A couple of weeks ago, Supreme released a capsule collection with Vans that made my heart stop. The two super brands teamed up for what I consider the most epic collaboration ever, based on New Order‘s 1983 cover art for Power, Corruption & Lies – which was a reproduction of the painting “A Basket of Roses” by French artist Henri Fantin-Latour. Power, Corruption & Lies is one of my favorite albums of all time. I mean, I DO have the Peter Saville color bar from that album tattooed on my wrist. (Please see photo below of when I finally found the US pressing of the record brand new + sealed for a few bucks at a random record store in Kenosha, WI several years ago. Oh, the thrill of digging for records in the middle of nowhere).
Anyway, I had no idea that the line had even dropped until I saw a tweet about it from my gal pal Rachel. I immediately went to the Supreme website and saw that of course, everything had sold out since the release the day prior. #epicfail on my part, right?! Then just last week I realized that not only did they create shoes and a skateboard, but there was a tee, hoodie and shorts as well. Needless to say, I’m pretty bummed I don’t have at least the tee (shoes only came in a men’s 8+) but hey, I guess it wasn’t meant to be. Regardless, I’m still a way bigger New Order fan than you, so in case you did buy that shirt or hoodie in a size small and feel like sending it my way – trust that it’s in good hands!
