Samsung partners with the wrong Supreme — regrets mixing up the two Supremes

Wait, what do you mean Supreme Italia and Supreme NYC are not the same thing? As far as I know, Samsung Nigeria and Samsung Malaysia are representing the same company. It seems like Samsung royally messed up when they partnered with Supreme Italia, which is actually a fake of Supreme NYC, which is the OG (am I using the lingo right?).

However, Supreme Italia is actually a recognized brand, and has won a counterfeit case versus Supreme NYC. So it is a legit brand right? Also, it is the only Supreme of the two that can market in China. So it makes sense that Samsung would partner with Supreme Italia when launching the Galaxy A8s in China.

If it was up to me, I really wouldn’t know the difference. But hypebeasts aren’t nearly as forgiving. To appease the beasts, Samsung has announced that they be re-evaluating this cooperation. Don’t give in to the beasts, Samsung. You do you. You do you.

What do you think of this fiasco? Should Samsung just continue their partnership with Supreme Italia, but only limit the partnership to China, since that’s where Supreme Italia has authorization to market? Tell us your opinion!
