months, the conversation around the drop has gone relatively quiet. Despite many Supreme fans being excited over the Air Max 96 collab this week, the Jamie Reid drop is a future classic.
Jamie Reid is a British artist and activist whose work is instantly recognisable around the world. Born and raised in South London, Reid made a name for himself with his ransom-style aesthetic during the 1970s and 1980s. His art has shined a light on everything from women’s rights movements to anti-apartheid rallies, with his political consciousness being visible in all his work. Reid famously co-founded Suburban Press in 1970 and even designed multiple album covers for punk legends the Sex Pistols.
For his collaboration with Supreme, Reid has gone back to the punk days to create some bold pieces. Tops, Shirts and Hooded Sweatshirts are emblazoned with phrases like “Fuck All” in a variety of colours. Leading the collection is a Letterman Jacket complete with “It’s All Bollocks” lettering on the back. Each piece will be offered in multiple colours and most definitely turn some heads.
