Supreme have once again proved there’s no brand better at causing chaos.
Earlier this month, the streetwear superstars announced they would be collaborating with the New York City MTA on a branded subway card as part of their 2017 Spring/Summer Accessories line. The Supreme MetroCards officially went on sale yesterday, and like every Supreme drop, they’ve created pandemonium amongst loyalists.
The MTA announced the cards were on sale only at select machines in a handful of stations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. You can pick one up in Manhattan at Broadway-Lafayette, Prince Street, Spring Street, Union Square, or 125th Street. In Brooklyn, you’ll find the cards at Atlantic Avenue or Marcy Avenue. Queens-based fans can head to Queens Plaza.
The Supreme MetroCards retail for $5.50 instead of the standard $1.00, and come preloaded with two subway rides. That is, if you can get one at all. Subway stations were flooded yesterday with hypebeasts hoping to get their hands on the most coveted accessory in urban transportation, confusing tourists and making regular commuters even crankier than usual.
Neither Supreme nor the MTA have announced how many cards are available, but if you aren’t lucky enough to score one in person, dozens are already up for resale on eBay.
Other unusual accessories from the SS17 line include a CT200u Mini Bike, bar stools, a money gun, curtains, measuring tape, and matches.
Should you feel the urge to express surprise at the stunt, remember this: Supreme once sold a brick that resold for $1000.
