For more than two decades, the highlight of every Supreme season has been collaborations. Apart from a few teases in the seasonal lookbook, Supreme collaborations are famously announced the week they drop, and the limited nature and surprise arrival has led to some of the highest resale value of any item in the brand’s catalogue. While collaborations are as infrequent as they are seemingly random, over numerous seasons some partnerships are not only expected, but actively anticipated. Of these longstanding partnerships—Nike, Lacoste, Stone Island—one stands above the rest: The North Face.

Dating back 12 years, Supreme’s seasonal North Face drops are not only highly sought after, but helped reposition North Face’s cultural standing as a whole. While the Nuptse puffer and Mountain jacket have been New York street style staples for decades, the proliferation and widespread recognition of The North Face in streetwear proper is largely due to its longstanding relationship with Supreme. Over 20-plus seasons, the two brands have forged a partnership that has birthed countless styles, eager fans and cultural moments aplenty leading, leading to massive sales boons for both. Below, we break down how Supreme x The North Face went from humble capsule to the highlight of each Supreme season.
