Supreme: the luxury brand
Those of us who were skating in the mid to late 90s, remember Supreme as a gritty NY skate company. Supreme was an irreverent brand that would always be underground – a brand that would bootleg a high fashion label’s logo, not collaborate with them.
That remained more or less true until 2017. When Supreme officially partnered with the French fashion brand Louis Vuitton. From that point on, Supreme has been at the forefront of not just streetwear, but also global fashion. For better or worse, that scrappy skate brand from 1994 will never be the same.
We’ve compiled some of the highest profile (& most expensive) collaborations Supreme has released as they’ve transitioned to a billion dollar super brand. Check out the list and let us know which lavish accessory tops your wishlist.
Supreme x Fender Stratocaster
Last year Supreme launched their first ever collaboration with the legendary guitar brand Fender. The model chosen was the iconic Stratocaster. As expected, the end product was a clean, minimal take on the classic guitar: bathed in white with a small box logo between the top two pickups. If you missed the initial release, resale will set you back around $5,000.
Supreme x Santa Cruz Mountain Bike
What’s better than a Santa Cruz Chameleon D+? Obviously one with a Supreme logo glistening down the side. Underneath that beautiful logo, there is still a primo Santa Cruz mountain bike, complete with RockShox 130mm forks, SRAM drivetrain & brakes, and 27.5” Maxxis Rekon tires. This bike can actually be taken on a trail if needed, but a better use of it might be for flexing on Instagram. The only accessory missing from this collab is a Supreme Bike Lock and GPS kit so it doesn’t get stolen.
Supreme x Pearl Studio Drum Set
Supreme surprised fans with another peculiar collaboration with the Japanese multinational company Pearl. Primarily known for their percussion instruments, Pearl had never ventured into the streetwear scene. The instrument itself is not atypical; it functions the same as any other Pearl drum set. Where it differs, quite obviously, is the signature white lettering over a bold and daring red background. The branding has a metallic finish which adds a delicate sheen to the drums. Currently, the resale on this unique item is upwards of $20,000.
Supreme x Honda CRF 250R
Built exclusively for the NY designer brand, this Honda dirt bike is competition spec and track-ready. The CRF 250R has a beefy spring fork for improved handling, launch control, and plenty of power – you just have to keep it off road. Luckily the brands share a signature color so the paint job was easy. The collab is finished off with the Supreme’s wordmark on the sides, fork, and number plate. Because this bike just dropped, we’ve not seen much resale activity. The bikes that do make it to the secondary market could see price tags from $15 – $20k.
Supreme x Stern Pinball Machine
The creative minds at Supreme decided to collab with the famed Pinball machine maker, Stern. The result of this odd pairing is absolutely magnificent! Stern Pinball is known for bringing pinball machines back from the dead by collaborating with everyone from AC/DC to the Marvel Universe. Usually, Stern Pinball machines are laden with details throughout the cabinet, but the simple and bold Supreme logo provides a clean and striking finish to the design. Originally thought to be an in-store item only, Supreme made a few of the total 100 or so produced available for online purchase so everyone could have a chance at this grail.
Supreme x Louis Vuitton Skate Deck
Released with the coveted Supreme x Louis Vuitton collection, this is one of the most coveted skate decks Supreme has dropped. This was no ordinary skateboard… it was released with a custom Louis Vuitton trunk similar in design to the Malle Courrier. With a retail price well beyond $50k, it’s not likely many of these boards ever saw a skatepark. As with the rest of the collection, the deck and accessories were dressed in an all-over LV pattern, accentuated with a box logo. Current resale on the set ranges from $150k – $250k.
Supreme x Louis Vuitton Malle Courrier Trunk
This goes down in history as one of the rarest and priciest Supreme collab pieces of all time: the Louis Vuitton x Supreme Malle Courrier Trunk. The Trunk is the icing on the cake for one of the most talked about Supreme collabs in history. One thing that had people talking were the astronomical prices for the entire collection, and the Malle Courrier Trunk price tag holds true to form. The trunks were made to order, bespoke pieces, meaning each one was hand made, and therefore considered a “One of One”. Manufacturing and distribution for the collab was orchestrated by Louis Vuitton to ensure that every piece – adorned with Supreme monograms embossed in the signature Louis Vuitton leather – was held to the highest quality control standards.
