Back in July we broke the news that NYC streetwear legend Supreme would be opening its very own store in Paris. It seems the shop is now almost ready to open, as hoardings surround the retail unit – presumably to conceal the fitting of the store’s interior, which we know will contain artwork by the brand’s longtime affiliate Mark Gonzales.
The store is located in the heart of Paris’s Le Marais shopping district, and we expect it’ll open on February 18 to coincide with the launch of Supreme’s SS16 collection. The brand’s full line will be stocked at the location when it opens, and we imagine a special tricolore box logo tee will be produced to honor the occasion, too.
Update: Latest rumors suggest that the store will not be opening on February 18 with the rest of the Supreme stores, but rather a few weeks after.
Update II: We have confirmed today that Supreme Paris will in fact open its doors to the public on March 10, carrying the brand’s new Spring/Summer 2016 collection. Do you think the line will be as crazy as in New York City?
