The History of Supreme's Music Collaborations

From Miles Davis to Three 6 Mafia, the brand's fascination with iconic musicians is impressive.


Brands can point to skateboarding, the city they're from, personal experiences, and movie stars from the past to source inspiration for their collections. But at the core of nearly every movement, there's music. And few brands have taken inspiration from music history more than Supreme

The New York-based streetwear brand has been catching plenty of flack lately for the ugly legal situation with Leah McSweeney and MOB, but this week's announcement of the upcoming Wackies collab is a nice reminder that the brand is still leading the pack when it comes to fresh and unexpected ideas in streetwear.

Over the years, Supreme has created numerous proper tributes to music's paradigm shakers. Supreme has collaborated with rappers like Raekwon, RZA, and Three 6 Mafia, along with jazz and soul musicians Miles Davis, Otis Redding, and Isaac Hayes. The catalog of music collabs is deep and impressive, the designs are inspired and always informed by a knowledge and passion for the history.

We've dug all the way through the Internet, searching forums, lookbooks, and old magazines to compile this History of Supreme's Music Collaborations.
