Supreme looks to honor one of the most iconic soul singers of all time in its latest collection, Marvin Gaye Jr. Hailing originally from Washington, D.C. the singer, songwriter and producer’s career is one that many hold dear to their hearts. Back in 1960, he relocated to Detroit and signed with Motown subsidiary Tamla Records which led to his first Billboard #1 with “I Heard it Through the Grapevine” in 1968. Pop culture was forever changed when Gaye released nine-track album, What’s Going On.
This fall, the range features original album artwork from that same studio album. For those who are familiar, the project utilized jazz, gospel, and orchestral elements to touch on political topics of the time. The collection features a hooded sweatshirt, T-shirt and skateboard. The drop will also include four new T-shirts.
The collection will be available in-store in NY, Brooklyn, LA, London, Paris and at Supreme’s website on December 13. Japan will see a release on December 15.
