Carhartt x Vans Chukka + Half Cab

We have previously reported on the Carhartt x Vans collaboration. The two brands designed a Chukka and a Half Cab, which will be releasing early September. The sneakers are limited to only 500 pairs each, so they’ll be pretty hard to come by. They will drop at the Carhartt store in Paris and Berlin on September 3rd, and in London on the 13th.

Stussy x EPMD “Strictly Business” Party Recap

highsnobiety - Stussy x EPMD

In the middle of the week we gave you a small look at the Stussy x EPMD “Strictly Business” party that took place in Las Vegas beginning of the week.

“On Monday, August 25th, Stussy hosted a party with hip hop legends EPMD at club Moon at The Palms Hotel in Las Vegas. One thousand people packed into the capacity filled venue to witness Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith run through a set of their classic hits which included “You Gots to Chill”, “Strictly Business” and “Crossover”. Dj’s Neil Armstrong, Wristpect and Sample208 spun jams to keep the party moving.”

Here you get now a proper look at the party, the people and definitely what you missed out on, in case you were not there.

Stussy x Fruition “Do You Know What Time It Is” Installation

Stussy, the leading streetwear brand since 1987, will team up with Las Vegas’ Fruition Anomaly shop for a special store installation. The collaboration will feature deadstock Stussy pieces culled from the brand’s archives that Fruition will sell in shop and online at www.fruitionlv.com. With this three month installation and retail project, Stussy takes its cornerstone inspirations of surf, skate, hip-hop, reggae and punk lifestyle and remixes them with Fruition’s vintage-inspired, high/low aesthetic that draws from the very best of street fashion, old and new.

As part of the installation, a photography exhibit will document these vintage pieces in a modern context – exemplifying how the trend cycle keeps turning and recycling, asking the viewer “Do You Know What Time It Is?” The shots were taken at locations legendary to insiders only – Luv It Custard, famed music venue The Huntridge Theater, and the Neon Boneyards where casino lights go to die – far from the flash of more typical Las Vegas locales. A video reel of vintage Stussy advertisements and promo videos will play in store and on the web. A Stussy x Fruition version of the original SS link tee will be produced in limited quantity of 300 and sold exclusively at Fruition. Approximately 25 styles (150 pc total) of deadstock including hats, tees and boxer shorts culled from the Stussy archives will be priced between $40 – $150.

“I have always seen Stussy as the Ralph Lauren of street fashion. It’s one of the classic pillar brands,” says Chris Julian, co-owner of Fruition. “This was a great opportunity to show the history of Stussy in a new light. It’s done with our mentality for a new tribe of inspired young minds and empowered artistic individuals here in here in our city and the entire world. Stussy always knows who to work with, a reason they’ve stayed relevant all these years, so we feel really honored to be presenting this.”
