Stussy teamed up with Marvel Comics for a collaboration that immerses classic characters from the Marvel universe and teleports them into Stussy’s galaxy of iconic imagery. The line will be split up into two parts. Series 1, releasing April 27, 2011, features a collection of tees and hats that fuse archival Marvel images with Stussy’s iconic graphic language. Stussy scoured comic books conventions, eBay, and local comic book stores for old issues with classic covers that would mold well with Stussy’s design aesthetic. Scanned from the original comic books and rare collectors posters from the 1960’s – 1990’s, the tee designs capture the essence of the characters, the texture of vintage comic books and the soulfulness of the Stussy brand. Series 2, releasing May 6, 2011, consists of tees and hats that feature new works by a pool of international artists, invited to revisit their childhood inspirations and interpret their favorites utilizing their signature styles. The Stussy x Marvel Project will be available at Stussy.com, Stussy Chapter Stores and select specialty accounts around the world.
