As part of the 30th anniversary (XXX) special projects, Stussy has teamed up with Ricoh to produce a co-branded GR Digital III camera. Ricoh, the Japanese electronics company founded in 1936, has previously never collaborated with a brand to offer a customized camera body in their cult favorite GR Digital line.
Inspired by friends who use the brand's equipment, such as Japan based photographer Rip Zinger, Stussy was impressed by the size, looks and performance of the Ricoh GR series.
To celebrate the Stussy x Ricoh GR Digital III release, Stussy will curate and present a photo project featuring virtual galleries photographers who we have worked with or admired over our 30-year history. Expect these images to start appearing on Stussy.com in early 2010.
Limited quantities of the Stussy x Ricoh camera will be produced and available for purchase through Stussy Chapter stores. Available in early February, 2010.
