Supreme has reached peak ubiquity.

The cult-favorite brand has seen its name plastered on everything from athleisure-style streetwear to motorcycle helmets and red clay bricks. The same logomania strategy also goes for its designer partnerships; Supreme has launched limited-edition collaborations with Louis Vuitton, The North Face and Nike — all of which manage to garner massive buzz from loyal hypebeasts.

Now, the brand is seeing some of its rare and exclusive pieces sell at a Paris auction called “C.R.E.A.M.” — or Cash Rules Everything Around Me — named after the Wu-Tang Clan single. According to French auction house Artcurial, which sold the items both at its headquarters and on the website, the auction was able to rake in a total of 847,751 euros, or just shy of $1 million in sales at the time of reporting.
