At this point, it’s safe to say self-isolation is our new normal. Even if we hate those two words now. As many of us adapt to our new way of life, films have become a security blanket. They’re an immediate provider of escapism and tranquillity – which explains why everyone has been binge watching Netflix recently (the company has gained a staggering 15.8 million subscriptions since lockdown).
Brands are also starting to share film lists, and a myriad of different tutorials to lift up our spirits. Celine’s Hedi Slimane created a list for movie streaming site Mubi, and now Supreme is inviting its gargantuan community to stream some of their favourite films online, for free.
The brand is currently streaming Larry Clark’s 1995 cult film ‘Kids’, which in a very 2020 meta way, sees the cast (which includes none other than ultimate downtown It girl Chloë Sevigny) wearing Supreme themselves.
Larry Clark’s relationship with the brand didn’t end there though. He collaborated with Supreme a couple of times since the movie, particularly for the X-rated 2005 campaign as well as for a capsule collection in 2015, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film.
It might be 20 years since Kids was released, but its legacy still lives on. Feeling like channelling your inner skater? Click here.
