Supreme

The newly released 2019 fall/winter collection is here to keep you both fashionable and warm.

In case you haven’t heard of it before, Supreme is a designer brand established in New York City in 1994. In 2004, the company opened a second store location in Los Angeles and now has 11 stores worldwide. The 12th store will soon be opening in San Francisco this winter.

The company has increasingly gained clout from Instagram influencers and popular artists rocking the Supreme logo. Many celebrities, including Kendall Jenner, Rihanna, Travis Scott and Justin Bieber, have been spotted wearing Supreme. Supreme has done collaboration pieces with brands such as Nike, Lacoste, Louis Vuitton, Vans and Stone Island. The company releases a new collection of clothing biannually.

The fall/winter 2019 collection was first released exclusively in stores in Los Angeles, New York, London and Paris on Aug. 22. Japan was later added to the list on Aug. 26. The full catalog is available to view on the Supreme website. Here are the top 11 must-have picks from the collection.

1. Checkerboard Puffy Jacket

The first must-have item of the collection is the Checkerboard Puffy Jacket. It comes in three different color combinations.

The jacket is water-resistant and has a removable hood, so it is perfect for all types of winter weather conditions. The Supreme logo is on the front and back of the jacket, so you can rep the brand everywhere you go.

2. Polartec Pant

We all know that camo is in style right now and these sweats are the perfect new addition to your closet’s camo collection. These pants are perfect for lazy study days and going to class.

They are simple, so you can wear them with anything you want. The sweats are made of fleece and are ready to keep you warm on the coldest days of the year.

3. WINDSTOPPER Zip Up Hooded Sweatshirt

Need a cozy hoodie to wear for your morning run or a trip to the coffee shop? The WINDSTOPPER Zip Up Hooded Sweatshirt will become that favorite sweatshirt you never want to take off.

It’s water-resistant, so you don’t have to worry if it’s going to start raining while you’re out running errands and forgot your umbrella. It’s also lined with fleece, meaning you can continue wearing it long into the winter. This zip-up also pairs perfectly with the Polartec Pant.

4. Supreme/Pelican 1060 Case

This neon compact phone case is waterproof, dustproof and uncrushable. It has been tested and can protect your smartphone for at least 30 minutes fully submerged in water.

Never again will you have to worry about the safety of your beloved cell phone. With the Supreme/Pelican 1060 Case, you can carry Supreme with you everywhere you go.

5. Gore-Tex Taped Seam Jacket

The Gore-Tex Taped Seam Jacket is the perfect windbreaker for those in-between fall days.

When it’s not cold enough to warrant wearing your parka or puffer coat, you can throw on this stylish light jacket instead. The jacket is currently up for bidding on StockX.

6. Supreme Martin Wong 8 Ball Hooded Sweatshirt

Do you like modern art? This intricate hoodie is printed with a famous painting by the late artist Martin Wong. Wong’s art is known for its social realism and meticulous designs.

The Supreme Martin Wong 8 Ball Hooded Sweatshirt is not only casual and cute, but it also shows your appreciation for Wong’s influence as an artist.

7. Patchwork Leather Backpack

Mid-semester, when your backpack is breaking from carrying your 10 pound biology textbook, go online and buy the Patchwork Leather Backpack.

It’s sturdy, so it won’t rip as easily as that JanSport you’ve been carrying since freshman year of high school. It’s also black, so it won’t get dirty. The leather will add sophistication to your look and will match with anything you wear.

8. Supreme Text Rib Sweatpant

These cute cotton jogger sweats are wearable all year round. With six different color options, you can get a pair to match your favorite sneakers.

The Supreme Text Rib Sweatpant comes in yellow, black, green, blue, white and red. They are the perfect thing to make you feel both comfortable and confident on the day of your big exam.

9. Wool Windowpane Overcoat

If you’re a girl who likes to rock pink while still looking punk, this is the perfect jacket for you.

You can wear it to any event, from your fall outing to the pumpkin patch to your Friday night bar crawl around campus. The coat is both sophisticated and fun. The Wool Windowpane Overcoat also comes in black if that’s more your color.

10. New Era Script Cuff Beanie

If you live in the Northeast or the Midwest, you need the New Era Script Cuff Beanie. It will keep your ears warm on the coldest snowy days this winter.

It comes in six different color combinations including purple/black, red/white, white/black, green/orange, blue/red and black/yellow.

11. Supreme Shoulder Bag

The Supreme Shoulder Bag is similar to other bags sold in the past, except there are new colors and more space to hold your essentials. If you’re a girl like me who doesn’t like to carry purses but finds herself leaving important items at home, this shoulder bag might be your best solution. Supreme’s bags are often on sale and easy to find. The black shoulder bag is currently being sold on StockX and they can all be purchased on the Supreme website.

While some of these items might be out of your price range as a student, you can find Supreme items from former collections at reduced prices on sites like eBay. Clothing and accessories from former collections, as well as this one, are available on GRAILED, StockX and Streetwear Official.
