Ho was an obvious choice to model the latest Supreme collaboration for Cosmopolitan China. Not only is she a globally recognized supermodel and influencer, she’s an entrepreneur with her own lifestyle line, Sweat The Style, which fuses “technical performance with a high-fashion sensibility.”
If you want to cop the t-shirt Ho’s wearing in the spread, you might check eBay, though be sure you’re paying for an authentic Supreme x COMME des GARÇONS garment.
Or, if you’re traveling to China, you can shop at The Roots, owned and operated by Hu Peng aka Hood P. Peng opened The Roots last year just one block from the I.T. Beijing Market. Inside, you will find racks and racks of iconic Supreme gear (all authentic, with tags, and in the signature white bag with red boxed logo). Peng began collecting Supreme gear about a decade ago, and wanted more than to resell the goods online, but rather to cultivate a culture for the brand in China.
Peng tells Racked, “Supreme is the only brand that makes me think it’s out to promote a culture, not just itself. I know fashion can change, but the roots of a tree cannot change, and I believe the roots of Supreme are the roots of street culture, and I want this shop to be the root of street culture in Beijing.”
In September, Adrianne Ho visited The Roots to borrow clothes for a shoot with GQ China. No word yet if Peng will be carrying the Supreme x COMME des GARÇONS t-shirt, but all signs are pointing to yes.
