Supreme took the wraps off its SS19 collection this week, and as has become tradition, the accessories section is a thirst trap of bizarre products for discriminating collectors.
Last season, the New York skate brand treated its rabid fanbase to a Santa Cruz Chameleon 27.5-inch bike, male and female anatomy models, inflatable chairs, a Virgin Mary blanket and “F**k You” trays, to name a few.
Just when you thought things could not get any weirder, the new season brings arguably Supreme’s wildest accessory to date: a Pearl Session Studio Select drum set and Zildjian cymbals.
The five-drum Pearl set comes with a 22-by-18-inch bass, 10-by-7- and 12-by-8-inch Toms, a 16-by-16-inch Floor Tom and a 14-by-5.5-inch snare with six-ply, 5.4-millimeter birch/African mahogany shells.
Supreme launched nearly 25 years ago in April 1994, and in recent years, the company has achieved a cult-following in Asia.
The brand is especially popular among millennials in China, where the lack of both physical and online stores has fans turning to resellers — and some others to fakes.
Below are other eye-catching accessories in SS19:
Supreme opens its SS19 collection in-stores on Feb. 21. An online release follows on Feb. 25. You can see the full preview here.
