Supreme X Popeye
First The Hundreds with Garfield, now Supreme rewind the kiddy clock with their Popeye collaboration. Known for his love of spinach and flexing his bulging muscles, Popeye has become synonymous with US popular culture, no doubt due in part to sneaker head Robin William's interpretation in the 1980 flick. The collection will consist of an M-65 Military Jacket, Hooded Pullover Sweatshirt and a T-Shirt and Beanie available in two colorways. On sale December 16th.
Popeye the Sailor is a fictional hero notable for appearing in comic strips and animated films. He was created by Elzie Crisler Segar and first appeared in the daily King Features comic strip Thimble Theatre. Popeye has now become the strip's title as well.
In 1941, with World War II becoming more of a source of concern in the United States, Popeye was enlisted into the U.S. Navy. Over the years, Popeye has become a icon amongst the U.S. Military branches of service, often represented in drawings on airplanes, helmets, garments and tattoo's.
