The skateboard shop and clothing label founded by James Jebbia is no stranger to branded accessories, but every once in a while, Supreme drops some pretty strange stuff. Whether it’s a dog bowl or a literal brick, adding the iconic Futura logo to pretty much anything will have hypebeasts and resellers shelling out big bucks. So we thought it would be a good idea to showcase some of the strangest Supreme branded accessories ever made.
Because why the hell not? If you’re going to commit a crime, might as well do it in style, right? Jokes aside, the Supreme crowbar is a pretty popular item within the streetwear community. Measuring at a hefty eighteen inches, the steel piece has the phrase ‘Shit Happens’ etched on the front. Released as part of Supreme’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection, this is one of the weirdest but coolest accessories the brand has ever dropped.
Supreme Bolt Cutters
Next stop, we have a pair of Supreme bolt cutters. A piece that dropped as part of Supreme’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection, the bolt cutters are a pretty rare item. With the phrase ‘Help yourself’ written on the on the back, you can only imagine what the Supreme team were smoking when they came up with this.
Supreme x Simpson ‘Street Bandit’ Helmet
A collaboration with American motorsports parts supplier Simpson, the ‘Street Bandit’ helmet is one of Simpson’s most popular shapes, and Supreme really takes it to the next level. Painted in a vibrant shade of red, the helmet is one of Supreme’s weirdest but most useful accessories. Crafted from fibreglass, the ‘Street Bandit’ released as part of the Fall/Winter 2016 collection.
Supreme Dog Bowl
I have no idea why this even exists, but with Supreme, pretty much anything can happen. Giving man’s best friend some hypebeast love, the Supreme dog bowl is pretty much what it says on the tin. Released as part of their Spring/Summer 2011 collection, this dog bowl is available in both red and black colourways.
Supreme x Kidde Fire Extinguisher
When your outfit is just too hot and your sneakers are pure fuego, what you need is a Supreme fire extinguisher to cool off. Sold as part of Supreme’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection, this piece was made in collaboration with fire safety brand Kidde. We can only imagine how the phone call went down when Supreme approached Kidde on this.
Having seen Bruce Lee’s image on various Supreme items in the past, we all know that the brand is big into martial arts, so producing their own branded nunchucks as part of their Spring/Summer 2010 collection was a no brainer. The piece was even accompanied by a short promo video too.
Supreme Sand Timer
The phrase ‘time is money’ should definitely be used to describe this Supreme branded sand timer. It’s so random, yet, it makes us question why the brand has never done it before. Dropped as part of their Spring/Summer 2015 collection, the acrylic piece lasts two and a half minutes, which is much longer than the amount of time it took for these to sell out completely.
Supreme x Everlast Leather Heavy Bag
There is no doubt that the highlight of Supreme’s Spring/Summer 2016 collectionis a punching bag made in collaboration with Everlast. Rendered in the imprint’s signature colourway, the bag is constructed from high grade leather which provides long-lasting durability and functionality. Hypebeasts everywhere absolutely adore this piece, but that doesn’t stop it from making it to our list. Now, all Supreme has to do is release a pair of branded punching gloves. Wait, what? They’ve done that already? Never mind then.
Supreme Longevity Soup Set
We admit, Supreme’s Fall/Winter 2016 Longevity soup set is pretty cool and unique, but it’s still weird as hell. A dope take on traditional Chinese design, the set comes with a bowl as well as spoon. Whilst you probably won’t actually eat from this, it’s still a pretty cool accessory to have, and unlike Supreme’s other pieces, their branding is quite subtle here.
And last but not least, this is no doubt the weirdest thing Supreme has ever released. Although hypebeasts everywhere continually try to justify this accessory, the Supreme brick is pretty useless. Throughout this list we’ve featured motorcycle helmets, fire extinguishers, and even dog bowls, but at least there is some sort of rationale behind them. The Supreme brick is as pointless as the red lights in Grand Theft Auto, I mean, you can try build a house with them, but at $40 USD a pop, it would cost you around $5 million.
