Having kicked off its 40th anniversary in style, Stüssy is keeping the party going with a special collection designed in partnership with COMME des GARÇONS‘ CDG sub-label. Familiar garments appear alongside repurposed graphics, each updated with thematic appeal.
Like Stüssy’s Holiday 2020 collection, the new CDG joint effort relies on recognizable silhouettes, utilizing approachable staples as a canvas for the timely illustrations. These include a classic Stüssy circular logo elevated with CDG branding and vice versa, as one shirt boasts the familiar stacked “CDG” graphic atop Stüssy’s own logo.
More adventurous items include a striped Bing jacket and Beach pant set and a military olive bomber jacket — a piece of apparel beloved by both brands — that sports co-branding on the rear (updating a Stüssy World Tribe design) and a dangling Stüssy “S”-branded tab beneath the hem. A heavy cotton tote and hat complete the collection.
Stüssy’s website, select chapter stores and Dover Street Market outposts will host the 40th anniversary drop on November 13.
