1997 Supreme “Banana” Tee

Supreme “Banana” Tee
Year: 1997


Thanks to @jengel1992 for sending in the picture! Showing the influence that music and pop culture in general had on Supreme, they released the “Banana” tee in 1997 that featured the banana graphic from the 1967 album “The Velvet Underground & Nico” by.. well, The Velvet Underground and vocalist Nico. Making this the debut album for both The Velvet Underground and Nico. The cool thing about the early release of the LP is that you could pull off the Banana peel sticker from the cover to expose a peeled banana. All album artwork was handled by Andy Warhol who played a crucial part in the success of The Velvet Underground and also served as one half of the production for this album.
