Just in at the Fully Laced Flagship Store is the Stussy Deluxe x Reyn Spooner Hawaiian Traditionals collection. Here’s a little background information about the collection:
For Summer 2010, Stussy Deluxe teamed up with legendary, Hawaii-based Reyn Spooner, the company known for taking the Hawaiian shirt to the heights of casual American classic. Founded in 1962, Reyn Spooner is known for a reverse fabric that imitates the sun-bleached cotton clothing of surfer’s garments.
“You have to respect Reyn Spooner for coming with a look, staying faithful to that look and over a period of nearly 50 years building an iconic company that represents the Hawaiian Lifestyle,” said Nick Bower, Stussy’s Design Director. “There’s been a move toward American authentic, but the brands associated with that are usually East Coast or cold weather outdoor brands. I wanted to look at West Coast authentics.”
The Stussy x Reyn Spooner capsule collection featured a vintage Reyn Spooner print modified with Stussy’s iconic hand script across sixteen pieces including shirts, walk shorts, board shorts, windbreakers and a range of accessories including bags by Japan-based Porter and a slip-on, cork foot bed sandal by Japan-based Tatami. All items featured Reyn Spooner’s classic inside-out construction.
Stussy commissioned original photographer and longtime friend Ron Leighton to shoot the project capturing the essence of the Golden Age in California. The Stussy Deluxe x Reyn Spooner collection was released in May 2010.
The term “all-black everything” comes to mind when this new Stussy x Starter Snap-Back Cap first appeared. But then the brief introduction from Stussy Japan had it listed as “Tropical Baseball Cap” instead. Was it a care of erroneous description? The description was quite accurate in fact, just simply look at the underside of the cap’s brim and you’ll see a tropical floral print in tonal black. Embellished with Stussy Worldwide Tribe Mil Spec. tag on front and a Starter embroider logo on back, the Stussy x Starter Snap-Back Cap is currently available at Stussy Japan retail locations and its official ZOZOTOWN online chapter store.
When it comes to Charles Schulz’s Peanuts, you can’t really go wrong. Stussy will be creating a capsule collection for children featuring Peanuts. Snoopy will be featured throughout the entire collection, which will include four different tees and two hats. The Peanuts x Stussy capsule collection will be available at select global Stussy retailers.
Stussy helps us to mark the return to the trashy, animated living room of two of our favorite metal heads, Beavis and Butt-Head, after a 15-year hiatus with a collection of limited edition tees, which are now available with a much wider release. Each of the tees see the duo switching out their classic AC/DC and Metallica logos for fresh Stussy gear, both in their individual shirts and in the others in the collection where they are joined by other Highland, Texas residents, including over-stressed principal McVicker and Winger-obsessed kid Steward Stevenson. The Stussy x Beavis and Butt-Head capsule collection launched in the States back in November, but now you can pick up your favorite at Japanese chapter stores and online.
