Frankly, we can’t recall the last time someone said wearing Supreme looked sexy. Then of course there’s always the exception of Lady Gaga adding water to a white box logo tee as proof that it’s entirely possible for this grail to be classified as such. *Taking notes to just add water to everything.* Whilst being a human sponge sounds like an implausible styling tip for most, Supreme has finally taken steps to address this missing sexiness for its label which you didn't realise was a topic of contention until about 17 seconds ago. Tapping on the art work of the late master of Japanese erotica Toshio Saeki (he recently passed away in January), Supreme has patched some of his best work on chore jackets, hoodies, and pants. This treasure trove of erotic art is a reminder of Saeki’s brilliance as a social commentator on sex and sexuality which are often taboo topics in Asian culture. His version of erotica wasn’t what one might assume as straight-up smut; he infused his sense of wit into his drawings in a bid to normalise the subject matter and his underground works often introduced netherworld themes as proof of his vivid imagination. And we don't have to tell you that at one time, these were better than an OnlyFans subscription (and it probably still is). The collection is available now.
