The streetwear label continues its retail expansion plans, announcing the opening of its first store in Germany and its 14th store globally on Wednesday. Most recently, it opened a location in Milan in May. Berlin had been on the brand’s radar as a potential retail location for years.

When Supreme was acquired by VF Corp in late 2020, it reported generating more than 60 percent of its sales through e-commerce, with overall revenue more than doubling in the preceding three years. VF said in January that it expects Supreme to generate $500 million in the current fiscal year and that it will take a hands-off approach with the brand.
