Supreme x Popeye Collection
Following our initial preview of this latest project of great interest from New York based Supreme, here is a further insight to the project based on Popeye. Consisting of an M-65 jacket, hoodie, tee and wool hat each combining the U.S.N. motif alongside the iconic animation character. Created by Elzie Crisler Segar and first appeared in the daily King Features comic strip Thimble Theatre. Popeye has now become the strip’s title as well. In 1941, with World War II becoming more of a source of concern in the United States, Popeye was enlisted into the U.S. Navy. Over the years, Popeye has become a icon amongst the U.S. Military branches of service, often represented in drawings on airplanes, helmets, garments and tattoo’s. The Supreme x Popeye collection will be available from Supreme in-store and online from December 16th while the Japan stores will receive the line on December 18th.
