Stüssy x Dries Van Noten Flea Fronts Collaboration Campaign

After teasers courtesy of A$AP NAST and a short video of the duo themselves, Stüssy and Dries Van Noten reunited to explore their next collaboration in an official campaign led by founding member and bassist of The Reds. Hot Chilli Peppers, Flea.

Shot by Tyrone Lebon, the campaign sees Flea in her usual carefree state, bouncing around the room while playing her bass guitar, playing basketball, or just jumping for joy wearing the Stüssy x Dries Van Noten collaborative clothes.

In a collaboration many were shocked to see, it becomes clear the collection was meant to be – Stüssy’s So-Cal style is accentuated by Dries’ ability to play with and manipulate color and pattern. The psychedelic is everywhere, as paraphernalia adorns the back of a military green parka alongside a myriad of colors blending together like a rainbow smokescreen. Peace signs, flowers, and embroidered appliqués can be found on the standout garment, influencing much of what else can be found in the capsule.

The collab effort continues with double-branded tie-dye tees, sweatpants and sweatshirts, camp-collar shirts, loose-fitting printed jeans, and a rhinestone blazer and slacks — the latter being the most evocative of Dries’ work. What would be a simple black suit was given an irreverent makeover by the duo, dazzling in the light as rhinestones create sparkling stripes all over Dries Van Noten’s blazer and trousers. Elsewhere, the designer’s use of ink-like spills explode onto track pants in more psychedelic forms, while Stüssy emblems like the 8-ball also sport a DVN makeover on pieces like the varsity jacket.

Stüssy and Dries Van Noten will be available worldwide at select Chapter Stores, select Dover Street Market locations, Dries Van Noten stores, on the Stüssy website and on the Dries Van Noten website on Friday, November 18 at 10:00 a.m. PST, 10:00 a.m. CET, and 10:00 a.m. JST per respective region. Take a closer look at the campaign above.
