One indicator of the robust state of China’s consumer economy is the country’s high demand for luxury automobiles, with China having surpassed the U.S. in sales of the Volkswagen Group’s high-end brands (they include Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche and others). It’s no wonder, then, that the Chinese Zodiac is increasingly a prevalent guiding influence in the retail firmament. Stussy is jumping on the thematic bandwagon with a collection developed with Japanese accessories brand JAM HOME MADE. The pieces take the form of a large wallet and chronograph watch, each featuring snakeskin textured black leather in an obvious nod to the Year of the Snake. They’re joined by bracelets crafted from stone crystal, onyx and tiger eye. Look for the collection to launch soon at Stussy chapter stores.
