There's probably already a line around the block at Noho's cult skate-shop Supreme. The reason: Brooklyn painter and sculptor Robert Longo, who hit his career head-on in the 1980's and has shown no signs of slowing down, has reinterpreted three of his creations for the Lafayette Street shop. Influenced heavily by mass media (he even shot a recent Bottega Veneta campaign), Longo gained a new generation of followers with his series "Men in the Cities," portraying dapper businessmen and -women in various states of movement.
Launching today, the Supreme Spring/Summer 2011 series by Longo will be available both online and in-store, with an April 9 launch for those in Japan. From Gaga to Longo, it seems like Supreme has been collaborating with everyone lately. Now, let's see if they're going to cover up those Gaga ads with some black-and-white Longo footage.—Yale Breslin
