Consider this the collaboration of two icons in street wear, two labels which have proven to have more staying power than the rest. This Holiday, BAPE and Stussy have decided to merge their distinctive styles and draw the ape together with the skull, the camo with the specialized Stussy doodling font and create quite an extensive collection of apparel and footwear. The collection can be divided into two styles, one which is more orthodox street wear with printed graphic t-shirts, shell jackets and embellished denim, and the other with a more subtle palette and follows a more mature cut-and-sew styling with oxford button downs, cardigans, and unadorned blues. The collection, aptly named, “Survival Of The Fittest”, is designed to celebrate Stussy’s 30th Anniversary, and points to the evolution of both brands through the years, and adapting to the market with incredible foresight and creativity for survival.
In any case, both labels have done way more than simply survive, and the collection is set to hit the racks very soon on November 27.
