Supreme x Public Enemy x UNDERCOVER

Supreme, UNDERCOVER and Public Enemy are releasing a Spring/ Summer 2018 capsule. But not without controversy.

Supreme is set to drop yet another collaborative collection, and this time it will be alongside iconic brands Public Enemy and UNDERCOVER. This collaboration has long been in the works and Public Enemy fans will not be let down by the Spring/Summer Collection.

Supreme took to Instagram to release a short video clip showing Chuck D from the acclaimed rap group, who says, “the album is laughing at the fallacy of race. Racism is an endorsed game so people can benefit at the expense of others based on their appearance and the fear is not accepting the truth about it.”

The release is a nod to Public Enemy’s 1990 album, Fear of a Black Planet, and incorporates the album art in pieces from the collection.

The collection will include printed tees, long-sleeves, hoodies, a body warmer, anorak and an all-over print puffer jacket, along with a take on UNDERCOVER’s iconic coin purse, a pair of Dr. Martens, 14K-gold necklaces, and a Black Planet rug.

Fans of Supreme and the iconic rap group expressed their concerns with the group, citing the possibility of “seeing the general rich white kid hypebeasts” wearing pieces from the collection without understanding the meaning of its message.
As controversial as the collection is, we’re still excited for its release.
