How Supreme went from a small skateboarding store to a billion-dollar streetwear company

Supreme was once a small skateboarding store in New York City. Now, it's a billion-dollar company well known for its presence in the fashion industry. The retail value of Supreme's clothing isn't that outlandish, but once the items sell out, they begin to increase in value.  Supreme under-produces to the demand, creating a huge resale market and exclusivity associated with the brand.  Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories. Following is a transcript of the video.Shopper 1: Sup...

Supreme Brand Oreos Now Cost As Much As $17,000 On eBay

Hypebeasts with a sweet tooth have gone wild over the latest Supreme drop. Earlier this week, as part of their Spring/Summer 2020 collection, the cult streetwear brand debuted red and white Supreme-branded Oreo cookies. Taking their own spin on the classic creme-filled cookie, double stuf’d Supreme Oreos were priced at $8 per pack of three. But, in the typical frenzy inspired by the brand’s limited edition collabs, the cookies sold out in just a couple days. Now, they are being resold for ...

I spent a day following an Instagram influencer around New York City — here's what it was like

Influencers have turned into household names in recent years, and the industry is now worth up to an estimated $8 billion. However, people still struggle to understand what the non-traditional career consists of, so I followed an influencer around New York City for a day to offer people a better idea. In a day with style influencer Courtney Seamon — one of the two women behind Mimosas & Manhattan — I attended events for bedding and shoes, gained insight into how she makes a living, and learned...

Shot in Soho review – a lament for London's lost sanctum of sleaze

Photographers’ Gallery, LondonThe slow demise of a bohemian melting pot is chronicled in a movingly melancholic show that shuns the obviousIn 1957, VUE magazine described Soho as “the world’s wickedest square mile”. Back then, like its Parisian equivalent Pigalle, London’s Soho was a neighbourhood that traded on its bad reputation, luring the curious and the bohemian with its after-hours strip clubs, shebeens, peep shows and sex workers. That the gullible or the inebriated could fall prey to pic...

Central-Mid-Levels escalators in HK

Among Hong Kong’s many accolades — including being a global hub for both finance and street food — one is responsible for moving you about the commercial district with ease, and we’re not talking about tuk-tuks, motorbikes, or even Uber. This Special Administrative Region off the Chinese coast is home to the world’s longest outdoor covered escalator system. Stretching over 800 meters, or about a half mile, and gaining 135 meters in elevation, the Central-Mid-Levels Escalator system carries mo...

Random Excellence: Photographer Unknown

I thought I'd try something a little different for "Random Excellence" today. This isn't an expressive photograph; it's a descriptive one. That's its purpose. It's not "authored" in the sense we usually think of. It's an auction house catalog photograph of an object for sale. For some reason I was struck by this Garry Winogrand comment, at the outset of the new documentary: Winogrand: "Well, what is a photograph?" Background voice: "I don't know. You tell me what they meant to you." Winogrand (...

This Week in Photography Books: Lawrence Schwartzwald

I made a few resolutions last month. I give myself guidelines, each New Year, for things I’d like to work on. (Ways to better myself.) This year, at the top of my list, I’m trying hard to talk less shit about other people. That’s my number one goal. I lost a few friends a couple of years ago, and am pretty sure that gossip-mongering played a role in it. (Not that I take the blame squarely, just that I own my part in it.) On one hand, it makes me value my closest friends even...

Why I Have High Hopes for Snarkitecture's Upcoming Permanent Exhibition Space, Snark Park 

Here in New York City (specifically SoHo), we've seen dozens of popup "museums" come and go as quickly as documentation that they even existed in the first place filters through and disappears on Instagram feeds. There's been a Rosé, "Mansion", a bubble tea "experience" (just drink a bubble tea, there's your experience), and a Color "Factory". Even Refinery29's 29Rooms managed to feel less like an art installation and more like a branded photo-op this year. What we like to think started off as g...

Dinner with mom @ Pierre Victoire

Since coming back to the UK 4 years back we’ve had one go-to French restaurant – Savoire Faire, on the edge of Soho near the British Museum. This past Friday I figured we should try a new place, and found Pierre Victoire, which is ranked 522 of London restaurants but #2 in Northern London for French restaurants. Which is #1? Of course, it is Savoire Faire! We were getting together to celebrate Karen’s birthday, so mom, Karen, me and Su. We gave Karen some cosmetics stuff from Neal’s Yard. We had...

It's Official — Instagram Loves The "Back To School" Look

There's a certain eerie feeling that hits come August. Whether you're 13 or 30, that "summer is ending" vibe is inevitable, even if you no longer get the luxury of a summer break (even though not much changes during the seasonal transition once you've entered the workforce). While we don't have to physically worry about heading back to school, we're still inundated with giant cardboard signs advertising pencils and clothing discounts. But there's something to be said for that nostalgic back to ...

Clever Object Allows Photographers to Shoot Through Glass Without Unwanted Reflections

When I lived in New York, I'd occasionally see photography crews shooting store windows in SoHo. To eliminate reflections and window glare, they'd erect a gigantic black fabric screen behind the photographer. It looked like a real pain in the ass.Another situation in which reflections are undesirable is when shooting through the window of an observation deck. Photographer Josh Smith, frustrated with reflection-marred shots he'd taken on a trip to Japan in 2015, thus invented this Ultimate Lens H...

The Most Instagrammed Restaurants In NYC

We're all guilty of it: Quickly snapping a photo of that pizza or ice cream or burger we couldn't wait to dig into, and not-so-slyly Instagramming it from across the table. Why? Because, we're obsessed with #foodporn. We love seeing what others are eating (and showing of our own dishes).There are some plates, however, that show up on a New Yorker's feed all the time. Grilled corn from Café Habana? Seen it. A Salty Pimp cone from the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop? Yup, that too. A bagel and lox from Ru...
