Supreme x M.C. Escher Collaboration Takes on Fine Art and Mathematics

The Supreme x M.C. Escher collection will debut Thursday, May 6.

The Supreme x M.C. Escher collaboration features the work of acclaimed Dutch artist and graphic designer Maurits Cornelis Escher. The collab is part of Supreme’s Spring/Summer 2017 range.

The collaboration was first leaked online by Twitter user @MRBLD_ on Sunday, April 30. Today, the streetwear brand confirmed the speculations via an Instagram post.

The collab will feature a wide range of graphic t-shirts, shorts, outerwear, and accessories. Some notable pieces include the Supreme x  M.C. Escher trench coat as well as the Supreme x M.C. Escher baseball jersey (pictured above). Each piece will feature M.C. Escher’s mind-bending graphics, such as “Relativity”, seen on the bottom left of the upcoming trench coat.

For those unaware, Dutch artist M.C. Escher is known for his mathematically inspired prints and drawings. According to Wikipedia, the designer’s work often features impossible objects, explorations of infinity, reflection, and symmetry. Due to its eye-tricking nature, Escher’s artwork often appears on jigsaw puzzles and posters. Both Austria and the Netherlands have issued postage stamps commemorating Escher’s intricate artwork.

The collection drops Thursday, May 4, in London, Paris, Los Angeles, New York and online. It will also be available in Japan from Sunday, May 6.

Additionally, Supreme fans on Reddit speculate that the prices of the collection range anywhere between US$200 to US$300 (approx. S$279 to S$418). Those interested should keep an eye out for more news via Supreme’s website.
