Two months ago, Supreme and The North Face dropped off their Spring/Summer 2021 “Studded” collection. Now, the duo is ready to launch a second collection for the season. This time around, Supreme has elected to work with Summit Series pieces as well as more loungewear – sweats and crewnecks.

 

 

The backbone of this collection is undoubtedly the Summit Series Outer Tape Seam Shell Jacket and matching Mountain Pants. There’s also a Coaches Jacket and Camp Cap offered in the same design. What’s interesting about these pieces is that they draw from old school GORE-TEX jackets that had the seams taped up in this manner, but on the inside of the shell. All of these pieces are made with water resistant nylon so you don’t have to worry about the elements too much. Three colors will be offered: black, olive, pink.

 

To balance out the technical wears, Supreme and TNF have crafted a range of pigment printed Crewnecks, Sweatpants and T-shirts. Each pigment printed cotton piece comes with an embroidered logo and offers the ultimate cozy boy vibes. Five colors will be available to customers: black, olive, red, blue and pink.

 

Like all Supreme x TNF collaborations, there’s got to be some fire accessories to go along with the apparel. As previously mentioned, the Camp Cap is designed like the rest of the Summit Series gear and offered in the same black, olive and pink color schemes. Also offered with the same specs are a Route Rocket Backpack with a 16L storage capacity and a Neck Pouch. That backpack would be perfect for your next summer hike.

 

By now, Supreme resellers and fans alike know the drill – register for a physical spot in line on Tuesday at 11am via register.supremenewyork.com and make your way to the store on Thursday for the release. If you didn’t know, now you know. You can also try your luck online through Supreme’s web store on May 27. Japanese outposts will drop the merch on May 29.

 

 

It looks like Supreme and The North Face will be releasing at least 4 collections every year now. They started it back in Fall/Winter 2020 and have continued the trend into Spring/Summer 2021. Both being owned by VF Corp., do you think this is a good move or will this get played out ASAP?
