The capsule collection will be available from 2nd October in Stone Island flagship stores in Milan, Verona, Florence, Rome, London, Paris, Munich and Seoul. It will also be sold through the brand’s own e-commerce website in the USA and Canada and in selected European countries. In Japan and South Korea they will be available from October the 4th. At the same time they will also be available at the Supreme shops and online store.

Supreme opened its doors in April 1994 on Lafayette Street in downtown Manhattan, New York, and became the home of New York City skate culture. The gangs of rebellious young New York skaters and artists became the store's staff, crew and customers. Supreme grew to embody the downtown culture and played an iconic role in its constant regeneration. Skaters, punks and hip-hoppers - the young counter culture at large - all gravitated towards Supreme. While it became a downtown institution, Supreme established itself as a brand known for its quality, style and authenticity.

Over the past twenty years, Supreme has worked with some of most groundbreaking designers, artists, photographers and musicians - all who have helped continue to define its unique identity and attitude.
