In 2016 Supreme worked together with British artist and the Smiths lead singer, Morrissey. The famous lead singer became prominent in music culture during the beginning of the 80’s. After the group splitted up in 1987, Morrissey worked on his own solo carreer reaching the top 10 multiple times during this period.
The images of the then 55 year old morrissey were shot in october 2015 by Terry Richardson.
However, a few months later Morrissey filed a legal caution not to use the images.
The reasoning behind this being the fact that the Supreme brand was partly sponsored by White Castle, a beef sandwich company.
Despite the legal threats sent out by Morrissey, the collaboration was not cancelled and we saw this long awaited photo t-shirt hit the shelves for SS 16.
All t-shirts were sold out in a few seconds and will forever remain as the photo t-shirt that wasn’t supposed to be.
All items are shipped with tracking within 48 hours.
