According to a statement released by Nctm, the Milan-based legal firm which assisted the American streetwear brand, both the Milan and San Marino courts ordered the seizure of about 120,000 items produced by foreign companies which were counterfeiting Supreme goods. Details on the products were not revealed, and it is understood they were seized in Italy and in the independent Republic of San Marino.
Supreme’s popularity in Italy recently spiked through the collaborations of the brand with major fashion players, including Louis Vuitton and Nike. Rumors are also circulating the streetwear label’s interest in making a retail investment in the country by opening a store in Milan.
Last July, Supreme sold a 50 percent stake in its business to private equity giant Carlyle for $500 million.
