Stüssy Summer 2020 Menswear Collection
Back for Summer 2020, Stüssy has returned with a menswear offering that serves as a new spin on brand signatures.
Boxy chore coats, statement graphics and patterned pants, with a host of new imagery and fabric treatments breathing life into old favorites. Workwear staples are tweaked with soft, sunny colors and pleasantly uncommon textiles. Some standouts include a hickory-striped jacket and pant set, pocketed work vest, breathable mesh T-shirts, printed short-sleeve shirting and soccer shirt/short pairing.
Cremate x AFFIX “Loaded Dice” T-Shirt
London-based incense brand Cremate has teamed up with AFFIX on a “Loaded Dice” T-shirt in support of #BlackLivesMatter. Part of a “momentary shift of power.” The move gives Cremate – a black-owned business – “control of the message as a show of solidarity and support.”
Addressing systemic racism while raising money for U.K.-based organizations, the front of the T-shirt, a print reads “Life’s a game, and a lot of y’all tossin loaded dice.” While the rear is printed with an extensive definition of institutional racism which ends, “this is but a glimpse at the current system. The system is extremely flawed. It needs to be dismantled and rebuilt from the ground up.” 100 percent of the proceeds from the “Loaded Dice” T-shirt will be donated to the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and Black Lives Matter U.K.
