Supremely Stone Island – Stone Island x Supreme

Screen Shot 2014-09-29 at 20.20.02Back in 1994 Supreme opened its doors on Lafayette Street in downtown Manhattan and became the home of New York City skate culture. At its core was the gang of rebellious young New York skaters and artists who became the store’s staff, crew and customers.

Supreme grew to be the embodiment of the downtown culture, playing an integral part in its constant regeneration. Skaters, punks, hip-hop heads – the young counter culture at large – all gravitated towards Supreme.While it grew into a downtown institution, Supreme established itself as a brand known for its quality, style and authenticity.

Over its twenty years history, Supreme has worked with some of our generation’s most groundbreaking designers, artists, photographers and musicians – all who have helped continue to define its unique identity and attitude.

This season, Supreme adds to its illustrious roster the unique and highly creative Italian casual wear brand Stone Island. The pieces the brands have collaborated on are the Raso Gommato Cover Nero Jacket, an updated version of a Stone Island archive piece of ‘988, carrying the signature removable eye mask on the stow away hood. It is made in the iconic Stone Island Raso Gommato, a garment dyed, wind and water-resistant cotton satin bonded to a polyurethane coating, featuring a removable garment dyed down liner. Also within the range are a hooded sweatshirt, crewneck sweatshirt and sweatpant feature a garment dyed cotton fleece carrying the Supreme print.

All items have been made by Stone Island for Supreme and the camp cap is made by Supreme in Raso Gommato, keeping it in the family, so to say.
