Supreme x Nan Goldin Collection

Cult label Supreme has teamed up with iconic photographer Nan Goldin on a new collection for the brand.  The cult streetwear brand, which has collaborated with Damien Hirst and David Lynch, is now working with the artist who chronicled 1980s New York, with her work exploring LGBT bodies, the HIV crisis and the opioid crisis.  “I did this for the kids,” she said. “I’m looking forward to seeing teenagers skating on my images and wearing them. To my mind, people have become so conservative, especially the millennials – its like the 1960s never happened – so I like the idea of them being exposed to my real world.”  The collection includes images from Goldin’s 1986 The Balled of Sexual Dependency and will be used on new T-shirts, hoodies and skateboards.  “Nan Goldin’s work is real and raw – in the time, places and subject matter she shot,” says Supreme. “It comes from an era where the subjects she documented were taboo by society’s standards. To do this project with Nan Goldin is to celebrate the diversity her work represents and expose young people to it.”
