Editor’s Notes: Stüssy follows up its “World Tour” collection with an extra-terrestrial capsule made in collaboration with Dr. Octagon.
Dr. Octagon, the extraterrestrial surgeon from Jupiter, has traveled back to California to deliver merchandise from his Plant Earth Tour (2023 A.D.) in collaboration with Stüssy. The partnership could not be more fitting.
Graphic tees, hoodies and long-sleeve tees remain true to Octagon’s macabre sensibilities. The “Tabloids” T-shirt ($36), for example, pictures a newspaper clipping of a “half-alligator, half-human” found in the Florida Everglades alongside the text, “How to perform psychic surgery – on yourself!”
The collection includes a hooded sweatshirt for $90, with speculative tour dates for an “Earth Planet Tour,” stopping at Mars, Venus, Mercury, Earth, Hale Bopp, Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto, Saturn and Portland during the lunar cycle 2023 A.D. The hoodie comes in bright blue, black and white colorways.
The long-sleeved “Ice Cream Fudge” T-shirt ($40) comes in three basic colorways, and depicts the skeletal doctor from his 1996 album, Dr. Octagonecologyst, with the line, “Carvel don’t tell — your whole crew is ice cream fudge” from the iconic track, “3000.”
