Shawn Stussy and Dior have continued their collaboration, celebrating the artist and designer’s roots as a surfer with the latest release. The joint surfboard has been designed in the “Gun” shape, which s known for its streamlined silhouette and features a special fin to create a smoother and easier drive.

The board comes in a color palette of gray and “Ice Blue” on a white base, with one side featuring the “Dior” signature collage from the Fall 2020 men’s collection.

Speaking about the surfboard, Shawn Stussy explained his desire to create something “that seems to dance on the ocean,” while Dior artistic director Kim Jones explained the collaboration’s origins. “Shawn Stussy is one of my great heroes. He started out as a surfer, making his own boards and painted his name on them. It was quite natural for me to ask him to work together on the very first Dior surfboard.”

Limited to just 100 editions, each board takes 72 hours of handiwork to produce. Currently, there is no news on release date for the surfboards.

In other fashion news, Hiroshi Fujiwara’s 7 Moncler Genius is back for Fall/Winter 2020.
