BOOM!! SUPREME LOGO & STICKERS

就像我說的,收集這件事就跟強迫症一樣...

有些朋友問我為何寫得這麼認真每次發佈的文章都詳細地像論文
我也不知道怎麼解釋。應該就是跟強迫症一樣吧


這次整理的包含由Freshness所做的一個特輯和kopbox的嘔心瀝血收集
當下看到這篇文章和這個網站,內心不由自主地激動了一下
我也喜歡貼紙、也做貼紙、也收集貼紙。但他真的病入膏肓

那文章我就從(假)設計角度切入
問一個平面設計師最喜愛的logo,我想Supreme不難出現在其中
Supreme的logo由大名鼎鼎的Futura所設計,19年不變(看這有多難)
簡單的兩色設計,白色的Supreme字樣乾淨的壓在鮮紅色的方框上
就像警告或標語等等,指令般要你一眼就能辨認

如果你是設計師,Barbara Kruger這個名字你應該要知道
這兩件事很容易且很明顯的聯想在一起
在此我就不偏離主題太遠

'I Shop therefore I am' by Barbara Kruger

雖然說Supreme logo 19年沒變
但在這19年間,不斷地藉由每次的合作與設計,加入了許多新的設計
顏色的變化、語言的使用、蛇紋、翻玩、聯名等等
都為這Supreme logo帶來了不同的感覺

短暫的介紹完Supreme box logo後
這位Clarence Nathan收集Suprem貼紙超過14年,現為Premium Goods的老闆
透過照片來看看這位大哥他從1980末開始的收藏

Clarence Nathan’s Supreme sticker collection shot at the Freshness office on April 29th, 2009.

Clarence從1987年就開始收集貼紙
一開始當然並沒有太強迫地要收集,所以貼掉了一些
但後來他意識到這些貼紙不會再出版第二次,因此就踏上了這條路

My first set of Supreme stickers. Original Box Logos in 4 colors.
I have never seen anyone else with these or Supreme stickers that pre-date these.



他當然也收集了許多其他滑板品牌的貼紙
這四個是他最初收集的貼紙Original Box Logos
並不是像近期Supreme box的大小,而是更小的且還帶著白色的邊與R角
他從來沒有看過任何人有這些

之所以後來專注在收集Supreme貼紙
第一個原因是因為Supreme貼紙有趣在他們只會出一次
第二個原因是,最初Supreme貼紙只有在NYC Lafayette St shop才能買到
所以要得到這些貼紙,必須親自跑一趟店裡去買

2nd oldest Supreme Box logo stickers. These are made of paper and don’t hold up well outdoors.
Camouflage, Yellow/Blue, White/Silver, Blue/White, Red/White, Black/Silver, Red/Silver, Green/Black.
There were also mini versions of the last 2.


剛開始他就像紐約裡唯一一個人有收集貼紙的興趣
而且Supreme從來沒有販售,店員都會給有消費的人一到兩張貼紙
其他滑板公司的貼紙通常會賣個50分到一塊錢
所以剛開始他很容易的就得到這些貼紙
加上他與元老Gio Estevez等人熟識又常在店裡鬼混...
這些是第二老的Supreme box logo貼紙,而且是紙的貼紙,非常不易保存

Supreme x LV. [2000] White/Brown, Black/White, Brown/Tan.

這款LV貼紙是Clarence中比較有回憶的
當初這款LV的板身剛到貨不久,便被美國海關與LV的人員用卡車載走並且銷毀

問到有沒有賣過任何一張,Clarence說剛始可能有一張、兩張
現在他只會給那些像他一樣真正喜愛欣賞這些貼紙的人
Clarence除了主要收集貼紙之外,他也收藏Supreme camp hats五分割帽和板身

In the subculture that Freshness has been writing about the past few years, much of the topics involve collecting or collectibles. There are many types of collectors and our friend Clarence Nathan collects Supreme stickers, while some have started to collect them in recent years as the Supreme ‘box logo’ became a valuable collectible, Clarence has been collecting them for over 14 years.

I’ve known Clarence sometime and have seen him many times in and around the Supreme area. I knew he had a history with Supreme and even thought he worked there at one point, he never did. Recently, Clarence sent an email and said that he wanted to show his Supreme sticker collection and that he had a lot. When he showed up at our office and started to pull out his collection, I was completely blown away by what he has collected over the years. Click through below for his recount of collecting stickers since the late 80s and a photo journey through his collection of Supreme stickers.

We’ve known each other for several years now, what led to your decision approaching us [Freshness] to showcase your collection.
There are 3 reasons why I approached Freshness to have my collection shot.
1- Freshness was the first US based sneaker culture blog if i remember correctly in 2002 when i first opened my shop.
2- You guys were based out of Brooklyn.
3- I saw the Slam Jam post online and i wanted to do it right and really show as many stickers as possible so the heads can see a large selection of Supremestickers. No disrespect to SJ but so many people who are familiar with my collection always beg me to document what I have. I think they feel like I’m going to wake up one day and sell it all for nothing without ever showing it off. (Shout out to Leo/Starks Laces)

When did you start collecting stickers?
I started collecting stickers in 1987 from hanging out at Soho Skates(shout out to Ann Z.) when they were on 6 Ave in 987. I used to skate with all the old heads.. Bruno, Jeremy, Aly, Beasley(RIP), Mario, Jumunji, Eli… etc. My dude Martin(most of you know as the 1st NYC Bape Store manager) gave me a ton of stickers my last day in the city before heading off to college. Most of these got plastered on my trunk and that initial collection was lost. While at college in Atlanta, GA around 1992 i got back into collecting. I would hit up the only skate shop in town Stratosphere and the rest is history.

