Of course, they’re too valuable and too easily scratchable for anyone to actually ride them, and the countercultural cred involved isn’t what it was 20 years ago…but we’re still impressed Supreme managed to pull it off. We believe this qualifies as outside the box.
If any street fights break out between brands after Fashion Week—and it’s been known to happen—Supreme will definitely have an edge.
Somehow—and really, the street fight hypothesis is the most likely—these nunchucks found their way into the streetwear brand’s latest Spring/Summer preview. And by all apprearances, they've been practicing. We’re not sure whether to read this as a Warriors reference or a result of Lou Reed’s ongoing penchant for Kung Fu, but we’re still glad to see a label stretching themselves.
And we always thought Gilded Age would make one hell of a crossbow.
