Mention Supreme to anyone and you’ll either get a blank look or a knowing smile. Yes, it’s THE brand that produces the most bizarre accessories and it’s something you either love, or hate. As for myself, I’m pretty new to Supreme, and began my collection a couple years back when I paid a premium to get some cool accessories (actually just a Supreme-branded hand grip and some badges) at a reseller store in Tokyo. I even queued (I don’t queue. Period) in the rain when I was in New York City last year in November just to get some goodies. It’s almost a quest of sorts. You know those apartments with Hello Kitty-branded everything? I want mine to be branded with everything Supreme. Get it?
And while I was fortunate to get some pieces from their F/W16 collection, I have my doubts regarding scoring anything from their upcoming S/S17 collection, especially with Louis Vuitton’s latest collaboration that must have surely made the brand more ‘mainstream’ than ever before. Still, I’m hopeful, and some of the pieces I want include what you see above, from Supreme-branded metal storage boxes (oh yes!) to a stool from Artek Aalto. There is the the pills ceramic tray, the beaded curtain (yes, crazy, I know) and even the pocket measuring tape that are definitely must-haves.
Now excuse me while I go plot hard on how to make it even possible and please wish me (and my wallet) luck.
