Fresh off a collaborative performance capsule with Satisfy Running, Our Legacy‘s WORK SHOP division has once again partnered with Stüssy on a summery collection. The warm-weather range mixes recycled materials and deadstock fabrics with natural hand-dyes.
Melding Stüssy’s particularly vibe-y Southern Californian heritage with Our Legacy WORK SHOP’s eco-conscious experimental ethos, the Summer ’21 capsule consists of shorts, bucket hats, T-shirts, hoodies, and a jacket. Having announced the collection only yesterday, the two brands describe it as “the perfect summer wardrobe for New York City, Laguna Beach, or Stockholm.”
Each pair of swim shorts and every nylon canvas jacket have been repurposed from archival Our Legacy fabrics. Produced in Our Legacy deadstock Italian tech fabric, the Water Shorts have a relaxed fit, and feature vented side seams, an elasticated drawstring waistband, jetted side pockets, a single back pocket with zip closure, and a Surfman logo tonal embroidery.
The Pararescue Jacket in “mud brown” was made with an Italian cotton and nylon blend canvas fabric. It has a relaxed, cropped fit, and features a yin yang chest print, a Stüssy back print, RiRi plastic zips, patch pockets, and adjustable waist cinches.
Elsewhere, the Bucket Hats were produced with a recycled polyester and organic cotton blend Stüssy fabric. Select hats were individually hand-dyed in Los Angeles, California by Niki Tsukamoto of expert natural hand dyers Lookout and Wonderland. Tsukamoto employed combinations of osage orange, chestnut bark, quebracho rojo, sappanwood, brazilwood, lac, organic indigo, and myrobalan to achieve one-of-a-kind colors. Each hat also features a reinforced stitched brim, an embroidered yin yang patch, and an embroidered Stüssy logo.
Finally, the capsule is rounded out with classic, co-branded Stüssy Tribe tees and hoodies made from 100% organic cotton.
Stüssy and Our Legacy WORK SHOP joined forces last summer to deliver an upcycled collection also built for the beach. At the time of that launch, Our Legacy co-founder Jockum Hallin told Vogue Runway about his longstanding affinity for Stüssy. “When I think about it, I have circled back to Stüssy during many eras of my life.” He added, “I loved the connection the brand had to surf, street, and music culture.”
The collection released earlier today, July 16, on Our Legacy WORK SHOP’s webstore, and unfortunately, many of the items have sold out. However, the capsule is expected to also drop at select Stüssy chapter stores, select Dover Street Market locations, and stussy.com at 10 a.m. PST.
