After pulling in strong numbers from its auction of Supreme skate decks, Sotheby‘s is teaming up with long-time Supreme collector Yukio Takahashi for the sale of his 1300-piece collection of accessories — an impressive collection that was exhibited late last year at the Jason Vass Gallery in Los Angeles.
When asked to comment on his Supreme collection and his thoughts on selling his two-decades-worth of items, Yukio Takahashi replied, “What makes Supreme’s accessories the most exciting part of their product line is its unpredictability, multifacetedness and genius choices in collaborations. I have enjoyed collecting Supreme for two decades and the process and result have both surpassed expectations. Now it is complete to the best of my knowledge and is at a good stopping place. Once Sotheby’s was mentioned, I recognised there would be no better way to sign off. Exemplified by their NIGOLDENEYE® sale, the capabilities of Sotheby’s are second to none.”
On top of the everyday carry accessories, a few key items being auctioned off are the Fender guitar, Stern pinball machine, Everlast punching bag, and Coleman minibike.
Those in Hong Kong will be able to see all 1300 items on display from May 24 – 28 at H Queen’s Hart Hall in Central. Online bidding will be open from May 20, 10 am HKT – May 28, 11 am HKT.
