Supreme burst onto the scene designing clothes for skateboarders in New York City. The last decade has seen a meteoric rise in the cult of Supreme. Crucial to the success of Supreme is its high-profile collaborations with celebrated designers that merge skateboard culture with luxury. “Supreme-heads,” as fans of the brand are called, line up for hours before a big-name collaboration is released and these items sell out within minutes. This creates an active resale market for Supreme products, so if you have your heart set on a garment with that distinctive logo, check out the offerings on Vestiaire Collective. It saves you from having to stand in line for hours, and buying a pre-loved piece is Fashion Activism in its purest form because it’s an environmentally sustainable way to shop your favourite looks.
Take a look at some of the luxury jackets born from Supreme’s most exciting collaborations
Supreme and The North Face have teamed up many times in the past. The combination of rugged outdoors and skateboard chic creates a cool and unassuming vibe that makes young — and young at heart — fashion lovers go wild.
This faux fur puffer collaboration debuted for Autumn/Winter 2020 and is a reimagination of the classic The North Face Nuptse puffer jacket. If The North Face pedigree wasn’t enough, imagine blending it Supreme’s inimitable cool. Enveloped in a cozy faux fur and featuring 700-fill down with a WindWall lining, this coat is designed for subzero temperatures. In red, green and black colour options this festive coat is sure to become a cold weather favourite. And if you can’t get enough of this collaboration, this line also saw the release of faux fur backpacks in the same colour scheme. Say yes to faux fur that conserves natural resources with a pre-loved piece from Vestiaire.
Supreme and The North Face have released a limited edition collaboration for over 10 years and their printed puffers are signatures. Autumn/Winter 2013 saw the release of the Fur Print Puffer and with 700-fill down, it’s as warm as a real fur coat would be.
Released in 2019, the much anticipated Nuptse paper print puffer is also a hugely popular streetwear staple and even more popular on the resale market. The world just can’t get enough of this partnership and the exclusivity of these coats ensure a high resale value on Vestiaire. These are excellent investment pieces, but if you live in a cold climate, or if you just love these brands, you might want to hold onto them yourself because they will stay stylish for seasons to come.
With their incredible cosiness and the head-turning The North Face and Supreme logos on the shoulder, these are coats our community of Fashion Activists are coveting right now.
For a winter coat that you can wear on a daily basis, the Supreme Unicolor Puffer is a great bet. Yes, Supreme is known for creating recognisable and eye-catching patterns. The Supreme graffiti jacket and even an all-red-and-white Louis Vuitton x Supreme logomania design come to mind. Still, it’s always a good idea to have a solid colour Supreme piece in your closet for when you want to keep a low profile.
Supreme isn’t only about the exclusivity of the piece. It is also designed for functionality. In order for Supreme to have such a thriving resale market for vintage finds on Vestiaire Collective, their collections have to be well made. When fashion brands commit to quality, their garments and accessories last much longer, which makes them more sustainable and better for resale. The Unicolour Puffer is a high quality jacket in a design that pairs completely effortlessly for everyday wear, finished with the undeniable cool that the Supreme logo offers. When you buy yours pre-loved on the app, you’re opting into the circular fashion economy that keeps you fashionably fresh while preserving the environment.
Spring 2020 saw the merging of two hot brands once again. You guessed it, Supreme and The North Face — this time with an emphasis on utilitarian design. Remote Terrain Gear, or RTG, was a line from The North Face’s past. With the infusion of youthful cool that Supreme provides, the revamp of this ‘90s line is even more versatile than it was upon its debut. The RTG jacket and vest are detachable so you can wear them separately, or together and be prepared for anything. An added bonus is the hood, which prominently features the Supreme logo. This is a technical piece with a pocket for a hydration bladder in the back. Featuring waterproof Gore-Tex® nylon, the weather is never going to be a problem in this slick look.
As with all of the Supreme x The North Face collaborations, the collection sold out in no time. The best way to secure your RTG jacket is to shop second-hand on Vestiaire Collective and join our global community of Fashion Activists in shopping sustainably without sacrificing style.
While Supreme revolutionised skateboard fashion, Gore-Tex® revolutionised waterproofing. Gone are the days when waterproof coats made you sweaty and uncomfortable. With Gore-Tex®, you stay dry in a lightweight, breathable fabric.
Coats that are designed from the creative masterminds behind these two brands are as functional as they are cool. The most recent offering was released in February 2021 and it is a statement jacket worthy of the life of the party. The Supreme x Gore-Tex® Stickers Shell Jacket is a poly shell with a printed pattern that is a nod to skateboard culture which plasters their boards with stickers.
Another option for those who love to play in and with their clothes is the Gore-Tex® Smurf jacket in camo, neon yellow, or black with embossed images of everyone’s favourite blue characters.
If you’re in the mood for a more subdued jacket, the Supreme Gore-Tex® Court Jacket is a lightweight piece emblazoned by both brands’ logos. Whatever look you opt for, browse the Vestiaire app to see if your favourite Supreme x Gore-Tex® style is available pre-loved. You’ll grab a piece you love for less and help reduce the carbon footprint that comes from shopping new all at the same time.
