Supreme by Phaidon Press
Ships in 1-2 weeks. Over the past 25 years, Supreme has transformed itself from a downtown New York skate shop into an iconic global brand. Supreme-the book-looks back on more than two decades of the creations, stories, and convention-defying attitude that are uniquely Supreme. Featuring more than 800 stunning images, from photographers such as Larry Clark, Ari Marcopoulos, and David Sims, readers will have unparallled access to behind-the-scenes content, including the company's highly limited products-everything from t-shirts to bicycles-and collaborations-Nan Goldin, Comme de Garçons, and Nike, to name a few. The book also features a curated section of lookbooks and an index of T-shirts released since Supreme's Spring/Summer 2010 collections. And, with written contributions by pop-culture critic Carlo McCormick and film director Harmony Korine, readers will get exclusive insight into Supreme's core ethos from two lifelong devotees. Known as much for its irreverent and iconoclastic spirit as it is for its commitment to design and quality, Supreme's products have become as recognizable and coveted as those from the world's top luxury brands-this book is no exception. Beautifully produced, the book is the epitome of Supreme's dedication to quality and design, including a reversible jacket with the signature red Supreme logo.

Supreme by James Jebbia
Ships in 1-2 weeks. In April 1994, Supreme opened its doors on Lafayette Street in downtown Manhattan and became the home of New York City skate culture. Challenging the dominance of the established West Coast skater scene and the new conservatism of 1990s New York, Supreme defined the aesthetic of an era of rebellious cool that reached from skaters to fashionistas and hip hop heads. Over the last sixteen years, the brand has stayed true to its roots while collaborating with some of the most groundbreaking artists and designers of its generation, and with stores in Los Angeles and Japan has become an international icon of independent counter-cultural style. This definitive monograph - with written contributions from contrasting arbiters of style, Aaron Bondaroff and Glenn O'Brien, and including an interview between founder James Jebbia and the artist KAWS - brings together the disparate elements of the brand's output, from legendary advertising campaigns to especially commissioned skateboard designs, photographs, and artworks, and a comprehensive index of their products to date. Including collaborations with Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Damien Hirst, Public Enemy, Lou Reed, and Futura 2000 among many others, this richly illustrated book is a survey of sixteen years of contemporary street fashion and culture reflected in the pioneering work of one of New York's most influential independent labels.
