Stussy Deluxe presents its Spring 2012 lookbook, featuring original Stussy International Tribe member Alex “Baby” Turnbull. The Londoner is a musician, DJ, ex-British skateboarding champion and martial arts expert, who was introduced to Shawn Stussy and the tribe back in the day by former creative director Paul Mittleman. Alex has added filmmaker to his resume, having produced and co-directed Beyond Time, a documentary about the history of postwar modern art as viewed through the life of his father William Turnbull, pioneer of British modernism. Regarding a pioneer of another sort, Alex observes that “Stussy is the blueprint for modern day streetwear. They were the first to sponsor and support musicians and artists.”
The goods on display within the Stussy Deluxe Spring 2012 lookbook are an appealing mix of high-quality essentials, with standouts taking the form of a khaki twill hunting jacket with selvedge seams, plus an elegantly simple fleece bomber in neutral grey or black hues. The collection is available now at Stussy chapter stores and online.
