Supreme’s Porcelain Cupid Figurine Will Steal Hearts
One of the buzziest pieces from the upcoming Supreme S/S 19 collection (dropping tomorrow) is a ceramic figurine. Designed in collaboration with European porcelain manufacturer Meissen, the fragile piece seems to be the latest novelty collector’s item from the legacy skate brand. To further fuel the hype around the latest drop, the brand shared a video that showed exactly how the statue is made, from preparing the material itself to hand-painting the ornament. The new decorative statue in correction depicts Cupid wearing a Supreme t-shirt (!!!) and piercing an arrow through a heart, possibly a metaphor for how the New York-brand continues to woo a generation of skaters, streetwear enthusiasts, fashion insiders, and all those in between. It’s rumored to cost over $3000.
