Supreme kicked off week 1 of their Spring/Summer 2022 collection by dropping a Nike SB Dunk High collection that sold out in seconds. Now, the beloved brand has tapped in with British fashion icon Burberry for an extensive collection for week 2.

 

 

Burberry history

Supreme took the time to write a little bit about Burberry’s high-end history on its website, here’s what they had to say:

 

“Burberry is a British luxury fashion brand established in 1856 by 21-year-old former draper’s apprentice Thomas Burberry in Basingstoke, Hampshire. Rooted in outerwear, Burberry was founded on the principle that clothing should be designed to protect people from the weather.

 

Among Burberry’s early innovations was gabardine — a lightweight yet hard-wearing weatherproof fabric. Inspired by local shepherds’ methods of waterproofing their smocks, Burberry used a unique proofing process which allow natural ventilation but offered protection from the elements. The resulting garments were durable yet breathable — and highly sought after.

 

Throughout the early 20th century, Burberry outfitted explorers and military personnel with outerwear and equipment. Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen and his team became the first people to reach the South Pole with a Burberry gabardine tent and clothing in 1911; followed by British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton in Antarctica and British mountaineer George Mallory on Mount Everest. Closer to home, Burberry developed weatherproof clothing and accessories for the British Armed Forces — including the Tielocken coat and its successor, the trench coat. Over the decades that followed, Burberry expanded its offering of outerwear, ready-to-wear and accessories. Burberry pieces are created to be passed down through generations.

 

Burberry has since cemented itself as a leader in modern luxury. Today, it is regarded as perhaps the most iconic and enduring British brand in history.”

 

 

Supreme x Burberry

It should be no surprise that Supreme has collaborated with one of the most famous brands in British history as owner James Jebbia is of British descent.

 

Once again tapping into high-end fashion (remember the Supreme x Louis Vuitton collaboration from 5 years ago?), Supreme takes the globally known Burberry plaid print as well as the brand’s extensive selection of outerwear and ready-to-wear garments and adds in streetwear staples like hoodies and skate decks.

 

If you are trying to acquire all the pieces, you will have to hit up both Supreme and Burberry locations as some pieces are only exclusive to Burberry stores. Included in the collection are the iconic Trench Coat, Down Puffer Jacket, Denim Trucker Jacket, Leather Track Jacket and Pant, Silk Pajama set, Rugby, Hooded Sweatshirt, Jean, Denim Short, T-Shirt, Crusher, 6-Panel and Skateboard.

 

Reseller will definitely be flocking towards the Box Logo hoodie (black, white, pink) and tee (black, white) from this collection as they will be an easy flip for a couple of hundreds of dollars of profit.

 

 

How to cop

Normally this is the part where I tell you to head over to supremenewyork.com on Thursday, March 10 at 11AM EST to try your luck and sign up for a chance to purchase products in-store at Supreme Brooklyn and SF through register.supremenewyork.com on Tuesday, March 8 at 11AM EST. Supreme’s Manhattan location as well as LA, DSMNY and DSMLA no longer require registration to enter.

 

But in addition to that, you will need to know that Burberry locations in the US, UK and Europe will have exclusive pieces releasing on March 10. Those pieces are the Leather Track Jacket, Leather Track Pant and Silk Pajama set.

 

If you’re in Japan, head over to Supreme shops on Saturday, March 12 to cop and all international customers not listed above will have a chance to purchase pieces in their respective Burberry locations on March 12 as well.

 

The 6-Panel and Crusher will release at a later date for all regions.
