Supreme Reveals 2016 Fall Collection With Slayer
A new range of outerwear and tees feature the thrash metal band.
Following up a collaboration with Nobuyoshi Araki for an erotic-centric capsule, Supreme’s next collection for Fall/Winter 2016 features Slayer. The thrash metal band was established in 1981 in Huntington Park, California, where members Jeff Hanneman, Kerry King, Dave Lombardo and Tom Araya would play cover songs at events before recording Show No Mercy. Released in 1983 with no budget, Slayer’s debut album marked the beginning of the band’s legacy, which would lead them to release 12 albums with 20 million records sold.
Supreme honors Slayer with a heavy punk-rock mood and recognizable graphics, like the band’s eagle logo. Song titles and lyrics, such as “South of Heaven and “Reign of Blood,” are also found across the range of tees, sweatshirts, sweatpants, coach jackets and a M-65 jacket. Preview the entire lineup above before it drops in-store and online November 10, and November 12 in Japan.
