Don’t let the name of the print fool you, as the new collab from Supreme x Vans x Andres Serrano is cooler than you’d expect.
Supreme x Vans x Andres Serrano
Earlier this week, the preview of the Supreme and Vans collab kicks made its way online, which gave the world its first look at the Blood and Semen Pack.
So, how did the collab get its name? The Supreme x Vans Blood And Semen Pack is a part of a capsule collection, which features the artwork of photographer Andres Serrano, who is known as one of the most controversial artists in modern art.
That reputation came from his past pieces, such as the Piss Christ photograph, which is one of his most infamous images. Serrano is known for creating one-of-a-kind images out of unorthodox materials, which obviously includes religious iconography and bodily fluids, which is inspired by his strict Roman Catholic upbringing.
For the collab, Supreme and Vans chose to go with one of Serrano’s most infamous works, his Blood and Semen series. The Supreme x Vans x Andres Serrano pack includes the Vans Old Skool, Vans Chukka and the Vans Sk8-Hi. All three of the models come with a print from one of Serrano’s images, entitled “Blood and Semen II.” The print is paired up with black accents throughout the upper while sitting on top of a white vulcanized sole.
It’s not just kicks, though, as the capsule collection also includes apparel from Supreme. The collection is now on sale.
