Upgraded from a 8.9 magnitude to a 9.0, the earthquake and tsunami that wrecked much of northwestern Japan last Friday afternoon have caused an unprecedented amount of damages and suffering to the island nation. To show its solidarity behind those in the crisis, Stussy, fragment design, and Hiroshi Fujiwara, are in the process of creating a limited charitable t-shirt. Hark on Stussy’s motto of “World Tribe”, the “One World One Love One Heart” will contribute all of its proceeds (minus the cost) to Red Cross Society of Japan. In a brief statement, Fujiwara wrote
In the wake of this tragedy all people become one.
Old friends as well as strangers join together and are transformed from people to humanity.
The recent events in Japan are tragic, alarming and historic.
But, we will all help each other and rebuild, reassure and reconfirm our bonds that people are people, and sometimes you have to extend a hand.
The eyes and hearts of the world are on Japan and we wish them much love.
In this great future, you cannot forget your past or present.
One World, One Love, One Heart…
