Supreme x The North Face S/S 2020 Week 13: What we know #TheStreetScene

An update on what we know about this Thursday’s highly-anticipated Supreme release

Yesterday, Carbon reported the information that rumours had been circulating online that this Thursday, 21st May, Supreme were set to release another collaboration with long-term partners The North Face.

This morning, 24 hours after the article was first posted to Carbon’s official website, Supreme posted on their social media platforms confirming that the collaboration was taking place and was set to release this Thursday at 11am GMT. The products set to be released include cargo jackets, cargo vests, cargo pants, sunshield camp caps and many more products that can be found on their official website and Instagram account. Supreme also announced that 100% of profits from One World Tee sales will go to GlobalGiving’s Coronavirus Relief Fund, helping to provide resources for the most vulnerable throughout the pandemic.

Supreme have teamed up with the popular American outdoor company The North Face on several occasions, with their first collaboration being as early as F/W 2007. Thirteen years later, the two brands are still going strong, and fans will be desperate to get their hands on these “hyped” pieces of streetwear, which is set to drop in a couple of days.

The rumours which were surfacing on social media yesterday, before the collaboration was official announced, came as a massive shock to fans as the last time Supreme released products with The North Face was just under two months ago, three weeks in to their Spring/Summer 2020 collection. The products released included their popular fleece jackets, balaclavas and utility pouches, all being available in a neon colour-way at the time. These all sold out instantly.

Supreme have been at the forefront of the streetwear industry through their massive fan following and continue to grow at a rate in which no other brand can seemingly compete with. Founded in 1994 by James Jebbia, Supreme has an impressive array of previous collaborations with major fashion brands, such as Nike, Stone Island, Champion, Comme des Garçons and many others. Their collaborations have been known for selling out almost instantly as soon as they are released on their weekly Thursday schedule, with the next one set to sell out once again.
