Supreme founder James Jebbia was named Menswear Designer of the year last night at the CFDA Fashion Awards ceremony held at New York City’s Brooklyn Museum. Clad in a sleek grey suit, the streetwear maven walked to the podium and was handed a silver trophy for the big accomplishment. Moments later, he delivered a humble speech, having plainly expressed: “I’ve never considered Supreme to be a fashion company, or myself a designer, but I appreciate the recognition for what we do.”

View the speech in action below — along with acceptance speeches from Ralph Lauren and Raf Simons — and let us know your thoughts. In case you missed it, here are the full list of CFDA Awards winners.
