In 2013, Central Saint Martins student Kiko Kostadinov joined forces with Stussy to deliver a unique collection called “Displacement.” Now, in celebration of the streetwear brand’s 35th anniversary, the two have reunited for another range that’s expected to be just as successful as the first.
Inspired by the work of American artists Richard Serra and Lawrence Weiner, the collection picks up where the last one left off: Hoodies, crew necks, and sweatpants were literally ripped apart and sewn back together for a look that was unconventional and intriguing, yet still adhering to Stussy's signature street aesthetic.
"The initial idea was just to fuck up the basic logo. It's so bold and recognisable," Kostadinov told i-D magazine. "Even if you leave only the two dots, people will still probably know what it is. Then I had to back it up in my head with something that I visually liked and believed in [...] I've tried to insert as many personal details that I like from my previous work, and I'd like to potentially develop these into further pieces for my own projects or maybe more Stussy."
Take a look below to see images of the collection, which drops tomorrow as part of London Collections: Men fashion week. The range will be available exclusively at UK-based retailer Machine-A.
