Auction house Sotheby’s has released the results of an online auction of one-of-a-kind Supreme items ranging from boxing gloves made in collaboration with Everlast to Coleman mini bikes. The sale realised a total of HK$2 million (about US$255,000). Named The Supreme Vault: 1998-2018, the sale, which lasted from May 24 to May 28, featured 1,300 objects from the private collection of US collector Yukio Takahashi. The top lot was led by a Supreme Stern Pinball Machine, which sold for HK$562,500. Given Supreme’s popularity with street wear aficionados, it’s not surprising that more than 70 per cent of bidders were new to Sotheby’s and that 75 per cent of the bidders were under 40. Reflecting the way this younger demographic shops, more than 50 per cent of bidding occurred on mobile phones. The street wear label, which was founded by James Jebbia as a skateboarding shop in downtown New York in 1994, has a cult following and its loyal fans camp out in front of its stores to be the first to buy new products. This is not the first time an auction house has sold rare Supreme pieces. Last year, French auction house Artcurial held a Supreme sale that generated a whopping US$1 million. That auction, however, featured extremely rare accessories from a Supreme collaboration with Louis Vuitton, none of which were available at Sotheby’s.
