To celebrate the release of the very first Canada specific Stussy collection for Winter 2010, the brand presents the above video.
“On December 11th, 2010 Stussy Chapter Stores in Toronto and Vancouver will be releasing the first Canada-specific collection Stussy has ever produced. Simply put, the Stussy Canada collection is designed by Canadians for Canadians. With an emphasis on classic layering pieces and timeless design, these pieces are perfect for the impending winter. The collection consists of: shirting made of Japanese fabric, basic fleece sweats, a knit cuff watchman and a Canadian hand-knit cowichan vest.
The Cowichan vest was produced in Canada by the legendary hand knit manufacturer The Canadian Sweater Company. Founded in 1977 and located in British Colombia, where the cowichan knitting method was invented, The Canadian Sweater Company specializes in hand-knit pieces designed to withstand and overpower the Canadian winters. Arguably the first logo sweater, the cowichan is undeniably Canadian. We took it one step further by branding it with our iconic Stussy Canada Beaver link logo. Nothing says Canada quite like the North American Beaver, our official emblem. We are extremely proud of this collaboration that will be made available only at Stussy Canada stores.
Accompanying the release will be an exclusive color way of the “Fitzsimmons” boot by our friends at Native Shoes.”
