You might not have known this, but there is a community out there that has created strong bonds through the collecting, buying, and selling of extremely limited clothes, shoes, and accessories.
Many of the clothing brands that you know of, that exist in malls and shopping centers aren’t the type to be collected and praised by this community. As time goes on, more and more brands begin to appear and become popular overnight, but it’s not often that this happens.
One of the most popular brands is known as Supreme. This brand began over a decade ago as a simple skateboarding brand. But they began to do things differently. They put out designs that the consumers and customers wanted, but they made them a limited supply and said that once a design is sold out, it will never come back. That is when they began their climb to the top.
Most of the time popularity becomes a big deal due to the limited supply. As the items become more and more limited people are willing to pay more. The more the item costs the less likely that a person will actually wear it and the more it turns into a piece for a collection.
This world of clothing collection has created its own economy and purpose which to me is really interesting because it has just recently appeared a little over 20 years ago.
