Married To The Mob Vs. Supreme

MarriedtotheMob1 540x359 Married To The Mob Vs. Supreme

So the throw down between Supreme and Married to the Mob has officially blown up. For those of you looking to catch up, the story broke Monday with a New York Mag story detailing Supreme’s decision to sue Leah McSweeney, founder and owner of Married to the Mob over use of the Supreme Bitch logo for infringing upon trademark rights. Here’s an excerpt:

[Leah McSweeney's] first T-shirt was a sort of homage: supreme bitch written in the Supreme (via Kruger) style. Jebbia carried the shirts in Union, another store he owned. As Supreme’s fortunes multiplied, so did Supreme Bitch. Rihanna posted pictures of herself in a Supreme Bitch cap. Karmaloop and Urban Outfitters have sold Supreme Bitch items. In January, McSweeney took what would be a normal step for an upstart clothing label: She filed a trademark application for Supreme Bitch. Two months later, Supreme sued McSweeney for $10 million and demanded she remove the offending items from retailers.

Also worthy reads for further detail: Complex breaks down the lawsuit; A statement from Leah McSweeney; Gabriella from Miss weighs in on legalities; and Barbara Kruger, the original artist who inspired the Supreme logo, responds with an epic description: “Cluster fuck of totally uncool jokers.” (And yes, there’s already a tee shirt!)

You guys who follow us know we have always supported McSweeney. She basically epitomizes the spirit of what we consider to be a Snobette chick. Plus we have always been committed to fierce independent female entrepreneurs and that is McSweeney to a tee. That said we have no idea how this case is going to work out. It’s pretty impressive that famed civil rights attorney Norman Siegal has chosen to take on the case, that is for sure.

And maybe we’re biased but we do think from a public sentiment perspective this was a major misstep on Supreme’s part and a pulling back of a curtain that is going to expose a side of the company it’s done a very good job of hiding over the years. All legalities aside, from a strictly streets perspective you don’t bless Supreme Bitch when the scene is in its youthful we’re-all-in-this-together-non-money-hungry phase, but then decide nine years later when you only care about making more millions that, wait a second, it’s not okay, Imma crush you like a bug. Especially when so much of your brand has been built on thieving and copying in order to make you seem cool and edgy. Because of that this is a public relation’s nightmare for Supreme (and comments on the various sneaker boy blogs bear this out). We have mixed feelings about Supreme, but basically we’re like, ’bout time, this take down was a long time coming. And hahaha, they should’ve known better than to take on McSweeney ’cause that bish NEVER backs down from a fight nor does she ever give an eff or let anyone intimidate her.

And beyond the specifics of this fight, mark my words this case marks a turning point for streetwear as we know it. It’s the end of an era and an entering into a new phase, people, with Supreme leading the charge. And no it’s not a pretty or nice one. Sort of sad but this is how these things work.

Supreme x Vans 1 Vans x Supreme Rose Pack For Spring/Summer 2013
The first Vans x Supreme collab for 2013 will make you wish we were going into Summer all over again! A few weeks ago we showed you Supreme’s lookbook for Spring/Summer 2013 in which the brand released pants and sweaters in one of the most well executed floral prints of recent times. New Order fans rejoiced, as the print itself was taken from the album artwork to Power, Corruption and Lies designed by Peter Saville.

“…utilizing original album artwork from New Order’s iconic 1983 release Power, Corruption & Lies. The album’s cover was designed by English art director Peter Saville and incorporates the 19th century painting “A Basket of Roses” by French artist Henri Fantin-Latour.

The sneakers drop instore and online March 7th.

Get a more detailed look on the sneakers after the jump.

SupremeKateMoss 540x352 Supreme x Kate Moss Spring 2012

In its Spring 2012 poster campaign, Supreme hints at an upcoming collabo with Kate Moss. This won’t be her first time working with the brand that’s as iconic as she is, and based on previous demand you can bet any tee with her name attached to it will be coveted to the extreme and next to impossible to own.

p.s. Just back on red eye from Las Vegas, will be attending a couple of shows today while SGP continues to document Project.

Video: Lady Gaga X Supreme X Richardson Behind The Scenes

21 February 2011, 16.19 | Posted in Designer Collaboration, Music, celebrity | 4 comments »

First there were the images for Purple magazine and now of course the behind-the-scenes video, which, not surprisingly given it includes Richardson and Lady Gaga–who no doubt bring out the “best” in each other–exudes a depraved vibe. And message to whomever let his/her toddler get within 15 feet of this sexually-charged photoshoot, you might want to put your common sense thinking cap on next time. And no, there’s nothing wrong with your computer, the audio has been disabled. Via HS.

Lady Gaga is snapped by Terry Richardson for Purple magazine. She’s rocking a white bodysuit and Hermes bag tagged with the Supreme label–have no idea what that’s about and Hermes collaborating with Supreme seems highly unlikely, but ya never know! In other Gaga news, the first, fuzzy shot of her U.S. Vogue cover have hit the internets and you can spy that here.
