20 years worth of Supreme items going up for auction this month.
One of the largest Supreme collections in the world, featuring more than 1,300 items released over 20 years, is going up for auction.
Longtime Supreme collector, Yukio Takahashi, showcased his expansive collection last year at the Jason Vass Gallery in Los Angeles - but now he's ready to part ways with the items he accumulated from 1998 to 2018.
According to Sotheby's, the online-only sale "The Supreme Vault: 1998 – 2018" is the most complete collection of Supreme accessories in private hands to auction, featuring a landmark archive interweaving luxury, art, and skate culture.
In regards to his epic Supreme collection and his thoughts on selling it off, Yukio Takahashi says,
“What makes Supreme’s accessories the most exciting part of their product line is its unpredictability, multifacetedness and genius choices in collaborations. I have enjoyed collecting Supreme for nearly a decade and the process and result have both surpassed expectations. Now it is complete to the best of my knowledge and is at a good stopping place. Once Sotheby’s was mentioned, I recognised there would be no better way to sign off. Exemplified by their NIGOLDENEYE® sale, the capabilities of Sotheby’s are second to none.”
"The Supreme Vault: 1998 – 2018" consists of a number of rare items including the Stern pinball machine, Everlast boxing series (including the heavy bag), Coleman Motorbike and the Fender Stratocaster.
The full collection will be on display in Honk Kong from May 24-28 at H Queen’s Hart Hall in Central. Bidding will be open from May 20, 10 am HKT – May 28, 11 am HKT.
