After teaming up with UNDERCOVER in September, streetwear staple Supreme is back with a new collaborator in mind. Today (Oct. 31), the clothing brand announced a new partnership with legendary Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki.

Initially photographing in the commercial industry, Araki became known for his diary-like photographs, which often focused around Japan’s underground sex industry and everyday life. In the duration of his career Araki has published over 350 books, making him one of the most prolific artists dead or alive throughout the world. In Supreme’s latest installment, Araki’s likening to Kinbaku–the Japanese art of bondage–appears to be the main focus.

The release will include a hoodie, long sleeve and short sleeve T-shirts, and a zine featuring original photography. This collection will become available starting Nov. 3 online and at Los Angeles, New York, London and Paris locations, while retailing in Japan beginning Nov. 5.