The North Face Tactical jacket is an ultra-technical piece. It is waterproof and windproof and abrasion resistant. In other words, this jacket can’t be beat. Whether you are looking for an outerwear piece for mountaineering or for training, and you want to do it in style, the Supreme x The North Face collaboration is a match made in outdoor gear heaven.
Limited product drops of the collabs between these two brands mean that the quantities are scarce and competition to get one of these is high. Have no fear, though. Your cold weather outdoor activities can be done while looking flawless in Supreme x The North Face by shopping pre-loved at Vestiaire Collective. You can give a second life to these built to last pieces. Your closet, and the planet, will thank you.
Nothing is quite as cool as the subdued look of a monochrome ensemble. Supreme is well-known for its high-impact prints, but the label offers suit jackets and parkas in traditional colour schemes, as well. Tradition took on a powerful twist by two of the biggest names in punk fashion with the Autumn/Winter 2020 collaboration of Supreme and Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto. Yamamoto is a beloved name in the avant-garde fashion scene who tends to favour dark colours, so with the rebellious leanings of Supreme, there couldn’t be a more brilliant pairing of worlds.
The monochrome heavy collection features a wool suit jacket with graphic design by Peter Saville. Supreme is a champion of artistic collaborations and this collection also includes work by graffiti artist Sancheeto on Yamamoto’s adored fishtail parka. Like most of Yamamoto’s designs, this parka is dark, loose and androgynous. If you spot it on the Vestiaire Collective app, don’t hesitate to make it yours because this piece is a collector’s item. Pre-loved, it will keep your style on point and preserve the planet’s precious resources.
What is better than one Supreme coat? How about two-in-one? Supreme has been a fan of reversible designs across many season’s collections. If you find one pre-loved on Vestiaire Collective, you can sustainably shop a versatile piece you’ll love for the long term.
The Supreme Reversible Puffer from the Spring/Summer 2020 comes in a range of bright, shiny colours in a water-resistant nylon. The down-filled baffles are sure to keep you warm. This puffer doesn’t scream Supreme like some pieces. Instead the logo is subtly written around the neck in a reflective logo.
Reversible doesn’t always mean ‘puffer’, though. Supreme also offers a reversible Sherpa Work Parka. The super soft Supreme Fleece has colourblock design for a wind-proof statement look. No matter how you like to flip and reverse, our global community of Fashion Activists are adding reversible coat styles by Supreme to the Vestiaire Collective app every week. Find yours pre-loved and make a vote for Supreme cool and environmental sustainability with a few taps.
Supreme likes to be a little wild so it’s no surprise that they take inspiration from the animal kingdom on their designs, too. Animal print is a perennial favourite at Supreme. Elephant, snake, leopard and even zebra prints have all been featured on Supreme jackets.
One exotic piece we will never get sick of is the Supreme x The North Face Nuptse in eye-catching leopard print. This jacket doesn’t only come in the traditional black and orange. You can also find it in green, blue or grey, which Drake famously wore in his “The Motto” music video, further cementing this collab jacket as a cult item. The Supreme x The North Face leopard print Nuptse is a favourite among Vestiaire’s Fashion Activists and when you buy it pre-loved, you can feel good about reducing your carbon imprint by shopping sustainably.
Supreme doesn’t shy away from being bold, so a piece from this brand is always a statement item. But there are some jackets that are even more unapologetically eye-catching. Supreme and The North Face’s statement designer bomber is one of those pieces. With ‘by any means necessary’ emblazoned all over, this jacket is an iconic design that alludes to the rallying cry of the US Civil Rights movement. It is one of the most iconic Supreme pieces.
The lightweight but super warm Baltoro parka in Statue of Liberty print is a tribute to The City Of Dreams, and the city that started Supreme. It’s not the only New York-printed item from Supreme and The North Face. The New York Public Library print jacket is a super rare and valuable item from the two brands that is a great collector’s item to buy pre-loved.
For a statement designer jacket that makes sure your presence is noted in every circumstance, check out statement print pieces by Supreme and The North Face on Vestiaire Collective. By shopping pre-loved, you help to mitigate the harmful impacts of the fashion industry on the planet while keeping your closet indisputably cool.
Supreme is an endlessly inventive and creative brand that doesn’t seem to have a limit to their popularity and Supreme fans are as devoted as they come. Some have been known to fly to one of the world’s twelve physical locations and camp out the night before a release. After all, each release has very limited quantities and the scarcity elevates the obsession. Call it an obsession or a lifestyle, but definitely don’t call it a trend. Supreme is a firmly entrenched name in the fashion world that isn’t going anywhere.
Supreme collaborations are some of the most hyped and hard to acquire collections. But thanks to our global community of Fashion Activists, not only is it possible to get that rare Nuptse collaboration jacket you’ve dreamed of, but you can do it in a manner that is much better for the planet. When you extend the lifespan of a garment by participating in the circular economy, you significantly reduce your carbon footprint. Buying pre-loved Supreme pieces on Vestiaire Collective is not only the easiest way to get a piece from this iconic brand, it is the best way to engage in conscious consumption.
Supreme pieces are meant to be worn and collected, not thrown out. By buying a pre-loved piece today you can enjoy being part of the hype, and know it will keep its value when you are ready to sell. Preventing landfill waste and looking good at the same time, that is supremely cool fashion.
