Collaboration With Pucci and Supreme is Finally Unveiled
Emilio Pucci and Supreme are teaming up for an exclusive collection. The ‘groovy’ capsule features a mixture of sporting attire, bright colors, and the iconic Pucci swirls. Following the collection between Louis Vuitton and Supreme in 2018, this new pairing seems like a good fit. From twill and sport jackets, soccer jerseys, and pants, there are also accessories and a Zippo lighter within the collection.
The patterns are reminiscent of the 1960s and 1970s, arguably the most iconic era of Emilio Pucci. Some of the key designs in the Supreme collaboration include Fantastia from 1970 and Tulipani from 1965. In recent years, Pucci has needed a modern revamp, and the new collaboration with Supreme is sure to skyrocket the brand to a new audience.
