Acclaimed British fashion photographer David Sims has partnered with the iconic skate brand, Supreme, for a new book appropriately titled Supreme.

The book contains 64 pages of color photos shot in the studio, on the streets of New York city, and includes personal, candid shots from Sims’ own collection. The project focuses mostly on members of Supreme’s NYC skate team, including Tyshawn Jones, Sage Elsesser, Sean Pablo, and Aidan Mackey.

Sims rose to fame in the early ’90s while shooting for fashion mags like i-D, The Face, and Arena, gaining attention for his stark interpretation of glamour. More recently, Sims shot Miley Cyrus for Marc Jacobs’ spring 2014 campaign depicting quite possibly the most doomed beach party ever as well as Alexander McQueen’s fall 2015 campaign.

David Sims will be on hand tonight to sign copies of Supreme at Dashwood Books, 33 Bond Street, from 6-8PM.
