Stussy is s a clothing brand that needs no introduction but for the record we’d like to state a few things. The company was started in the early 1980s by Shawn Stussy. The company is one of many that benefited from the surfwear trend originating in Orange County, California, but it has largely been adopted by the streetwear and hip-hop scenes. Now the brand is available in company branded stores and other retailers in Europe, Asia, the United States, Canada and Australia. The early success of the brand has been attributed to its popularity in the hip-hop and DJ scenes. The brand was also embraced by skaters, punks, hipsters, and other street subcultures. In an interview Stussy said: “Everybody calls it surf wear, or urban street wear, or surf street… I don’t name it, and I don’t name it on purpose.”
Stussy recently teamed up with illustrator, Ferry Gouw to create some t-shirts for their Holiday 2013 collection. Gouw is a London-based and Indonesian-born illustrator who is acknowledged for his extensive work with the Electronic Dancehall group Major Lazer and the Mad Decent record label, discusses childhood influences, the origins of working with Diplo and his decision to only wear suits after turning 30. The t-shirts are a part of the Stussy Guest Artist Series. We think the t-shirts are amazingly dazzling and the design is all too good to be acknowledged in words. They are colorful, funny and full of excitement for the holidays. Take a look at what Stussy X Ferry Gouw has to give you.
They are all 100% soft cotton standard weight crew neck t-shirt with original Ferry Gouw artwork, made in Mexico.
