Stussy has teamed-up with Marvel to bring you a collection of tees and hats that immerses classic characters from the Marvel Universe and teleports them into Stussy's galactic sphere of iconic imagery. The collection will be released in two batches:
Series 1 (April 27, 2011)
A collection of tees and hats that fuse archival Marvel images with Stussy’s iconic graphic language. Stussy scoured comic book conventions, eBay, and local comic book stores for old issues with classic covers that would mold well with Stussy’s design aesthetic. Scanned from the original comic books and rare collectors' posters from the 1960's - 1990's, the tee designs capture the essence of the characters, the texture of vintage comic books and the soulfulness of the Stussy brand.
A collection of tees and hats that feature new works by a pool of international artists, invited to revisit their childhood inspirations and interpret their favorites, utilizing their signature styles. Artists include Noah Eutkus, Mr. Cartoon, Todd James, James Jarvis, John K., Gary Panter, Bill Plympton, David Shrigley and Will Sweeney.
The Stussy x Marvel Project will be available at all Stussy Chapter Stores and select specialty accounts around the world.
So keep your eyes peeled for more info and images right here on Marvel.com, True Believers! This special collection will be flying off shelves before you can say, "By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth!"
