    Supreme Confirms Michael Jackson Capsule Collection
    By Roger Krastz May 11, 2017 3:45 PM


    Supreme
    Last month, rumors of a possible Supreme x Michael Jackson capsule collection surfaced online. At the time, reports on the collab remained vague, with no information available for consumers. Today, the streetwear brand confirmed the upcoming release of the Michael Jackson collection with a post on Instagram showcasing one of the apparel pieces from the collection.
    Posting a photo online of Supreme and Grind Magazine’s Spring/Summer editorial, the New York City retailer introduced one of the garments from the upcoming collection. Showcasing the backside of a white tee, Supreme highlights a monochromatic image of a young Michael Jackson in red a color scheme.
    While Supreme’s IG post confirms the drop of this collection, apparel pieces and accessories from the capsule, details have yet to be released by Supreme. Expect the brand to announce more news of this release as well as detailed images of the collection in the coming days.
    In related Supreme news, a few days ago the New York City retailer introduced its latest collaboration with Levi’s for spring and summer of 2017. Compromised of jean trucker jacket and 501 jeans, the collection dropped earlier today at all U.S. and European Supreme flagship stores.

    Branca said this about the deal in the IRS-Trial




    After two failed clothing line licensing attempts during the course of his living career, the one likeness deal that shows potential after his death is with a teen clothing company called Supreme. Branca explained to Holmes that kids are "crazy" for the company's shirts and the deal is an effort to rebrand Jackson's image with a younger audience.

    "We make no money from it, but maybe someday we’ll get new fans," he said.

    God, they look amateurish. You can find nicer looking stuff on eBay from China. No wonder if these clothing lines fail with that little effort.

    I have no idea whey they have chosen that MJ picture.
    The 'cool' MJ people remember is the MJ silhouette. Or anything from the Beat It, BAD, Smooth Criminal, Thriller videos. Or any BJ concert performance from the 80s or early 90s. Hell I'd even stretch it by saying that a still from the Black Or White or Scream videos would be cool too. They could even just use the MJ logo (without the King of Pop reference).

    I can't see any skaters going for merchandise with that MJ picture on.

    The MJ Estate have officially licensed this, so why use such a bad picture when they had a whole catalogue of great pictures to use? This venture will fail unless they change it.

    It looks cheap. They should have used another picture of Michael.

    I wish they would come out with a clothing line of clothes that are inspired by MJ's own fashion. Clothes that maybe MJ would have worn himself. We don't need more clothes that just have MJ's face put on them.
    Put all your energy into your finger and throw it out like fire.

    Supreme are known for relatively simple design clothing and being rather expensive thanks to their brand name. If you were aware of Supreme before this announcement, these designs wouldn't be a surprise to you. I actually kinda like it and wouldn't mind the t-shirt, but I wouldn't spend as much as I imagine they'll charge for it, I think it looks better than the shirts available on MJ's official store right now.

    THIS image though, aside from the fact it's blurry, looks like a counterfeit based on leaked or supposed designs. I don't imagine the actual products Supreme would sell would print photos this poorly.

    So they are basically making ugly, cheap desing as if I would have downloaded a photo from the Internet and had ironed it on one of my shirts real amateurishly and then they put a brand above it and sell it real expensive as if it was a fashion statement? It's funny what they can sell to people expensive by brand-snobism.

    It's a higher end fashion brand. As with anything, the brand name is very well known and thus it will sell. Some people like the designs and, especially those with an interest in fashion, aren't bothered by the higher prices.

    Ugly is a matter of opinion and in terms of construction + material, they aren't exactly cheap either. I don't own any Supreme gear myself, but you can generally expect these higher end brands to also have a higher quality 'build' in terms of it's construction + material than your average department store clothing (which band merch essentially is). Feel better, fits better and they don't fall apart as easily. Supreme also deliberately supplies limited numbers whilst knowing they are very high in demand, so following the basic law of supply vs. demand means they can charge more, and people will still pay because they want their hands on exclusive goods.

    It's not hard to see why most people don't get the appeal of these shirts and no-one denies that these are often expensive, in fact it's a running joke from what I've seen online. However alongside joking, those with a dedicated interest in fashion genuinely don't mind and are happy to pay more for an exclusive branded design they love that's also well made, so good for them I guess.

    I did some research into average new Supreme prices and this seemed to be the average price range in USD. I could be off as it's kinda hard to figure out the price of new gear as it seems to vary a bit, there's no local store to check AND a lot of the gear is re-sold on for fluctuated prices.

    T-Shirt: ~$40-55USD (Their plain, iconic 'Supreme' logo tee is $34).
    Button shirt: ~$115USD
    Hoodie: ~$150USD
    Caps: ~$40USD

    If printed properly (I don't believe the Instagram photo of the hoodie is accurate of their print), the t-shirt design still looks and would feel better than almost everything else on the MJ store. Interested to see what they have (won't be buying), but knowing their typical style and price range this doesn't surprise or bother me in the slightest.

    ^ I understand it perfectly how branding works. That doesn't mean I can't think they don't look good.
