Last week, Supreme made headlines after founder James Jebbia was nominated for Menswear Designer of the Year at the upcoming 2018 CFDA Awards. Following the news, we explored if this signalled the end of its anti-establishment roots. The latest rumour suggests so, with the brand apparently collaborating with Dolce & Gabbana on a new collection.
After Supreme’s collaboration with Louis Vuitton – definitively the collaboration of the year – fans and hypebeasts alike have been wondering if there will be another designer collaboration on the way. One person who is turning the rumour mill is half of the design duo, Stefano Gabbana.
Often active on Instagram (remember his feuds with Miley Cyrus and Diet Prada?) Gabbana regrammed from some of Supreme’s most reliable info accounts – among them @supreme_leaks_news that has over 1 million followers – leading to speculation that the rumours are in fact true.
The designer hasn’t confirmed or denied whether or not the collaboration will actually take place, leaving it up to the fans to hype it up. According to @boxlogosupreme though, the collection was signed off last week and will be released during the AW18 season, priced at the usual high-end level.
Officially, there is no word from Supreme as to whether or not the collaboration is going to drop, but keep an eye out for more – stranger things have happened in fashion.