Why stickers?
No particular reason. I was mainly into the graphics and I knew there was a high turn over because so many skate companies came and went during this era. Eventually I started to realize that some of these stickers would never be made again because of this.

Why the focus on Supreme?
Well to be honest I have all kinds of stickers from different skateboard, surf and shoe companies. Between 1992-1995 i was collecting skate stickers from all over the country and world if I traveled outside of the US. When I did the rollerblading thing in 1995 i would stop by Supreme and peep the glass case where they had the stickers laid out. They had tons of stickers by other brands like most skate shops do so I would literally buy 1 of each… sorry Gio. I was buying and collecting ALL skate company stickers at this point. The first Supreme set i got was the 4 mini logos in blue, green, black and gray all with a white outline. The current box logo size wasn’t standard at this point. The interest in Supreme stickers was sparked because they only made stickers once. The 2nd reason is that Supreme stickers were only sold in NYC at the Lafayette St shop so the only way to get their stickers was to actually go to the shop and buy them. Remeber this was way before eBay, NikeTalk, InStyle Shoes and other streetwear blogsites sites who focused more on sneakers.

Your collection includes a stack of certain editions, why and how did you get so many?
Well for me it was a combo of things. I was accepted by the original Supreme crew (Gio Estevez, Pooky and Chappy). They allowed me to hang out and be apart of their scene. From 1995-1997 there was a major after hours scene in the back of Supreme each night. I would hang out in the back of the shop with all the staff and the homies. Here is where I met peoples like Ari Marcopulous, Keenan Milton(RIP), Huf, the Keefe brothers, Justin Pierce(RIP), Ssur, Jakuan 360, Peter Bici, Kareem Campbell, Aron, Jamie Story, Fred Gall, Stash, Futura, Lee and Dondi. It was mad ill. Anyway… Supreme stickers at this time weren’t a commodity as it is nowadays so when they were released I would get what I wanted because there was no resell market and the demand was low. It’s like i was the only person in NYC interested in collecting stickers. Also the Supreme stickers were NEVER for sale. Shoppers were given 1 or 2 by the staff at their discretion. As for stickers by other companies usually about cost 50¢ to $1. So I would just pay outright for them or do a trades. Dude I remember when box logo tee shirts would be on the tee shelf for weeks at a time. That’s how it was back then.

What’s your favorite box logo sticker?
I can’t say that I like any one more than the rest but I will tell you this… I do APPRECIATE the LV stickers because my dumbass slept on the LV decks. When they dropped I was hanging out at the Supreme warehouse on vestry street like 3 days a week. The decks just arrived and they had a lot of in all 3 colors. So I was like ‘ima come back and get my set’. The next time I went back the rack was empty and Frankie told me that US customs and LV officials came down and trucked all of the decks to Staten Island to be incinerated. I’m was so tight. So I can appreciate the LV stickers because it’s a constant reminder of me sleeping. Now I NEVER sleep! I kind of like the black/white box logo the best since it’s SO rare that they would do a solid color sticker other than red/white. I only have 2 of those stickers. On page 5 you see the original box logos in solids but that’s it. Now they seem to only make the classic red/white.

Will you ever sell any?
Nah. Maybe 1 or 2 here or there but… In time I will figure out what to do with them. I will give some to those that TRULY appreciate these stickers as much as I do.

What else do you collect?
Right now I mainly collect Supreme stickers, Supreme camp hats(5 panels) and Supreme decks. I dibble dabble in collecting art as well. I slowed down on the sneakers, Supreme backpacks and toys.

Anyone you want to thank in making this all happen?
Hell yea! First off James and Maryann for starting Union which led to Stussy that gave birth to Supreme. Without them so many of the current brands/stores would not exist… myself included. Gio Esteves, Pooky, Chappy, Aron, Chris Gibbs, Ryan Hickey, Alex Corporan, Frankie, Brendon, Geoff, Augie, Jakuan and Martin. //

後記
看完kopbox和Clarence的收藏,除了財力雄厚外
就是強迫症阿...
這些貼紙不只是收藏,也代表一段過程
從開始到現在,時間的變化
其實挺有趣的

藉由這篇文章我也把我一點點的收藏挖出來拍照,做個紀念
我好像也沒有特地去買貼紙,很多都是免費、或是朋友送的
其中有許多貼紙也像Clarence一樣,貼掉了
在滑板上、筆電上、櫃子上,也有一部分被A走
兩本貼紙書,好像只有到第二集,之後好像就沒再發行
其中比較特別的應該是CABA'S的輪架貼紙,他先貼在板身上再把輪架鎖上去
就會露出一點點的扶桑花跟logo


一些雜誌附錄的貼紙我都會把它裁下來另外收藏
MOOK裡面的APE X KAWS、SUPREME、TERIYAKI BOYZ
APE的膠帶是我覺得最酷的,裡面一卷是二代迷彩,另一卷是MILO的迷彩,到現在我都只有用一小段而已
這裡特別感謝AMOSONE、SHON、CREATION、JAMO、SHAUN、JASON RABBIT
不吝嗇地送我了許多貼紙

所以在這裡我也要不吝嗇送貼紙給大家
下面這些是我自己做的貼紙
部分也反映最近我個人的意識
有喜歡的朋友可以把收件資料寄mail給我
我會把它送給你!



以上
