Initially teased in Supreme’s Fall/Winter 2018 preview, the brand has partnered with director John Woo to pay homage to the latter’s 1989 Hong Kong action classic The Killer.

The promotional film for the drop also hints that the collaboration incorporates the Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA. The collection’s connection to Woo is obvious, but you might be wondering how this would relate to RZA. The teaser video, revealed on Supreme’s Instagram this morning, features the lines: “He looks determined without being ruthless. Something heroic in his manner. There’s a courage about him. Doesn’t look like a killer.” Fans of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx will remember that the very same line from the film leads off the track “Incarcerated Surfaces”. Of course, RZA also remarks on the film’s legacy as it approaches its 30th anniversary near the end of the Supreme teaser.

While we were expecting an M-65 jacket thanks to the aforementioned preview, the drop also includes a movie logo hoodie, a longsleeve tee and T-shirt depicting scenes from the film, along with a skate deck.

The Supreme x The Killer collaboration will arrive online and at Supreme’s NYC, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, London and Paris stores on October 25. The collaboration will hit Supreme’s Japanese locations on October 27.
