Supreme x UNDERCOVER get political with new Public Enemy collaboration
"Laughing at the fallacy of race"
The authoritative apparel brand Supreme, Japanese fashion imprint UNDERCOVER and Chuck D, the frontman from the dissident ‘90s hip-hop group Public Enemy, have teamed up for a new streetwear collection.
The streetwear collection takes Public Enemy’s iconic, anti-establishment ‘b boy in crosshairs’ logo along with the busy and colorful artwork from the groups 1990 album ‘Fear of a Black Planet’ for a nostalgic, loud and political fashion collection. An album that aims to “laugh at the fallacy of race,” as put by Chuck D in a video produced by Supreme, ‘The Fear of a Black Planet’ is a seminal 20-track recording that gave us tracks such as ‘Brothers Gonna Work It Out’ and ‘Fight The Power’.
Hitting Supreme stores in LA, New York, London and Paris in the spring/summer of 2018, the collection includes outerwear, hoodies, t-shirts, vests, pants, coin purses, gold chains, a special collaboration with Dr. Martens and a full ‘Fear of The Black Planet’ rug.
