Supreme has unveiled its newest line of branded things that throngs of people will skip school, call in sick, and wait in line for, its latest just-born assortment of highly coveted shiny objects that will inevitably be flaunted or re-sold. And this time, you might have to show them off in your kitchen.
The New York skateshop slash beyond-iconic fashion brand has released a preview of its fall/winter 2017 line, and buried among the logo-stamped hair clippers, collapsible shovels, snow sleds, inflatable blimps, and Fender Stratocasters are must-have kitchen items for the Millennial who craves to express his or her individuality with those recognizable white italic letters in a red box.
Sometimes, the cheap, wooden chopsticks from takeout sushi orders just don't cut it or adequately reflect your impeccable taste. If that's a recurring problem for you, consider these branded enamel chopsticks that come in a Supreme box, which would match perfectly with a matching ceramic sake set covered in Supreme logos.
Whether or not Supreme is trolling (in a surely very profitable manner) with these items in some sort of meta-commentary about fashion and capitalism remains unclear, but it's definitely a possibility.
Still, to the legions of hypebeasts for whom waiting in line for days and spending hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on knick-knacks is a way of life, owning red enamel chopsticks is evidently pretty "lit."
OK, relax, @flying fart noodle, and everyone else for that matter. Is it really worth waiting in line for hours you'll never get back to spend a bunch of dough on a sake set and box of chopsticks, when both of those items—albeit without the Supreme logo—are readily available for a fraction of the price in your local Chinatown?
Well, sure—you're a free to spend your money on whatever you want. But if all of that materialism starts wearing you down, just go with some supreme pizza nachos.
