Earlier this month, Ox Street reported that Supreme will be opening more stores in Asia next year, and if these brand new rumors are true, then it looks like the James Jebbia-helmed streetwear brand could be heading to South Korea for its first stop. According to a new trademark, which was filed by the Lee International Patent Law Firm based in the Seodaemun district of Seoul, the New York City label's logo and respective brand marks are now officially protected in the country, meaning that they will be free to trade there very soon.
This falls in line with what Steven E. Rendle, Chairman, President & Chief Executive Officer of the VF Corporation, announced earlier this year during an earnings call. "We've got some new Asia store opportunities coming available as we begin to look at that international expansion which was part of the acquisition thesis. And tourism is coming back. And this brand has a lot of consumers that don't live in those markets where the stores reside and the tourism impact and opening up of markets where consumers now can come back into the stores, engage with the brand, line up for the product, again gives us another point of, I think, confidence of what this brand is capable of."
