And while his living room and kitchen showed scant evidence of his 3-year obsession, Fahim’s bedroom resembled that of a Supreme warehouse, with shoe boxes piled from the floor to the ceiling, “brand new in packaging” t-shirts scattered all around, and a glass cabinet filled with Supreme merchandise.
As a kid, Fahim often hung out with old collectors at Far East Plaza. When he was 16, he dropped by the Warped Store and met his first love – a pair of red Supreme x Nike High Dunks retailing at $750.
“At 16, wanting to buy something like that seemed impossible,” said Fahim. “So once I started working and had more spending power, I set out to collect what I always wanted to buy as a kid.”
Other items from Fahim’s Supreme collection include a jacket from the Supreme x The North Face collab and several unique collectibles, like fire extinguishers, salt-pepper shakers, toothpicks, and even a water pistol!
While showing us his collection, Fahim apologized for the “messy” state of his room, which made it difficult for him to move around. However, when asked if he’d consider selling his collection to make way for more space, he said: “My family thinks my collection is a clutter and have told me to sell it, but I’ve told them that it has sentimental value. If I had more space, I’d open a gallery. That’s the dream.”
