Stussy and BAPE have a history working on projects that would more likely than not fly off the shelves when they dropped. For 2013, the two are back with another one for the books.
First previewed through teasers and short videos, we really didn’t get a full scope of what else was in the collaboration. All we knew was two very cool varsity jackets were in the works. But finally, after weeks of waiting, the full “Ill Collaboration” has finally been released. And fans of both brands will like what they’re going to see.
The collection contains a variety of items that fuse both brands’ signature designs, from Stussy’s hand style writing and iconic logos to BAPE’s infamous full-zip shark hoody and Ape head graphics. Varsity jackets, hoodies, camo pants, and tees cover most of the apparel collection. In the accessory department there are bandanas, hats, and Stussy’s Naomi shades covered with BAPE’s signature camo pattern. Like previos collaborations, we don’t see these items even warming up the shelves before flying. Visit the Stussy website Saturday September 21 for the drop.
