Supreme has once again enjoyed a massive season filled with blockbuster collaborations, wacky accessories, and most importantly some incredible garments that are wearable year round and in any outfit. This week saw the climax of the SS21 season, with week 17 marking the finale to the comprehensive season comprising hundreds of products. Join us on a review of the week, which proved to be the biggest of them all.
BLOCKING OUT THE HATERS: SUNGLASSES COLLECTION
Handmade in Italy, Supreme’s SS21 sunglasses collection is made up of four styles – “Goldtop”, “Brooks”, “Downtown” and “Vega” – all of which featuring anti-reflective coatings and eclectic color options. As the name suggests, Goldtop arrived with a branded metallic gold plate across the top of the frame, while the Brooks arrived as a metal-framed, sporty silhouette. Downtown and Vega came as larger plastic frames with tortoise color options and dark lenses.
ANOTHER SKATE-READY VANS COLLAB
Once again collaborating with long-term partner Vans, two silhouettes were released in three different color options: red, blue and black, all of which come with an all over “S” monogram. The Skate Grosso, coming as a high-top skate staple, employs lush suede paneling over the patterned canvas, while the Skate Era is entirely covered in said repeat print canvas. This is the latest addition to a prospering collaborative partnership spanning nearly 25 years – we can’t wait to see Supreme and Vans come together again and again in the coming years.
GET LOST LIKE DJ KHALED ON THE $11,000 JET SKI
Being the highlight accessory of the whole season is no small feat, especially so when the collection includes a chunky gold championship ring, Smeg mini fridge and Wheaties cereal. Supreme is renowned for its crazy accessories, and this week stands out – the $11,000 jet ski in collaboration with Sea-Doo is decked out with a 90 horsepower engine, 50-watt sound system and adorned with a mish-mash of Supreme stickers. This joins Supreme’s “WTF” hall of fame alongside pit bikes, slot machines and the infamous brick.

BUG YOUR MATES BY WEARING THE MASSIVE ATTACK CAPSULE
Beetle-adorned button downs, soccer jerseys and shorts make up an unofficial collection modelled after the iconic 90’s band “Massive Attack” and their album “Mezzanine”. While we’ve seen Supreme produce official collabs with the likes of Public Enemy, Misfits and Marvin Gaye, Massive Attack wrote on Twitter “The Supreme ‘Mezzanine’ range was planned and designed without consultation let alone ‘collaboration’ with Massive Attack. The band are not stakeholders and have no commercial interest in the project. They gave consent as an act of ‘tribute’ to Nick Knight.”
THE BEST OF THE REST
The week also included a number of versatile pieces from the “Five Boroughs” coaches jacket and incredibly timely sweatshorts and water shorts, to paisley bucket hats and out staff pick of the week – the patched denim painter pant.
