Commemorating the opening of A Tribe Called Stussy exhibition, Stussy Japan invited APPLEBUM to design a collaboration t-shirt. The graphic blends the roots of these two brands by incorporating skateboard and sneaker box motifs in the now famous double S logo. Rather than to go the digital route, this graphic was illustrated by hand perhaps to revert back to the days where computers did not rule the world. The pool also references to the time when skateboarders would scour the suburbs to find an empty pool to skate in. On the left chest, a phrase reads 'The Sun Rises In The East' which not only points to the geography of Japan but also Tokyo's geographic location compared to the rest of the country. APPLEBUM online store currently have the t-shirts in stock.
