A History Of Supreme Poster Campaigns

20120216-085521.jpg

For some time now Supreme, the New York skate brand, plasters New York and other cities housing their flagship stores (Tokyo, Los Angeles, London) with posters announcing their soon to arrive new collection of the season and at the same time their latest collaborative effort.

We reported this morning about their Spring 2012 Campaign featuring Kate Moss. The top model has a special standing with Supreme fans, as one of the most iconic tees to ever come from the brand features Moss with the Supreme box logo on top of her panties. To date, that is one of the hardest Supreme t-shirts to get your hands on.

With the excitement around the new campaign and hopefully product that will come along the way in the next weeks, we thought it might be interesting to take a look at the past poster ad campaigns by the brand, featuring Lou Reed (2009), Lady Gaga (2011), Mike Tyson (2007), Dipset (2006), Raekwon & Ghostface & Elmo (2005) and Kermit The Frog (2008). They have kept us busy from 2006 – 2012.

Inked Magazine: A Day With Zombie Boy

Inked Magazine releases a behind-the-scenes video featuring Rick Genest, more commonly referred to as Zombie Boy. We’ve seen him most recently in Lady Gaga’s Born This Way video, while he originally burst onto the scene thanks to being cast as essentially the face of fashion house Mugler. Having a background teaming up with contemporary carnivals doing work as a clown, fire play and flesh pulling techniques, it’s safe to say that he’s one-of-a-kind. In the video, he gives us some insight about what it’s like to be him, and the projects he’s been up to lately, something we don’t get to see often on camera. The video is directed by Michael Hurley and will be released in November.

Zombie Boy Rick Genest x DermaBlend

This is crazy Rick Genest aka Zombie Boy as you’ve never seen him before….without his tats!

The tattooed model is unrecognisable in the new DermaBlend advert in which he promotes the brands concealer and make-up remover. The Go Beyond the Cover video begins with question: How do you judge a book? and shows Zombie Boy – real name Rick Genest – sitting on a stool with flawless skin. The 25-year-old – who shot to fame after starring in Gaga’s music video for Born This Way – then begins to wipe a cloth across his chest, and for those who aren’t familiar with his normal look will be quite surprised.

The Canadian model is covered in skeletal tattoos that make his body resemble a decomposing corpse, and all is revealed as he begins to wipe away the DermaBlend concealer with the brand’s make-up remover. The bilingual star modelled Thierry Mugler’s latest collection at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year, but before his new found fame he was living on the streets of Montreal doing window cleaning and performing as a circus freak to find the funds for his next tattoo.
Genest is entirely tattooed from the waist up but plans to extend the body art down his legs too, which to some people may be a shock but it’s undeniable that his odd love of tattoos seems to have done him a favour so far – and of course if he ever gets fed up of them all he has to do is reach for a bottle of DermaBlend.

Rick Genest Chasing a World Record

If you dont know who Rick Genest is read this first

Rick Genest, also known as Zombie boy wants to make the title official by chasing a Guiness World record…or two. Check out the New York Times Interview with him explaining why its so important to him.

“I wanted to leave no doubt. After this particular session, which lasted six hours, I was leaving for Milan to get checked by Guinness World Records, and I was going to make sure that nothing was going to come between me and the records for the most tattooed bones and most tattooed insects. I was awarded two medals, so the trip was successful. So far, I’ve spent 300 hours, give or take, to look like the living dead. I hope to be done by the fall or winter. In the meantime, I’m busy working. The day this photo was taken, I had three interviews set up, and I was preparing for a tattoo show. I perform in Lucifer’s Blasphemous Mad Macabre Torture Carnival all over Canada, and I model for Thierry Mugler, which is where Lady Gaga found me for her ‘‘Born This Way’’ video. Why did I decide to embark on this project? I guess I didn’t really think it over. Kids and tattoos, you know.”
