Supreme – you know them, let’s not do this again – and Comme des Garcon – the Japanese brand with the French name founded by incredibly cool/intense design icon Rei Kawakubo, best known for those Converses with the hearts on them – have come together in holy sartorial matrimony on this new Spring/Summer ‘17 collaboration. 

The drop sees lurid print cotton gabardine suits, sleazy Miami playboy short-sleeve shirts, plus the inevitable mash-up logo hooded sweatshirts and tees and we love it all but, chances are, will likely never get within screaming distance of owning them. That is sad. But some of you may be luckier.

The key items of the collection in our minds is the absolutely k-i-l-l-e-r lightweight polyurethane-coated fishtail parka and the customised Nike Air Force 1 – the jacket looking like the sexiest, most expensivest bin-bag you’ve ever clapped your little eyes on and the trainers, with that instantly recognisable shape, so beloved since its 1982 inception with a look that’s barely changed since, except that here it looks like it’s been run over by a Jeep. That is cool, man. Accidents are cool. 

The collection will be available at Dover Street Market as well as Supreme’s New York, Los Angeles, London and Paris stores, and its online store, from 13 April.
