First Thoughts: Supreme F/W ’16

preme 1

You probably saw the news when you woke up Monday morning. There’s a good chance your phone was buzzing with texts from your fashion-forwards homies asking for your opinion and thoughts. The Internet is going nuts, like it always does. Yup, the lookbook and product images for Supreme F/W ’16 are upon us.

So here’s a true first impression for you. I just finished browsing through everything for the very first time, and am going off the top of my head with my unfiltered thoughts and opinions on the collection. It’s 11 AM Monday as this is being written, and we’re getting right to it. The first word that comes to my mind? Safe.

I like the collection. I think there’s a lot of dope, wearable pieces. However … there’s nothing that really jumps off of the page at me in any category.

Part of what makes Supreme so great is their “wow” factor. There’s a few pieces every season that really catch your eye and get you hyped. That’s part of the reason that they’ve managed to be at the top of the game for over two decades. I didn’t really see any of those “wow” pieces in this collection.

Sure, there’s the box logo hoodies, but those are going to be a banger no matter when they drop. I’m talking about new, fresh pieces that we haven’t seen before that are real head-turners. The closest to that “wow” piece would be the patchwork jacket (pictured above on the left), which kind of reminds me of something Visvim or Undercover might do.

All in all, I’m feeling a hard 6.5/10 first impression. Biggest pros are wearable pieces and great accessories (like usual), and biggest cons are lack of standout pieces and sub-par graphic tees. We’ll have to wait and see what the collabs (Nike, North Face, etc) are looking like before a final judgement on the season is passed, but so far it’s looking solid if not spectacular.
