To kick off 2020, Stüssy has enlisted COMME des GARÇONS for its very first 40th-anniversary release. Connecting on a shared penchant for being authentically unconventional, the duo have come together to revisit the California-based label’s signature Varsity Jacket silhouette.
Celebrating the Stüssy’s 40th-anniversary, 1980-2020 date markings serve as a central design element of the limited co-branded outerwear item. The jacket features a black Melton wool base accented by small chenille patches representing CDG items on the sleeves and a larger patch at the rear depicting the geometric Surf Guy holding a “CDG” surfboard. Other accenting elements include Stüssy Tribe embroidery on the right chest and stacked co-branding embroidered on the left chest region. Rounding up the design of the limited collaboration is a satin lining, a tonal snap bottom closure, dual slit pockets, ribbed black collar and black/white contrast ribbed cuffs and hem.
The COMME des GARÇONS x Stüssy 40th Anniversary Varsity Jacket is set to release at Stüssy Chapter Stores, Dover Street Market locations, CDG brand stores and online on CDGCDGCDG and Stüssy’s webstore January 15 at 10 a.m. PST.
