Streetwear giants Stüssy have teamed up with Dover Street Market for a special retrospective exhibition and 240-page book published by IDEA books.

Digging deep through Stüssy’s iconic archive, DSM have pulled a series of vintage graphics – such as the ‘Charlie Don’t Surf’, magic eight ball and dice motifs – and reissued them across eight brand new tees, available to buy alongside two special collaboration pieces. These pieces will be on display in the basement of DSM’s Haymarket location.


Alongside the clothing drop comes an epic retrospective book documenting the New York brand’s archive shirts and shirt designs. Documenting the brand’s momentous influence, the tome includes an essay, interviews and editorial by HERO collaborator Ari Marcopoulos alongside original artwork, editorial magazine tear sheets and brand advertising – including previously unseen imagery. Photographers featured include Glen Luchford, Inez + Vinoodh, Ryan Willms, Amy Troost, Alasdair McLellan, Willy Vanderperre, Collier Schorr and Terry Richardson. Not bad, not bad at all.
