Stussy and BAPE are two of streetwear's most O.G. brands and have a collaboration coming out, but until now, we haven't seen much of the collection other than a few pieces. Instead of just releasing laid-out product shoots to tease the clothes, the brands put together an equally trill video for its self-proclaimed "Ill Collaboration," which stars King of the Youth Ian Connor and Chicago rapper Fredo Santana.
Three weeks ago, we saw Santana sporting the collection on Instagram, and we were thinking, "When the hell is a lookbook going to drop?" We're glad we waited, and were treated to a short film directed by A$AP Bari that features dudes riding around on New York City streets, and popping wheelies on four-wheelers in T-shirts that are co-branded with Shawn Stussy's signature and BAPE's Shark logo.
If that's not enough for you, there's also a visual of the crew over-running a local bodega, Ian Connor casually smoking a cigarette, and eating a banana while sitting on the store's countertop.
If you're 'bout that life, stay tuned for further on the release.
