Greek Gold Wreath of Oak Leaves and Flowers, possibly from Attica, Greece, late 2nd - early 1st century BC
In ancient Greece, oak leaves symbolized wisdom, and were associated with Zeus, who according to Greek mythology made his decisions while resting in an oak grove.
Gold wreaths such as this one derive their form from wreaths of real leaves worn in religious ceremonies or given as prizes in athletic and artistic contests. Because of their fragility, gold wreaths were probably not meant to be worn. They were dedicated to the gods in sanctuaries and placed in graves as funerary offerings. Although known in earlier periods, gold wreaths became much more frequent in the Hellenistic age, probably due in large part to the greatly increased availability of gold in the Greek world following the eastern conquests of.

on the Supreme Foamposite…
Let me start off by saying how biased this post is because of my envy towards the hype this brand has built, also the product(s) in question are some of the ugliest pieces of overpriced shit I’ve seen in a minute.
(although not gonna lie, kind of feeling those gym shorts for the summer)
My opinion about Supreme is the following
"I hate Supreme, well I don’t hate Supreme, I just hate the hypebeasts that love Supreme" -Myself aka Young Cocoa Krispy
With that being said, the Supreme Foamposite drop that was scheduled for tomorrow gathered such a large crowd of people (read: hypebeasts with daddy’s credit card and/or mommy’s wallet, or drug dealers) that the NYPD made the store not release the product and shut down the scene of people in line. I believe this is the first time that it wasn’t even a line, it just became a crowd of people, like a concert. My first thought was “HA ALL THOSE HYPEBEASTS CAN GO HOME AND CRY THEMSELVES TO SLEEP WHILE THEY JERK OFF TO PICTURES OF THE RED OCTOBERS” but ultimately this is a huge W for Supreme.
Never, as far as I can recall, has any apparel brand created such hype. This rivals only the behavior of people around Black Friday. So Supreme was forced to delay its release, but any Streetwear brand, NAY. ANY brand would kill to have products that are as highly coveted as Supreme’s.
So congrats Supreme, and fuck you.
