Season after season, you can count on Supreme for covetable streetwear, logo-adorned accessories—and of course, collaborations on collaborations. For each collection, the streetwear juggernaut has more than a handful of partnerships on deck: Nike, Vans, Timberland, and The North Face, to name a few. Time and time again, these are the labels that Supreme turns to. But this season’s collaboration with The North Face feels a little bit different than the others—and is perhaps a sign of things to come.
First things first: this collaboration is a big one. The scope of Supreme’s The North Face collaborations scales up and down over the years, but you can reliably count on a jacket, a secondary fashion item, possibly a third, and a handful of accessories ranging from headwear to bags. This season is—how do we put this?—way heavier. It includes a heavy coat, a lighter jacket, a vest, some pants, a sweatshirt, and a T-shirt—and that’s just on the clothing front. The collection is rounded out by a duffle bag, tote bag, blanket, and a pair of mules. Throw in the fact that most of the wares come in three colorways, and you’ve got a collection that clocks in at a whopping 26 items. Design-wise, it’s of course a pitch-perfect Supreme collaboration: a bold print at the center, clever logo placements, and enough product styles so that there is something for every type of shopper. (Coming on the heels of TNF’s white-hot Gucci collab doesn’t hurt, either.)
