Jacket Required to host Supreme exhibition
At its January edition, London menswear trade show Jacket Required will exhibit a collection of archive Supreme pieces which will be subsequently sold by The Idle Man in February.
The private collection is owned by British DJ and writer Ross Wilson, who has one of the biggest Supreme archives worldwide. Stretching back to the cult brand’s origins in 1994, the collection includes t-shirts, sweatshirts shoes, skateboards, jackets, hats, accessories and stickers.
Popular products such as the brand’s ‘classic logo’ tee, and emblematic pieces like 5 Boroughs coach jacket are part of the collection, as well as several collaborations with other brands.
“Nowadays, Supreme is a global brand with millions of devoted fans worldwide, many of whom were either too young or not even born when I first set foot in that little single-door independent skate shop back in 1994. I feel like it’s time to pass on all those historical products to the new generation of Supreme devotees who may not have been able to access them before,” explains Ross Wilson in an interview with The Idle Man.
A selection of his favourite pieces will go on display at Jacket Required on 24-25 January at the Old Truman Bewery in London, with the collection going on sale on The Idle Man on 1 February.
