With 2011 about a week away, this might be the last product to come out of the popular Stussy 30th Anniversary (aka Stussy XXX) collaborative program. Designed in part with help from designer Tomohiro Konno of NEXUSVII fame, the Stussy 30th Anniversary Retrospective Edition celebrates the longevity of Stussy and its boundless influence on fashion as a whole. For Konno, the natural conclusion was something with similar unprecedented impact, the Levi’s 501 denim. In 2 washes, Mid-Used and Dark Used, the Stussy XXX Retrospective Edition 501s underwent light paint splatter application for an authentic used appearance. Areas intentionally frayed then re-patched with Stussy’s emblem, Lion of Judah (Rasta Lion). A Stussy Double-S patch and logo imprint can be found right beneath the denim’s rear pockets, while 2 special markings are located on the denim inner lining. Launched over the weekend at Levi’s Japan specialty store, both editions have sold out already. However, all hope is not lost yet. A second batch of the special edition will be available on Christmas’s Eve, December 24th, on Stussy’s online store.
