Just weeks after reports indicating that Supreme could be releasing a Michael Jackson collection, Supreme confirms it will in fact be launching a special Michael Jackson collection. The cult brand confirmed the collection in an Instagram post.
Rumours first started swirling in April when Instagram user @supreme_leaks_news shared photos of a Supreme hoodie printed with an image of a young Michael Jackson.
Supreme’s official Instagram account finally gave credence to the rumor when it released an image from its Spring/Summer 2017 editorial with Grind magazine.
The image shows a male model wearing a red pants and white, short-sleeved shirt emblazoned with a red screen print of the music legend. Supreme attributed the image to South Korean photographer Hanna Moon.
The New York City retailer, which was founded in 1994, is no stranger to using iconic figures in its designs, as previous collections have paid homage to the likes of Muhammad Ali and Kate Moss. This year the brand has also released high profile collaborations, including Louis Vuitton, Levi’s and Comme Des Garçons.
The brand hasn’t released any further information on the capsule collection or indicated when it will be available.
