Charles Bukowski ... American writer, born 1920, died in 1994.

He witnessed the dark side of America of his day. Alcohol, odd jobs, brothels, precarious. 
He writes about life, his life in the 50, 60, 70, 80 ... He wrote the vice and poverty, which makes his work timeless. 
And we know that time is often the judge of art, whether in cotton or in a book.

A "raw" man, as we like at Supra. 
A man who wrote his best lines drunk on his old Underwood. 
A man who does not care about fashion but had a style. His style.

A symbol of virility "unwashed". 
With the most extreme defects, vulgar and embittered. 
But proud, honest and uncompromising.

Some like, some do not ...



Here's a new brand we found out a while ago : Balder Collective.
No, sorry.....to be honest they found us....
It's the kind of brand that we like here at Supra-Quintessence :
nice people, Norvegian Brand that only produce in Europe and a nice philosophy.
They are wishing to reinvent and redefine the Scandinavian values
within design, craftsmanship and materials.
Their vision is to make use of Nordic cultural heritage and its craftsman traditions. 
In order to create
viable clothing in noble materials with a refined finish  for the modern man, with a wish to signal
simplicity, honesty and strength.

Soon online at Supra-Quintessence.
