Adopted by streetwear, hip-hop, surf, and other notable subcultures, Stüssy started off as a tiny surf brand in Southern California. Founded by former surfer Shawn Stussy in 1980, Stüssy initially came to fruition when Shawn started shaping surfboards for his friends and other locals of his hometown of Laguna Beach, California. This venture then turned into Shawn screen-printing t-shirts and shorts, all of which included his surname written in a graffiti-inspired style, which we now know as the iconic Stüssy branded logo. These efforts continued to grow, resulting in Shawn Stussy traveling around the country setting up showrooms for his now full-fledged apparel brand. As contemporary pop culture shifts were taking place, Stüssy began to grow. The label broke creative barriers in countless subcultures of surfing, skating, and music.
Stüssy’s latest delivery, Holiday ‘22, is an extensive collection of primary outerwear that is fitting for the cooler season. It explores the classics all while playing with subtle and unexpected colors, vibrant prints, and proportions. A combination of technical and classic materials is spread throughout each cut-and-sew apparel item. Bold visual themes push the design vision forward, creating a complete wardrobe. The extensive capsule of laid-back staples includes premium silhouettes such as bomber jackets, hoodies, t-shirts, and more. Each item spotlights eclectic patterns and graphics.
With that, Stüssy’s new collection welcomes an array of stand-out pieces. Taking on a military inspiration, the Stüssy Ripstop Surplus Cargo makes an impression within any apparel collection. The design is constructed from cotton and is made for a relaxed fit. The pants take on an enzyme-washed aesthetic paired with two slant front pockets and four patch pockets for functionality. The two rear pockets are treated with a snap closure, while the fixed waistband’s buckle adjusters add further functionality to the look. A metal zip fly is placed, while the double-layered knee and seat panels add a durable finish to the silhouette. Pairing seamlessly with the pants is the Stüssy 8 Ball Fade Tee. Cut entirely from cotton, this must-have graphic tee spotlights a ribbed neckline for added detail. The screen-printed Stüssy branding and a faded 8-ball graphic wrap up the look.
Perfect for the cooler months, the Stüssy Shaggy Cardigan takes on a premium blend of nylon and acrylic. Featuring a flag label at the side seam, the v-neckline is secured by a pearl button closure. Ribbed detailing at the trims complete the rest of the design. An additional stand-out apparel item is the Stüssy Pig. Dyed Loose Gauge Sweater. The design is crafted entirely from cotton and spotlights all-over heavy gauge ribbing at the neckline, cuffs, and hem. A stock label is seen at the side seam, finishing the remainder of the look.
