Supreme x Vans 2013 Spring/Summer Collection

20130304-130013.jpgTo celebrate the coming solstice, Supreme has released a capsule collection in conjunction with Vans, basking in its skate heritage with an all-over floral print – aptly juxtaposing alternative punk culture with 19th century European art. Here, the popular SK8- Hi, Chukka and Era receive covet renditions courtesy of artwork from New Order’s 1983 album release: Power, Corruption & Lies. The album sleeve was designed by English art director Peter Saville who interpolated his idea from French artist Henri Fantin-Latour’s “A Basket of Roses” painting. The Chukka and Era will feature canvas uppers with leather lining and in-soles, and as usual the SK8-Hi will feature a premium suede toe box and canvas leather accents, rounded up with a white vulcanized sole on all profiles. The capsule collection will be available in-store in NY, LA and London and online on March 7, in addition to availability in Japan from March 9 onwards.

England Kit by Peter Saville: A Closer Look

A couple of weeks ago we showed you the new England kit. Now we have a closer look at the Umbro kit by graphic designer, Peter Saville. He adds his signature style to the shirt by adding a new fabric print on the shoulder, inspired by the diversity of England, and is done through his interpretation of the classic St. George’s cross symbol. The traditional red cross is now joined by the blue, green and purple (which symbolizes bespoke tradition in England). In Saville’s own words “ Both the nation and fans themselves are more diverse than before…Football is a language that everyone can relate to and the new England home kit provides the perfect canvas to reflect what England looks like today. The reality of modern England is expressed in this patter as it reclaims the St. George’s cross to positively represent our contemporary society”.
