History of Supreme
In April 1994, James Jebbia opened a store in Lafayette Street, Lower Manhattan, New York, United States. He named it Supreme because the name sounded cool to James Jebbia. In addition, he had no intention of making it a brand. But his store became extremely popular and eventually became a brand.
Supreme was initially founded as a skateboarding and riders’ clothing brand. In 2004, the brand opened its second store in North Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles. Additionally, the store was almost double the size of the first store in New York. Moreover, the store introduced people to an indoor skate bowl.
