The streetwear realm is home to a plethora of heavyweight brands, and among the ones generating a substantial amount of buzz in this latter half of Summer 2022 is Stüssy. The California-based entity has been exciting footwear fans over its various collaborations with Nike and Converse and recently dropped a joint collection alongside Denim Tears and Our Legacy. And now, it’s further adding to its momentum with the release of a collaborative apparel assemblage alongside Lucien Smith.
For this project, Stüssy has opted to shine a light on the LA artist’s work from his “Tigris” paint show in NYC in 2014. The works were inspired by Hokusai’s The Great Wave off Kanagawa and explore memories of the natural world through the process of abstraction. A specific camouflage pattern has been pulled from the exhibition and utilized on a trio of silhouettes. Lined up for the release is a zip-up bomber jacket that is colored with purple, orange and black graphics, a crewneck sweatshirt that somewhat takes on the a similar palette but with a more dusted aesthetic as well as trousers that deviate with traditional green patterns.
Stüssy has the items available now, and prices range from $160-$280 USD.
