The latest Supreme artist collaboration features the late Daniel Johnston, a creative in both the worlds of music and illustration. Known for his oddball sketches and scratchy, hand-drawn aesthetic, this Spring/Summer 2020 features several hallmarks of Johnston's visual archive.

Rising to prominence in the offbeat Austin, TX music scene in the late 1980s, Johnston gained national recognition after Kurt Cobain was photographed wearing a T-shirt featuring Johnston's Hi, How Are You? album artwork. The frog character, sometimes referred to a "Jeremiah the Innocent", has become the best-known symbol of Johnston's art—gracing everything from a mural in Austin to this Spring/Summer 2020 Supreme collaboration. While Johnston passed away in September 2019, his influence is still felt across both the art and music worlds.

This is collaboration is far from the first time that Johnston's work has appeared alongside Supreme. The duo teamed up for a small selection back in 2012 and again in 2015. The Spring/Summer 2015 collection was considerably larger, featuring work shirts and a Harrington jacket alongside the usual tees and hoodies. This collection features an embroidered work jacket, a plaid shirt, a rayon shirt (a Supreme Spring/Summer seasonal signature), an embroidered work pant, a hoodie, T-shirts and a beanie. Fans will recognize the inclusion of various Johnston characters, including—but not limited to—Jeremiah the Innocent.

The Daniel Johnston x Supreme collaboration hits Supreme retailers online-only on May 14, arriving in Japan on May 16. Keep it locked on Grailed's Hype marketplace after the items sell-out during the drop.
