Earlier this month, a billboard popped up in West London teasing an alleged Corteiz x Supreme collaboration. The poster in question was painted in Supreme’s signature red hue and featured a reworked version of Corteiz’s Alcatraz-inspired logo. Nobody knew if this was the real deal or not, but it looks like we finally have all the answers we need.
Taking to Instagram to make the official announcement, the collection features a selection of oversized hoodies and T-shirts, all dipped in black and printed with the same co-branded motif that appeared on the billboard: Supreme Rules the World. Around the back, John Donne’s poem ‘No Man Is An Island’ appears in handwritten text, and it’s finished off with the New York City streetwear label’s box logo just below it.
Founded by British-Nigerian entrepreneur Clint (who is better known by Clint419), even though Corteiz has only been around for a mere six years, it has already gained an outrageously massive following. While this partnership seems kind of unexpected at first, the British brand is known for pulling stuff like this off.
Back in March, the Corteiz logo was projected on the front of Nike’s Oxford Street flagship. Considering both of these brands had beef in the past, everyone thought this was just a dig. It was later announced that the they were actually teaming up for the Corteiz x Nike Air Max 95, which would eventually become one of the most hyped sneakers of 2023.
The Corteiz x Supreme collection is set to drop on December 21 at an undisclosed location in London. It will then release later on Supreme’s webstore, and will be sold on a “first come, first serve” basis, with each person only being able to purchase one of each item. Something tells us that their first collab won’t be their last.
