After infiltrating the worlds of camping, music, and even BBQs, what’s next up on Supreme’s takeover list? Apparently, a Chicago storefront.
With multiple retail spaces fixated spanning from New York to Japan, Supreme is rumored to be opening its first brick-and-mortar in Chicago in Wicker Park, according to Supreme insider @dropsbyjay.
Though Supreme has yet to confirm the existence of the alleged new store, sources claim the streetwear behemoth’s Windy City location won’t open till later this year or at the top of 2023.
But wait, there’s more. Murmurs also suggested that the Virgil Abloh x Supreme “MCA” Box Logo t-shirt will release in conjunction with the Supreme Chicago opening.
Even more interesting, a Chief Keef photo tee — featuring the famed photo of the rapper wearing Abloh’s Supreme BOGO shirt — is also expected to accompany the unreleased collaborative tee.
If you recall, the image of Chief Keef flexing the rare BOGO tee first appeared in Abloh’s “Figures of Speech” installation at the Chicago’s MCA alongside a separate display of the actual Virgil Abloh x Supreme tee.
Following its MCA moment, the sample of the coveted tee – which sports an exclusive BOGO design inspired by the Pan-African flag — later surfaced on Duke’s Archive with a hefty price tag of $10k.
Now, it seems Supreme BOGO lovers may be getting their prayers answered, with the highly likely release of the “MCA” BOGO and Chief Keef photo tees in tandem with Supreme’s major expansion into Chicago.
The sought-after Virgil Abloh x Supreme tees may not be so rare soon, but it’ll indeed be a tough cop to score.
Given Supreme’s history with wild releases, a highly anticipated drop at the brand’s newest storefront will undoubtedly cause a hyped frenzy. Remember the Burberry drop?
