Shawn Stussy in his Studio by Seth Epstein

“So a lot of people think that Stussy is just a clothing company, but it was not that at all in the beginning…” While it may have reached household status on the streets, the Stussy name actually started out with Shawn Stussy shaping surfboards to pay the bills, and the clothing that bore his name was just a side project of sorts. Until it “got in the way of shaping,” and the rest is street fashion history. In this video short from filmmaker Seth Epstein, we get a rare look at Shawn hard at work in his new S/Double board workshop, having backtracked to the roots of his own brand to explore where it could have taken him the first time around.
