𝐒𝐮𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐞 : A recap of the versatile accessories from the SS20 collection
With Supreme we’ve grown accustomed to fantasy-level product collaborations; their link up with haute couture-beast 𝘓𝘰𝘶𝘪𝘴 𝘝𝘶𝘪𝘵𝘵𝘰𝘯 went down as one of the most coveted fashion collabs of the decade, and similar pairings with Playboy and the sunglass empire Oakley can’t be far behind. For their Spring/Summer 2020 accessories though, the NYC street legends have abandoned the common conception of a fashion collaboration. In it’s place we get Supreme red OREOs, a BMX bike made in partnership with S&M Bikes & a fully loaded MAC Tools workstation.
The accessories for the collection began to drop in February and have slowly been unveiled since in typical Supreme fashion. The brand’s founder James Jebbia is something of a marketing guru, continually working the iconic Supreme brand into unrelated products that yield a hefty price tag. This trend has split the internet down the middle; on one side you have die-hard supporters who salivate at any drop with a smidge of the Supreme iconography, and the other is a sour mob of people who will jump at any chance to tell you you’re being ripped off. With the Supreme Mac workstation coming in a price tag of $8,800 USD, perhaps an argument can be made on either side.
Additional accessories teased in the drop include a Supreme x Numark turntable in the signature red, a collaborative pair of Leica binoculars, a set of Polaroid photos branded by Supreme with FUJIFILM and various towels and jewelry. Originally retailing for $8/cookie through Supreme, you can now find their OREO cookies on ebay at a resale price of anywhere around $20,000/pack and upwards; that’s almost $7k per cookie.
