'Supreme Reality' Showcases London Fruit Vendor & Supreme Fanatic Lance Walsh
The “bright designs” remind him of exotic fruit.
Around this same time last year, we shined the spotlight on Lance Walsh, aka @Dinneranddance, a London fruit vendor and Supreme connoisseur known for selling goods outside of Supreme’s Soho, London location. “I’ve owned my fruit store off Berwick Street, Soho for 30 odd years,” Walsh originally told us. “I started to collect Supreme clothing about 3-4 years ago.” Now, filmmaker and visual artist Lucie Beecham has put together a short documentary that examines Lance Walsh’s journey, his work, and day-to-day life.
Fittingly-titled Supreme Reality, Beecham’s project takes viewers to Walsh’s fruit stand and allows his own words to narrate and guide the piece. “I came down to the market when I was about 10, with my dad. On the weekend he used to sell sheepskin coats on Berwick Street,” Walsh explains. “I was on the flower store for about 15 years. Then, afterwards, I wanted to get my own store doing exotic fruits. There weren’t many people around there that used to do it, and I knew it I could get more money doing that than apples and oranges.” The rest is a unique, interesting part of fashion and food history; as Walsh himself explains, things that are “different” have a tendency to “stand out more.”
“I just got a hat at first, then I used to get bits each week,” Walsh tells viewers, elaborating on his love for Supreme. “I like the little different, bright designs; it reminds me of an exotic fruit. I don’t get anything that’s not practical for me, doesn’t matter what it is. I wear mine every day, some of those people are just buying it to resell it or wear it once.”
