Always ready to show off its artistic side, Supreme returns for week three with its first artist collaboration of the season—this time incorporating the works of American artist Mike Kelley.

Born in Michigan in 1954, Kelley would ultimately end up at the forefront of the Detroit punk scene before decamping to LA, where he would develop his blend of abstract art, expressionism, sculpture, found art and performance art. While his works have graced galleries the world over, one of his most recognizable works (Ahh...Youth!) is found on the cover and insert of Sonic Youth’s 1992 album Dirty.

For its collection, Supreme has pulled from numerous works from Kelley’s archive. Aside from the aforementioned Ahh...Youth!, Supreme also incorporated More Love Hours Than Can Ever Be Repaid (which was notably presented alongside the wax sculpture The Wages of Sin), as well images from his Reconstructed History series.

As its many artist inspirations would suggest, Supreme’s taken full advantage of Kelley’s work, plastering it on a work jacket, a rayon shirt, a crewneck sweatshirt, two hoodies, three tees and a full set of eight skateboards (meant to replicate the original presentation of Ahh...Youth!’s framed cibachrome prints).

The collaboration hits Supreme’s NYC, Brooklyn, LA, London and Paris locations—as well as online—on September 6. Supreme’s Japanese stores will receive the drop on September 8. Be sure to keep it locked on Grailed shortly after 11 am as the drop makes its way to our Hype marketplace.
