Achievement
As the founder of Supreme, James Jebbia continues to hold his position as one of the most influential figures in streetwear. This year, Supreme’s popularity grew exponentially after teaming up with Louis Vuitton to drop one of the most buzzworthy collaborations of 2017. Bringing the worlds of traditional fashion and streetwear together in a collective frenzy, the collaboration represented the current fashion climate. To increase accessibility of the brand, Jebbia led the opening of the brand’s Brooklyn space. Meanwhile, the skate brand made headlines when a stake of the company was sold to The Carlyle Group, evaluating the company at $1 billion USD. 2019 will prove a definitive year for the brand as the implications of the sale manifest.
