Supreme drop collaboration with M.C Escher
The next collaboration for Supreme is with Maurits Cornelis Escher, also known as M.C. Escher. Born in the city of Leeuwarden, Netherlands, Escher’s work found an audience of admirers with his eccentric artwork that tapped mathematical elements of hyperbolic geometry, tessellations, symmetry, impossible object optical illusions and more.

The collaborative collection includes M.C. Escher’s designs in a wide range of apparel including a lightweight trench coat, baseball jersey, hoodie, long- and short-sleeved tees, shorts, and a cap. The collection has already hit the stores of Supreme NY, LA, London, Paris and online, while Japanese Supreme stores received the collection on May 6.
