Ever since opening its doors in 1994, Supreme has become a global phenomenon with stores in Europe, the United States, and Japan. Through the years, employees and other people in its orbit have come and gone, sometimes leaving to start off ventures of their own. This expansive infographic breaks down Supreme’s progeny and the myriad of labels whose stories are intertwined with their own..

Before the store opened on Lafayette Street, these labels and stores laid down the groundwork. This global community of like-minded brands and friends set the stage for the birth of Supreme, starting a movement towards graphic-driven labels that touched the worlds of skate, street, surf, and club culture, but encapsulated the rebellious spirit that ties them all together.

Plenty of talented people are attracted to the Supreme mystique, and the label has not just inspired a multitude of creatives to go out and do their own thing, but also empowered its staff to strike out on their own. These brands are cut from the cloth of current and former Supreme employees.

Skating is intrinsic to Supreme’s roots as an elevated skate shop, and from the start it has ingrained itself in skate culture, releasing multiple videos with director Bill Strobeck. Its current riders include names like Sean Pablo, Sage Elsesser, and Aiden Mackey, but plenty of other legends have pushed the pavement before them. Supreme-affiliated skaters have come and gone, but many of the brands they started post-Supreme are still around.

Supreme occupies such a unique space in street culture that many companies simply can’t help but be pulled into its orbit. These connections may be frail at best, but they’re still worth mentioning.
