Yesterday it emerged that New York hype juggernaut and skate legend Supreme was set to open a new retail location in Paris. Following the breaking news, we delved deep into the Highsnobiety grapevine and discovered that the new store will be located at 20 Rue Barbette in the heart of the city's Marais district.
We dispatched a photographer to get some exclusive snaps, which reveal that, much like the brand's London store, the unit is tucked away in a relatively quiet corner away from the hustle and bustle of Marais' main strip, perfect for those long pre-drop lineups that the brand is so accustomed to.
It is already confirmed that long-time collaborator Mark Gonzales (who outfitted the brand's London and Tokyo stores) will be creating sculptures for the store, and we assume the location will open with the launch of the Supreme Fall/Winter 2015 collection - but stay tuned for more news and an official announcement in the coming weeks.
[UPDATE] Our sources report that the store manager will be Samir Krim.
An earlier version of this piece incorrectly listed Kevin Rodrigues and Gregoire Cuadrado as working at the store. This information was updated at 15:00 CET.
