SUPERILL HAWAII

SUPERILL STORMS HAWAII FOR THE FIRST TIME

Super Street - - CONTENTS - WORDS & PHO­TOS Sam Du

I at­tended my first Hawai­ian car show seven years ago. I sim­ply couldn’t get enough, so I started trav­el­ing to more events in Honolulu year after year, such as Spocom and Wek­fest. This past June, it was time to give back and show some love to the 808 State by bring­ing them what we’ve been build­ing up over the last cou­ple of years—our Superill pop-up shop and car meet.

The for­mula for Superill is some­thing Mark Arce­nal of Fat­lace/illest and I came up with. In essence, Su­per Street and Illest joined forces to tie au­to­mo­tive and streetwear cul­tures to­gether. At the core of the col­lab­o­ra­tion is the lim­it­ededi­tion gear (which you can find at su­per­street­garage.com), but we also or­ga­nized a no-frills, free car meet to go along with the ap­parel drop. It be­came big­ger than what we both could’ve imag­ined in Cal­i­for­nia, as thou­sands came to the last two events. We knew we had a recipe for some­thing big, and since Honolulu is like a home away from home for both me and Mark, it only made sense to cre­ate Superill Hawaii.

Lee­ward Com­mu­nity Col­lege was the host venue, only a 30-minute cruise from Waikiki Beach, and there was no short­age of good vibes as the four-hour-long meet went off with a bang. We can’t thank the lo­cal Hawaii com­mu­nity enough for com­ing out to sup­port the event with more than 200 reg­is­tered cars and hun­dreds more en­thu­si­asts.

From all of us at Su­per Street and Illest, ma­halo! And stay tuned for our next Superill pop-up, which may be com­ing to a city near you!
