California-cool surf and streetwear brand, Stüssy chose modern subcultures for its summer 2018 collection. The collection pays tribute to the psychedelia and military garbs of the 80’s, creating a different approach to innovating the brand’s future.
Using New Dying techniques and intricate stitching, the collection features patterns for layering and certain vintage aesthetics. Its tracksuits and zip jackets take one back in remembrance of the introduction to American history of edgy and retro. Photographed by Fahim Kassam and styled by Annina Mislin, the collection sparks the revolutionary era where people used clothes to reflect their personality. Printed button ups paired with the Hank pant and Nylon shorts channel the Californian surf uniform that luckily seems to never go out of trend.
The summer line also features a bleach dyed trucker jacket in a pastel pink, considering one to layer easily with a color that contrasts well. Tie Dye shorts were included, designed in a blue color depicting the reflection of water. From checkered prints to leopard printed coats, the brand is epic when it comes to layering.
Highlighted pieces included an orange ombre crewneck sweater, to match any light denim paired with. Including vibrant colors in its stock water shorts to match with any Tie Dye pattern, Stüssy’s distinctive patterns remain humble to its concept even when breaking in new grounds.
The collection is available now on Stüssy.com.
