This Tokyo-based fashion editorial is the perfect example of how styles with American origins can be translated into chic streetwear overseas. For its Spring/Summer 2018 collection, cult favorite label Stüssy embraced a nostalgic approach with retro motifs, colorways and relaxed fits. With this year's silhouettes, the streetwear brand sought out to show off its California-cool heritage. As a result, the Spring/Summer 2018 capsule combines strong workwear motifs with laid-back street and skatewear staples.
In turn, GRIND literally "recontextualizes the range" by elevating the slouchy jackets, the branded retro crew necks and the patterned short sleeve button-ups in a Tokyo-based fashion narrative. GRIND's 2018 streetwear editorial fuses Stüssy's undoubtedly strong Americana influence with the eerie appeal of East Asia.
